    Hi,
    CyanogenMod is a open source community that is developed using android AOSP(Android Open Source Community) as a base and there by including the different patches that are embedded into the code so that the ROM can be made more useful to the user the ROMS are more performance based and customization can be done to a larger extent that you can add weather to your lockscreen or you can edit the quick access buttons in the Notification drawer and also you can adjust the performance of these devices. Also there are not restriction in Cyanogen ROMs you can use that in your phones so that the phones can be utilized to their most performance. CyanogenMod is a community where they develop these roms for different devices. Also to find if there are any official devices available for your device you can log ON to www.cyanogenmod.com and see the List of devices supported.
    Hope this Helps.

    Well the caynogenmod is nothing but a kind of software in which you can run the unofficial softwares and you can even do unofficial os updates to your android phone. With launching this caynogenmod you can update unofficial versions of android which are generally not supported in default mode.

    Heyy

    Its just a different customized android operating system. It has roms for so many phones for whom the official higher version of android os isnt available.

    For example samsung said that galaxy s would not get ICS as it will not be compatible but it was and it was shown by cyanogenmod's custom rom. It was rooted in that phone and it worked flawlessly.

    You can enjoy ICS on lesser phones with lesser harware .

    Its a unofficial rom and should be used at your own risk. These roms are very good and stable.

    To use these you have to learn about rooting.

    Thank you
