After five months of legal proceedings later, Cyanogen and OnePlus have resolved their dispute through mutual consent. Cyanogen says OnePlus One users in India would continue to receive Over The Air (OTA) updates from Cyanogen, along with users around the world. This follows a restriction placed on OnePlus, which was stopped from shipping or selling its smartphones in India following an interim injunction by the Delhi High Court in December last year. Micromax had complained that its exclusive rights had been infringed by OnePlus launching OnePlus One in the country which was running a custom version of Cyanogenmod. Micromax has an exclusive license for India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Pakistan and Myanmar regions from the same company, while OnePlus has a global non-exclusive license for Cyanogen. The OS maker has repeatedly changed its stance during the course of this dispute. Earlier this week, Cyanogen raised an undisclosed amount of strategic investment from electronics manufacturer Foxconn. The platform said it would use the funding to add employees to its team and accelerate software development of the open OS platform. Note that, less than two months ago, Azim Premji’s PremjiInvest led a Series C funding round of $80 million in Cyanogen. Among the other investors who participated in this round were Twitter Ventures, Qualcomm, Telefonica Ventures, Rupert Murdoch and Andreessen Horowitz along with existing investors.
