The OnePlus One is only available to the general public via third-party dealers, the invitations are taking too long to get to the people who want the smartphone. There are some available through third-party dealers like Oppomart, but the version for sale requires the installation of CyanogenMod 11.0 which could put off many who aren’t sure of how to do it. To put your mind at rest however, here are the fairly simple instructions required to get your shiny new smartphone up and ready to go. If this reads like nonsense to you, there are plenty of helpful and knowledgeable people in forums who are happy to provide support and help to anyone in need of it.
