    So CYANOGEN has an easy to use Installer. So why can't we make an installer which is easy to use for the people who couldn't be bothered about rooting their phone and they just click a button and get Oxygen OS for they're one. Firstly many more people would try it out. And if rooting doesn't void your warranty why not offer this.

    PS Please don't troll me I know how to root.

    We can name it oxygen cylinder

    Edit: @neyzen69 pointed out that it doesn't back your data up..... I want this installer to back my data up.

    I think you think of it way too simply.
    You probably don't understand how much work it takes just to make a whole new operating system... And then make a whole installer for it.
    We don't want one plus to be biting off a lot more than it can chew.
    Suggestions are nice, but let's have them go follow through stable footsteps to focus on the quality of the rom instead of the quantity of users on the rom.
    Once the quality is established, many would request of ways to make it simple, since the quality is promising, it will give them more time to focus on simplicity rather than bug fixes and etc.

    I just suggested it if it ain't possible don't do it. But seeing as CM can do it im banking on OnePlus to beat them on it.

    this

    Just leave it up to the community to come up with the solutions to make installation easier for everyone

    OK so just a frank question to @amorales2 and @korkarlb. Was the CM installer developed by the community. IF so can't we as a community develop Somerthing along its line I'm pretty sure that great developers like @Aaahh can do it.

    great post, if Oxygen is going to be successful they need to make installation easier, much like Samsung Skies.

    to be able to flash new ROM you need to have some things done at first place.
    ROM changing is not like app installation. and Oxygen OS is different OS than CM so you can not jus I stall over! your phone needs to be fully wiped beforehand

    They're most likely gonna post a detailed description as to how to unlock the boot loader and flash the rom....

    the nifty Cyanogenmod installer hasn't been ported to the OPO yet because OPO uses the special 11"S" instead of the mainstream 11....

    the installer ports take a lot of time thus the reason many models haven't been covered yet by Cyanogen. Let's hope OPO can deliver by the 27th and 30th first and actually get the Rom out there before we talk about HOW they get it out there
