The OnePlus One was first launched with Cyanogen OS 12 that came as a stock ROM for the device. Later an alternate ROM was released for it viz, Oxygen OS which is currently the primary firmware for all of the OnePlus devices. However, now, the CyanogenMod community, that basically releases the COS or CM 13 ROMS, has a bigs announcement. The source code for CM 12.1 based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop is being updated to the latest CM 13 and will be released on April 9th. This means that the OnePlus One is very likely to receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow update officially from the CyanogenMod community. The update won’t be coming for the Oxygen OS but instead for the Cyanogen OS 12.1 that the device currently holds. According to the OnePlus forums, the release will take OnePlus One to CM 13.0 ZNH0EAS26M over the Cyanogen OS 12.1.1 (5.1.1) named cm-12.1-YOG7DAS2K1.
The reference is a bit confusing as the stock ROM for the device is Cyanogen OS and the file naming system mentions it as CM 12.1. Of course, as it comes from the CyaongenMod development team, the file is named CM 13 and not COS 13. To further complicate matters, the linked CM 13 blog post is for the Snapshot releases, which have a build version of ZNH0EAO1QB, so it will either be a separate snapshot CyanogenMod 13 build or will be based on CyanogenOS 13. Anyway, the update is most likely to hit the devices tomorrow and we will get to know it when it’s released. However, you will receive it over the air only if you are on stock COS 12.1. Otherwise, you will have to revert back to CM 12.1 YOG7DAS2K1 and then update using stock recovery. Alternatively, you can grab the full firmware ROM and flash it with the TWRP recovery. We will be updating the file here in the post once the files are available. Meanwhile, you can check the official Cyanogen OS repository from the download section. Update: Links are now live for the Factory image and a new incremental OTA ZNH0EAS2JK is available. Check out the download section below and images from our Pinterest account.
