News: CyanogenMod Team Announces It Will Drop Support For Devices Like The Nexus One
All good things must come to an end. The CyanogenMod team announced today that it will be dropping support for a handful of devices using a first generation Snapdragon processor. Devices with a QSD8x50, MSM7x25, MSM7x27 or MSM7x27T processor will not be supported beyond CyanogenMod 7.X, aka Gingerbread. This includes devices such as the Nexus One, HTC Desire, HTC Legend, HTC Hero and Sony Xperia X10.
The developers say that it is possible to run Jelly Bean and Ice Cream Sandwich on these devices, but that it would require too much time and too many hacks and that they do not feel it is worth it. The ROM would also not pass the Android Compatibility Test Suite, which could cause a lot of issues with Google Play apps and compatibility.
While this is certainly bad news, it is nice that the CM team is being forward with us and giving us reasons why these devices will not be supported.
