The One Plus One got into controversy when Micromax entered into an agreement with Cyanogen Inc. under which the home-grown manufacturer gained the exclusive rights to manufacture and sell Cyanogen OS based smartphones in India. As a result of agreement, One Plus One was banned from providing Cyanogen OS updates, due to which Indian users were deprived of latest OS update.
While global users got OTA updates from Cyanogen itself, users in India had to wait for the One Plus developer team to come up with their own build for an update. In the mean time, One Plus launched its own Oxygen OS ROM.
