Cyanogen to support OnePlus One in India

By December 5th, 2014 AT 5:23 PM

The launch of OnePlus One in India for Rs 21,999 was welcomed by all. One of the major feature being the CyanogenMod 11S ROM based on Android 4.4 KitKat. However, a couple of days before its launch, reports claimed that CyanogenMod has withdrawn its support for OnePlus One Indian variant.

The drastic move by the CyanogenMod was being seen as an after effect of its partnership with the Micromax. As a result, OnePlus had to come up with a statement that it would release a beta version of its own ROM based on Android 5.0 Lollipop in December with a final version coming in around February 2015. It was going to keep majority of the features of the Cyanogen ROM.

However, Cyanogen kept quiet on this matter and has finally released a statement that it will be providing OTA updates for all the OnePlus devices, including Indian variant. OnePlus sells the global version of the device in India and it would have been a herculean task for Cyanogen to stop the updates for these devices. So, it has now decided to provide updates for the OnePlus One in India as well.

The news is a sigh of relief to the current and prospective customers of the OnePlus One and they can now go ahead and purchase the device without any second thoughts.
