The rom is fully in English?? (if it's fully in English it will do the job) or is part English part Chinese? As for gapps, all gapps versions doesn't work? (open gapps, and all other.)

Would be awesome if it's fully translated into English, I understand you are not the developer, but how much is really not translated? Is it just a couple of lines or all of it?

Nothing much problem with the Chinese, its only their app store and theme store in chinese so if u install play store you can still use it.

Google Play

For those who having issues installing Google Play, check this link, it will work:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2547054
Next the steps above, just install the Google Play Store APK.

edit:
I installed google play with sucess, but having problems to downloads apps in the store Message error: cannot download. Help?

edit 2:
After install all Gapps in the world and nothing works, just install Google Installer and everything works. Just follow this thread:

I use this ROM as a daily driver for a month now and I LOVE IT. I did struggle to get GAPPS to work (i used Google installer as well) but since then is great. There are some chinese apps but I disabled notification for them and don't bother me. the ROM is 98% English. Give it a go it's really fast and beautiful.

Working well after cleaning cache.. Anyway thanks for your response... The rom is good but missing some features like live weather and oppo music player with record player style..
Hope to see more developments in future.. Anyway Rom is excellent

    Hi Guys,

    Hope you guys are fine. As you guys know the development for our beloved OnePlus X is increasing day by day; thought I might share what I found in one of Opo Chinese forum with the permission of the Dev who developed this rom.

    I've provided the description simple as much as possible using google translate(God Damn it!!)

    ColorOS 2.1
    Color is everything to us. It shapes us, molds us, and makes us who we are. ColorOS was designed to bring that same sense of excitement and warmth to the smartphone world. An OS that combines speed, efficiency and stability to bring pixels to life.​

    My personal Guessing how this rom was developed:
    As you might know the Oppo A30 device is a direct clone of our OnePlus X. So, it appears the Dev has used the same sources to compile the Rom for our onyx


    New Build :D Check here for download link and changelogs

    Features:
    1. Color OS v2.1 based on Android 5.1.1(LP)
    2. Stable and smooth Experience(Trust me, you'll love the smoothness ;) )
    3. Support the Three-Stage Switch, Black Gesture
    4. Many features, you can feel it on your own experience


    Flashing Procedure:
    • If you don't know what is this, then please stay away. Rest of them can continue further.
    • Unlock Bootloader (you might think this is a lame one)
    • Flash Twrp recovery or similar
    • Download and copy rom on phone
    • Go into recovery (phone off, press power button + Volume up until some seconds from vibration, then release only power button for 2 seconds and release also volume button)
    • Do a nandroid backup (don't blame me if you mess up something at the end)
    • Do all wipes (except internal memory and ext SD, Wipe section)
    • Tap Install voice
    • Select the rom
    • Swype to flash
    • Reboot

    Getting Root:
    • Couldn't get the attachments from the original post so tried flashing SUv2.52 and voila, I got root access. You can check the Screenshot for confirmation
    • If you don't have time for google, you can download SU from here or here which I used.

    Bugs:
    • Everything should be working fine as I couldn't find any bug listed in the original post :D
      [*]Not really a bug, couldn't get Google service to work on this, something you might want to think if you plan to use this as your daily driver
    • Still many part of the rom is in chinese, hopefully the Dev can bring a global variant of the OS to our device.

    Getting Google Play Services to work

    First download this Google installer file from here. Once you install the downloaded app you'll be getting a startup like the below image:

    Press the Blue Button. You will now be provided with a screen like below:

    Please make sure you're connected to your wifi or mobile data. You'll now be prompted to accept the installation like given below:

    AqLNvG1.png


    Once you've accepted all the installations, you'll now be able to add your google account and you'll be having the Playstore. Once you've setup your google account you can use the play store to download all your favorite google apps ;) I guess this makes this rom a daily driver :D

    Feel free to show yours to the community.

    Note: Don't know why the model number shows as E1001, trust me this rom was flashed on a E1003 model so feel free to ignore the model number in the image.

    Just now I installed the ROM. Its very smooth. However there are no GAPPS pre installed on the UI
    I installed GAPPS for 5.1.1 through TWRP and the installation was successful. But after rebooting the device, I found no GAPPS installed on it. weird.
    Is there any solution for this?? Please let me know asap.

    Well, being honest I'm new here. I am a "Junior" member as shown, and I didn't know about how to post a query. So instead of being so ffing rude, just go and get a life and learn how to treat ppl nicely. Oh, to make you feel better, I actually am a noob here, so yeah :) and if you can't help, dont ruin the environment at least

    Bad Noob! Bad! Don't do that again. Big no no here. Your lucky cookie only said what he did. Many would have said worse. Especially with that long quote. Bad! :p
