After more than a few delays and a teaser earlier this week, Cyanogen has finally begun pushing out the update to the Lollipop-based Cyanogen 12 OS.

Cyanogen 12 (based on Android 5.0) will be rolling out to all OnePlus One devices, including devices sold in India, where there was some confusion due to the conflict between Cyanogen and OnePlus. The update will roll out to the Yu Yureka “very soon” according to a blog post on the Cyanogen blog. Yet to be available in stores, the Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2+ will ship with Cyanogen 11, with an update to C12 at a later stage.

Cyanogen 12 brings the Material Design cues and new features of Lollipop, as well as several original pieces of functionality, including the revamped theming feature and the new Boxer-based Email app. In terms of theming, the biggest addition is the possibility to theme individual apps with App Themer. The new Email app offers Boxer’s premium tier features, including Exchange support, multiple accounts, canned responses, and many customization options.

Cyanogen 12 will be landing as an OTA for all OnePlus One users over the coming hours and days. For the impatient, the OTA file is available here with more mirrors here, though you will need to be on the latest version of Cyanogen 11 (11S 05Q).
