How to Download and Install Official CM 14.1 on OnePlus 2

In this guide, you will be able to learn How to Download and Install Official CM 14.1 on OnePlus 2 (CyanogenMod 14.1 / Android 7.1 Nougat): The OnePlus 2 was released almost an year ago, and while it didn’t at all live up to its expectations, it was still considered to be a crowd favorite. Sporting the best specs in any phone at that time, the OnePlus 2 rocked a Snapdragon 810, 4 Gigabytes of RAM, Adreno 430, a great camera, and an amazing build. In spite of the crazy sepcs and the good build, it did manage to fall down way below under the price bracket of $400.

However, as we know, not every smartphone OEM is perfect. The field where OnePlus lags behind is its inconsistent and slow updates. It has already been months since Android Nougat has officially been announced, and even phones like the Moto G4 Plus have received their official updates, while the OnePlus 2 is still struggling hard to get its update. However, we have something that might interest you a lot.

 Very recently, Cyanogen announced the debut of their newest build of ROMs – CyanogenMod 14.1. CM 14.1 is built off of Android Nougat 7.1, which is even more newer than most of the official firmwares out there. Good for you, many devices have received the CM 14.1 official update, and the OnePlus 2 is one of them!
Since this is an official nightly build, you will be getting OTAs every single day, however, we cannot promise that this ROM is a 100% stable. Cyanogen has itself mentioned that many new features are yet to come, but for the most part, they have eliminated almost all the bugs, so this ROM should be pretty stable for a daily driver. In this in-depth guide, we will be learning  How to Download and Install Official CM 14.1 on OnePlus 2.
