Developed by an XDA member Agent_fabulous, the Android 8.0 Oreo AOSP ROM for the OnePlus One is in its developing stage, which means it is not stable and may experience some unknown bugs. However, if you are ready to face few issues go ahead and install it on your device.

As always, the Android 8.0 Oreo AOSP ROM for OnePlus One does not include the Google Apps (Gapps), so you need to flash it separately after installing the ROM to get Google apps and services.

Note: Keep in mind that Android 8.0 Oreo AOSP ROM is currently an Alpha build, which means the ROM is not completely stable. Most features are not added yet but they are to come in later releases. Only install if you understand what it is!
