OxygenOS finally released and available to install


oxygen os downlaod

If you are enjoying a long weekend for the easter and you have a OnePlus One then why not spend a few moments installing the much anticipated OxygenOS ROM?

With the OnePlus and CyanogenMod relationship on a seemingly rocky road, it meant that smartphone maker was in dire need for its own Android ROM to run on the flagship killer and up coming Android devices.

The result is OxygenOS, a ROM designed and developed from the OnePlus Team (after hiring key Paranoid Android members) for use specifically on the OnePlus One. OxygenOs features a whole new UI experience and comes with many of the features we are used to using on other phones (gestures, customizations, etc). More features of OxygenOS can be seen in the video below:

So if you have a OnePlus One and want to test the new system then head over to the ColorOS pages here download it and follow the installation guide. Let us know if you intend to install it and let us know your feedback.

      this is how it’s done, vanilla Android skins for the win ! many people appreciate stock look and feel. don’t need 300 extra gimick featuresnthat I’ll never use.

        So why do you buy smartphone ? I buy it for features.

        • seven7dust
          April 4, 2015

          yes hardware features , not some gimmicky gallery apps ,launchers and dialers , you have thousands of them on the play store.

          they’ll obviously add slight tweaks from paranoid android like themes, halo, notifications etc. but it’ll be like stock look and feel, which is good thing.

          color O.S , Gionee amigo UI , emotion UI do we rally need all that laggy/ gimmicky stuff made by chinese interns at night. I’m sorry but these companies aren’t software developers , they are hardware companies. let google do the software, they are better at that than. they have a multi-million dollar software team.

            Google uses Java to develop OS, and that says it all.

            It is a miracle that Android became so popular, probably there was no other OS to compete with(apart iOS).

              There was Windows CE and Symbian before Android, what are you talking about?
              Android is an example of success of the open source project using Linux kernel.
              Even Microsoft can’t compete with them.
              At this point, for the features all the OS can offer, nobody can’t compete with Android, not even iOS.

              well yes , if only Apple licensed iO.S to everyone , it would have become like Windows for phones, but they didn’t , So google beat microsoft and became king of mobile along with Apple , cause as much as google software is not as good as Apple rants , Microsft is even worse yet dominates the desktop market , Apple and it’s closed eco-system will never dominate, but kudos to Apple for being on top for so many years. I’m a fan of steve jobs too.

              Microsoft is losing ground every day in the desktop market to 4 things: Android/iOS (tablets), OSX and Chrome OS. The days of M$oft having full and total control over the PC landscape is vastly disappearing. Apple will always have their loyal following, they don’t need to dominate to be successful they are a closed system designed specifically for Apple users and fans. They make billions they are not worried about dominating.

              In addition, ms making more money than ever from patents because of competition, no need to fight for / regain control.

              April 6, 2015

              MS has been losing more money than ever recently. The Surface was one of the biggest disasters the company has ever had, over a $2 Billion loss. Nokia and Xbox One also significant losses for M$oft last year.

            • April 6, 2015

              Like I said, their patents is their main source of income

              Google uses a mixture of C and C++ . That’s why there’s a need of the likes of Dalvik machine to interpret the Java bytecode of the *apps*.

              Apps use Java, not android , get your facts straight…

            • April 5, 2015

              android was never a competitor to ios. Only symbian, windows mobile & feature phones – not even bb

            Actually, multi-billion

          a smartphone is not for features, a dumb phone is – that’s why they call it feature phone. Lol

    isnt that a breath of fresh air , oxygen literally ,vanilla android slighly tweaked but mostly left alone ,this is the way to go.
    congratulations to one plus for doing what every OEM needs to do {looks at oppo/gionee etc.} they are going places this year. I’m pchyced for oneplus two now ,I was scared about oxygen O.S but boy was I wrong,

    the problem with most OEMs is that they think they are software developerswhen they clearly aren’t. all oems should leave android alone then they’ll win more customers, I don’t need a special gallery app or special browser , just give me stock , if I need better I’ll download it from the play store.

    • Andrew P
      April 4, 2015

      You clearly don’t understand what OEM role is. Not every phone user is geek who understands that he can tweek his messenger, calling apps and so on. And here comes OEM role – special features out of box. As Steve Jobs said once – “People don’t know what they wan’t until you show them”.

      • seven7dust
        April 4, 2015

        yes and no, I ahve nothing agaisnt MIUI , Flyme and other quality software teams , infact I use Meizu and I love it.

        but not GIonee’s Amigo b.s or oppo’s color O.S, so it’s a choice. I’d rather have one company giving quality Stock skin rather than half-ased Chinese skins. for every good skin they are 10 bad ones that slow down the phone more than help.so you should be wishing for mre stock skins that are fast and fluid.

        we can always download better messaging apps from the play store. if other users are ignorannt educate them, it’s your duty as a enthusiast.

        stock also means means updates will be easier for oneplus to create in the future as well.

          April 4, 2015

          I think OEM’s should give a choice or an easy way to revert to stock android if you don’t like their UI. But the sad fact is that won’t ever happen because for almost all of them they make money off their UI between their own app stores and the apps other companies pay to ship with the product (bloatware).

          I wish a lot of these smaller companies would just use some of the great existing ROM’s either ones developed by other OEM’s (MIUI) or community driven ones like SlimKat.

      “snt that a breath of fresh air , oxygen literally” Technically air is mostly nitrogen with a small amount of Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide and various other gasses.

      I wouldn’t say all OEM’s need to abandon software development. Some do a very good job. MIUI and Flyme are both excellent alternatives to stock Android. You do realize not everyone wants stock android right?

      • seven7dust
        April 4, 2015

        If you read my other comments you know I praise Flyme and Miui. Its just that they are too many below average skins out there do we need another from one plus. I’m just not a fan of oppo s color o.s , Vivo fun touch lenovo vibe ui and billion other no name skins , with weird colors

        Well oxygen is the 14% of air our body loves , so I’d say my comment has significance with so few OEMS giving us stock Android look and feel, its actually like oxygen. Haha its a stretch but hope it makes sense , -:)

        • balcobomber25
          April 4, 2015

          Color OS is horrible as is Amigo, Emotion and dozens of others. But I hate stock Android just as much as I hate some of those. I would take MIUI over just about any other UI out there.

          • Stef
            April 4, 2015

            You do realize that you can change the looks of stock (if you root) all the while you’re stuck with others’ look. So even if you don’t like stock look it’s still preferable, in all the others you’re forced to change the whole OS if you wish to change looks. Also stock is much leaner than most/any skin/OEM version out there…

            • balcobomber25
              April 5, 2015

              I love the look of MIUI though, why go through the trouble if having to download Nova Launcher, install the MIUI skin, change all the colors/fonts, etc when I can just have it ship ready
              on my Mi4?

            • Stef
              April 5, 2015

              Well if MiUI is the only skin you like and the only one that you’d ever like then indeed going to a Xiaomi phone or Miui rom is the only choice for you. But if you -by chance- ever get bored you’re stuck to it. In Stock you can always flash the next skin and have the “next phone” w/t ever changing roms, much less devices…

            • balcobomber25
              April 6, 2015

              You can flash every ROM you want but there is no guarantee they will all work flawlessly with your device. I have no concerns about MIUI, it works out of the box and I like it. If I ever get bored with it, highly unlikely, I would switch to Meizu and Flyme which I also like.

            • Stef
              April 6, 2015

              Yeah but that was my point. AOSP let’s you avoid flashing. If a rom is good I would *never* go to the next one, if I don’t like the looks I simply download xthemer (or sth similar) to do the skinning for me (there are ready made skins representing all brands). The alternative seems cumbersome but most of all bad given that it would lead me away from a good rom into one that may well have bugs.

              I think you made my point for me. AOSP is all roms in one, everything else isn’t and that’s enough argument for me to not have to try others…
