It’s my pleasure to relay the super news that with the release of CyanogenMod 7.1 SEMC devices are officially supported. Surprisingly the news from the blog leaves out the X10 family (X10, X10 mini pro and X10 mini), although the X8 is listed, as I’ve been following the news before this I’m assuming this is a typo and as soon as there’s confirmation. According to the announcement there will be forums created over at the cm site shortly.
So what does this mean for your favourite custom firmware? Well, it does mean that, with better support for cm from SE, the experience for all community builds will be smoother and most firmware is built from the CM nightly builds so may not change a great deal. That said it may have the knock on effect of a lot of users migrating to the official CyanogenMod and leaving the many variants behind. Either way it will be interesting following what happens from here!
