Dirty Unicorns, one of the legendary ROMs that has plagued the internet since my Android KitKat days has officially said good bye in a blog post.
In a blog post posted a while ago, Founder, Alex Cruz, has just announced that Dirty Unicorns would no longer be in operation from now on. Devices that were once supported and updated would no longer receive updates from the team. The founder has announced that the full team backing the project has been released as he plans to pursue Twitch live streams moving forward.
The developer has also announced that they would be keeping the GitHub repository online for folks who plan to update or take notes from the project. However, all of their social media channels, including Discord would be terminated from now on, leading users to switch to other ROMs.
With Dirty Unicorns now out of the scene, Android Q build from the team wouldn’t be coming and it’s time for new ROMs to emerge as we move forward. Over the past few years, we’ve seen many projects from developers emerge. However, Dirty Unicorns was among the first major development projects that contributed to the library of ROMs, keeping enthusiasts running.
With the development team finally released, we could expect these developers to make it some major OEMs over the next few years, such as how Paranoid Android’s team had been recruited by OnePlus during the development of HydrogenOS. Where these developers would end up or who the rest of the team consists of remains a mystery for now. Regardless, we can’t wait to see what happens moving forward.
