Cyanogen will continue to support OnePlus One in India; Micromax withdraws lawsuit
Last October, Android ROM developer Cyanogen reached an exclusive agreement with India's Micromax to drive the latter's line of Yu branded smartphones. This move seemed to take OnePlus by surprise. The company had just started to rollout its Cyanogen powered OnePlus One in India, and was quickly banned by an Indian court just 15 days after a high profile launch in the country. But the court lifted the ban, agreeing with OnePlus that its flagship spec'd phone is not competition for the entry-level Yu line.

Cyanogen and OnePlus ended their partnership at the end of last month, and the suit in India has been withdrawn by Micromax. This allows Cyanogen to continue supporting the OnePlus One in India with OTA updates. Cyanogen plans on supporting the handset, not just in India, but globally as well.


OnePlus released its own Android based ROM for the OnePlus One last month. Titled OxygenOS, the ROM provides enough customization to satisfy OnePlus users while maintaining a nearly stock Android look and feel.

Unfortunately, they already end their partnership, which left the future of Oneplus One devices without any support from Cyanogen any longer.

Nice to know. That doesn't take away the shade Cyanogen has been throwing though... I still don't support them.

Cyanogen seems to have gone from hero to zero pretty quickly. I remember being on xda waiting patiently for their roms.

Cyanogen mod is innocent. The bug is Cyanogen inc.

"But the court lifted the ban, agreeing with OnePlus that its flagship spec'd phone is not competition for the entry-level Yu line." From the sounds of it, OnePlus got sued for competing, not infringing any patent...no wonder India is still in a somewhat poverty moment; competition keeps getting sued for competing. Oh well, glad Cyanogen will keep rolling out updates for the OnePlus One. Oxygen OS is a complete privacy-invading joke (like stock Android) and I wouldn't have bought a OnePlus One if it came with that.
