Cyanogen isn’t feeling the Google love

Cyanogen isnt feeling the Google love Android users may well have heard about the CyanogenMod. It’s an optimized and tweaked build of Android based on bits of Donut and some excellent contributions from Now, whilst ROM cooking and tweaking has been going on for years with Windows Mobile, it seems that Google isn’t letting this happen with cyanogen receiving a cease and desist letter from Google themselves. Meh ? What happened to the open source vibe?

Since then a petition app has become available but it seems that a peaceful solution might still be available.
