How To Update One Plus 3 To Android 7.0 Nougat

This is a good news to all users of One Plus 3 who wonder and yawn for a feel of the latest Android 7.0 Nougat in their phones, because, Cynogenmod just released a Nougat-based Custom Rom for the device. This Rom isn't the official Android 7.0 update for the flagship, but users can still go ahead and install the rom to their devices. All you need to do is to follow these simple procedures and you'll get it done without much stress. But before you can be able to flash the Cynogenmod Nougat based custom Rom to you device, there are basic requirements you are bound to meet, they are; 

First You need to make sure that your device is properly rooted.

  • A custom recovery like Twerp or CWM must be installed
  • Your battery level must not be less than 80%
  • At least 6GB internal  free memory space. 
  • Make a backup of your stock rom and keep it safe.

If you've completed the above steps, then you can proceed to the next steps, then:

==>> Download Banks Dynamic Gapps 7.0 Nougat from Here or Opengapps package from Here

==>> Download Taker18 7.0 Build for Here, or Daleski Builds (NON-ROOTED ONLY) from Here or flo071 Builds from Here

==>> After downloading all the files needed, reboot your device into Recovery mode by pres and holding the power and Volume down buttons simultaneously

==>> In the recovery mode, tap on Wipe and then wipe factory reset, Cache Cache partition and Dalvik cache.

==>> Then go back up to the twerp recovery main menu and tap on Install

==>> Navigate to the directory where you saved the CM14 ROM and then install.

==>> Exercise some patience for the wait for the installation process to and complete successfully. Then flash any of the G-Apps immediately after installing the rom by Going back to TWRP home, Select "Mount" Tap on System, then Go back Select Install then select any of the G-apps packages.

==>> Now, reboot your device. (Please, be advised that the first time boot after flashing a custom rom is usually longer, than regular boot times, so don't panic, rather exercise a little patience and allow the booting process to complete). 

What's working in this Rom Update:
Mobile Data
DPI Selector
NFC (Partially working, NO android Pay)
Installation of apps from Google PlayStore

Inability to changed the battery icons  (Can be modified in Settings>StatusBar>Status Bar Icons>Battery)

I am positive that all of most of this bugs will be issued out by the next 1 or 2 updates. All  credits to Taker18, daleski75 and flo071
