Cyanogen finds another way to flail by shutting down all services Dec 31st

Emotional, Burning, Unlimited Tuned Laboratory

I can’t blame you if you haven’t been following the saga of Cyanogen, the company that started back in 2013 with the idea to take the vibrant world of Android modifications and turn them into an OS and a viable business. Over the past few months, as Android Police has dutifully chronicled, Cyanogen has beset itself with a relentless cycle of drama and confusion. It’s the sort of thing you can only really keep track of if you like train wrecks and are able to turn off the part of your brain that allows for empathy for Cyanogen’s employees and users.

Now, the latest: the custom services that Cyanogen provides to phones that run its OS will be shut down on December 31st and the “nightly builds” of said OS will no longer be produced.
