Cyanogen has proclaimed officially that it will support Android One smartphones. Now Android One smartphones can taste the CyanogenMod 11 fabricated based on Android 4.4 Kitkat, with an update to Lollipop based CM12 in progress.

Cyanogen specified that the release was important in various ways:

This release represents a few firsts for us. Not only are these the first Android One devices and first official release of CM for these devices, the Android One device is the first ever officially supported Mediatek device. Mediatek (MTK) devices have been notoriously difficult for the developer community to complete fully functional bring-ups, and this marks a milestone in that effort.

Since October 2014 the CM11 port is accessible for Android One devices, yet that version does not support use of dual SIM cellular radios data. Those issues have been properly fixed. As there isn’t much to separate the Android One devices regarding hardware, Cyanogen is revealing a unified ROM with the devices codenamed sprout that will run on all present gen hardware: Spice Dream Uno, Karbonn Sparkle V and Micromax’s Canvas A1.
