The rumored OnePlus 8 Lite could launch as the OnePlus Z later in the year

It looks like we're going to see two flagship smartphones launch as part of the OnePlus 8 series on April 14. The Chinese company was previously expected to add a mid-range ‘Lite’ handset to this mix, but it sounds like this has been deferred to a later date. The OnePlus 8 Lite is now rumored to come out as the OnePlus Z — succeeding the five-year-old OnePlus X, which wasn’t received all that well at the time.

OnePlus is silent about Nougat for the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X, and owners are pissed

The OnePlus 3 and 3T were some of the best phones of last year, especially given their low prices. Both phones were updated to Nougat at the end of 2016, being among the first non-Google devices to receive the new version. Unfortunately, OnePlus has yet to update the OnePlus 2 or OnePlus X to Nougat, and isn't communicating with customers.

In the last week new nightly builds have been added for no less than ten new phones and tablets, including notable models from Motorola, Samsung, OnePlus, and Amazon. All of them now have CM 14.1 (based on Android 7.1.1 AOSP code) builds available.

OnePlus X is finally receiving stable OxygenOS builds of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

It may have taken an extraordinarily long time, but OnePlus is finally sending out stable Marshmallow OTAs to the OnePlus X, the company's budget phone, in the form of OxygenOS 3.1.2 (and now 3.1.3). Although OnePlus did begin offering Marshmallow in the form of the OxygenOS 3.1.0 Community Build over a month ago, it had a few bugs that needed to be weeded out. At last, 6.0.1 is ready for prime time on the X.

OxygenOS 3.1.0 Community Build now available for OnePlus X

The OnePlus X is a great little device for $250, with its borderline-flagship specs and small form factor. Although OnePlus has said they don't intend on making a direct successor to the X, at least they are still updating it. Starting today, OnePlus is making the Oxygen 3.1.0 Community Build (based on Android 6.0.1) available for the OnePlus X, just in time for Android 7.0.

If you're unfamiliar, OnePlus tends to release Community Builds of an update before the OTAs begin to roll out. The OxygenOS 3.1.0 build brings changes from Android 6.0.1, new icon packs for the launcher, a new wallpaper picker, and various Shelf UX improvements.

CyanogenMod 13 Nightly Builds Now Available For The OnePlus X

Relatively low prices and a wide-open attitude towards user customization make OnePlus phones popular with the ROM crowd. They're getting a big boon today, as official CyanogenMod support comes to the smaller, cheaper OnePlus X.

The first release is up on CyanogenMod's download page right now.

TWRP Custom Recovery Now Available On The OnePlus X And The Honor 5X

The OnePlus X and the Honor Huawei 5X have a lot in common: relatively low prices, slick case designs, and far-reaching marketing campaigns. And now both of them can be loaded with the fan-favorite Team Win Recovery Project, a custom Android recovery that makes loading custom ROMs and other modifications easy. Users can download the recovery images at the official TWRP site, here and here.

The Android community (or at least that part of it that uses custom recoveries) tends to gravitate around certain models, if only because there are so many these days that it's impossible to support every one with every ROM.
