A bit of sad news has been making its rounds as we all succumbed to the massive food coma from Noche Buena, Cyanogen is ceasing operations at the end of the year. Several press releases have highlighted changes in the structure within Cyanogen, which include: consolidating its operations in Palo Alto, California and the recent news that the company will be parting ways with its co-founder, Steve Kondik. The big news, however, was delivered via their most recent post in their News Roon.
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.
So there you have it, folks! With this announcement, Cyanogen will reportedly move towards building add-ons for Android instead of building replacements for it that have been featured in smartphones, such as the One Plus One. As for Kondik, our source mentions that he may be intending to relaunch CyanogenMod via crowdfunding efforts.
