Cyanogen Inc., Makes CyanogenMod Available for Non-CM Versions of the OPPO N1

December 26, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

We’ve heard a lot about the OPPO N1, and actually a lot about OPPO in particular. The OPPO N1 was the first phone that was partnered with Cyanogen Inc. It’s now shipping with CyanogenMod pre-installed, although that is a limited edition. OPPO also shipped a version of the OPPO N1 that has their own ColorOS ROM on board. However, CyanogenMod has now released their ROM for existing versions of the OPPO N1.

As you may already know, CyanogenMod has been customized to support the OPPO N1 and all of it’s different hardware and software features that are on the device. Some of the unique support they built in were for the rotating camera up top, and the O-Click Bluetooth remote control as well as various features from ColorOS like double-tap to wake. Which is something we are familiar with on the LG G2.

As far as installation goes, it’s actually quite easy. And it’s even easier to revert back to stock, and load ColorOS back on your device. OPPO has posted the full instructions over on their forums. But the gist of it is, you’re basically downloading the file and copying it onto your N1, then launching the system update app found in the tools folder in the app drawer. Next you’ll select “Local update” and then tap “upgrade now”. Once in the recovery, you’ll want to select English, then wipe data and cache and install from SD card. Then you’re all done. One of the great things about OPPO, is you don’t have to worry about rooting your device. There’s no need for it.

For those of you with the OPPO N1, you can find out all the information over on the forum thread on OPPO’s forums. It’s really quite easy to do. It’s almost easier than flashing CyanogenMod onto a Nexus, which is dead easy, for those that have done it before. If you’ve got the N1 and decide to flash CyanogenMod, let us know in the comments below how it works out for you.
