    you can download the messaging app in the play store and any other apps you like. I presumed Oxygen OS will evolve based on the users feedback and not by its will in the near future.

    Next they need to get layers imbedded for theming!! And remain easy to root. With this they have a shot. Without theming and root friendly the "two" is dead. They are too slow in ROM to keep up to others. Best off partnering with slim.

    I don't know if I should just stay with CM11s and wait for the CM12 OTA or go Oxygen lol.

    OxygenOS is not going to be an over-the-air update. If you want it, you'll have to install it manually via recovery.

    Just install it, try it and provide feedback for improvements. Easy to jump back and forth. Make a backup.

    It's best to stay for now I guess if you use your phone for everything :) I don't use my phone that much, so it was not hard for me to wipe all data and flashed a new rom. If CM12 will roll out, I might change to CM12..

    There's should be no problem going back and forth with different and multiple OS. The problem is how most of the end users can do it as what this thread is flooded with manual installation problem.

    The whole thing on upgrade sounds Greek to me. I am a gadget loving guy who used to be a techie but no more.

    Since when I need to learn and use SDK just in order to update my OS. That too the legit OS from the manufacture . Most of the steps sounds complex and have a disclaimer... "You have been warned...." You may lose your data... N scary stuff.

    I prefer an IOS style update option in settings that just want me to plug the power to device and Viola!!! After 5 minutes I have upgraded everything. No loss of data whatsoever... All apps in place and smooth like silk. I don't even need to bother to tether the device to PC or anything. The magic happens in the background.

    Is there any easier way to get lolipop or I need to learn this ******* stuff just coz I made the mistake to buy n support an unknown but promising device. I know it was my decision but I was never told that these guys are so darn techie and novice at business.

    Any help on a simpler update method would save the holidays.

    Thanks and happy easter to all.

    I just copied all the data to my PC and then moved it back when I was done. I use the Google Now launcher and that remembers what apps you had installed and replaces them automatically.

    I m a fan of CM... CM11s it's so good, I love it... Nothing bad to say as a regular user of my OPO while I'm with CM11s...now I give a try to Oxygen... Is good...smooth, simple, but good... I only miss the CM CameraNext... I downloaded it and no problem... It's Working as usual..
    I know that it has no CM Theming and other features that are really good in CM but I think Oxygen will have it in some time....
    I will use Oxygen for some weeks.... Maybe I stay or go back to cm... It depends on how comfortable I feel with oxygen.. At now... I'm good with it...

    Oxygen it's a good work... Even it has no "features" it's a great baseline for One Plus Two....

    I have reserved my first forum post for the right time.

    First you miss the release date and decide to inform us on the same day as April Fool's day. Then you release what is more or less a sloppy version of a dumbed down CM12 nightly? I had extremely high expectations of OxygenOS and you had to fail most of them on a release.

    I don't understand why this hype was built up for 1+O and then the release, bombed. You were already late, you could of at least waited until all of the features were working and beefed up the system with some custom applications. Not much about this is unique, and it should not be called it's own operating system. It should just be called "Modified CM12 nightly" or "Modified, slim AOSP".

    You should have a talk with Quality Assurance. I really wish this could have been a positive post, but you taught me best- I Never Settle.

    How frequently can we expect updates to this ? This does not seem like a really final verison
