The folks at CyanogenMod are on a roll with Chinese hardware. After adding official support for the Xiaomi Mi2, they've now published the first nightly ROMs for the OnePlus One and the very similar Oppo Find 7A. You can find the One download and forthcoming builds under the "bacon" codename, while the Find 7A is available under the Find7 label. Team WIN Recovery Project is already available for both phones.


A little clarification: according to a member of the CyanogenMod team, the release for the Find 7A may also work for the Find 7, the more premium model with a 2560x1440 screen, among other hardware upgrades. However, the CM team doesn't have a Find 7 to test the build with, so official support has only been declared for the 7A. You're welcome to try out the ROM on the Find 7, but as always, remember that you'll be doing so at your own risk.

It's also worth noting that flashing a nightly build of CyanogenMod on the crowd-pleasing OnePlus One is a little superfluous, since it already runs CyanogenMod. The CM build on the "retail" version of the One has a few small UI and functionality enhancements, so it's technically "CyanogenMod 11S." (See our review of the OnePlus One for full details.) The nightly build is standard CyanogenMod 11, so while it will probably get new CM features faster than the 11S build on the retail model, it won't have those small extras.

Both ROMs are available for download and flashing now, and there should be newer nightlies available soon. You may want to wait a few weeks to see if they're added to the list of devices supported by the more stable M builds. If you're ready to go now, don't forget your Gapps.

      Doesn't work on Find 7. TWRP, CWM, Philz all error out. Its looking for a "Find7" when the device is an X9006.

        Just edit the update-script in the zip file. Take out the assert check lines.

          I didn't think about taking them out, I just edited it the first 3 Find7 entries to X9007, and it worked for me.

        Turn verification off

    The current build of TWRP won't flash builds with the asserts listed as solely find7a. It's also a prop that's pulled directly from recovery, and not from /system/build.prop (like all over recoveries), so one doesn't simply edit the build.prop to fix. If you have TWRP installed as your recovery on the find7a, you'll need to flash cwm, Cyanogen Simple Recovery, or unzip the build, remove the device assert from the updater-scrip, rezip and resign.

    This is a "feature" of TWRP I despise. If it's checking system property's, it should check the system properties that the rest of the system uses/sets.

      Over/other proofread fail.

    • Luqmaan Mathee

      Can't you turn signature verification off?

  • tintin.92

    Is this (nightlies) gonna be the official way for OnePlus users to get software updates? Cuz CM is nice as an aftermarket software, but if it's the official rom for a phone, I'd expectit to be bug free.

  • Vito Lee

    Is there still the option to choose between capacitive and on screen buttons? I would rather use nightlies when I get this phone.

    • Antonio_lovy

      yes. there is ;)

  • knize10

    HOW do you flash these updates? I tried several times to no avail.
