Cyanogen confirms release of cyanogen OS 12.1 in August and poses a riddle

By July 30th, 2015 AT 1:25 PM

Cyanogenmod is perhaps the most famous custom ROM that tech savvy people and geeks have loved for its customisability over the years and is the most flashed custom ROM after unlocking the bootloader and flashing custom recovery. Cyanogen had last year taken a step in a new direction when it partnered with Oneplus to come up with its own operating system called cyanogen OS which came as the default operating system on all Oneplus One devices across the globe except for China.

Earlier this year Cyanogen signed an exclusive deal with Micromax in India for bundling its operating system on its ‘YU’ series of phones of which Yureka and Yuphoria currently run it. This had led to bitterness between Oneplus and Cyanogen and forced the former to bake their own version of android which they later named Oxygen OS. The current version of Cyanogen OS is 12 which is based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. Cyanogen has finally declared that the much awaited Cyanogen OS 12.1 will arrive for the Oneplus One, Yureka and Yuphoria phones in August.

Cyanogen OS 12 has a few productivity apps which come bundled with the operating system like swift keyboard for fast typing, Boxer app as a better email client, baton for continuity between different android devices similar to Apple’s handoff feature. Cyanogen will also be bundling its own homegrown chromium based browser called Gello and boxer calendar app to replace chrome browser and google calendar in the future releases of OS.  Cyanogen OS 12.1 will also bring the innate features of Android 5.1 like VoLTE support for devices that are LTE capable

The tweet by cyanogen which confirms the release timeframe of Cyanogen OS 12.1 also teases the users with a riddle. It is not clear what cyanogen is hinting with the picture of a toy horse in the palm of a hand. Is it hinting at the impatient users and asking them to hold their horses? or is it a hidden clue towards a release date? What do you reckon and decipher from the image in the tweet? let us know your thoughts and conclusions in your comments below.

maybe to hold our horses. but i think its gonna be awesome


I am facing a trivial issue while typing the comments on my Yu Yuphoria using SwiftKey keyboard. When I type a few alphabets of a word and touch the predicted word, the outcome is typed alphabets+predicted word. I face this issue only on TT. In this comment, so far, I typed without prediction. Here, I am going to repeat the first sentence again using prediction to show you the problem.

I also faced this issue on Swiftkey keyboard on my Redmi 2. But it was gone once I restarted the phone.


@dskushwaha and @Akhil Mohan
Exactly the SAME thing happend to me today (30 June) around 07:30 am … drove me crazy as half the words were coming followed by the predictive text input. As we all faced it on TT (with different handsets & service providers) guess it was some bug in the WordPress backend. Lets monitor this, and if it happens again Ill consult with Tarun on the same.


i am also facing this issue on swiftkey on Mi3 but on all website/whatsapp.
