OnePlus announced its new team of OxygenOS developers earlier today, which mostly included people from the Paranoid Android development community. Shortly after the announcement, the team held an Ask Us Almost Anything or AUAA session on Reddit where more information on the ROM was shared.
First and foremost, the ROM will be available to download starting next month and will be an exclusive to OnePlus One customers. There was no specific date provided, but we expect more clarification on that soon. The disappointing news however is that the ROM will not be available in the form of an OTA update for existing users.
Instead, customers will have to download and flash the ROM manually. We’re sure OnePlus will have complete installation instructions put up when the time arrives. This was always a concern among users as OxygenOS will have to completely replace the already existing Cyanogen OS that’s currently running on the device.
Of course, this is an opt-in feature and users will not necessarily have to flash the ROM if they’re not comfortable with the process. Customers in India might have to force themselves into flashing the ROM though, as there will be no CyanogenMod updates in the region following a legal issue.
