OnePlus One gets an official stock Android 4.4.4 based ROM


OnePlus today released a stock Android ROM for their flagship killer — the One — for users who find CyanogenMod a bit too overwhelming for their taste.

While CyanogenMod looks very similar to stock Android, it packs in a plethora of customization options, which can be overwhelming for new users.

The stock Android build released by OnePlus is based on Android 4.4.4  and comes without any kind of modifications whatsoever. Installing the ROM will require users to unlock their bootloader though, which in turn will wipe the internal memory of the handset, and installing a custom recovery as well. On the plus side, flashing the ROM will not void the warranty of the device

Sadly, the ROM is not completely bug free and has a couple of issues with the gyroscope not working properly on all devices and VPN and encryption being completely broken. There might be other undiscovered issues with the ROM as well. The company will be actively taking bug reports from its bleeding edge users and fix them until the ROM is 100% stable for daily use.
