    No reason they shouldn't. The question will come down to chipset and processor. Snapdragon should have good compatibility.

    I'm gonna tell you now, they do. All of the alternative apps to flashlite to Google's YouTube app; they all work

    Cyanogenmod is based on AOSP, not sure why an application wouldn't work with Cyanogenmod if it works with a Nexus device.

    The problem I find is that a number of apps won't work because the app either checks whether the phone is rooted (eg. the '3 at Home' app and the 'BlinkBox' app), or the app is only available on a whitelist of devices (eg. SkyGo). So in theory, any app could run on the device, but in practice, they don't because of often arbitrary controls built into the app.

    So - with that in mind - has anyone got any idea how to get past these controls? I particularly want to get the '3 at Home' app and the 'BlinkBox' app working.

    Well there are about 1.4 million Android apps available (Probably more if you include unofficial apps). I can definitely say that not all apps will work on the OPO. Although most apps will work because Cyanogen is very close to pure android. For example one can not cast ones screen to the Chromecast even though the hardware is the same if not better than other android phones that can cast. For some reason Google has decided to exclude the OPO from this functionality. In the past I have even found certain apps that don't work with Nexus devices. So the short answer is most apps will work but there is no guarantee even if you go pure android.

    I don't have an OPO yet, but I have found that some of my other devices with CM sometimes get a "This app is not compatible with your device" message when I visit them on the play store. However, I can still install them manually. I'm not sure what it is checking to conclude that it doesn't work. CLAPP is a major offender here.
