Cyngn started off as a modification of a popular Rom on OG droid devices. It quickly became the top Rom of the Android community and eventually was the Rom that all other Roms were based on. Steve Kondik the rom founder eventually pivoted this rom into a multimillion dollar corporation. The software eventually found itself on OEM devices like the OnePlus One. The project ended up in shambles, but the community behind Rom development spun off into LineageOS.
It looks like Cyngn has backed down from smartphone software and is now focusing on autonomous self-driving car tech. The job listing page shows they are looking for employees with experience in the field. They have also received a permit for testing self driving cars. Who ever would have seen this outcome for Cyngn 5 years ago?
