CyanogenMod 12S for the OnePlus One passes certification, to seed over the ‘next few days’


The OnePlus One has unfortunately been riddled with controversy and delays, and the postponed release of the Lollipop based CyanogenMod 12S is the latest mishap.

However, in what is seen as respite for OnePlus One owners, company co-founder Carl Pei tweeted that the CyanogenMod 12S update had received certification and that it would seed to OnePlus One devices over the next few days.

The device was launched a year back with the CyanogenMod 11S OS based on Android KitKat, and has since been awaiting a Lollipop release. After facing troubles with CyanogenMod Inc., OnePlus also announced its own forked version of Android, i.e., OxygenOS.

Owners of the ‘flagship killer’ have taken to social media and fora to vent their frustration, and an OTA soon will do good not only to owners of the phone, but also the company which has built itself a reputation for missing deadlines.

      CM 12 and Oxygen OS both are Lollipop. I read somewhere with Oxygen OS the Antutu score was 50K!

    Next few days? What does that mean?

    The company needs precise dates AND to NEVER MISS A DATE. So far they’ve missed EVERY date.

    To make things worse, they posted an offer to give away 5 phones if they missed their Oxygen OS release. Of course they did, but it doesn’t sit well with me (and presumably other OnePlus owner waiting for the update) that they turned their engineering incompetence into a marketing stunt. They should have given every existing phone owner that was kept waiting a $25 coupon against future purchases, instead they did NOTHING for the actual injured parties, and gave away prizes to new users that hadn’t been waiting at all for their promised software upgrades.

    Exceedingly poor judgment shown by OnePlus. It leads me to wonder how much post sales support we’ll get at all after the OnePlus Two comes out.

      CM12 has nothing to do with OnePlus. You should be annoyed at Cyanogen Inc.
