A big round of applause to the folks at Oppo and Cyanogen Inc as the Oppo N1 becomes the first Google-approved CyanogenMod phone. The announcement came yesterday via Google Groups as the device was certified to have passed through Google’s CTS and CDD certification programs which is a major milestone for everyone working on this project.


So what does this mean? Well, it allows the Oppo N1 to legitimately run Google’s suite of apps and provides direct access to the Google Play Store. In other words, it provides the Oppo N1 the officially licensed Google Apps package which is what all CyanogenMod users having been side-loading for years.


There was plenty of skepticism that the device would make it through the certification process as few have attempted what Oppo and Cyanogen are forging with their partnership. However, the folks at in Seattle at the CM headquarters should be offering pats on the back for everyone right now for a job well done.


Congrats guys, you’ve earned it.
