ColorOS-3.0 LOGO

ColorOS 3.0 Globalized Beta ROM for Yureka and Yureka Plus [Fully Englishized] [Latest][Android Lollipop 5.1.1][ARM64][PORT]

OPPO’s ColorOS is an awesome custom Android OS forked from AOSP. This ROM is specially developed for OPPO devices and comes with many handy features which make OPPO smartphones stand out. This colorful OS comes with plenty of customization capabilities with its own online theme store. Custom touchscreen gesture is another promising feature. Nicely quoted in the official site:

“ColorOS is an OS that combines speed, efficiency and stability to bring pixels to life.”

After my MIUI 7 Global and China Developer ROM, here comes my ColorOS 3.0 Beta [Globalized] ROM for Yureka and Yureka Plus.

Color OS 3.0 (V3.0.0_160527_Beta) Globalized ROM is based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and comes with many new features. Since this is Globalized Edition so there are no Chinese apps and is multilingual.

NOTE: This ColorOS ROM is not an official release for ColorOS Team/OPPO. It is just a ported ROM from OPPO R7 Plus, so don’t expect zero bug.

This ROM is based on ARM64 firmware so your device needs to be upgraded to 64 bit firmware. [Yureka/Yureka+ Cyanogen OS users can upgrade to 64 bit firmware by flashing Cyanogen OS Lollipop OTA update.]

Disclaimer: This ROM has been tested and verified to be stable for daily use but there may be some unknown bugs. The development team is not responsible for any damage to your device or your information.

Screen-on Gestures: You can also use gestures for different tasks like taking screenshot, single-handed mode etc. when your phone’s screen is turned on.

Outstanding Camera: ColorOS Camera Software is the best camera software available for any android device. It is very much fine tuned to provide the best balance between quality, detail, sharpness and colors and thus provide best in type results. All thanks to OPPO’s Pure Image 3.0+ technology.

Apart from this, it also comes with many camera modes and plugins to improve your photography experience—Voice Shot, Ultra HD, Beautify, HDR, GIF,  RAW, Double Exposure and more.

So this is really a superb camera software to compliment YUREKA Plus’s superb camera hardware.

Bugs and Workarounds

First I have to tell you that the ROM has no major bug and is very much stable.
  • Torch icon in notification drawer is not working. So, please use the Flashlight app provided for torch. ;)
  • You may feel little lag at the beginning. But it will go after using few hours as the OS gets settled. You can also use custom kernels for better performance.
  • If you are facing slow charging issue then change kernel. But default kernel more stable.
  • ColorOS screen-off gestures not working except double-tap-to-wake. But you can use @Vishal Gohel’s GeXture App available on Google Play for more screen-off gestures.
  • Some ColorOS Camera plugins not working (like panorama etc.) due to different camera sensor in Yureka.
  • If you find your background apps are auto-killed then got to Settings >> Battery >> "Your" App >> Disable 'Freeze background apps' and 'Auto optimize...' done.
  • More bugs found?! Then please notify me.
I am working (in my free time obviously) to fix these bugs. So it may take time and please don’t repeat the bugs already mentioned here. But if you have any fix for these bugs or found any other bug, then your suggestions are very much invited.

Fix for Titanium Backup
  1. Install Busybox 42
  2. Disable 'Mount namespace separation' in SuperSU
  3. Reboot
  4. Then Titanium Backup Will work.:)
Special thanks to @blackarrow for this method.:)

Some Tips

  • The ROM may lag at the beginning since ColorOS requires some time to settle. So please give some time to it.
  • To get outstanding battery backup in standby mode, turn off wifi, data and gps.
  • You can use other custom kernels if you are not satisfied with the default kernel. One tested kernel is Velocity Kernel v. 10.2 or below (because later versions are creating problems with camera)
