    Thanks @Mike :) To be honest I was never satisfied with the Camera performance with custom roms:(. Using OPO for the last one year with Cyanogen os and i was satisfied with the overall performance. I'll flash a custom rom once the official cyanogen support is over ;).
    @Adam Krisko enjoy ur holidays... come back soon, I am waiting for my swag . :D

    I nearly spewed coffee from out my nose with laughter when I read this.

    The most critical factor for me is to have the latest android version as soon as possible.
    Apart from that, I would run stock. I would like the software to be as close to a Nexus as possible (stock android, speedy updates).
    Now running Sultan's CM13 (hire that guy!!!).

    Tbh I love stock but that's probably cos I have never tried other ROMs on my own device. Most of my mates with the OPO run Cynagen so that's about as far away from OP2 stock I've dabbled with so far

    Agreed, this is the best viable option for op2 users right now. I've tried the kernels but for what, 10 mins more battery? I think kernels are a boredom filler until 'fully functional' custom ROMs arrive.

    I usually run custom roms when they are stable and go back to stock when they get all unstable around new Android releases. I do like COS, Paranoid Android and Sense so sometimes I change just because I fancy it.

    I got my opo back in December, 2014 and was on stock ROM until this October. What drove me to a custom ROM was the amount of potential the phone has to offer. Tbh the camera and battery on the stock ROMs wasn't great and also I wasn't gonna root my device as I was very sceptical..yknow..my first phone and I honestly didn't have a clue if it was a safe thing to do.. But, after lots of reading, I finally decided to root and since then, I've never looked back...and never will! Right now, I'm running Sultan's CM13 build and man am I satisfied with this device! Using a custom ROM really gives the user so much more flexibility and that's exactly what I love! It's a pity I took so long to have installed a custom ROM but hey, better late than never! :D

    whoa...you sound like an Apple user!!

    but back on topic...I love Custom ROMs. I usually stay with stock ROM for approx 5-10 minutes...

    ...except when CM KitKat 44S came out. THAT was a pretty good stock ROM.

    Hi everybody,

    I have a OP2 and until last thursday i used the Stock Rom 2.2.0. Now, I'm using the CM 12.1 Temasek VISON from december 3rd, with oppen gapps, and all the problems with Bluetooth car kit gone away. I know that i had to sacrífice the Fingerprint anf Laser Auto Focus, but in mean time, I won a stable system, for my daily use, because I need to use this phone, all day, in my car. I think if the next rom 3.0 Oxygen use the Bluetooth code from CM, all problems would finish.
    So, I will stay in cyanogenmod unofficial 5.1.1. until CM 13 unofficial starts to be more stable, and I believe, very soon we'll have a stable CM 13.0. before the new OxygenOs based in marshmallow.

    Happy New Year!

    atm I'm on Exodus but I try CM13 now and then to see the future.
    But I miss some things from the stock ROM, like the "OK OnePlus".

    Wanting that a product that you spent money on works properly out-of-the-box is sounding like an Apple user? Okay, that's a first.
    I still flash Custom ROMs when devices stop receiving official updates or when there are stable releases of a new Android version, I just stopped flashing every ROM and kernel that popped up.

    Oxygen is close to stock android and i like the notification disabling etc

    I love stock oxygen, expecting few things like short press action and icon size, rest all is awesome.
