The year 2015 has started from today, and OnePlus has started its year with a great surprise for its One smartphone owners. The Android Lollipop Alpha ROM version is now officially available for the OnePlus One users. This is the ROM developed by OnePlus itself, and is said to replace the CyanogenMod OS which was previously used in the OnePlus One devices.
Though the release of the ROM by OnePlus which is based on Android 5.0 Lollipop may not be much exciting news for much of the OnePlus One users, it is indeed a good news for the customers based in India, where the device was doomed to not get any updates and future support by Cyanogen, since the exclusive deal between Cyanogen Inc. and Micromax Ltd. prevented that.
The OnePlus employees have been working for quite a time now for the development of Android 5.0 Lollipop ROM, and the time favored them, to release the Alpha version just in the exact date of January 1st. The ROM is now available and ready to download and flash in the OnePlus One. The OnePlus ROM is pretty similar to the stock Android experience, but there are some minor changes such as the ability to have either onscreen or physical navigation buttons.
Here is a quick guide on how to install the Android Lollipop Alpha ROM in the OnePlus One:
Since this is the Alpha version, there are definitely some bugs, some of which are already known and are listed as below:
Well, if you were worried about not getting any updates due to the ban in support from Cyanogen (if you are from India), your problem is officially solved now. You can download and flash the file, and get the experience of Android 5.0 Lollipop in your OnePlus One. For the users outside India, though you will be getting the frequent updates and support from Cyanogen, you can still install this Android Lollipop Alpha ROM in your device, if you want a little change! Enjoy! Leave your comments below, if you find more of bugs in the ROM, or are still not getting any clue on how to install it, or whatever your opinion is.
