End Of CyanogenMod-Begin Of Lineage OS. CyanogenMod a very famous android OS is about to Dead. CyanogenMod’s parent firm Cyanogen Inc. announced to close all operations on December 31, 2016, and end official software support for all partners.
Its very bad news for Android Community Most Favorite CyanogenMod has shut down its entire server systems including the CyanogenMod’s online repositories and has gone in silent mode. CyanogenMod’s moderator confirmed the news on Twitter and said goodbye to the fans.
End Of CyanogenMod OS:
In a brief blog post released on Friday(23th Dec), they announced that, “As part of the ongoing consolidation of Cyanogen, all services and Cyanogen-supported nightly builds will be discontinued no later than 12/31/16. The open source project and source code will remain available for anyone who wants to build CyanogenMod personally.”
CyanogenMod, was one of the most used Android fork by Smartphone users, especially for the Android Geeks for making Custom Roms . The community had made flashing Custom Rom on different Android devices easy and getting best out of phone to keep updated with latest Android Version.
It was the most Stable and trusted working ROM in market. They have covered almost all android devices.So now Official CyanogenMod 14.1 is the last and final CyanogenMod built.
Begin Of Lineage OS:
While this is bad news for the community, the good news is that Cyanogen is leaving an open-source initiative behind called Lineage. Using this, developers will be able to pick up the latest CyanogenMod code, and continue developing on a personal level if they so desire. This is the only way the ROM will live on. But do not expect any breakthrough in the time to come.
Basically Lineage OS is another CyanogenMod as the current team of CyanogenMod are working on any other project and the name of the project is Lineage OS and they have also launched website and named as Lineage OS which will take place of CyanogenMod from where the CM has left.
It will be same as CM but there be one different is that the name only and everything will be same. Lineage OS official website is also launched you can check it LineageOS so for those who are thinking that from now there will be no updates regarding custom ROM and nightly build than they don’t have to worry LineageOS will cover all these things very soon. The project is still in stealth mode.
Lineage, a fork of the current open-source code, is still in the formation phase. But if you’d like to join the legions of developers, maintainers and users.
Here are a few websites and social networking accounts that you should bookmark.
There is no official announcement regarding when will the Lineage OS available as no one knows when this new OS will take place of CM. It might take some time but whenever it will be released it will be came with big bang.
As of now, the Lineage OS has simply begun a web site for the OS has been launched, new social media accounts have gone live. We all have to wait when we will see the primary version of the new OS, prepared for testing and use.
If you are a developer, then you can pick up the open-source bits from here. Just make sure you know exactly what you are doing.
It’s sad to see Cyanogen put up a white flag just like that , but given their state, it was probably in the best interest to let things go for good.
