It is Sarthak Narang an XDA senior member who brought this ROM to us and therefore we are invited to give this ROM a try on our OnePlus X device. So if you are interested and think this is your chance then come on flash it. And lucky you because the post you are reading now will guide you through the entire processes to flash the CM14 Android 7.0 Nougat ROM on your OnePlus X device.
And before you doing that then I would like you to learn about this ROM first. This ROM is based on AOSP therefore your device should already be in bootloader unlocked condition. Having this custom ROM installed will void your device's warranty and therefore hope you already notice about that.
- The CM14.1 ROM must be flashed only if you own the OnePlus X device.
- You need to have either CWM or TWRP recovery installed on your device, as for me I use the TWRP recovery, it's better user interface I guess.
- A computer and a USB cable are needed.
- Make sure you have enabled USB debugging mode of your OnePlus X because it's a requirement.
- If your device's battery power is less then charge it.
- You need to follow all the steps and don't skip any steps.
- Backup first before doing anything.
