    So my OPO has shipped -- to Hop•Shop•Go anyway. Not quite a WOOHOO moment, but I'll give it an "oooooh yeaaah".

    I feel like an idiot, but I didn't realise how bad the Aussie dollar was to the USD -- "$477 to Paypal?" says my wife. "No, should be $377!" says I. :oops:

    Still cheap for the spec but considering I was waiting to get a job offer (got, accepted, start on Tuesday) it was a bit of an oversight on my part.

    Hey all, I've just joined in this slightly odd forum/invite world, before I carry on imposing here I have question.. do I need to join the 'dinky-di...' group to be involved here?
    I ask as that thread/group link seems to be blacked out/'closed'

    Thnks.

    Assuming I am ok to join in here...
    So I'm in Rocky... working in the CSGas out west. I'm English/pomme but have been here for over 2 yrs now.
    I recently got the kitkat update on my S4 and the sd card restrictions have annoyed the .... out of me, so I attempted a 'root' (pause for chuckles). I ended up bricking my phone.. oops. After a sleep and a heap of research I found I had 'soft' bricked and was able to reflash and now the old s4 is up and running again. .
    but now my interest in a new 'root' friendly phone is piqued and I'm over this s4 kitkat restriction..

    So thats my hello to you all.

    Just make sure you have a freight forwarder setup before you purchase the OPO and you shipping address is setup in you OnePlus account and all will be sweet.
    Welcome aboard.

    Hmm, I didn't introduce myself either (how rude):

    I'm a software engineer, been in Sydney for a year and a half. Just about to start a new job, but have been playing with Android for a while and found the OPO after Googling for "best hacker phone" -- and nothing says "hipster hacker poser" like a phone with a big "cyanogenmod" logo!! ;)

    Can NOT freakin' wait to get my hands on the beast.

    EDIT: Added winky emoticon to signal that I'm taking the piss. Can we say "taking the piss" on this forum, or will I get blocked now?

    I can just beat that:
    [​IMG]

    3days 3hrs 32mins 5sec uptime on that period, admittedly I did plug the phone into the PC to transfer a couple of hd movies and by doing that it did take a small charge for the several minutes it was connected. I hadn't use the phone for calls or txt much, as I was customising the phone to my liking widgets/layout/theme/apps that kinda thing. Still it's a great phone.
