The OnePlus One already received an unofficial port of Android 7.0 Nougat

If you’re talking about a device which received amazing dev support before reaching its EOL, the OnePlus One (Bacon) simply is a part of that conversation. Officially the device has received Cyanogen OS, OxygenOS, Hydrogen OS, MIUI 7, Sailfish OS and even Ubuntu. As this device reached its EOL (end of life), it won’t officially receive Android 7.0 Nougat anymore.

And that’s only the official side of the development spectrum, the unofficial side of the spectrum includes hundreds of ports and ROMs built by enthusiasts on the forums out there.

And just a few days after Google pushed the source for Android 7.0 Nougat, a developer (updating, Senior Member at XDA) made a working port of it for the OnePlus One. He did state that this build is more to serve as a first taste of Android 7.0 Nougat rather than a replacement of your daily driver OS.

As there are no major bugs in this experimental build, you could actually use it as your daily driver OS. There are a few bugs present though like the broken hardware encoder which causes the camcorder to fail. As the firmware and proprietary blobs are coming from Marshmallow, you may encounter a few more issues than that we’ve mentioned here.

Where can I get my first taste of Android 7.0 Nougat?

Head over to the ROM thread here to get your taste of Nougat! As always, MTT isn’t responsible for anything that happens to your phone after flashing this.

So, are you going to flash this ROM to get your first taste of Nougat? Do let me know in the comments down below! Also, if you’ve got any questions, feel free to leave them in the comment section, I’m currently running this port and will try to answer any question you’ve got for me.
