In seguito alle lamentele degli utenti, Oppo ha deciso di portare KitKat su Find 5 e questa sarebbe una prima release Alpha:
“We are later than expected, but here it is for all those who stuck by us! ColorOS 2.0 for our Find 5 users! A big thanks to everyone who never lost faith, and never forget we’re always working on keeping all our devices up to date! http://bit.ly/Find5_ColorOS #ColorOS”
Nell’annuncio è stato riportato anche il link diretto al forum di Oppo nel quale è possibile trovare la ROM da installare su Find 5. L’unica stranezza è che questa ROM sarebbe un miscuglio di altri celebri lavori come OmniROM però non citate dal produttore cinese:
- This ROM is actually a ported ROM developed by the external developers, but not an official Rom developed by OPPO team. And this ROM is developed based on Omni. Due to the conflict between limited engineer resources in the company and more and more users’ request for updated firmware versions based on Kitkat for our old models such as Find5 and N1, we engaged external developers to make this Rom which is based on KitKat by the method of Patchrom, with the good intention to let users who are really keen to experience the KitKat update experience the new updated Find5 ColorOS 2.0 based on KitKat. It is my mistake that I did’t state clearly when releasing this Rom. I feel deeply sorry for that.
- About the NFC problem, I will communicate with the developers and try the best to fix it.
- About the GPL rules, firstly we are really sorry for not giving credit to Omni for using their kernel source and I’d like to thank Omni team for their kernel sources. Here is the link for the kernel source: https://github.com/omnirom/android_kernel_oppo_find5. I will also make this clear in the main post.
Chissà se questi problemi verranno risolti e se Oppo riuscirà ad accontentare seriamente i propri utenti.
