OnePlus One owners can now experience Android 8.0 Oreo, the latest Google mobile OS on their device by installing the unofficial Android 8.0 Oreo AOSP ROM. Though this custom ROM is in its early developing stage, most things are working fine. The working list includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, RIL, audio and video playback, NFC, sensors and more. If you are interested, here is how to install Android 8.0 Oreo custom ROM on the OnePlus One.
OnePlus One was one of the most developer friendly devices and we have already seen many custom ROMs for the phone. And now, the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) based Android 8.0 Oreo will bring a new experience to OnePlus One owners. Check out the guide for installing it on your device.
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.
