Google has taken a dim view of the CyanogenMod Installer, an app that makes it easier to install alternative firmwares on Android phones, leading its developers to pull it from the Google Play Store.The installer was the first major undertaking by Cyanogen Inc., the Seattle company recently formed to promote CyanogenMod, its open-source alternative Android build for smartphones and tablets; it’s intended to replace official distributions of the mobile operating system.

I thought Android was supposed to be the open, user configurable, friendly, alternative OS. Guess Google wants it to be as closed as Apple IOS
