Cyanogen 12 update for OnePlus One stopped to add one feature
The Cyanogen 12 update for the OnePlus One has been temporarily halted. But this was not done for a negative reason. Phones weren't getting bricked and there were no issues with the update that would cause OnePlus to take this action. Instead, the manufacturer wanted to freeze the OTA dissemination of the update in order to include a new feature for OnePlus One users. This was announced by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei in a tweet he sent out this morning.

The feature that Pei is alluding to is the one that allows users to say the phrase "O.K. OnePlus" to activate certain capabilities of the OnePlus One. It is similar to the feature that allows Android users to activate a Google Search by saying "O.K. Google."

According to Pei, the Cyanogen 12 update will resume in the middle of this week. The latest version of Cyanogen is based on Android 5.0 and includes the ROM provider's email client Boxer.

waiting game for this company is a thing now. Don't even think about the consumer perspective only company thinking for themselves. The reason is lame. Why do that now instead before hand? i just don't think its fair. Again just my thought coming from who bought the hype and was fooled like an normal person.

Because it's a fake reason. I'm sure there is some other reason to halt the update but they're pretending that it's a feature add... Who halts an OTA to add an additional feature? I'm sure there was some Cyanogenmod bug like always.

No different than other droid roms. Let me know when the latest G3 update fixes the broken mess that has left sms unusable by a lot of people on TMO, or apps no longer working on S6 etc after switching or using smart switch from a previous 4.x droid. Blah blah blah

This vulnerability has been around for 18 years and it affect every Windows system including the upcoming Windows 10. Since you like to finger point I will do it in your honour and also provide the source link unlike yours truly always speculate. No wonder you like Microsoft so much, both have ZERO integrity.

I have lollipop installed from the zip file on my oneplus. It works fine, but there are few problems which i am facing. Music player sometime starts up by itself. There are few touch screen issues and the most annoying is videos on facebook stops playing after few seconds displaying message that video can't be played this time try after sometime. But there is no problem on my old htc one m7 when playing same video.

I too installed the Lollipop zip via TWRP, over my 11S configuration, and all my settings/customizations/Root transferred without a hitch. No problem with neither the Google Play music nor Facebook app here, but I was having some problems with XPosed framework; the one I had installed wasn't compatible with Android Lollipop. Thankfully, that had long been fixed (bit. ly/1aMh7OX) before Android Lollipop was officially available for the OPO...patience sure was a virtue :) Presuming you mean the Music app starts playing music out of nowhere by itself, to fix that, I would suggest you go into Settings > Gestures and disable the "Music" option...see if it does that again. For the facebook app, all I can suggest is go into Settings > Apps > Facebook and clear both the data and cache. Reopen the Facebook app, relogin, and see if the problem persists. Hope that helps :)
