Cyanogen, the company behind the Cyanogen OS is shutting down operations at the end of this year, specifically on December 31, 2016. As part of this process, all services will be shutdown and development on nightly builds will cease from that day onwards.
As for CyanogenMod, the open source Android based operating system developed and maintained by the community, it will continue to exist solely on the efforts of developers who want to continue developing it as a personal project. The source code will remain available for anyone wanting to continue working on it.
The company revealed this information in a rather brief blog post.
They ditched OnePlus because of greed in favor of Micromax. Now they have closed shop!
Right, enjoy your dying app-less OS for now. Nothing can save it.
It used to be called CyanogenMod S then changed its name to Cyanogen OS.
