[ROM][5.0.1]CyanogenMod 12 For Micromax Canvas Magnus A117


Hi guys ! Its been a long time we released a ROM for the Micromax A117 and here we are with the biggest release ! Its the Android Lollipop on the Micromax A117. It took us a while to compile Android Lollipop with Mediatek old blobs causing a lot of hindrance to boot it up.

Eventually with Mediatek being closed source its been a big task to bring up such stuff on the phones that use their chipset. But with lot of developers in the mediatek android community working together it has achieved huge strides in the field of custom ROM development. Initially it was the bringing up of CM11 and now the next version CM which is the lollipop.

Eventually we have managed to boot it up in the form of CyanogenMod by compiling it from source and here we are with the initial alpha release. You can expect all sorts of bugs in an alpha release and this build is no exception to it.


We have to thank xda recognized developer Chrmhoffman for his work on cm11 on mt6589 which acted as base for all the mt6589 development. We would like to thank the guys at IRC channel who helped us whenever needed.
