So just curious. Are any devs working on or thinking of working on a port of Lollipop for the Find 7a? Haven't seen any hints of it in all my searching

Thanks!

It's on the way.
You can be sure, that at least omni and cm team are working on it.
Omni already confirmed that.
I think you will have to wait around 3-4 weeks.

Really sad theres no news of official lollipop yet
Its really sad to see that oppo has such a good phone but the software development is far behind every one here. Flagships like s5 or htc one m8 are already on their way of getting official lollipop while these guys are still stuck with 4.4.4 betas.

Dirty unicorns are too I'm pretty sure.

And while Oppo isn't the quickest with their own software, they are the only manufacturer actively encouraging custom ROMs, actually helping us with rooting and lend a helping hand when accidentally bricking our phones instead like others that either don't care at all (best case) or laughingly flip us the bird and telling us the warranty is now void forever.

That's worth more to me. (and residing in Sweden usually means waiting months longer for updates than the rest of the world)

Custom ROMs have always been more fun than stock anyway. Android shouldn't be about being the best device out of the box, it should be like LEGOs, turning it into whatever you want it to be. Making it the best device for YOU

THIS!!
With all the hate in the Oppo forums, I honestly feel bad for Oppo. They encourage different ROM usage, and this is how they get treated? Ugh. I support Oppo with their different stance on Android!

Yeah, and they ARE trying to improve their process for stock firmwares too. The problem is - they're obviously understaffed and having trouble hiring people with experience to fix this. (Since they have no physical presence in the West, and that makes it hard to hire Western developers as many aren't willing to relocate.)

From my end, I'm just happy it's being worked on. I have nothing but good things at this point to say about OPPO. Cool company.

Very true, and they are the first Chinese smartphone manufacturer to really make a break for the international market. I'm sure there is quite a bit of hurdles that needs to be dealt with along the way.

In this day and age though, it would be fairly easy to arrange for some type of remote consulting work not requiring relocation.
I could think of a few developers on the spot that would be a tremendous gain for Oppo... *looking hintingly on Entropy512*
