Earlier this week, a blog post from OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei had us worried the device wouldn’t be able to run Cyanogen software in India, but it looks like that won’t be the case. In an update from Cyanogen, the company promised to keep supporting all OnePlus One units, even those in India.
“We wanted to address a couple points of inaccurate information that have come out over the past week,” Cyanogen wrote. “We had not commented earlier as we believe in treating our partners and users with the utmost respect.”
At the same time, Cyanogen will move forward with plans to launch a new line of YU devices in India through a partnership with Micromax. For now, it looks like both YU and the OnePlus One should be able to co-exist. What happens in the future is a little less clear.
Moving forward, it seems possible OnePlus and Cyanogen’s partnership won’t last much longer. The Chinese phone-maker says it’s already working on its own version of Android 5.0 Lollipop, though for now running Cyanogen on your OnePlus One shouldn’t be an issue no matter where you live.
