LETs ALL stop using cyanogen and made it disappear from the earth! I am so ASHAMEd of using this OS! Will flash my phone, don't want to support this Con Company any more!!!!
This was a poor business decision, it will cost them a lot more to go to court then the termination fees to end the contract. I am unsure what will come of one plus one but with a new handset on the horozion one can assume that there own ROM or perhaps color OS will be there next move if any at all, I know some people who have one and there quite happy on the release they have now. Updates are always nice but if your only adding features and not fixing existing problems then updates are pointless. IMO lollipop is not ready for mainstream market and perhaps larger manufacturers should wait, that is why you see a lot of the features non existent in Samsung's reiteration. ART unstable on most Google store apps..to many to go on about
Be honest, I don't like the way OnePlus doing the business with the silly 'invite' system and never buying anything from this guy with that stupid marketing games. But a contract is a contract, if Cyanogen did signed exclusive international right, it shouldn't sign another exclusive right with the other firm. That's not a way of doing business Cyanogen if u want last long. Just wondering, why don't those new comers using the stocked android instead, I love stocked android, believe many people do.

And I disagree about your view on western markets.. Bad quality..
[deleted post]"Chinese products" Oppo, One plus one, Xiaomi mi, Meizu Mx4 (Chinese products) are one of the best built smartphone with magnesium and metal frame Unlike US products like apple that have only cheap aluminium body that bend.... US and most western products are the worst on the market... Most western products choose marketing over quality.
Money Matters the most. Unfortunate treatment of ethics. All enabled in Contract.
[deleted post]All micromax phones are chinese produvts only... Ha..ha.. Just brand name is differen. M
[deleted post]Are you kidding me. have you ever held a micromax phone. They are literary sh*t. Poor H/W and built with slow OS. My brother owns a oneplus and it is a great phone with extremely good H/W, S/W and built quality. Please don't insult a company for no reason.

The saddest part is that he didn't "man up" and just negotiated (pay) OnePlus to remove India from their non-exclusive contract.
It's this lack of business "balls" and ethic that spells disaster for Cyanogen Inc (and let's just hope the community developers of Cyanogenmod don't get fed-up and leave!).
Cyanogen Inc appear to be the 3rd greediest company after Apple and Samsung. Cyanogen I hope your sh**** company will fail. I think any serious phone manufacturer won't make a contract after this case. Cyanogen you s**k.

The Cyanogen and OnePlus contract says that any legal issues are to be resolved in court of Calfornia.. So as I said the deal doesn't have a legal standing in India (it is also an observation made by the Indian High Court judge in the case)
Obviously OnePlus can take legal action in California..
[deleted post]The YU (and every other micromax phone) are just rebranded coolpads which are made in China.
Why is cm installer only available for year-old devices? How long will it take until current flagships get support?
Cyanogenmod has proved that they are cheaters.They have lost all whatever sympathy they had.This episode has exposed Cyanogenmods true colours.
Sahil134, 20 Dec 2014Cynagen should be banned in india by doing fraud and micromax too be banned for creating such ... morecorrect... agree with u brother... cyanogen pulled its own leg n lost its place in everyone's heart by doing this forgery... i hate them now n also hate micromax... i curse their yureka turn out to be a flop device n no one buys it in future... will support one plus one for its outstanding effort for making the device available with top specifications on a mid range... well done one plus...
Now CYANOGEN got bad reputation in educated circle and among sensible buyers. One plus one earned their reputation by doing something new in market but CYANOGEN lost reputation by doing forgery business in market and minds of customers. One plus one will reach at top position because his phone is really smart . Android 5.0.1 lollipop is best in all aspects. One plus one should choose pure Android version.

I expect Cyanogen will probably go and settle with One Plus in the near future to avoid any court hang-ups.
