For those of you who are still waiting for your OnePlus One invite, let me tell you that you can actually fully convert your existing Android smartphone into a OnePlus One by installing latest CM11 ROM along with the HighOnAndroid OnePlus One Conversion Kit.
This will give you 99% of the software features on the OnePlus One including the Hexo theme (default theme on OnePlus One), camera, AudioFX app (works 100%), Screencast (screen recording app), Privacy Guard, and WhisperPush. (See video overview for demo) The only thing that does not work is the screen-off gesture shortcuts but I think that’s minor issue.
I did convert most of my smartphones including my HTC One, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, Note 3, Note 2, Nexus 5, Nexus 4, Galaxy Nexus, and Nexus S. They are working pretty flawless at the moment so this is a great way to alleviate your pain of waiting for an invite and try out OnePlus One software feature “today”. (Also works on Android tablets like Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Note 10.1, etc…etc…)
This will work on any rooted Android smartphone with CWM (ClockworkMod) or TWRP recovery installed. (Also works on tablet too, make a OnePlus One tablet!)
If you have a rooted Android smartphone with latest CWM or TWRP recovery installed, skip to Step 3!
V1.2 August 14th 2014 – Version 1.2 now updated with latest OnePlus One camera. Also there’s a separate version without OnePlus One lockscreen for those of you who have trouble with the lockscreen. (For Nexus 10 users, grab the No Lockscreen version as lockscreen does not work correctly!)
V1.1 August 13th 2014 – Version 1.1 is OUT! If you don’t see extra menus for resizing your grid size, you probably using Google Now launcher. To get full OnePlus One launcher, you need to use Trebuchet launcher, it may be missing on some CM11 builds I found out. So, I added Trebuchet launcher. If you don’t have Trebuchet launcher, you can simply update with the latest version 1.1 to get it.
