Android 4.4.3-Based OmniROM Unofficial Build for the OnePlus One
Quite often when any new phone is released, we at XDA wonder if and when we’ll be able to install a custom ROM. But with the OnePlus One delivering CyanogenMod 11s out of the box, it was more than likely this device would have custom firmwares available quickly. Today, we are seeing just that. Not long after the first devices hit their buyers’ doorsteps, an early unofficial build of OmniROM was released.
Keen observers will be quick to note that the device shipped with Android 4.4.2. However, this unofficial build includes the Android 4.4.3, which released by Google earlier this week and merged into OmniROM just two days ago.
Like most early builds, not everything works absolutely perfectly just yet. For example, the developer states that the current build has a few issues with the camera and storage. However, we don’t expect it to be too long before both issues are resolved. Also, since the hardware is essentially the same as devices such as the Oppo Find 7a, with the same device tree and source code, we don’t expect it to be too long before we see the OnePlus One receive official OmniROM nightlies.
