New CM11S 30O update for OnePlus One rolls out

Owners of the highly-acclaimed OnePlus One smartphone can expect a new version of their CyanogenMod 11 Android OS to roll out starting today, as OnePlus has announced that the new update has rolled out via OTA. This latest update brings the Android 4.4.4 KitKat to the One, including tweaks, fixes and updated apps and features – including a new camera feature called “Clear Image”.

OnePlus rumored to ditch CM, OneWatch plans leaked

It is only normal for OEMs to try to differentiate themselves in a very crowded mobile device market, but sometimes not all their "exclusive features" are well received (hello Samsung). OnePlus, a young Chinese startup when compared with other players in the industry, is rumored to be preparing to stir things up a bit again, not only by launching a smartwatch of its one, but also by moving away from its current CyanogenMod-based ROM.

OnePlus One gets its own Stock Android ROM

OnePlus promised to be different and, to some extent, they are. That desire to be unique and to never settle shows up once again today as OnePlus revealed a gift for lovers of a 100 percent, pure, vanilla Android experience: A stock Android ROM just for the OnePlus One, complete with a gapps download, and instructions for flashing, all without voiding your warranty.

OnePlus unleashes an even bigger Blizzard of Invites

After a storm, what do you get? Well, apparently for OnePlus, a blizzard. Since it just announced the availability of Bamboo StyleSwap covers for their first and only smartphone, it is only reasonable that they are now trying to reel in more buyers. This time around, they have doubled the stakes, offering invites to buy the OnePlus One to 5,000 lucky people.

OnePlus One Bamboo cover is here and out of stock

Right on the dot, OnePlus has revealed the availability of the first "textured" StyleSwap cover for the still elusive OnePlus One smartphone. Of course, that depends on how you define "availability", as this unique wooden cover is currently marked as out of stock, making it pretty much like the smartphone itself: unavailable.

OnePlus teases with ‘promised’ wooden StyleSwap covers

The OnePlus One smartphone might probably reach “urban legend” status because of the one issue that prospective buyers have against it – availability. Regardless of that, the outfit that put out the first retail CyanogenMod smartphone is still pushing with its "promised" textured back covers for the very “rare” smartphone, the company tweeting about "knocking on wood" and referencing to a July 22nd date.

OnePlus talks production capacity and yellowish hues

OnePlus have recently taken to their official user forums to discuss a few issues. This time around we are seeing an update on production capacity, and also the reports of the yellowish hue on some displays. Beginning with the production capacity and we find OnePlus making it clear they are not intentionally holding back any stock.

The latest iFixit smartphone teardown has been shared. The OnePlus One was the subject this time around and we are seeing a device that was given a repairability score of 5 out of 10 and described as having a "fairly modular" design. The modular design is said to "allow for less expensive replacement parts" however going back to that 5 (out of 10) score and it doesn't look like many will be doing home repairs.
