OnePlus releases the kernel source code of the OnePlus 2

OnePlus keep it real and go open source by releasing the source code of the OnePlus 2 after only a few weeks after launching the device.

Chances are that unless you bought your OnePlus 2 from via a Chinese reseller, you are still waiting for an invite to buy the OnePlus 2 through official channels. This is true for a lot of OnePlus fans, but they can console themselves with the knowledge that custom roms might be available for the Ā 2016 flagship killer by the time they receive it.

Keeping to the terms of using Android, OnePlus have already released the source code for the OnePlus 2. What this means is that developers can now get to the guts of the OP2 kernel and build their own custom roms. The code is available to download fromĀ from Github.

Gizchina News of the week



ThisĀ year OnePlus and CyanogenOS official stopped their cooperation meaning that an official CM build won’t come to the OnePlus 2, however with source code third party developers can now work on bringing the popular system to the OP2. Other possibilities could be MIUI or even Flyme.

    first smart thing I’ve seen from these people.

    unfortunately the lack of CM if only one of the reasons why they can’t get the same demand of the previous model.

    the main reason is SD810 which has been affected any brand, Chinese and non.
    i don’t understand why they couldn’t wait few more months and get a decent SoC.

    the last version of SD810 might even be good but it has no market anymore. it’s like convincing parents of young children to go for a famous rapist who has been on rehab and now he’s available for baby sitting.

    Good job at making the title image 950kb. (Referring to the photo of two One Plus Two phones together)

    You guys *really* need to work on your image optimization. It’s not as hard as you think!

    EDIT: ok the designer in me is screaming now; can you honestly believe this news story, text, images, advertisements and all is a whooping 10MB!? Un-freaking-believable. Absolutely freaking ridiculous. I hope you guys aren’t paying for web traffic. Crazy to think every 100 page loads could be 1GB of traffic.

    Kernel sources without drivers for most important parts like camera, fingerprint sensor, … Useless
