OnePlus One has a nice little surprise in store for its customers today, provided you’re willing to deal with alpha software and can handle a bit of tweaking. The firm announced Wednesday that customers can now download and install an alpha version of Android 5.0 Lollipop to their OnePlus One phones.
The company said it’s trying to stick to the AOSP Lollipop build as much as possible, so don’t expect any enhancements or even CyanogenMod for that matter. That’s good news for Android purists out there, however, as much we love what Cyanogen has to offer.
OnePlus says you should proceed with “extreme caution” and backup your phone first, so if you don’t want to live with a brick, make sure you follow the steps. We’ll let them take it from here, hit the source for instructions and the .zip file you’ll need to get started.
