Lewa OS （Chinese：乐蛙）, also called Music Frogs or жабка, is a third-party Android ROM produced by the Chinese company Lewa Technology. It mainly focuses on developing ROMs for 1000-renminbi (around US$126) phones . As of April 2013, they have more than 2 million users, and as of July 2012, they are among the Top 3 custom Android ROMs in China, together with MIUI and DianXin OS (also known as Tapas OS). Lewa is also the first-ever custom Android ROM in the world that supports dual-SIM standby feature. The ROM includes its own Lewa market, a power save mode, adjustable switches in notification bar, and some other modifications that are “optimized and localized” for Chinese users. It releases a new version via OTA update once a week every Friday. Other than models that are officially supported, phones can also use Lewa by using ROMs that are ported by others or by users themselves. Some believe that it provides a user experience and design that’s similar or better than iOS or MIUI, some commentators also point out that the ROM is simple and energy-saving.
Anyway, Lewa OS is now available for the OnePlus One courtesy of Chinese Lewa developer wuxianlin.
This ROM is based on the latest CM11S stable ROM and it includes the CM11S camera, gallery and all the gestures. It should be fast, fluid and bug free, but don’t forget it’s still a BETA release.

OnePlus is only available in the following countries and areas for now:
- United States
- United Kingdom
- Hong Kong
The OnePlus One is a monolithic device; with its 5.5-inch screen, it’s firmly in the realm of what we once referred to as phablet devices (sadly the term is dying as more phones extend to larger displays). But it does at least manage to fit all that screen in a package that’s as slim as possible – the device is only around 0.35 inches thick.
It’s just a shade smaller than the Galaxy Note 3 in terms of overall footprint, but it more closely resembles the Nexus 5 in terms of its lines and the matte finish of the plastic back, which is somewhat rubberised for grip. As far as gargantuan devices go, the OnePlus One is among my favourite to hold, however, and the Nexus styling is visually appealing, too, as is the slightly protruding top and bottom metal-look lip. It manages to be one of the best looking Android phones recently launched, even if the look is a bit derivative.
Amazing Photos in Every Setting
13 MEGAPIXEL SONY EXMOR IMX214
The 13 megapixel camera on the OnePlus One excels thanks to quality optics, sensors and algorithms.
Many of us rely on our phones for taking all our photos, so we incorporated a camera that delivers astounding results. With dual LED flash, the OnePlus One’s camera will take photos you’ll want to share, day or night.
5 MEGAPIXEL FRONT FACING CAMERA
With an impressive 5 megapixel camera adorning the front of the OnePlus One, selfies will be more captivating than ever. The extra-wide 80º viewing angle captures more area than other phones so your pictures will include more background without distortion.
Boasting a 13 megapixel Sony Exmor IMX214 camera with f/2.0 aperture, the OnePlus One camera takes amazing pictures even in low light conditions. Shoot any time, anywhere for bright, sharp photos.
Our camera boasts 6 physical lenses. Your photos will be more precise and detailed without suffering from distortion often caused by lower apertures.
The OnePlus One’s 5.5 inch screen is a touch on the large size. It’s verging on phablet territory and we can’t help but think that as OnePlus’s only phone it could have reached a larger market by being a little smaller.
Still, for some people it will be the ideal size and there’s no arguing with its quality. It’s a 1080 x 1920 IPS LCD display with a pixel density of 401 pixels per inch, putting it right up there with other flagships. Colours aren’t as rich as they could be but the screen is clear and sharp.
CAPTURE THE MOMENT
CAMERA AND GALLERY
From snap to share, CyanogenMod makes life-logging fun. Record your world in a different hue with the camera’s live filters. Gallery automatically organizes your local and cloud-stored memories so you can relive them all in one place.
Loud And Clear
VOICE RECOGNITION & NOISE CANCELLATION
Stereo recording and tri-microphone noise cancelling technology are incorporated directly into the OnePlus One. Three microphones work together to identify, isolate and enhance your voice, while simultaneously filtering background noise. Use of the third microphone increases voice clarity by up to 80%.
GLOBAL 4G LTE
Enjoy blazing fast and smooth connectivity whether you’re around the corner or across the world with OnePlus One powered by a 4G LTE multimode modem. Unlocked and contract-free, roam wherever you’d like the One by your side.
QUALCOMM© SNAPDRAGON™ 801 PROCESSOR
Packing a Qualcomm© Snapdragon™ 801 processor with 2.5GHz Quad-Core CPUs, the OnePlus One’s operational capacity and performance are enhanced by Qualcomm’s heterogeneous computing approach.
This chipset harnesses the robust integration of many components for incredible speed and power efficiency. Among them, the custom Krait CPU architecture for sustained peak performance, integrated 4G LTE connectivity and Adreno 330 GPU for superior graphics and gaming experience, boosting 3D interfaces, colours and textures.
BEST IN CLASS MEMORY
Using the new standard EMMC 5.0 you’ll be able to access and write on our 16GB or 64GB of internal flash memory in the blink of an eye (up to 400MB/s). 3GB of LP-DDR3 RAM running at 1866MHz allows flawless multitasking of even the most demanding apps.
PROTECT YOUR DATA
SECURE MESSAGING AND PRIVACY GUARD
Your data is who you are, so CyanogenMod helps protect it. Speak freely knowing your text messages are encrypted seamlessly as you send them.* Privacy Guard keeps nosey apps at bay by helping you manage their access to your information and device capabilities.
work your own way
Powered by Android™, CyanogenMod brings the features you love while giving you the freedom to mould your mobile domain. Options like Quiet Hours, an enhanced home screen, and a configurable Quick Settings panel are just a few ways you can control how you and your One connect.
Your One works the way you do, but it should also dress the part. Personalize it by picking from thousands of themes or mix and match icons, fonts, wallpapers, and more to create your perfect look.
‘Never Settle’ is about understanding our users’ root problems and making the best product decisions to solve them. It’s not about tipping the scale towards one extreme end, but rather finding how to create the best day to day experience.
INSIDE AND OUT
We take pride in every detail of our product, even parts that are never seen. The OnePlus One was a labour of love, both ours and our users, and we honoured that by letting no detail go unnoticed. When you hold your OnePlus One, you’ll know every single piece was carefully chosen, placed and designed. Our custom cut and engineered PCB boards are specially dyed and treated with a matte black finish, with each part meticulously aligned to be visually pleasing and functional. Even the most delicate inner components bear a OnePlus logo. Each piece is uniquely ours, and comes together to make a truly eye-catching device, inside and out.
Designed To Last
ALL DAY POWER EFFICIENCY
Shipping with the energy efficient Qualcomm© Snapdragon™ 801 chipset, the One’s 3100 mAh battery fits perfectly into the sleek body. The energy efficient display features CABC and DRAM (Display RAM) technology that adjust the level of backlight and differentiate between dynamic and static content on your screen. These technologies reduce the power consumed and allow you to run all your apps and data services, all day long.
The phone comes with a choice of 16 or 64GB of storage. Unfortunately there’s no microSD card slot but if you opt for the 64GB model that shouldn’t be a problem.
It supports Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.1 and NFC, so all it’s really lacking is infrared.
One important thing to note in Europe is that the OnePlus One lacks support for LTE Band 200 (800MHz), which means it won’t be able to connect to O2 or Vodafone 4G, and it’ll also limit 4G availability and speeds on Three (band 20).

Feel free to comment so we can truly find out more about owning the OnePlus One.
If you have bitten the bullet and decided to buy the Chinese version of the OnePlus One, your next step will likely to remove ColorOS and flash CM11s on the phone here is how.
As we have pointed out in the past, one of the major differences between the Chinese and International OnePlus One phones is the operating system. The Chinese OPO ships with Oppo’s ColorOS based on Android 4.3, while the global version ships with CyanogenMod 11s based on Android 4.4.2.
ColorOS is the same system that ships on the Oppo Find 7, and has some great features. I, and others, would even go so far to say ColorOS has more in the way of features when compared to CM11S (check out the links above), but as it’s a Chinese ROM it only supports Chinese and English and doesn’t have Google services installed which means a ROOT.
Download CM11S for the Chinese OnePlus One
Once you have decided you want the full OnePlus experience on your OPO and want to flash to CM11S you are going to want to download a CyanogenMod 11S factory image.
Being open source you can download the CM11S factory images directly from the CyanogenMod website. These CM11S factory images include Google Services. There are 3 to choose from, for this how to I used the first ROM option: cm-11.0-XNPH22R-bacon-signed.zip Once download you can begin with the flashing process.
How to flash CM11s on to your Chinese OnePlus One
Although this process is very simple there is the risk of bricking your device. If you are not 100% happy doing this yourself then turn back now. We won’t be held responsible for damaged caused to your device.
Before you begin we also suggest you make a back up of anything you want to keep from your phone. Follow these steps to flash CyanogenMod 11S to the Chinese OnePlus One;
- Move the CM11S ROM you downloaded above to the ROOT of your phone. In this case I have named the file ‘update.zip’.
- Turn off your OnePlus One
- When the power is off hold the Power button and Volume down (volume -) buttons together.
- Enter recovery mode.
- Choose ‘English’.
- Wipe data and cache (backup anything you don’t want to loose) and choose ‘Yes’.
- Once the cache is cleared go back to the recovery page and choose ‘Install from SD’
- Choose the cm-11.0-XNPH22R-bacon-signed.zip file and install, and ‘Yes’ to install.
- The OPO should now start to update to CyanogenMod 11s.
- Once installed the OPO should reboot showing the Cyanogen logo and ‘Powered by Android’
- You are now running CyanogenMod 11S Congratulations!
The whole process should only take a few minutes and is much simple than the number of steps might suggest. Now that you have CM11S on your OnePlus One you can log in to your Google account and enjoy all the same features as the Global version of the OnePlus One.
I hope you found this how to useful. Let me know if you decide to follow it and install CM11S on your Chinese OnePlus One. Also, let us know if you have any tips or alternative methods.
If you have an Android device and want some of the applications that are preloaded on CyanogenMod ROMs, then we’ve got an app for you. CMApps takes the hassle from rooting and allows you to have some of the popular CyanogenMod apps on your phone. With this application, you don’t need to worry about unlocking, rooting or ROMing your device. You simply download the CMApps application from the Google Play Store and gain access to some of the apps preloaded on CyanogenMod ROMs.
The applications that come with this app are Apollo (a music player), Camera Next, Clock Widget, DSP Manager, File Manager, Sound Recorder, Calculator, Torch, Trebuchet (the launcher that CyanogenMod uses by default) and Wallpapers. The app is available on the Google Play Store for free. It will only run on Android devices running 4.2 and newer, so realize that it might not work on all of your devices. The app basically works as an installer. You can pick and choose the apps that you’d like to install. Keep in mind that if you want to install the Camera app, you need to be running on Android KitKat 4.4.
If you’re interested in grabbing CMApps, head on over to the Play Store now.
