    Two weeks ago, OnePlus threw some light on their upcoming OxygenOS. Their blog post didn't so much talk about their OS as it did about it's developer team - a mix and match of top Devs handpicked by OP to make its home-grown custom ROM.

    If you went through the list, 3 out of 5 of the Android developers are from Paranoid Android - one of them is even the cofounder of PA! Arz, who is from India and also the UI designer at PA is also designing OxygenOS' UI.

    This seems like a direct hit intended at Cyanogen and its greedy devs who sold out to Micromax. PA and Cyanogen are the 2 most popular Custom ROMs, and it seems fitting, even poetic, that OnePlus has chosen PA devs to make something even better/more customizable than CM.

    I haven't tried PA before, but given this new team, seems like the new OS is going to be much closer to PA than CM. Those of you who have used PA, how is it as an OS? How does it compare to CM? What are your thoughts about upcoming OxygenOS vs. CM battle, and which will you choose? :)

    Why is this a counter tho, naturally you'd want ppl with experience in your team (this is why getting a job as a new grad is hard!)

    Old news,


    Gives greater hope for OxygenOS though. PA 4.5/4.6 was great on the opo :)

    Using PA since i got my One. After rooting, first thing i did was get rid of CM. It's always buggy for me, PA doesn't update as often, but when they do, it works.

    OxygenOS could be good :)

    Click bait?

    Why so aggressive towards CM?
    CM wants to be in business and India is a lucrative market and Micromax caters towards the masses where majority of phones will be sold.

    It true that CM sucked as there was no proper intimation to OP.

    This doesnt mean CM sucks or is greedy or PA rules over CM and vice-versa.

    You haven't tried PA before but you think PA and OP are match made in heaven? :)

    hit intended at Cyanogen ?? Kids...

    Cyanogen dont make phones, wake up. None of what OPO is doing is going to hurt CM.

    I didn't say CyanogenMod, the software sucks. But the company has much to learn,and their recent behaviour has not helped their PR much. Not giving OTA in India for ex.

    I know that. But part of the OPO's appeal was the CM collaboration, and the ensuing publicity inadvertently ended up helping Cyanogen Inc, which was an upstart just like OnePlus. Any loss of business is bad for a start up, not even including the bad press they have received.

    @sverma First this is old news and you have already posted the same topic in Indian thread. Why duplicate it again

    Mods Please close this and above mentioned thread, unnecessarily duplicating and discussing old topic.
    @ravi4ever @goldenboyrb @finaldentiny @Jevoly Thank you
