CYANOGENMOD WILL LIVE ON AS LINEAGE OS
Yesterday, we told you about the news of Cyanogen services being shut down. Well, this was a sad news for all those CyanogenMod lovers as they will now have to rely on the community for ROM updates and Cyanogen itself won’t be providing any ROM Updates, Bug Fixes, etc. But, do you know CyanogenMod isn’t going anywhere. Before explaining about this thing, here is what the new blog post of CyanogenMod Blog says –
Embracing that spirit, we the community of developers, designers, device maintainers and translators have taken the steps necessary to produce a fork of the CM source code and pending patches. This is more than just a ‘rebrand’. This fork will return to the grassroots community effort that used to define CM while maintaining the professional quality and reliability you have come to expect more recently.
LINEAGE OS IS COMING
Well, CyanogenMod will live on as Lineage OS, and we had already heard about it when the news about Cyanogen Services being shut down was heard for the first time. Lineage OS will retain the legacy of CyanogenMod. The developers are now working on PLAN B. The blog post on the official Lineage blog says –
Yes, this is us. LineageOS will be a continuation of what CyanogenMod was. To quote Andy Rubin, this is the definition of open. A company pulling their support out of an open source project does not mean it has to die.
For the developers, the source code is there on GITHUB. Now, with this news, we are sure that CyanogenMod will be back soon as Lineage OS. And yes, remember that Cyanogen is Dead, not Cyanogenmod!
