OnePlus Not Supporting Custom ROMs Anymore?

    tyler539 , Jan 8, 2015 :
    I was browsing the Dev section of the forums, and all of the custom ROMs that OnePlus previously backed + officially supported (CM, ColorOS, PA, etc.) have been unpinned, left to drift off into the forums.

    Was this due to Lollipop ROMs coming out, or the section getting cluttered, or is OnePlus removing their "support" (by pinning them) due to them trying to push their own OS now? Or is some MOD just going crazy on the "unpin" button? :eek:

    I know all OP did for these ROMs were pin them, but I wonder if it was for neatness, or if OP is trying to "eliminate" some competition maybe.

    What do you guys think? I personally think it was a little of both, the Dev page was kinda cluttered, but at the same time, OP was trying to level the field a little in prep for OP ROM.
    Used to look like this (this is snapshot from October, but there were even more links yesterday!)

    No hate on OnePlus at all, I'm a fan, just kinda struck me due to ROMs being there for months and months and then BAM gone!

    I think OP will try to make it's own ROM above all other ROM's available for the one.

    XDA is where you should be looking for development, not on this forum.

    The UI is stock android? I think TW and Stock Lollipop are FAR FAR different!

    There is no custom ui on it.... It's stock.

    @go for.android13 You sir are a slim slim majority...I have honestly never heard anyone compare Stock with looking almost as bad as TouchWiz....first time I've ever heard that...I know people don't always like their phones unthemed, but dang, that's a steep comparison!

    I'm not really a fan of lollipop. It's too white. Kit Kat is nicer looking.

    I do hate nexus the worst part of nexus outside of plain bright holo android is no native MMS.apk they force you to use hangouts and they go one step further by making the installed hangouts notification system deep so when you put on a "stock" MMS.apk you get notifications from both hangouts and MMS.apk with no way to turn it off correctly and not mess up other notifications that do come in for your messages in hangouts

    Its a pos way of implementing a ui

    Personally, I like the stock MMS.apk (NOT hangouts), but I also equally love Google Messenger :)

    I think he's just trying to cover up his blunder. He clearly stated:
    Which shows that he thought they had added an UI other than stock. He later says:
    "That's exactly my point its ugly"
    .... Dafuq? Lol

    No stock unthemed bright holo white is the worst especially if you have any vision issues like I do the bright white glares off the glasses and makes it almost painful to look at
