This week was quite the rollercoaster ride. Everything was going as planned, April Fool’s and all, right up until we received some very big news today…

Let’s start with the reason why you’re all here: OxygenOS is here.

The delay was due to certification taking longer than anticipated (see Helen’s thread on the forums), but now we are very excited to share our new ROM with you. Everything you need to know about OxygenOS can be found in this blog post, and don’t forget to visit Oxygen’s stunning new home. A short video showing some of its main features can be found here:

 

Last month we dropped several hints about a game-changing new product coming to OnePlus. On Wednesday, we unveiled the OnePlus drone to the world. If you love April Fool’s pranks, check out the DR-1’s full site.

 

One aspect of the company we hear a lot of feedback about is our customer support, and we’ve been working to improve things for all of you. Across our social media channels the last couple weeks, we’ve posted some infographics that show how far we’ve come since we launched just over a year ago. We published a post earlier this week that goes over these changes in detail. Please let us know any of your comments or suggestions for our customer support – it is a work in progress but we are moving in the right direction with your help.

Some OnePlus things you may have missed: the latest Abstract, our weekly roundup of the best news in tech, went up on the blog. And in case you still haven’t heard, the OnePlus One is available to buy without an invite every Tuesday!

And finally, we have one more award to add to our list. On Tuesday we heard that the OnePlus won the Engadget Award for Best Smartphone! A big thank you to everyone who voted!

That’s it for this week. Make sure to let us know what you think about OxygenOS!

 

  • Luca Duci

    Great work on OxygenOS here!

  • Jeff Tomblin

    Congrats on the release! Any information on where CM is in the process for OTA?

  • CM12S? Because O2OS is a big fail and most of us is waiting for a real update.

    • Moch7

      I would also like cm12s but I hardly think OxygenOS is a failure. Sure it’s close to stock android but does that mean the nexus devices are failures?

      • Vanja

        Unfair to compare this to the nexus devices. The big difference is the release time here. Nexus devices received 5.0.2 update a very long time ago. In fact, they are receiving 5.1 update already.
        There has been so many delays and promises only for users to see a vanilla Android with few tweaks. Over promising and late under delivering. That is what makes OxygenOS a failure.

  • Olivier Houde

    I’d love to install the new OS. On my OPO. IF I had one… *Sincerly, a canadian friend*

    • I have an invite I could send you. I received it a couple of days ago. Send me your email address! I’m on Google Plus.

      • Olivier Houde

        I would love to, but they stopped shipping to Canada. Logistics problems… I just hope they will resume shipping soon

        • Sorry to hear that! I wish there was a way to get it and ship it to you! But hope they solve the logistics problems soon!

          • Andy Trujillo

            Can i get an invite? pls
            lol

          • Steven Hotilal

            yes I have a couple to give away email me [email protected]

    • L-d Fortin

      J’en ai un man XD le fait d’être au Canada n’est pas un problème 🙂

      • Olivier Houde

        Je sais, ils shippaient au Canada mais pour l’instant c’est suspendu… question de logistique. Ça fait depuis le début du mois de février qu’on peut plus le faire livrer au canada!

  • Dean Williams

    So OxygenOS is just AOSP? Installed it this morning and immediately went back to SlimSaber… After the hype and the delays, sorry guys, but this is very disappointing. Hopefully OxygenOS will have some rapid feature development and soon…

  • UNA! What happened to her paw? :'(

    • Arz Bhatia

      Just a tiny cut or something, she’s fine now! 🙂

  • Torquay David

    I am such an ungeek, I think the dog would have more success installing it! 😉

  • Dean Murray

    Never had a PC/laptop, that was the main reason for buying a smartphone all those years ago

  • Chuck Jones

    Why isn’t there a link for Week 68 in the forum?

  • José Antonio García

    CM 12 S where?Kondik says thursday this week as later…

  • Swati Sharma

    When can we expect the Oxygen OS to launch in India?

    • anurag prasad

      unlock your phone’s bootloader and flash it

  • Bryan Gibson

    Did everyone forget that OxygenOS was a slimmed down version of L? Of course you’re going to be disappointed if you went from a full-featured ROM to O…it’s not for you. Hello, McFly?!

  • RonaldM

    OxygenOS: “keep it light and essential”, and it is. Installing was a real hassle for me, but with the right YouTube tutorial all went fine and it works like a charm…

  • keithnyc

    Awwww…. cute pic of the Unaster! Glad she’s fine. Thanks for the update

  • Artem Medvedev

    Wut. We want CM! And UNA!

  • Erik Verschooren
  • Manuel Póvoa

    clock and alarm crashes, all the time. No LED colour choice, sound in SWIFTKEY is doubled when we press the keys, we need more wallpapers sincerely…No option to have a row for 5 or 6 folders, and Home is allways on the left… Come on guys… 8(
