OnePlus One names it ROM Oxygen OS
OnePlus One had to deal with a huge shock when Cyanogen Mod team concluded that they won’t be able to provide software updates in India due to exclusive agreement with Micromax subsidiary Yu in India, so they speeded their own ROM which was schedule to arrive with OnePlus Two. Now it officially has been named as Oxygen OS.
As many of you know, we will be launching our own ROM in the near future. We’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what this ROM means to us and our fans. We realized that, like everything we do, our true goal is to make the product that we ourselves would want to use—to make great technology more accessible for everyone. With our ROM, that means software that is open, customizable, and free of bloat and unnecessary features.
As you know OnePlus One has a huge community support and a version of Android Lollipop based CyanogenMod is already under development which any OnePlus One user can flash after rooting beside other great ROM like LiquidSmooth, SlimLP, etc. But as a brand OnePlus One needed a pretty robust yet minimal ROM and with Oxygen OS they will cater the stock Android fans with no customization and bunch of useless features.
This is good for users as those who like minimal Android can stay with official ROM and others can flash the custom ROM they like. Currently it is under testing and bugs fixing with more details on February 12 and we expect at least a beta version and bunch of screenshots.
