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.

POST: http://www.oppoforums.com/threads/find5-coloros-v2-0-0i-alpha-kitkat-based.23117/page-2#post-309566

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.

For those curious as to why deb/flo have been a bit...  funky in Omni lately:

https://code.google.com/p/gerrit/issues/detail?id=1072

In short, one of our Gerrit admins thought he'd given the deb/flo maintainer complete access to do everything he needed to do - but the above bug caused the permissions grant to not work as expected.

This combined with people being on holiday/vacation for various parts of the time slowed down the resolution.

Back to building my own builds. +OPPO Find7a is a beautiful device and now running Android 4.4.4. I would say we are close to nightly status.

Married with 3 kids, fun-loving, tech-junkie, musician, and overall Renaissance Man....  I think.... 

I thrive on being part of innovation, and am constantly seeking to grow in knowledge and understanding of how things work and of new technologies and how to interact with them in ways never before imagined. I enjoy working in environments that encourage free-thinking as well as one that is open to collaboration between different individuals to accomplish a common goal.
