XDA Forums Dedicated to LineageOS Now Live!
Many users wondered what would happen to CyanogenMod after CyanogenMod declared officially dead?
The Answer is LineageOs.
LineageOS in its current form is the re-branding of CyanogenMod. While developers and maintainers work to smoothly migrate all of their resources, custom ROM users have been looking for a place to discuss the new distribution.
XDA FORUM WROTE
The core objective on which XDA-Developers was launched in 2003 was to provide a common area for developers around the world to come together to modify, tweak, and generally improve the usability of their chosen devices. While the XDA forums were initially created with PDAs in mind, the advent of Windows Mobile OS and later Android made the website accessible to more users who were looking to get the most out of their devices.
Thus, CyanogenMod was born. The Android distribution traces its first steps on similar objectives — to modify, tweak, and improve the usability of Android devices. CyanogenMod started off rather humbly in the HTC Dream (G1) forum under the care of Steve ‘Cyanogen’ Kondik. With version after version and release after release, the ROM exploded in popularity and later expanded onto other, newer devices with more developers contributing to the project. The rest, as they say, is history.
The need of the hour is cooperation and collaboration, as the custom ROM community tries to revive perhaps the biggest contributor to development of any device to its former glory. In such times, we extend our forums as a place for developers and users alike to come together and work for the combined, greater good.
