Being backed by Cyanogen Inc. even CyanogenMod would shut down.The developers, designers and other people who work at CyanogenMod have finally confirmed about the CyanogenMod being shut down. We also have a good news that, the people who worked at CyanogenMod are going to work on LineageOS. It is said, one can kill a product, but one can’t kill the person’s will to create a product.
What is the meaning of Lineage OS ?

The CyanogenMod Developer community doesn’t want people to misunderstand, don’t want to be questioned about quality for having ‘Cyanogen’ in the name. That’s why they’ve decided to work on LineageOS. Earlier, we heard rumors about CyanogenMod being renamed into Lineage OS, The rumors have finally come true!
