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...

[OTA Captured] Oppo Find 7a x9006 Now Receiving Feature-Packed OTA to Build 140419

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...

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...
