    When I had my Nexus 5, Google came out with Lollipop and it was an easy OTA install. From Kit Kat to Lollipop, no problem. So why can't OPO do the same? Just asking.

    I think it will be easy to instal OxygenOS /stock CM11s recovery, no root , no custom recovery required/...
    Possible guide:
    1.
    download ROM package (zip) into phone,
    2. go to recovery /Turn Off phone, Volume - + Turn On/,

    3. wipe data/factory reset
    4.
    apply update /and choice downloaded ROM package/
    note: OxygenOS package will be signed... - no problem using stock recovery
    (4.1 wipe cache partition - for sure...)
    5. reboot system now
    6.
    done

    I like the concept. It would be nice if it also takes a bakcup of existing ROM. Just in case if we don't like we can revert back to original ROM :)

    I used CM Installer for my GS3 and it wiped everything.

    I dont want to root my phone for one simple reason. A large number of financial, banking and streaming apps wont work if they see a phone is rooted.

    I just want a quick and easy way of installing a stable, clean oxygen os if I choose.

    Ive absolutely no interest in flashing different roms. I bought the opo because it offered the best spec at the price...nothing more.

    The oneplus one is a phone for tech enthusiasts and flashing a rom is very easy, it's a cleaner method than using an installer anyways

    It's pointless, you know why? Because the effort is not worth it.
    Oxygen OS is only for OPO. Cyanogenmod is for a bunch of other devices.
    It might even increase the cost of the OPO.

    Bad idea. Why? Because people will find a way to screw up and won't realize where and how they did it which makes it impossible for them to recover their phones.

    Leave your phone the way it is then. Its quite possible that Oxygen OS may appear rooted to some appliactions, it currently happens on 11S with some apps.

    Until the contract between OP and CM is over, OP will keep Oxygen for flashing only. After the deal is over, OTA will follow. Of course, if Oxygen succeeds.

    This is a important issue. Convenience coupled with the prospect of damaging one's device is more than enough reason to provide a pain free installation method for OXYGEN. NEVER SETTLE!!!!

    That's not gonna be possible. Maybe if you wipe everything

    I am wondering why they do not accept a rooted phone?

    1. because they're jews
    2. if a virus infests your rooted device, the data which is secured in the app might get leaked through the root administration rights
