Great news for Oppo Find 7 or Find 7a owners, it’s time to perform a backup of your phone because Oppo has finally released ColorOS 2.0 based on Android 4.4 KitKat. The update is pretty big at 914MB and according to Oppo, no OTA will be available so you’ll need to do it manually – download the update and transfer it to your phone.
But be careful though, according to Oppo, the update will wipe user data so you must backup your data before updating. Data on phone storage such as movies and photos will not be affected, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry. ColorOS 2.0 has a new redefined UI design that looks, well, a lot flatter than before. On top of changes made to the interface, ColorOS 2.0 also has several new features too so check out Oppo’s forum for the full change log and for the download link to the file.
To update, make sure your phone has got sufficient battery of at least 30%. Download the update from Oppo, and copy it to the root directory of your phone storage. You will need to turn your phone off for this and perform a reset b pressing the power and volume down key at the same time until you see the Oppo logo appear. Select your preferred language, and perform a clean install by selecting “Wipe data and cache”. Then select “Install from SD”, select the firmware you’ve downloaded, and wait for it to complete. Check out Oppo for the full installation guideline.
