As we all know very well that in the world of custom ROMs, CyanogenMod is perhaps the best known and most popular among the users. But, according to some recent statements, the Cyanogen Inc. may fail to play or have an active role in the development of CyanogenMod. Hence, it could be led Cyanogen Inc. to stop supporting CyanogenMod.
Cyanogen Inc. May Stop Supporting CyanogenMod
In the Custom ROM world (custom ROMs), the CyanogenMod is perhaps the best known and most popular among the users which also focuses more users around it, dragging a huge community. According to some recent statements, the Cyanogen Inc. may fail to play or have an active role in the development of CyanogenMod.
The Cyanogen Inc. is a company created by developers of CyanogenMod community who wanted to create a more commercial aspect to the experience gained in the development of ROMs.
After some partnerships that did not go well with brands like OnePlus and Lenovo, the company underwent a restructuring that led to a cut of 20% of its employees have been some rumours that there would be a shift in focus in its strategy, with a greater focus on developing Apps.
However, these rumours were quickly denied by the Steve Kondik, the co-founder of Cyanogen Inc., this ensured that his company would keep funding and will have the active role in the ROM development.
Now, according to a post from Steve Kondik on the CyanogenMod community, it seems that the future plans of CyanogenMod Inc. do not pass through supporting the development of ROM, allowing the development of CyanogenMod back fully into the hands of the community.
“There is not really going to be much if any Involvement from the Cyanogen Inc. this time around and I’m taking on a lot of stuff on my own to try and keep us moving forward”.
With this comment, the co-founder of the Cyanogen Inc. Steve Kondik says that his company has little or nothing is connected to the development of the ROM, and himself to take development forward.
Another problem that faces Cyanogen Inc., according to some rumours, it is the retention of its employees, as many have chosen to go against the current state of the company.
While some smartphones have already received initial phase of CM14, the strained relations between the Cyanogen Inc and CyanogenMod community can lead to some delays in the development of the new version of the ROM which is actually based on the latest version of Android, yes, Android 7.0 Nougat version, something that is not pleasing to many users as they are waiting impatiently for a more stable version of this ROM.
