    Ahhhh, at least the AMA on Reddit gives more info than just an announcement of the OxygenOS team.

    But with the debut of the ROM coming out in March, and with Lollipop of CM12S looming in the horizon, I am more biased towards CM's version of Lollipop.

    Good to know that the ROM can be flashed via the Recovery method.

    You're missing the point, it's common courtesy not to copy something in it's entirety and whether you do or just partially copy it, it's also expected that you leave a link to where you copied it from in the first place.

    Good news, it will be released in March (at the end of the month) and it will have stock google camera (no slow motion and other option close to stock), no camera 2api/HAL 3 no maxxaudio.
    Really good job

    thanks for the info, Threshold. It's a real shame that they won't make it OTA (or provide some other automated way to install it). Given that, I'm probably (and unfortunately) going to stick with CM :(

    There's no real way to provide an OTA because it will have to wipe your device to install. There is no upgrade path when going from 2 different custom Android OSes. I do agree that it would be nice if they provided a tool for regular users to switch though.

    Yeah, maybe I'm being a bit of a whiner but I don't know why they can't go the extra few yards and make it more easily installable for those folks that aren't as comfortable doing something other than an OTA update.

    Thanks for explaining it. Makes sense. Though like you said, they should also provide a tool along with the new OS to make it easy for ALL users to install. Seems sort of like the logical next step, right? (I mean, you don't go to a restaurant an order a bowl of soup and get it dumped on your lap. Even if it's takeout in NYC!!!!).

    Did you read what I wrote before the quote? The same information is contained in the quote as well. Did you miss the word "Reddit"?

    Google Camera - Yay! (no slo-mo etc. - buy a video camera!)
    No camera 2api/HAL3 - No what and what?
    No Maxx Audio - Woohoo! Maxx Audio is shit and makes music sound like crap. Good riddance.
