How to Flash CM12S YNG1TAS17L on your OnePlus One

By Rich W Woods Earlier this week, you might have heard that OnePlus One was pausing roll out for CM12S due to wanting to add an additional voice search feature. Then today, the roll out went back online, and it turned out that it wasn’t voice search at all that caused them to pause the roll out, but really just a bug in the OTA. Every OnePlus One owner I’ve ever met (and I spend a…

By Rich W Woods Earlier this week, we reported that OnePlus was temporarily pausing the rollout for CM12S because they wanted to add a voice search option. Well, the rollout is back, and voice search is now available in your settings; however, Steve Kondik sings a different tune as to why the rollout was halted to begin with. The issues were bug related. Some users in certain scenarios were unable to install the update via…

OnePlus One: CM12 vs ColorOS Comparison

OnePlus One: CM12 vs ColorOS Comparison

By Rich W Woods I’m going to be completely honest. These last couple weeks have been exhausting for me, and the comparisons I’ve done with the OnePlus One haven’t helped. First, it was OnePlus One users asking me to compare the OnePlus One to other camera apps, such as CameraNextMod and ColorOS Camera. The results were nothing spectacular, so I looked forward to OxygenOS, which would bring all new firmware to the device. Once OxygenOS…

OnePlus One vs iPhone 6 Camera Comparison Part 4: CM12

OnePlus One vs iPhone 6 Camera Comparison Part 4: CM12

By Rich W Woods It has been a long road thus far. Way back in September, I compared the OnePlus One camera to the iPhone 6 Plus. It was before I really started doing a lot of more extensive camera comparisons, so I followed it up a few months later with a comparison of the OnePlus One and the iPhone 6. The OnePlus One provided poor, washed out photos. Later, OnePlus pushed out an update,…

CM12 for OnePlus One Paused to Add Voice Search

CM12 for OnePlus One Paused to Add Voice Search

By Rich W Woods Hey, remember when the OnePlus One used to be able to do that thing? You used to be able to choose from OK OnePlus, OK Google, or OK Snapdragon to wake up the phone? Well, I don’t remember that either. That feature was removed before I got my hands on mine. Well, it looks like that feature will be returning, in an interesting way. If you haven’t received CM12 yet, when…

OnePlus One Camera Comparison: OxygenOS vs ColorOS Camera

OnePlus One Camera Comparison: OxygenOS vs ColorOS Camera

By Rich W Woods This should be the last of the camera comparisons since OxygenOS was released for the OnePlus One. So far, the stock camera app, Google Camera, has underperformed its predecessor, Cyanogen Camera on CyanogenMod 11. We’ve also shown that CameraNextMod is a massive improvement on the stock Google Camera app. It would seem that the quest for the perfect picture with the OnePlus One is a never ending one. Plenty of OnePlus…

OnePlus One No Longer Requires an Invitation

OnePlus One No Longer Requires an Invitation

By Rich W Woods The OnePlus One was one of the most coveted devices of 2014. It was a phone with all of the specs of a flagship competitor, better in some cases, but it came at half the price. It was also known for the unique invited system, which subsequently got people to care about the brand and become part of the OnePlus community. Last week, OnePlus sent out invitations to members of the…

OnePlus One Camera Comparison: Oxygen OS vs CameraNextMod

By Rich W Woods I’ve had a lot of work to do with the OnePlus One lately. After all, we all care about what the camera can do but there is quite a bit of question as to what the right way to do it is. When the OnePlus One first came out, the camera was terrible. All of the photos looked washed out. that led to users suggesting the HDR, Clear Image, and Smart…

OnePlus One vs iPhone 6 Camera Comparison Part 3: OxygenOS

By Rich W Woods This will be the fourth comparison I’ve made between the OnePlus One and either the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus. The first was OnePlus One vs iPhone 6 Plus. It was a brief comparison, lacking a lot of what I include these days. It was early times, before I realized how in demand these comparisons would be. I ended up trading in the iPhone 6 Plus for the iPhone…

Hands on With CyanogenMod 12 for OnePlus One

Hands on With CyanogenMod 12 for OnePlus One

By Rich W Woods A couple days ago now, Cyanogen finally released CM12 to the OnePlus One, after what seemed like an endless run of delays. At first, we were told that it would be available within 90 days. After they failed to meet the deadline, we were told March 30. After they failed to meet the deadline, we all waited anxiously until the release. After living with OxygenOS for a week, I was very…
