OnePlus 2 users are eagerly waiting for the stunning stock Oxygen OS Nougat firmware update since the beginning of this year. Recently, the Chinese manufacturer released the Oxygen OS 3.5.8 for the same, which is still based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The update is quite stable and fixes a lot of issues like Network drop, WiFi, etc. While OnePlus 2 users can expect the Nougat updates anytime soon, here is a stock H2OS ROM build based on Android v7.1.1 Nougat. This H2OS 2.5 ROM listed below is actually a custom ROM with a framework of the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update. So the UX and apps have been ported to give you the feel of Nougat. That means you will need to flash the ROM via a custom TWRP recovery.
The H2OS is an alternative ROM for the OnePlus devices and comes as stock firmware for the Chinese variants on OnePlus 3/3T, 2, and X. Moreover, the OnePlus development team has already released Android 7.1.1 Nougat based on H2OS Beta and Oxygen OS 4.0.1 for OnePlus 3 and 3T. Nougat ROM listed below brings many new features like UX port, apps port, etc. However, the primary language is set to Chinese by default, but it can be changed to English one from Settings>Language & Input option. Check out the screenshots from below.
