OnePlus One launched in India with great expectations and reached them, but with some problems. It faced ban in India, as raised by Micromax for using the Cyanogen Operating System. There was a deal between Micromax and Cyanogen which gives Micromax exclusive rights of Cyanogen OS. It created trouble for OnePlus because its smartphone runs on Cyanogen.

But, now OnePlus One is free from ban and it has come up with its own software by name Android Lollipop Alpha and it is the custom ROM based on Android. OnePlus One has the total control on this. It is still in the first stage of development. Official website of OnePlus One has provided the link to download ROM, but there are some bugs in it. Once ROM become stable, it will be available for download and can be used by everyone. Android Lollipop Alpha is not dependent on Cyanogen in any way.
