    Dang....asking about it when it hasn't even been released yet. And addressing the most annoying misconception EVER known in the Android community.

    YOU DON'T NEED ROOT to FLASH ROMS

    You just need an unlocked boot loader and a custom recovery.... both very easy to do:
    https://forums.oneplus.net/threads/...oader-install-custom-recovery-and-root.64487/

    So what you do is, you unlock your boot loader, flash a custom recovery, get a backup of your CM11S/CM12S image, store it on a computer, flash the Oxygen OS rom (if it's like that at all) and if you don't like it, just boot up on your custom recovery and restore the backup CM11S/CM12S

    Root is just optional stuff that grants you SU access to accomplish more modding (XPOSE, clocking, kernel)

    You have a pertinant question. A lot around the world with an OPO are asking (quietly in their mind) the same question.

    What about...

    Wait 2 days, and OnePlus will release all details; I'm sure. They are really helpful and especially when it comes to installing stuff, they'll definitely help you mate.

    And you never know man...OP wants everyone to get on board with this ROM. If this was very "technical" it would root (pun intended) out a majority of the buyers of the phone. OnePlus wants as many adopters as they can get and so, would try to make the process as easy as possible (best case scenario). AN installer may be possible, or some sort of OTA type (stretch) automatic installation could be possible as well.

    In the end, you'll find out sooner or later

    Ha!,

    I'm from India man, and I can tell you...those "service" centers just rip you off. My not so techie friend was Charged 150 Rupees for Rooting his Nexus 7. Don't get to conclusions before Oxygen or CM have even been released...And who knows what those "highly professional" service center idiots would do with your phone

    Not 100 % true, while the target date for Oxygen is Friday....OnePlus gives that as a tentative goal date
