    never said you were dumb man. It's just a pretty simple process is what I'm saying. and as my second comment pointed out, these "installers" take some time to make (Cyanogen hasn't released an official stable installer for many phone models) and we should worry more about OPO delivering rather than HOW they deliver

    I know that rom flashing is not like installing apps. I'm asking for an installer along the lines of the CM one. We have a great community here and I'm pretty sure that we can do it.

    I know it's possible to make an installer because it's been done. I know it's not that tough to flash a Rom. I'm just asking oneplus if they can make an installer in the future. I'm not asking them to make it immediately it'd be better if they focused on the quality of the rom itself. I'm just asking them IF they can make it.

    whoa there man, not different OS...they're all based on the AOSP...

    It wouldn't be that hard to program the same wipe that recoveries are capable of through an installer.....it would maybe just take some time

    We most likely can...but we won't know until we see the Rom itself...it might take devs a short time or a long time....

    Because it's close to AOSP as the makers suggest...maybe it won't be that hard

    answer: yes....anything's possible :) but only time will tell if devs in the community or the OPO team will have to step up

    People who don't know how to flash a ROM are not dumb either. They just don't have the technical interest to have tried something like that yet!

    I did, he was talking about how the cyanogen installer doesn't erase stuff completely while usually flashing ROMS requires the user to erase everything...

    Well, while Cyanogenmod is a different "OS" or Rom..it is still built from AOSP, so Oxygen OS another Rom from AOSP can do the same with some effort

    I know that @Happytab I just thought that @Salmonfish was trying to imply that I was dumb however the misunderstanding say sorted and as they say all's well that ends well.

    PS did you vote on the poll

    There are a few things that will make the installer easier:
    1. This installer would only need to work with 1 phone unlike the cm installer.
    2. It would basically need to function as an automated toolkit with a fancy UI.
