The Cyanogen is known for creating alternative ROMs for Android, has been undergoing a major restructuring process. Earlier these were expected and finally arrived that the Cyanogen OS will be abandoned and the company will focus on a project that was already in hand, the Cyanogen Modular OS.

The Cyanogen’s plans were always clear. They intended to grow and become responsible for the third largest mobile operating system based on AOSP (Android Open Source Project) and make space in the manufacturers where Google has a dominant presence. The truth is that beyond the OnePlus One this company never achieved a significant expression, which would ultimately dictate part of their current problems.

The restructuring process, that was underway promised big changes and now it has just announced. The Cyanogen will leave the operating system and focus more on the customization and integration of applications in the operating system, and for it created the Cyanogen Modular OS.

The idea is to use parts of the operating system and provide them to manufacturers and users by integrating them in any version of Android as a customization.

The concept of Mods is not a new project, with the Cyanogen already before shown their full potential in a partnership with Microsoft. But the difference now is that the mods will be the only aspect that will be explored and developed. The idea is to provide this integration to brands, further enhancing the potential of applications.

But in addition to this change in strategy and even software, Cyanogen has also changed its internal structure. Kirt McMaster, one of the co-founders of Cyanogen, which was until now the CEO will assume the role of Executive Chairman of the company Board. Steve Kondik, the other co-founder and CTO, will assume the role of CSO (Chief Science Officer). For the CEO place of Cyanogen is now entering Lior Tal.
