    Hello,

    Just yesterday I received my OTA update for the 30O but I wasn't able to update it via OTA don't know why was getting some apply_patch error. And this is common to most people owning Official 64gb International variant. Every 8/10 people facing this issue. So, I choose the manual path to update my phone. So, by multiple tries I managed to update my OPO successfully.

    Note : People who are facing issue with the file on AndroidPolice. Kindly download the modded file from XDA Link

    Well Seriously if you ask me. I haven't found any positive sign or performance till now. All I found is modified overall theme/interface experience. Sorry to say @cyanogen but I haven't find yet any pro's but have found con's and that too alot that is irritating me.

    One and the only pro with the CM 11s 30O update is :
    1. Clear Image Mode.
    2. Sliding left to right on the home screen brings the Google search which is good.
    Yes Clear Image mode seriously do magic and its name suggest. I will update this thread with a images taken in HDR mode, Beauty Mode, Auto Mode and Clear Image Mode

    Update 17th August, 2014
    Image sample after updation

    Auto Mode: http://someimage.com/qlEwxWb
    Clear Image Mode: http://someimage.com/Tpt3xAe
    HDR Mode: http://someimage.com/sze0c0u
    Beauty Mode: http://someimage.com/A2RVb6j

    If the above host not working for you. Download the images from here. Link

    Edit : Clear Image Mode is only limited to Back Camera Only. It is not for front camera. I just noticed that.


    Now lets get to con's department. Few con's are already being said before and @cyanogen already said they are working on it. And let me add that con and some of other that I found during my daily use with this new latest update of 30O:
    1. Bad Battery Backup (Already Found)
    2. Force Close of my gallery, games, camera, and other apps. Don't tell me to wipe my cache or dalvik cache. Because I have done that twice or I guess thrice times.
    3. UI a bit sluggish and laggy. Not as smooth as it was on 25R.
    4. When I hit power button it takes around a second or half to turn on = Slow processing or laggy.
    5. While playing games. Now I can't bring the notification bar down. By sliding it down. If not tried do it now and check yourself.
    6. Heating problem still. Well this is with my OPO only because this problem was also there in 25R update.
    7. Cannot set lock screen wallpaper now.

    Do share your experience also. And if any other cons which you discover apart from what I mentioned here.

    While playing games you are able to bring notification bar down? And if you use any theme and then try to set the lockscreen wallpaper from other theme. For Eg: Install and use them Flux or any other theme. Then install Android L theme and try to set Android L theme's lockscreen wallpaper only. Just the lockscreen wallpaper of Android L rest must be Flux. Try this and tell.

    I admit it is quite bad.

    My battery went down... but not as much as others.

    Sometimes the UI is slower.

    Mix theme = Style of some other theme, sound pack of some other theme, wallpaper and lockscreen wallpaper of some other theme.

    For eg: I have installed Flux and I use it for Icons, Fonts. And I have samsung S5 theme for style, ringtones, wallpapers.

    I also saw that in 25R the memory was 2893mb. But after updating it to 30O the memory size is decreased and now it is 2885mb.
