We’ve talked about the Oppo Find 7a quite a bit here on the XDA Portal ever since its unveiling, back in March of this year. In the time since, the Find 7a has received official TWRP support, a feature-packed official OTA, and even CyanogenMod 11S from the OnePlus One. During this time, we’ve also stripped the device down to its hardware innards and given it a quick review.
Now, we’re about to enter the next phase in Find 7a development, thanks to the first source-built custom ROM for the device. This comes in the form of official OmniROM alpha builds, which will eventually transition into nightlies once the device is ready. These builds come from none other than XDA Senior Recog. . .

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.

The Oppo Find 7a is the successor to Find 5, and the younger brother to the Find 7. The Find 5 was an amazing device with a 5” 1080P display, and the Find 7a is even bigger at 5.5”. The Find 7a was released to international markets in April 2014, and you can only buy the device from Oppo at this point. The Find 7 with the higher specs will be released in June this year. The internal hardware of the Find 7a US is based on the Snapdragon 801 SoC (MSM8974AB) at 2.3 GHZ, whereas the Find 7 model features the MSM8974AC version of the Snapdragon 801 SoC at 2.5 GHZ. Aside from different screen resolution, RAM amount, and bump in CPU speed, the Find 7a is a powerhouse that can compete with any flagship out there today. . . . READ ON »

XDA Developer TV Producer AdamOutler is known for his famous XDA Unboxings. In an unboxing the XDA way, Adam tears apart an innocent device all the way to its bare components. He then points out some of the components and what they do. Today, he has set his sights on the Oppo Find 7a. He’s done this to other Oppo devices as well: the Oppo Find 5 and the Oppo Find Mirror aka the R819.
In this episode, AdamOutler shows off the Oppo Find 7a and unboxes it. But of course, he doesn’t stop at opening the box. Rather, he strips it down to its bare bones.

Oppo shocked the world a little over a year ago with the release of the flagship-level and highly regarded Find 5. Although Oppo is quite well known in the mid-high end Bluray player market, the Chinese OEM was then unheard of in the Android smartphone world. Not too long after, they followed up with the similarly great Oppo N1. And then in the middle of last month, they launched their current flagship, the Oppo Find 7 in two flavors: the high end Find 7a and extremely high end Find 7.
Since the Find 7a’s launch, we’ve seen a decent amount of development activity including an official TWRP release. But sometimes, the best news comes not from aftermarket development, but rather from official . . . READ ON »

There are more than a few excellent options in the custom recovery world nowadays. Although the most common aftermarket solution is still ClockworkMod Recovery and its ports after all these years, many are growing increasingly partial to TWRP’s blend of innovative features, fantastic UI, and overall user friendliness. Thus, it’s naturally quite a big deal when an official TWRP port hits a device.
You may recall that a few weeks ago, we added forums for the Oppo Find 7. Now, XDA Senior Recognized Developer Dees_Troy has gone ahead and given it some official TWRP love. But before you go ahead and install it on your device, there’s one small caveat. Currently, TWRP for the Find 7 only . . . READ ON »

Just yesterday, Chinese electronics manufacturer Oppo unveiled the Oppo Find 7. The device is essentially a tour de force of high end and class-leading specifications. Available in two configurations, the high end model features a 5.5-inch Quad HD screen, a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 AC processor, and 3 GB of RAM. The “lower end” variant packs a plebian 1080p screen, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 AB processor, and 2 GB of RAM. Both variants pack a rather hefty 3000 mAh battery, and feature a 13 MP camera that can assemble 50 MP images thanks to a neat little software trick. And with how developer friendly the Find 5 proved to be, it will be of little surprise to see quite a bit of aftermarket development appear . . . READ ON »
