Chinese phone maker Oppo is the first company to release a phone that comes with CyanogenMod pre-loaded. The Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition is a limited edition phone that went on sale December 24th and which features the custom version of Gogole Android.
But Oppo also offers a version of the phone that comes with ColorOS, Oppo’s own custom version of Android. If you already have an Oppo N1 running ColorOS but you’d rather switch to CyanogenMod, now there’s a way to do that.
Oppo has released an official software update that lets you switch between operating systems. Just follow the steps at the Oppo Forums to download the firmware and use the System Update utility to replace ColorOS with CyanogenMod. You can also reverse the process by using the System Update tool to flash ColorOS.
The process isn’t all that different from the steps users have taken to install CyanogenMod on phones from Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG, and others in the past — but Oppo is the first company to offer official support for CyanogenMod. Installing the software shouldn’t void your warranty, and Oppo and CyanogenMod have worked together to make sure that the software fully supports the N1′s hardware.
That means the software supports the N1′s Bluetooth remote, rotating camera, and double-tap-to-wake, among other things.
