UPDATE: It seems that Oppo have updated their information on this, letting everyone know where it was ported from. We appreciate that, though working directly with Omni to go about porting ColorOS to KK would have been a good opportunity and something that would actually have most everything, if not all, working out of the box.
As one of the leads on the +OmniROM community, I am responding to the recent revelations on the Oppo Find 5 Color OS 2.0.0i ALPHA release:http://www.oppoforums.com/threads/find5-coloros-v2-0-0i-alpha-kitkat-based.23117/OMNI had nothing to do with this.
Whoever "developed" this, all they did was hack up an OmniROM nightly from 8 Oct 2014 by editing the build.prop to have "ColorOS 1.0" in there, instead of "ColorOS 2.0.0i". It was even built on OUR build servers for the Find 5. These "developers" couldn't even build it from source themselves.
Couple that with the fact that there are many things not working, which DO work in OmniROM for the Find 5, and the fact that these "developers" then went and put in Google Apps and Oppo is distributing this, all lead to a very interesting move by Oppo.
If the poll on that thread is any indication, people are not happy with what +OPPO
has done here. The community calls what happened here a "kang" (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=kanged&defid=5561021
) which means someone took someone else's work and rebranded it as their own. It's also classified by the community as a "WinZip ROM" which means that they opened a ZIP package, edited certain things, and then re-zipped it back up. The fact that Oppo then pushes this as some sort of official work is very disappointing.
Omni would have been happy to work with Oppo to do this officially, and correctly mind you, and they would have received all sorts of positive responses from the community. But instead, this is a very troubling step that I have confidence +OPPO
will look at and reevaluate their decision to release this, and instead re-engage with the community to continue to support this fantastic device.
