Well, this news is surely going to make OnePlus One owners in India rejoice. They now have an option to receive updates from the Cyanogen OS, if they still have it installed.
OnePlus’s India office revealed today, that all the preceding legal issues with Micromax have been resolved, which will now enable OnePlus One users in India to keep receiving over-the-air updates to the Cyanogen OS.
The battle between Indian smartphone manufacturer, Micromax, and OnePlus began in December, when Micromax slammed a lawsuit against OnePlus. The lawsuit claimed that the OnePlus One’s Cyanogen labelling was in breach of Micromax’s exclusive agreement with Cyanogen to use its operating system in India. The Indian court also banned the sale of OnePlus One for sometime, and it lifted the ban in January.
OnePlus One India blog issued this update, today, which reads,”Five months hence, we are happy to confirm today that all legal proceedings have been resolved and the cases have been withdrawn through mutual consent. We hate donning suits and ties anyways. To make things sweeter, we would like to re-assure our customers and fans in India that our flagship phone, the “OnePlus One” will continue to receive OTA updates from Cyanogen in-line with our users in markets around the world.”
The lawsuit pushed OnePlus to come out with its own replacement for Cyanogen OS, it created an Android-based operating system, named as “Oxygen OS”. Recently, the company pushed an update for the new Oxygen OS.
