Cyanogen appears to be unstable when it comes to the OTA update issue that is being focused by the tech media in India ever since the firm signed an exclusive deal with Micromax.
In the last week, Cyanogen published a blog post claiming that the OnePlus One smartphone will receive the OTA firmware updates for the global devices even those of Indian users. Following this, the firm appears to have taken different path and has now published yet another blog post in which it claims that the OTA update will not be applicable for those Indian users who have bought the OnePlus One from Amazon.
The idea behind the Micromax to sign an exclusive partnership with Cyanogen could be to highlight the operating system on its Yu brand of smartphones, thereby drawing the attention from consumers from OnePlus One to Yu.
Notably, those OnePlus users who have imported the devices from US can still receive the update in India. As per the deal, only Micromax can have the official build of Cyanogen in India. Though users can flash it to their devices, it is disappointing that a smartphone with impressive aspects and appropriate pricing will not support official updates.
