Cyanogenmod Gapps error with SetupWizard

I saw that CM13 is out and it brings Android 6.0.1 (r17) goodies such as the battery saving ‘doze’ functionality and new permissions model, alongside the usual set of CM features. I have an HTC m8 sitting around which I figure was due for a custom rom right about now, so I downloaded and install a copy of CM 13 from https://get.cm. everything went well as expected. I downloaded a copy of google apps from opengapps and installed it next and thats where things took a turn for the worse, as soon as I booted into CM i started getting errors of setup wizard being force closed over and over. I couldnt do anything but click the OK button over and over. So if you are getting a Cyanogenmod Gapps error this just may help you. I booted into TWRP and tried fixing permission with no luck on next boot into system. I tried re-flashing everything from a clean install again with same results. I saw that you could report the issue so I clicked the submit button and it let me see the actual error that was being thrown which looked partially like : AndroidRuntime: java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to create application com.google.android.setupwizard.SetupWizardApplication: java.lang.SecurityException: addOnSubscriptionsChangedListener: Neither user 10069 nor current process has android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE. luckily I had enabled debugging before I installed gapps. so I connected my phone to my computer, booted up ADB, check out my post on some basic ADB commands here if you need a refresher, and granted the permissions needed for the issue […]

Yuphoria phone gets Cyanogen OS 12.1 OTA

Yu’s Yuphoria phone will soon run on CyanogenMod 12.1, which is a customized version of Android 5.1. The phone has been available for half a year now in India. Its problem has been that its availability was in form of a CyanogenMod nightly that users had to flash a custom recovery and a custom ROM in order to access.       It was recently announced that a ready to use consumer-ready update of the stock software build is now ready for rollout. The Yuphoria phone has a YOG4PAS47N build which is an Android 5.1/Cyanogen OS 12.1 build. The upgrade brings devices to build number YNG1TBS2P2. After the earliest rollout will be completed and tests for bugs are resolved, the manually fastboot files will be released.   Apart from the usual features in Android 5.1, Yuphoria’s update will also include a redesigned launcher, a smart screen function where you can automatically adjust screen settings, a new version of AudioFx, a wider range of media codec support and a combined calendar with email function.   Source: Yu Yuphoria via AndroidPolice  

CyanogenMod 12.1snapshots available with AOSP’s security updates

CyanogenMod 12.1 snapshots are rolling out and they are comprised of the security updates that Google released in AOSP in November. CM snapshots are the most stable version of a custom ROM on the market right now, and they are usually pretty close to the original Android OS when it comes to releasing updates.       Keep in mind that this rollout will not move your device to Marshmallow yet, that will happen when CyanogenMod 13 hits. Among the builds you can already find are some Galaxy phones, the Moto X, E and G versions, some DROIDs, HTC One M7/M8, Nexus 7 and even Yureka Yu.   CyanogenMod snapshots show up every month or so and they manage to offer users stable and predictable experiences with less security and bug issues. If you want a stable custom ROM experience, you may want to flash this CM version. You can find the files in the source link below.   Source: CyanogenMod Snapshot Downloads

OnePlus One gets minor Cyanogen OS update

OnePlus One got an update today and there’s a new Cyanogen OS version out there for it. Considering the breakdown between OnePlus and Cyanogen, this is sort of a surprising move. We are not talking about a huge update, but about a few helpful bug fixes and minor updates. If the OTA hasn’t reached your phone yet, there are manual downloads available you can try.     The OTA ZIP file is 18MB in size, but in order to make it work you will need a stock version of the OS on your phone. In case you want the full ROM experience, the file is 600MB in size and it includes fastboot ZIPs. According to official forums, this Cyanogen OS forums, his update brings about some bug fixes and security updates, possible something like Stagefright. The usual OTA could prove to be failing, but the manual installs are reported as working.   OnePlus One is the only smartphone from the company still running on Cyanogen OS, but the company is working on moving it to its proprietary Oxygen OS as soon as possible. Considering that most OnePlus One users are still using the Cyanogen OS 12 version, this update will bring joy to many. Happy flashing!   Source: OnePlus Forums

OnePlus Two pics released by Chinese regulators

The OnePlus Two phone was officially released today by a Chinese regulator. Last year, OnePlus made a hit with their first smartphone, the super-hip powerful device which sold for only $299, obliterating the competition. Now, the company hopes to hit a home run with the Two, which is supposed to be the bigger better version of any flagship on the market.       OnePlus Two was supposed to launch officially next month, but TENAA, a Chinese wireless regulator, has already published some pictures of the device. It looks pretty much the same, but it has a new physical button that can save anything. This button is supposed to be the device’s extremely fast fingerprint scanner that OnePlus says is faster than Apple’s. According to some recent announcements, the OnePlus Two will have the aforementioned fingerprint scanner plus a Snapdragon 810 and 4GB of RAM and a USB Type-C connector. There have been hints at two SIM slots, but it was not confirmed yet. The price should be somewhere under $450, but we will have to wait until July 27th to find out more official details.
