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.
