Owners of OnePlus One handsets might want to start tapping the Software Update button on their devices because Cyanogen’s OS 12 Lollipop update is busy rolling out after passing certification a few days ago. That’s right, the wait is (finally) over, and now you can choose whether to continue using Cyanogen’s firmware or the OxygenOS ROM developed by OnePlus.

If you are a OnePlus One owner and were expecting today’s major decision to be whether or not to carry on using CyanogenMod 12S firmware or to turn to the home-grown OxygenOS, you are going to be a little disappointed. As Justin predicted, the release date has been missed and no new date has yet been announced.

Dubbed as the “Zeus of phones“, Indian OEM Micromax has just announced the Yureka handset in the country. This is officially the first Cyanogen OS running smartphone in India ever since Micromax struck an exclusive deal with Cyanogen for the use of its custom ROM. This whole ordeal has even led to the ban of the OnePlus One in India as it also runs Cyanogen OS by default.
As the old adage goes: another day, another muddled response from Cyanogen regarding the availability of the Cyanogenmod OS on non-Micromax devices.
Despite the fact that more people are starting to see their OnePlus Ones, the flagship that’s easier on the wallet is already beginning its path to retirement.

Late last week, OnePlus announced a surprising development in their partnership with CyanogenMod, Inc., supplier of one of the operating systems used on the OnePlus One smartphone.

The exclusive nature of CyanogenMod’s new partnership means OnePlus owners will not receive future updates to the operating system.
