CyanogenMod, one of the most tweakable custom rom will be split in two different variants. This unexpected move follows the team’s aim of providing a seamless experience while conserving the open nature of the rom.
The team behind this popular rom is aiming high, by re-balancing their efforts be making the ‘open experience’ easier for the beginner user, but at the same time have something for more advanced users thanks to the upcoming release of both a Community Edition and Pro Edition version of the ROM detailed at Android BBQ.
The Pro edition may sound confusing but it’s actually the same rom with certain elements such as root access turned off by default. This particular version also comes signed with CM’s own privates keys with the effort to make this variant more secure.
