      Yes, you should be able to, but OnePlus isn’t sure right now how CM plans to stop the updates for Indian users while still providing for global users as all OnePlus One phones (apart from those sold in China) are essentially the same. Until the specifics become clear, one can’t be 100 pc sure if you will be impacted, but ideally you should not.

    Finally its time to say good bye to my SGS II(I9100).
    After waiting for 3 years I have come across a smart phone which is high on specs and does not burn a hole in my pocket.*sniff* *sniff* Tears of joy.
    Now waiting for Mi4 to intensify the competition. 🙂
