  4. Hi thanks for this awesome guide. I am currently on Grarark’s unofficial CM12 5.1 (xmas build) with TWRP 3.0.0-2 installed. Do the steps above also apply for my circumstances? Thanks in advance

  5. Hello again. I can’t boot in Grarak’s recovery (or any other recovery as I lost the 3.0.0.2 Official TWRP now). The phone is stuck at the 1+ screen. Any ideas please? Thanks again.

  6. hello sir i am using hydrogen os 1.4.0 in my 1+2 .my phone is not rooted . also i did not any modding with my phone.will i have to root my phone for this process

  7. I followed the all the instructions here on my Macbook pro (with the MAC OS X terminal you have to use ‘./fastboot’ instead of just ‘fastboot’, same for adb which is ‘./adb’ instead of ‘adb’ -Keep in mind you have to install the adb and fastboot stuff a bit differently on Macs-).

    But again. besides from that I followed ALL the instructions as are shown in here and it worked 100% right.

    Now I’m a happy Oneplus 2 owner with a brand new CM3 Official ROM.

    Thank you.

  14. On oxygen OS 3.0.2 there is a fingerprint issue where the fingerprint was detecting the pant fabric also as a fingerprint . It will fail obviously but as a result it caused a lot of battery draining and heating up issues. Does this problem persist in cm 13 also? Or has it been taken care of?

  15. I am on cm13 and its greats.Thanks for the great tutorial.But there is no face recognition option? Has it been deleted from the cm 13?
