It’s been very long since I made something for the Android One users, they have received no ‘L’ goodies for like 3-4 months. Well, the lack of sources was the reason for it. But to make that up, Android One users are going to be the first on the receiving end for the all new CyanogenMod 12.1, well even before the Xperia L.
Cutting to the main part now, this release is marked BETA even if full hardware is functional (yes you heard right) because there is a dense possibility that bugs may get discovered by the users than what I believe to be bug-free considering the various permutations and combinations performed by users in their usage.
That being told, the important fact about this build is it’s completely unified for all 10 Android One Devices. It’s based on Google’s updated kernel base of Linux 3.10
Crave some eye candy?
#1 : You need to be on latest LP firmware which contains new bootloader, it’s needed on this build.
– Perform a full clean install (Wipe cache, data, system)
– Install the ZIP
– Flash GAPPS
ThunderZap 3.0 brings updated support of ThunderZap kernel for Android One devices. The kernel contains all features which were present in ThunderZap 2.5 along with following changes.
– Universal compatibility across stock and CM12.1
– Updated to upstream Linux 3.10.73
– Rewritten Vibration Control for Linux 3.10
While this release may not seem to be a major release, it certainly is. Since Google migrated from Linux 3.4 to Linux 3.10, a lot of changed had to be optimized for the new base which involved a lot of work. It is after this release, more features will begin to roll out.
And with the new Kernel OTA updates feature of the ThunderZap Control app set to release soon, sprout users are going to be real happy with updating their kernel on the air.
