  1. I tried following these instructions – I am currently running Oxygen on my OnePlus One but got a message that there was incompatible data and an error executing updater binary. For folks going from Oxygen to CM 12.1, you need to do a factory reset so make sure to back up any desired data. Peace – Anthony

  2. I did everything you said bt tht zip file process fails
    But i still went ahead with the process

    I could see the android is upgrading msg
    But in the end it didnt upgrade

    Could you leave me your email so tht i can forward tht pic of the failing part…. So tht u could figure something out??

  3. You neglected to mention a very important point.
    Disable “Update Cyanogen Recovery” option in Developer Options before any upgrade, that way your TWRP or custom recovery stays intact.

    The flashing of the new ROM will most definitely fail if you forget to perform this very important step.

  4. I’ve tried dirty flashing this build and my phone stops working. Phone gets very hot, cant run any apps, no communications (sms, telephone, etc).
    Had to revert back to nandroid backup. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
