    thanks for this. I'll add it in the first post.
    I'll check everything as and when I myself get the phone.

    Rooting is allowed.
    If you brick your device they'll help.
    Dunno about hard brick

    Well Cm has clarified now that they wont give Ota updates to the OnePlus One regional devices sold directly in India.. So this means that those buying from amazon will not get the updates... My only query to you is if I flash Cyanogen 44s update from here https://cyngn.com/products/oneplusone/, ie. download the factory image of the software and flash it on my phone, then will I be getting the updates??? I think its the global version CM11s... Please reply???

    This can't be confirmed because no one knows yet how they'll block the phone from getting updates.
    We have a global model anyway so I don't know.
    And anyway phone comes with latest 44s installed.
    A new update won't be out before Feb.

    Ok and a final query, if we flash any update with TWRP, will it result in any data loss???If no can you tell me how to do that??:)

    Flashing an update won't result in data loss.
    However unlocking bootloader will result in a full format.
    Use google to take a backup prior to this(helium seems to be having issues with the OPO)

    As to how to flash, refer method 2 and the accompanying videos.

    Request you to add clarity on below queries. I am a Banker, not much of a software guy. But a tech enthusiast all the way. I have purchased the India version on Amazon and wish to have clarity on below.

    1 How can I manually update OPO to CM12s (assuming that is name of the new custom build for OPO running 5.0)?
    2 Where can I find the requisite files (source)?
    3 The CM app does not work on phones that are already running CM. What are my options here?
    4 Once I install the new version, will I receive OTA updates for future versions/bug fixes released by CM (I am aware CM is very proactive in releasing fixes)? Or would this have to be done manually too? If manual, where will I find the updates and how will I know when one is out?

    Well my device is rooted so no worrying of unlocking bootloader...Its great if flashing does not wipe data... And ya I am using Titanium Backup Pro so no worrying of backing up data too....

    I'm sure you can flash the 11s version as well if you can download it.
    This method applies to all cm versions
