OnePlus OxygenOS team grabs Paranoid Android developers

OnePlus says that it is close to fully revealing the stuff that makes up its new OxygenOS. But before that, it is teasing its fans with a few juicy tidbits, like the core people who will be working on its own custom Android ROM. The startup was able to gather quite an international team of designers and developers, but quite curiously, six out of its eight core members actually come from the core developers of CyanogenMod's biggest ROM rival, Paranoid Android.

OmniROM shows signs of life, shares Lollipop progress

It's been a while since we've last heard from OmniROM but the rather ambitious project hasn't exactly gone silently into the night. The open source project is still alive and kicking even if it doesn't try to grab the spotlight like CyanogenMod and Paranoid Android often do. For this round, the team is shedding some light on their Android 5.0 activities and sadly, it's not all good news. The good news is, of course, that there is enough progress to soon have nightlies for supported devices.

OnePlus Oxygen UI leaked, Lollipop ROM teased

OnePlus seems to be picking up the pace to put its device back on track after the ugly mess it was involved with in India. Cyanogen Inc just recently tweeted that it was quite ready with a Lollipop build for the OnePlus One and based on a video from OnePlus itself, an Android 5.0 ROM is indeed ready. Whether it comes from Cyanogen or OnePlus directly, we don't know yet. What we do know, however, thanks to a leak, is that Oxygen OS will be colorfully flat.

OnePlus names own Android ROM as Oxygen, Hydrogen in China

It's no secret that OnePlus is cutting its ties with Cyanogen over the fiasco with Micromax in India. It has been developing its own custom ROM to replace CyanogenMod in its future devices. And while it isn't yet revealing what that ROM will look like or will offer, it is now announcing its chosen name. Its ROM will be called "Oxygen OS", at least in the rest of the world. But in China, it will be called Hydrogen instead.

Flyme OS 4 beta for Nexus 5 gets leaked

Xiaomi's MIUI won't be the only game in town soon, especially on the Nexus 5. The Chinese-made custom ROM has had many fans, but it seems like Meizu wants a piece of that pie as well. A leaked image of this Chinese manufacturer's custom-made Flyme OS 4 for the Nexus 5 has popped up and is making rounds over the net. And while the brave first testers described the ROM as "beautiful", subsequent tests revealed showstopper bugs that definitely confirms this image as an unofficial beta version.

Apart from the Nexus S, there’s another device that has received a long list of upgraded Android versions – this is the HTC Leo, more popularly known as the HTC HD2.

CyanogenMod gets the ball rolling for Lollipop-based CM12

Among the flood of CES 2015 news this week, this announcement is probably what CyanogenMod fans have been waiting for to kickstart the new year.

And with that, of course, comes the sweet promise of Android 5.0 Lollipop descending upon its users in the near future.

OmniROM looking to put out Android 5.0-friendly version soon

We’ve talked about OmniROM a number of times already here at Android Community. This was a project started a few years back in the wake of the CyanogenMod ROM project going commercial, and the response to the project has been very warm, with a number of famous developers getting on with the program. There were questions on how fast they were going to be able to put out a Lollipop-flavored ROM, and seeing as they were able to boot a device recently under Android 5.0, it shouldn’t take long.

Paranoid Android is Vsenn’s first approved ROM partner

You might have had some doubts about how legit this new Vsenn modular phone is, but this announce could perhaps put you at ease just a bit. Vseen is announcing the start of its "Approved ROM Partner" (ARP) program and the first ROM to be part of it is Android Open Source Paranoid Android or AOSPA, more popularly known simply as Paranoid Android. If all goes according to Vsenn's plan, this will be the ROM's first partnership with an OEM, though it doesn't actually mean it will ship on it by default.

Paranoid Android 4.6 Beta 4: Quick Settings, new wallpaper

Due to some technical difficulties, Paranoid Android had to delay the fourth beta of their 4.6 release series. Fret not PA fans, as that update is now upon us. For a slight change, this release doesn't focus on the Dynamic Status Bars, lovingly called DSB. Instead, it gives a bit of polish to the Quick Settings tiles feature. And as a bonus, Paranoid Android is introducing a new default wallpaper, one that has the project's AOSPA moniker clearly emblazoned for everyone to see and enjoy.
