Installing Oxygen OS on OnePlus One

The official OnePlus One does not show how to install OxygenOS on OnePlus One using Linux OS. So here is a summary on how to do it which take 15 mn.

I believe you know what you are doing. Your data will be wiped out completely, so prepare a backup before doing any thing from this tutorial.

Download required files as indicated here with instruction of Mac OS and

Install Android development tools (android adb and fastboot):

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot

Extract and cd into it

  cd OPO2.1.4_Patch_Mac/  

Check Device Status:

  sudo fastboot devices

Unlock Bootloader:

  sudo fastboot oem unlock

Flash Oxygen Recovery and appsboot patch

  sudo fastboot flash recovery sys/recovery.img
  sudo fastboot flash aboot sys/emmc_appsboot.mbn

Boot into Recovery

  sudo fastboot boot sys/recovery.img

If the system don’t go to recovery turn it of and press power+volumen down button again.

Then you can either follow the Mac instructions items from 11 or Wipe the cache and data and use USB install from the recovery, then you have to run this command of course with your phone connected via usb to your laptop/pc:

  sudo adb sideload ../

Just wait until the install is done and then reboot the phone. You have now successfully installed OxygenOS on your phone.
