Official CyanogenMod Now Available for the Oppo N1 Standard Edition
Just two days ago, we talked about the release of the Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition, as well as its factory images and source code. While the device’s large dimensions make it somewhat of a niche device, the N1 is a device aimed to please those looking for a very large phone. The N1 is also great for those who value support from an OEM that actively caters to the development and enthusiast communities.
Alongside the release of the N1 CM Edition, Oppo stated that an official CM build for the standard edition device would be released shortly. Now two days later, they have made good on their promise, thanks to a complete update that removes the default ColorOS in favor of the AOSP-derived CyanogenMod 10.2.
It is important to note that to install the official CM build, you should be on stock software and with stock recovery. If you need to revert to stock recovery after having flashed an aftermarket recovery such as TWRP, head over to XDA Recognized Contributor Harfainx‘s stock recovery thread to revert back to stock. Once you have the stock recovery installed, download the CM package from the source link and perform a local update from the System Update utility.
If you’re a standard edition Oppo N1 owner lusting after the CM Edition, today’s your lucky day. Leave us your thoughts in the comments below, and don’t forget to head over to the Oppo N1 forums to get in on the discussion!
