Cyanogen Inc to Shutdown CyanogenMod by December 31, project will continue as LineageOS

CyanogenMod is now dead or will die within the week. Through separate blog posts released over the past few days, both Cyanogen Inc. and CyanogenMod have announced the end, but know that there is a replacement on the way.

On December 23, a member of the remaining Cyanogen Inc. team posted to their company blog a very cold and short notice that Cyanogen services and CyanogenMod nightly builds would be discontinued no later than December 31. That short note also mentioned the fact that the open source project and source code would remain available for anyone who wants to build CM personally.


Then on December 24, the CyanogenMod team took to their own blog to explain the situation, what it meant for CyanogenMod in the future, why they’ll have to move outside of the “CyanogenMod” name to find success again, and what’s next.

With that said, if the idea of CyanogenMod is something you’ll need in your life going forward, you should follow Lineage OS. Work on it has already begun, a website has been established, and the new “fork will return to the grassroots community effort that used to define CM.”
