Lineage OS Gerrit is Up, Access it here!

Article: December 25, 2016



CyanogenMod is dead, but the company will work on a new project named "Lineage" that will be used to define the custom Android releases.



Lineage OS (Another open-source operating system for smartphones and tablet, based on the Android mobile platform) will be a continuation of what CyanogenMod was, However Lineage OS is still in formation phase. The success of this project depend entirely on how much support it receives from the development community.


So, yes, this is us. LineageOS will be a continuation of what CyanogenMod was. To quote Andy Rubin, this is the definition of open. A company pulling their support out of an open source project does not mean it has to die.
Check back for more information on Tuesday.   - Lineage Team | December 24, 2016

So, we will be getting more information regarding the Lineage OS on Tuesday i.e. on 27th December. We'll continue to post any major Lineage news right here on TechDroider.

You can follow Lineage OS at LineageOS.org, Twitter, Facebook and Google+

In a press release issued by Cyanogen, the Company has announced the shut down of all the services including the support of CyanogenMod nightly builds.


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.

The Company launched its first CyanogenMod build (which is an open-source operating system based on Android OS) release, version 3.1 based on Android Cupcake, back on July 1st 2009.



CyanogenMod grew in popularity, and a community of developers, called the CyanogenMod Team made contributions. Over 50 million people run CyanogenMod on their handset.

R.I.P. Cyanogen: Company's plan to 'put a bullet through Google's head' backfires!


The company will work on a new project named "Lineage" that will be used to define the custom Android releases.
