Cyanogen Inc and OnePlus may have been all chummy when the OnePlus One smartphone launched a year ago. It’s a smartphone with high-end specs at a mid-range price, and one of the things that set it apart from the competition was its Cyanogen OS software.

But then the makers of the custom version of Android wanted to branch out, made an exclusive deal for the Indian market with another company, and things got kind of messy.

So it’s not particularly surprising that while Cyanogen has big plans for world domination global expansion, the company figures it’s unlikely that OnePlus will be launching any new phones with Cyanogen software.

  1. Goodbye Cyanogen, on your way out don’t let the door hit you where the good lord splitted you! 😛

  2. Well, in my interpretation it was Cyanogen that pulled a really nasty one on OPO, by not only going behind their back to another manufacturer (that’s sly, but it’s their choice), but also suing OPO in India and banning them for a while to sell phones (that’s however an Apple kinda move right there). It was a dick move that made Cyanogen look like a nasty group and even thou I don’t have an OPO I don’t plan to use Cyanogen on any phones I’ll own in the future.

  3. That’s sad, I love cyanogen os 12 on my OPO. Well what is the difference between cyanogen os and cyanogenmod? I know mod is open source and os is owned by cyanogen.
    Does cyanogenmod have the themes app? Really don’t care for the Baton app, as long as mod has all the software customizations and the themer app then I will be fine if I got a oneplus two and flashed cyanogenmod onto it.

    Oneplus better watch out, alcatel has a phone coming out with cyanogen os.
    The asus Zenfone 2 seems tempting also for the price

    1. yes cyanogenmod has the theme apps, it has all the goodies of cyanogen os minus all the new bloatware they are putting on.

      1. Well I actually like microsoft apps and services, no big deal, I just can download them from store.
        Isn’t baton exclusive to cyanogen os?
