OnePlus release their own OxygenOS

OnePlus has released their own OxygenOS ROM. Based on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, OxygenOS is said to be “light and essential” with all the customization, and useful features OnePlus owners have enjoyed with their devices. Gestures are baked in, and quick settings have some nice appointments. The File Manager is of course a welcome touch.

Regarding the OxygenOS, Carl Pei, Director, OnePlus Global on the official blog, said:

Developing OxygenOS has been an incredibly fun and challenging experience for all of us. In this environment where everyone is fighting to standout with custom ROMs, we think it’s important to go back to basics. We place things like performance and battery life over gimmicks and bloated features.

We want to be careful that we aren’t adding features simply for the sake of differentiation. We’ve implemented some important features thus far, but they are subtle and meaningful. That’s our philosophy behind OxygenOS: keep it light and essential.

As you can see from the feature video above, OxygenOS is really a feature augmentation to Lollipop, as the experience looks almost completely stock. That no doubt lends to what looks like smooth and fast performance on the hardware.

OxygenOS is not a required download, users can obviously still opt to keep using Cyanogen ROMs. OnePlus is committed to be prompt with updates, and encourages users to download the company’s feedback app to submit comments about the experience.

You can download OxygenOS ROM from the OnePlus website and manually flash it on your OnePlus One smartphone. You can find the instruction to install it on the OnePlus One from the official OnePlus forum. There are some issues since this is the first version, which will be improved eventually.
