    Flashers, hold onto your hats! We’re happy to be partnering with our friends over at Canonical and the open source community to announce that the OnePlus One is joining the Ubuntu family.

    While you’re on the move, Ubuntu offers quick access to all of your content and the full command line interface. The tailor-made smartphone version of Ubuntu was meticulously designed to revolve around your life. Ubuntu’s scopes bring everything you need together on one screen, so your favorite services and content are always within reach.

    At OnePlus we’re proud of how open our devices have been in the past. We’re committed to ensure that all of our devices are as open as possible. The release of Ubuntu on the OnePlus One underlines this commitment, while development on a OnePlus X release is well underway. Developers, fans and tech enthusiasts have all been clamoring for a full Ubuntu release on a phone. We’re excited that our devices are some of the first to receive an Ubuntu release. Be aware, the Ubuntu release that is currently available for the OnePlus One remains a work in progress and more features are expected to be added to the build in the future.

    Work on a full OnePlus X release is in progress. Calling all developers! The community has encountered a number of difficulties in the development process. Anyone interested in helping out with the OnePlus X build is welcome on Ubuntu’s developer page.

    Can’t wait to get flashing? You can find an image of the OnePlus One build here. Also, if you’re attending MWC, make sure to stop by Canonical’s stand to take the OnePlus One, Ubuntu in-tow, for a test drive.

    Never Settle.

    I don't know how to react to this. On one hand, it'll really be a unique experience to flash a non-android OS onto my phone, but it sucks that Ubuntu does not have a comparable app ecosystem to that of Android. If it's easy to flash (just being like any other ROM), then I'll probably try it out, but I doubt it can be daily driver material for me. Good job to Ubuntu and Oneplus for making this happen though. Perhaps my concerns will be proven wrong.
