Just started using CyanogenMod OS? Here are five top tips to get you started.
Customise with new themes
The CyanogenMod ROM includes a built-in theme engine with a huge number of downloads in both the free and paid for versions from the Play store. These themes can change every aspect of the OS, including the SystemUI notification pull down.
Customise with Trebuchet
A custom launcher is included called Trebuchet. It permits full customisation of the homescreen and includes full support for the CyanogenMod theme engine. Trebuchet is good, but not as feature packed as third-party alternatives.
Control of your lost device
When configuring CyanogenMod, you will be prompted to create a Cyanogen account. This can be used for the remote find and wipe services so that if you lose your device, you still have control.
CyanogenMod includes a number of applications that aren’t part of the base Android OS, such as a file manager, a DSP Manager (enabling you to tune the sound with a built-in graphic equaliser) and a messaging app with secure features.
A number of enthusiast options are included in CyanogenMod because, after all, it’s built by enthusiasts! Full CPU control is included, consequently enabling you to change the speed, governor and scheduler of your processor easily.
