    Well that was 4 hours of my life I am never going to get back. I tried to follow the instructions. I downloaded to my phone TWRP, I found the "bacon" and I think that is where things began to go wrong.

    Now I love my Oneplus one, it is the best phone I have every had and I have had a lot. But I think it is unfair to presume that with a few instructions "zip unzip etc, we will all mange to get Oxgen Os.

    My final result was to get stuck in some boot mode nearly causing me a heart attack and then 30 minutes of pressing up down on off button like a loon.

    We are not all computer savvy. You presume we are? So now what? I am disappointed. I think I shall not be praising you and your phone as much as I was

    there are plenty of other instruction guides out there that can help you
    all you have to do is look
    i started off not knowing what i was doing but i managed to figure it out
    just keep looking

    They said in the original post that only proceed if you're confident in flashing a custom ROM. If you're not good at doing that, what is the point of messing up your device and make your life miserable?

    Therefore I can not have OxygenOS, seems a bit unfair.

    Wait for the OTA for the CM12S if you're not willing to put in some time to learn these things... You still have an awesome phone even without the Oxygen Os, which seems lot of people are disappointed with anyways...

    it's pretty simple if you ask me.. first of all you have to set it up... download android sdk (.exe one from here) http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html#Other now when download completes install only the platform tools and usb driver... assuming that you've made it this far, let me go ahead... your device name might a0001 or so.. got to device manager find the device and uninstall.. now reconnect your device and when it says installed, got the device again and update device driver and when asked, click let me pick, next choose from a specified driver and click next, then you'll get an option like have a disk, click on that, browse to C:/program files/android/android-sdk/extras/google.. something like that.. you check the twrp instruction in the link for more infro.. now change your cmd directory to the one I mentioned till platform tools (change the extras)... now follow the instruction for windows in the thread and you're done..

    oh and right click on your computer and properties, advanced system settings and add path for both your tools and path tools in the sdk folder in path variable, right after putting semicolon at the end of each and to the previous one...

    Don't. Do. Not. It's decently fast, but it is featureless. Doesn't even have maxxaudio or any oxygen apps yet. This should be an alpha still, beta at most.
