Default [Q] yellow tint with CM,normal color with ColorOS?

As the title says,MY OPO is suffering from this.Flashed CM or any roms aosp/cm,I found my screen color is normal for the first seconds of booting,then the color of the screen turned to yellow.yeah,it's sooooo much yellow.even I configured in the display settings,it's no use.I flashed back to ColorOS.then the color turned normal,beautiful screen back.
so my question is why this happens,if it's intended to do like this,why?then do you guys have this problem?
regards.

It's by design in the CM ROM and a future update will allow the color to be adjusted. The warmer tone is technically more friendly for text viewing and skin tones, etc. but people don't tend to like it as they are used to a cold white. Properly calibrated displays are always warmer, however, because they tend to reflect a more natural light that mimics the sun.

I just posted the same question: http://forum.xda-developers.com/onep...white-t2801107 probably should be deleted, I didn't see this thread.

But, anyway.. is there any workaround for CM and other custom roms? This yellow screen is annoying, so annoying...

Franco kernel will have the necessary adjustments passed into userspace soon enough, just FYI.

From the man himself, "We already have color control interface in the Kernel by supercurio, I've asked him to expose the controls to userspace. Once that is available I'll add the code to the app."
