CyanogneMod will have to start generating revenue, sonner or later.
What do you think will happen then? Bloat, "premium" features and the rest of the works to get money from people.
Ethos-Evoss, 03 Oct 2014I never liked this mod ! I hate their two colours only light blue and black .. blee too dark .... moreIf only there was a way to download *something* that would do exactly that, restore the original look and feel of you manufacturer.
Oh the irony!
Heck, you can even choose the favorite look and feel from manufacturers other than your own!
Brighter than ever with Micromax? Seriously!?
I hope that isn't an exclusivity deal, because that would be the polar opposite of bright.
Cyanogenmod is successful because it puts a fantastic ROM in fantastic hardware. Remove the fantastic hardware part (HTC, LG, Sony, ...) and you are splitting hairs between many other unsuccessful Chinese and Indian manufacturers.
Ethos-Evoss, 03 Oct 2014I never liked this mod ! I hate their two colours only light blue and black .. blee too dark .... moreApparently you aren't aware of what Cyanogenmod can do. It has a built in theme engine which can make your phone look like any phone or way you like, not just blue and black as you think. And the reason why the stock theme is blue and black is because that is what stock Android comes with, it's called Holo, which will be swopped out for Materiel Design when Android L comes, then the default theme will be Materiel Design. So you can get any look and feel you want with Cyanogenmod's performance and features! Time for you to custom ROM mate ;)
cyanogen needs to be stand alone google and micrososft should not have no business with cyanogen

I check whether the device is popular and uses a Qualcomm chipset (they release all their source which makes it easy for Cyanogenmod) then I know the phone will get Cyanogenmod for sure
reaktor, 03 Oct 2014Coz they want microsoftReally? what would android dev do at microsoft? serve tea?
The Realist, 03 Oct 2014I am so glad they gave Google the finger. Cyanogenmod is the epitome of what Android should be... moreDon't think they gave Google the finger, i think they want more money before selling. Then again i hope they don't cos i'll want a stable custom rom that can give my age old devices longer life.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2014Cyanogen refused to be bought because Google was doing all that it said it WOULD NOT do. P... moreIndeed, it was google's cheap corporate attempt to stifle Cyanogenmod rather than further their cause.
P., 03 Oct 2014Me too. Cyanogenmod ROM allows my Nexus run on clean Android without Google's proprietary apps... moreYeah,the day CyanogenMod ceases to exist or be independent is the day i abandon android for a different platform.

Cyanogenmod ROM allows my Nexus run on clean Android without Google's proprietary apps and services which cannot be uninstalled and is always running in background with full permissions doing god knows what.

Before buying any phones, I always checked if there is any CM ROM available for the devices. Such a great custom ROM!
I base smartphone purchase on Cyanogen support. If device is supported i'm gonna buy it. Otherwise i'll avoid it. Reason? I'm currently using rather old Galaxy S2 with Android 4.4.4. Something i'd never get from Samsung...
