OnePlus releases its Lollipop-based Oxygen OS

OnePlus has been teasing its very own custom ROM since a few days now and after a little delay, the Oxygen OS ROM has arrived today for the OnePlus owners.


The Oxygen OS ROM is based on Android 5.0 Lollipop and from the looks of it, it looks mostly stock, which is a good thing. Along with the brand new features of Android 5.0 Lollipop, OnePlus has added some of its very own features.

There’s off-screen gestures, which lets you make gestures when the screen is locked to open a certain app. OnePlus has also added its very own File Manager, which lets you handle your files as we’ve come to expect. Oxygen OS also includes various customisation features. Check out the official video from OnePlus below:

Sadly, the Oxygen OS ROM isn’t available as an OTA update for OnePlus One owners. Instead, users interested can go ahead and manually flash the ROM on their devices. You can head to the OnePlus One official forum for instructions on flashing the ROM.

The company has also listed some of the issues on the forum, which you should definitely check out before you flash.
