Cyanogen pulls the plug on its services and OS next week

Update: To no one’s surprise, things are changing for CyanogenMod. It’s forking into a new project, Lineage, that will revisit the “grassroots community effort” that used to define the custom Android releases. The CyanogenMod team couldn’t continue its work without the possibility of a brand sale “looming over their heads,” according to a statement, and the “stain” of Cyanogen’s corporate actions would be hard to separate from the mod group. In other words, CyanogenMod will live on — just not with that familiar name. – Richard Lawler, Engadget
