CyanogenMod 12S for the OnePlus One finally OTA-ing


After missing the promised deadline from late March by over two weeks, the Lollipop-based CyanogenMod 12S ROM for the OnePlus One is finally seeding.

The update was initially promised within 90 days of full release from Google, but as it turns out, OnePlus took their time in putting the Lollipop based ROM together.

Also, the update is being seeded to OnePlus One users across the globe in batches so as to avoid server overload. Which is why, you shouldn’t panic in case there isn’t an OTA notification on your phone already. CyanogenMod 11S that the OnePlus One shipped with came with an all-new theme engine, which gets a revamp via the 12S update. The latter now comes with an ‘App Themer’ engine which allows you to specify appearance to be app-specific (somewhat Paranoid Android style).

In related news, Yu’s OnePlus One competitor, the Yureka, has been promised a CyanogenMod 12 update (Lollipop) later this month.

      Aaaand, we always can set an “upgrades” shortcut in the homescreen (just to kill some time).

    I would say it was worth the wait but maybe it wasn’t… It’s a stable Lollipop with some extra bells and whistles!

    I guess that’s better than nothing in the respect of other manufacturers not carrying on support at all… (Like Zopo) 🙂

    Happy days!

    Is it CM12S or Cyanogen OS 12 coming from Cyanogen Inc.? BTW, what’s the difference between the two ROMs?
