OnePlus One ROM (CyanogenMod 11S) on the Oppo Find 7a

We first heard about OnePlus back in January of this year when the “new” company comprised of ex-Oppo employees became the first OEM to partner with Cyanogen Inc and deliver a custom tailored version of CyanogenMod on a production device. Then when the OnePlus One was unveiled late last month, it became readily apparent that this One had quite a bit in common with the Oppo Find 7. Now, we have even more reason to believe that these two devices are very closely related, as CyanogenMod 11S from the OnePlus One can run on the 1080p version of the Find 7 (Find 7a) with only incredibly minor modifications.

This all started yesterday afternoon, when XDA Forum Moderator graffixnyc shared the OnePlus One’s CM11S update.zip, as well as its boot, system, and recovery partitions. With this in hand, Senior Member rayfin then tried to get the OnePlus firmware working on his Find 7a. And with a bit of help from graffixnyc, rayfin was able to remove the device asserts from graffixnyc’s update.zip so that the OnePlus One ROM could be flashed on an unmodified Find 7a. Rayfin was then kind enough to also supply modified versions of the two OnePlus One OTAs (second OTA comes courtesy of ayysir) in order to update the ROM to the latest version. But according to Senior Member m3dd0g, flashing these modified updates isn’t even necessary. Simply flash the OnePlus One recovery and the modified Find 7a will accept subsequent OnePlus One ROM updates.

While the unmodified OnePlus One ROM runs very well on the Find 7a, all is not perfect. As noted by rayfin, the front camera, microphone, WiFi, mobile data, Bluetooth, sound, GPS, and telephony work. Unfortunately, voice wake functionality and NFC currently don’t work. What’s more, the rear camera is a bit wonky (image is upside down) and the device only reports 3 GB of storage. That said, it’s remarkable for these two “different” devices to be so closely related that they can share update packages. But I suppose we shouldn’t be too surprised. After all, the hardware similarities between the two devices are enough to make Senior Recognized Developer Entropy512 jokingly call the OnePlus One the Find 7 OnePlus edition.

If you’ve got a Find 7a and want some OnePlus One CM11s action, head over to rayfin’s ROM thread to get started. And if you want to get the raw files from the OnePlus One itself, head over to graffixnyc’s  update.zip and system dump threads.

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
