If you are the proud owner of the OnePlus One then today was supposed to be a good day for you. In spite of CM12 nightlies being available and also an alpha release of the OnePlus homegrown OS, OxygenOS being released. OnePlus One owners have yet to experience a proper, stable and full release of an Android 5.0 (Lollipop) based OS. This was supposed to change today, with OnePlus recently announcing that they would be rolling out OxygenOS today, March 27th. On a slightly side note, the announcement also did state that CM 12S for the OnePlus One will be following on Monday (March 30th).
Well, as today’s date neared and OnePlus One owners were readying themselves for the Oxygen Release, OnePlus yesterday held one of their routine ‘ask me almost anything’ (AMAA) conversations on reddit. In replying to a couple of user questions, it became clear that OnePlus was not expecting OxygenOS to be released today as scheduled. At the time, there was no direct confirmation, but the OnePlus team were strongly hinting that the rollout would miss today’s date. The reason being, awaiting Google certification.
Well, if you were still living in hope that today would bring OxygenOS to your OnePlus One then it looks like the delay has now become an official delay. OnePlus have this morning sent out a forum post detailing that OxygenOS will definitely not be rolling out today as planned. Again, the reason given was waiting on Google Certification. Like yesterday, the OnePlus announcement does state that the OS is up and running and a number of the OnePlus team members are using it as a daily driver. In terms of when, there was no official confirmation provided for a likely delivery date, although the announcement does state OnePlus will provide daily updates on the progress until it is released. These updates will come via the announcement post (source link below). In terms of CM 12S which was due to land on Monday, no direct confirmation was given on this as well. Although, today’s announcement did hint that this also might not be arriving on Monday as scheduled “Together, we’re working to deliver CM12 to you as soon as possible“.
