While I’m personally not interested in the whole Android rooting, hacking, and custom ROM scene, I know a lot of you are, and the name Steve Kondik probably rings a few bells. He was the guy who started CyanogenMod, one of the most popular Android ROMs currently in existence. Steve famously left his baby to go work for Samsung in August 2011. While he’s yet to talk about what exactly he did for Samsung, he did just announce that he’s left the company on his Google+ page.

Why did he leave? Steve doesn’t say. He just offers a vague statement saying he wanted to try something new and that he should have something to announce in a few months. Could someone have offered him more money? Your guess is as good as mine.
