Invitations to buy the OnePlus One began going out yesterday, and now OnePlus has begun posting the kernel source for their device. So that those that want to dig around the kernel and create some custom kernels for the device can have at it. We can’t say we’re surprised that CyanogenMod did do this since they are the ones that used to depend on the source being put out so they can update their custom ROM to the latest version of Android and support more Android devices.
This will also help bring some of the features over from the OnePlus One to other devices, however, you won’t get all of the CyanogenMod 11S features, but you can get some of the goodies. It’s great to see the kernel source put out for this device, as it seems like it’ll be a hackers wet dream, or a flashaholic for that matter. As it is built by CyanogenMod so it should be very hacker friendly, which is great for those like me that want to root and flash their device.
Invitations just started going out yesterday for people to buy the OnePlus One, and we should see more of them hitting users in the next few weeks as they get shipped out. We’re still looking at a June release date for the public, for those still looking to pick up a OnePlus One, but didn’t get an invitation yet. We should have one in house soon and we’ll be sure to write a ton of content about the device and let everyone know if it’s truly worth the $350 for the 64GB or the $299 for the 16GB version.
