    Jerry , Sep 20, 2014 :
    Even though 40 weeks have passed since we first began the Weekly Updates, our Never Settle attitude and passion for creating the best possible user experience continues to burn with the intensity of a thousand suns. And it is also because of this vision that we announced the discontinuation of the StyleSwap Covers this week, due to a number of challenges; in the end, we simply weren’t comfortable with releasing the covers to everyone that doesn’t offer the best experience. However, we will have a limited quantity of Bamboo covers for sale that have already passed quality assurance and look amazing. If you are interested in the Bamboo StyleSwap Cover, please look out for an announcement.

    More than offsetting the StyleSwap discontinuation news is the launch of the OnePlus Blog, and our announcement on it that in late October, we plan on selling the OnePlus One using a new Pre-order System. This doesn’t mean that we are ending the Invite System; both will exist and serve different purposes. If you have an invite for the OnePlus One, you will be able to order from confirmed stock. With the Pre-order System, we will ship devices as stock becomes available. For those who haven’t had a chance to buy the OnePlus One, we hope you guys are excited. The Pre-order System will be a much easier way to get your hands on the OnePlus One.

    As a reminder, the London Fan Gathering is in four days, and the xda:devcon is only a few days after in Manchester. If you are based in the UK and interested in meeting the OnePlus Team, come pay us a visit!

    Production & Software

    The latest OTA is being tested further. We expect the process to take a few weeks, which means you guys should receive it sometime in mid-October. Production continues to increase with overwhelming demand. As we improve our efficiency and quality control, more and more devices can be shipped to you guys. For accessories, we are cooking up something new. So look out in the coming weeks for new releases.

    Customer Support

    Our Customer Support teammates launched what we call Insanity Week, a hard push to solve as many support tickets as we can by congregating everyone in our Brainstorm Room. We hope you guys have seen the results of their hard work and that your inquiries were answered with clarity, professionalism, and speed.

    As always, we are looking for more people to join the OnePlus team. More people who have the will and desire to make a dent in the world. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, send us your resume: http://oneplus.net/careers.

    Lastly, despite the best effort from David and I, Emmanuel and Miguel bested us in the Foosball Series, beating us narrowly, 10-8.

    Yeah, I guess I have to be here everyday until I get too see when the limited amount of bamboo covers go for sale. I just hope they don't sell out within a matter of minutes, I at least want something to make my OPO even more awesome than it already is. :)

    Not really, imo!

    If there are going to be Kevlar-backed limited edition units, are they to be sold per invite or by pre-order?

    Another thing that's not clear to me; are you shipping preorder units to any country, or just the original launch countries again?

    Seems like a charging dock for the OPO, I guess that's' one of the new accessories hitting the OnePlus store ;)

    Test the OTA good cause all the bugs need to be ironed out to shut the mouths of many critics, myself included. Keep up the good work and never settle! :)
