CyanogenMod 14.1 Joins OnePlus 3T’s ROM Roster as Development Picks Up
The development scene on the OnePlus 3T is picking up, even for a device that has its predecessor as a partial competition in past sales. Due to the very nature of open source that promotes collaboration, and OnePlus’s decision to release the kernel sources and the device tree of the OnePlus 3T, the device is on track to compete with its predecessor in the third party scene as well. The most surprising aspect is that all of these works have popped up in a matter of few days!
In addition to our previous story of the OnePlus 3T getting Sultanxda’s custom CyanogenMod 13 builds, the device is seeing substantial developer interest for a phone that is barely a month old and just about getting into the hands of the consumers. Just a few hours ago, the device reached another community development milestone when it received its first public release of (unofficial) CyanogenMod 14.1 based on Android 7.1.1, courtesy of XDA Senior Member PeterCxy. For a first build, the ROM is pretty impressive as it shares several resources from OnePlus 3’s CyanogenMod 14.1 builds, thereby having identical bugs (read: nothing major as the ROM works well, just some stability issues with the new OS).
But that is not all. In addition to the ROMs, custom kernel releases are also making their way to the device. XDA Recognized Developer franciscofranco also brought his famous franco.Kernel project to the OnePlus 3T. Franco kernel joins the rank with a few other notable kernels like XDA Recognized Contributor eng.stk‘s Blu Spark kernel and XDA Recognized Developer jcadduono‘s Kali NetHunter kernel.
There’s still more. Here are the rest of the works currently available in our forums:
