    I've tried them all and Resurrection Remix 5.1.1 build 11/20/2015 is superior. Battery back up is great, customization is outta this world and stability is even better than stock (Seriously better than stock. The last official CyanogenOS 12.1 release was a mess).

    I have not installed a custom ROM but I believe that it is one of the most important features OnePlus has over its competitors. Like the guys at XDA said a good developer community increases the longevity and practicality of the device. We have seen the effects of open sourcing and a large developer base do for other companies. Therefore it should be of utmost concern for OnePlus to cater to developers as they can definitely help the phone succeed.

    I have an OP2. I have not found a custom rom where the fingerprint reader and the laser camera works.

    The best part of owning the Oneplus one was the ability to flash custom ROM's at will. No losing warranty and blah! Tried a lot of ROM's and ended up with Oxygen due to its near stock nature..Waiting with the hope of receiving the next updates on oxygen...
    BTW I'm was multirom with CM12 and O2 last before wifey switched phones. Stuck on a LG G2 now :(

    This is also the reason why Apple sells.

    I think the reason Apple sells is much more complex than that but it would be too much of an off-topic to post it here and it would only fuel the typical flame war between hate/fanboys.

    Can't agree more with you! On a side note, do you have any good ROM recommendations for the OP2? I'm on stock now but 2.2.0 has caused massive battery drain (64%-18% just by leaving it on the desk overnight) and slow charging which heats it up a lot. Before the update everything worked just fine.

    Have you tried a factory reset? I'm having zero issues with my OP2.

    I was running CM12.1 on the OPO until I got my G4. In my case, I'm used to CyanogenMod and just prefer the look and feel of the ROM.

    I may have to see whether CM13 is ready for prime time on the OPO. My G4's bootloader is locked. :p

    Not yet. I wiped the cache in recovery though, that didn't help. Will probably factory reset in the next few days when i have time to do it.

    Havent installed one. Eagerly waiting for a custom rom that supports all the hardware feature. Especially finger print sensor and laser auto focus.
