Great post +Mark Stronge
 
I installed Cyanogen OS 12.1 on my +OnePlus​ One last night after having been on the CM12.1 nightlies. Immediate 50% improvement on screen on time up to 6 hours now. Zero bugs to report.

https://cyngn.com/blog/cyanogen-os-12-1-dialed-in-turned-up

To install, download full zip.

http://builds.cyngn.com/cyanogen-os/bacon/12.1-YOG4PAS1N0-bacon/7be76f9310/cm-12.1-YOG4PAS1N0-bacon-signed.zip

If you are using TWRP recovery, you must flash the FULL zip and ensure that it is version 2.8.6.0

Factory reset is highly recommended as all reported issues have been from dirty flashers :-)
So, in TWRP, wipe, then swipe to factory reset, the option says it doesn't touch internal USB storage.

Go to install, select your download folder, tap on the zip and swipe to install.

Reboot.

During setup, skip Cyanogen login and don't use trucaller and turn on all location services, even when Cyanogen purposefully lies to you and says that you had turned off that option in a previous version. Yes, they lie to you.

Now allow all your apps to install.

Uninstall...
Browser
Email
Trucaller
Gallery (if you want)

Go into settings, accounts, Google and turn on googly contact sync (Cyanogen really don't want you to use it) and calendar and all the ones that are turned off.

Go into Settings, Security, Device Administration and disable Cyanogen remote wipe.

After all your apps are installed, go and install the Google now launcher and Google Camera manually. Cyanogen don't like you installing them automatically (I had them on previous installation but for some mysterious reason they didn't come back automatically).

Now you will notice that the cyanogen dialer is rubbish, the starred contacts are tiny and it doesn't use the Google Caller ID. To fix that you can install the Google phone app.

https://forums.oneplus.net/threads/how-to-get-lollipop-dialer-back.350285/

Need to do that in TWRP, and add root before you reboot.

Now use ES File Explorer and go to system/priv-app and delete the Cyanogen contact and dialer app so you don't have duplicates.

Done. This took me about ½ hour, all told.

Ha, not sure how much revenue this will actually raise. I would have thought it's more to do with making the building more open and accessible.

For Estate users there really is no place to go for a bite to eat or for a drink. DFP should really build a coffee shop.

I've only had the Oneplus One for a week or so but I'm fairly impressed with the camera. I'm still learning how to get the best and most consistent results. I have a few camera apps including Camera FV-5, A Better Camera and the Google Camera.

A few pics from a recent trip to Castlerock/Port Stewart/Mussenden.

It was my first time at Harry's Shack and I was underwhelmed. I'd heard so many good things about it as well. Ah well, could have been worse!

Anyway, a wee trip up the north Coast is always worth it.
Where should I visit next?

Pretty awesome.
Around 1:30AM, we awoke to the rumbling of the ground and the sound of a breath-stealing explosion.
