With CyanogenMod discontinued and no longer supported, Wileyfox is in a bit of a pickle. The company used Cyanogen OS for its devices, and with that option now gone, the company is pushing forward on a strong note.
Wileyfox announced that it will be moving to a “purer” and “enhanced” Android experience. Whether this means the devices will get completely stock Android or a custom build of stock Android remains to be seen, but the entire lineup is getting an update.
“We strongly recommend that all current and future users accept the upcoming update request to ensure they are on-boarded for the future. This will include the ability to maintain the same experience as before and the added ability to partake in updates and upgrades to the software in the future.
“We will continue to push this update to your device, and for new users we again recommend they download and install this update upon purchase.”
Users will be getting an update that will move them away from Cyanogen. We wonder how many features will be lost in the process. This won’t be easy for anyone, including Wileyfox and its customers, so we hope that the transition will be as painless as possible.
