OnePlus One to get a stable Android Lollipop / Cyanogen OS 12 update next month
Adventurous OnePlus One owners can already install an alpha version of an Android 5.0 Lollipop ROM, or a CyanogenMod 12 nightly build on their handsets, but what about a final, stable update to Lollipop? Well, this should be available pretty soon, and it’s coming from Cyanogen.

According to Android Central, Cyanogen founder Steve Kondik confirmed that current plans are to offer a final Cyanogen OS 12 build (based on Lollipop) to OnePlus One users next month (February). As previously reported, customers who are buying the OnePlus One from India should not expect to receive updates from Cyanogen. Instead, they'll have to wait for OnePlus to polish its own Android 5.0 ROM.

Meanwhile, after selling about 1 million OnePlus One handsets, OnePlus is busy with the development on the OnePlus Two, which should be introduced in the second, or third quarter of this year. Even more, another, different new smartphone from the company could be released this year - reportedly, this one could cater more to users who “appreciate design over specs.”

Lol we already have daily builds. Just minus things like the theme engine.

That is a win option, another is daily builds to weed out crap faster. Kudos.

Only sort of want. I kinda wanted a vanilla version directly from OnePlus. Cyanogen ROMs always have weird bugs. My OnePlus included.

Honestly, this phone is already yesterday's news. Not to mention the fact that it is hard to get. It's beginning to get boring. Go ahead, try to be exclusive again. I give you 5 years, you'll be gone.
