OnePlus is making a custom ROM called OxygenOS


OnePlus is making its own custom ROM that now has a name: OxygenOS. OxygenOS will be a customized version of Android that OnePlus says will be “open, customizable, and free of bloat and unnecessary features.” While the OnePlus One has been using CyanogenMod, it seems that OnePlus wants to break away from that and use its own ROM that’s based off of Android. It’s not terribly surprising considering some of the bugs and update issues that the OnePlus One has faced while using CyanogenMod.

OnePlus is still working hard to support the current One, and it’s hard to say when a successor will arrive. Before a new device from OnePlus, it seems likely that we’ll see the OnePlus One updated to run OxygenOS rather than CyanogenMod. While there aren’t any details at the moment, OnePlus says that it will release more information regarding OxygenOS on February 12. We’ll be here to cover all the news, so stay tuned for more!

    I don’t like this, first they say Google is bloating Android with forced Google Apps and now this. Don’t try to divide things people, Android is Google, Google is Android, having Google Apps on stock system makes it stock for me, things are good as they are.

      Android is necessarily open source with google monopolizing it..

    a rom which comes with a phone out of the box or should that not be clear enough, a rom made and/or implemented by an OEM to devices he sells with that rom is NOT a custom rom. this is
    not a big issue of course but still not that good if coming from publishers on a tech platform.
