Cyanogen Inc. shuts down services and OS; open-source CyanogenMod project will remain

Sneaking the massive information at the lengthy vacation weekend, Cyanogen Inc. has introduced discontinuation of the running device and all services by way of December 31. In step with the professional observation, CyanogenMod OS and supply code will remain to be had for the neighborhood.

The formidable startup aimed to construct a greater model of Android, however the instrument gained lukewarm reaction since the OEMs didn’t wish to ditch the Google ecosystem. After which, there have been problems with companions like OnePlus who ditched the alliance straight away after the primary day trip with OnePlus One.

The announcement used to be made in an overly uncharacteristic and temporary lavatory publish:

As a part of the continued consolidation of Cyanogen, all services and Cyanogen-supported nightly builds will be discontinued no later than 12/31/16. The open supply project and supply code will remain to be had for any person who desires to construct CyanogenMod for my part.

Whilst unexpected, the announcement isn’t stunning, in point of fact. The corporate had lately laid off personnel, and we heard the scoop of the go out of its CEO in addition to any other co-founder. The corporate will now glance to pivot in opposition to a modular running device that may paintings with Android, which they’ll hope will be extra horny to OEMs.
