Lollipop based Cyanogen 12 now rolling out to OnePlus One users

Right on the heels of the release of OnePlus' homegrown OxygenOS, Cyanogen announced today that it has started pushing out Cyanogen 12 to all OnePlus One users. In its release, Cyanogen underlined the word "all" to indicate that even those in India will be receiving the new ROM, which is based on Android 5.0.

Cyanogen's exclusive deal in India with Micromax had originally forced OnePlus to speed up development of what would eventually be named OxygenOS. That is because a court in New Delhi had originally banned the OnePlus One from competing in the country against the Cyanogen powered Yu handsets. The court eventually reversed its decision after realizing that the entry-level Yu phones and the flagship spec'd OnePlus One do not play in the same sandbox, so to speak.

Cyanogen 12 includes new features such as an App Themer that allows you to theme individual apps. OnePlus One users will also be able to choose from a wide selection of free and paid themes. As Cyanogen put in on its blog, "We’ve now made it even easier for you to turn your operating system into your own personal canvas."

The Boxer powered new email feature offered in the latest Cyanogen ROM includes "sweet benefits" missing from previous versions of Cyanogen. New features include the ability to integrate multiple accounts, support for Exchange and pre-written replies for faster responses.

If you own the OnePlus One, be on the look out for the notification that tells you when Cyanogen 12 is ready to be downloaded and installed on your handset.

I still dont get the hate for OnePlus They're a small startup Those issues with supply, quality control and RMAs, should have been expected E.g. OEMs like LG and ASUS have all had supply issues with the low priced Nexuses (even with the low priced Nexuses from Moto and HTC) And all OEMs have had some issues with quality control and RMAs, even the big two, Apple and Samsung
