The #OnePlus3 recently started receiving the Oxygen OS 3.2 update, but the company shortly halted the rollout citing certain issues. Well, #OnePlus hasn’t taken long to sort out those issues as the flagship is now seeing the update again. This is officially known as Oxygen OS 3.2.1, so those who received the 3.2 update are also eligible to receive it. This is understandable as the first update was riddled with a multitude of bugs.

It is said that the first update had issues like the display turning on by its own and subsequently causing battery drain, as well as notifications related trouble. All that will be fixed now and OnePlus is also bundling in the RAM management update along with the sRGB display mode, which was also part of the first update.

Naturally, the update is rolling out over-the-air, so make sure you check your device for a pending update. It’s likely that the company is sending out the update in stages to figure out any further errors, so don’t lose patience if you’re not seeing the update on your OnePlus 3 right away. But if you’ve already seen Oxygen OS 3.2.1 on your OnePlus 3, don’t hesitate to share your thoughts below.

OnePlus 3

#OnePlus started sending out the Oxygen OS 3.2 update for the #OnePlus3 starting yesterday. However, the company has now announced that the update rollout has been halted. OnePlus mentions that there were some “issues” reported while updating, although the company didn’t elaborate as to what those issues were.

The update brought along sRGB mode on the handset along with some RAM management related upgrades, which was the need of the hour for the OnePlus 3. However, with this newfound issue, the rollout might take slightly longer than expected. There’s no need for concern, though, as we’re sure the company is only taking this as a precautionary step.

Expect more word to follow from the company over the coming days. For now, users will just have to keep waiting for that elusive Oxygen OS 3.2 update. Have you already received the update on the OnePlus 3? Could you put a finger on what the issues are? If yes, make sure you drop off a comment below.

OnePlus 2

#OnePlus2 owners are eagerly awaiting the release of the #Android #Marshmallow update on their smartphone, but the wait somehow kept getting longer. But users can now get their hands on the public beta version of the Oxygen OS 3.0 ROM, which is based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The smartphone will see a bunch of new upgrades post the update, which the company has been kind enough to detail on its forum:

OnePlus 2 Android 6.0 update currently being soak tested

OnePlus 2 Marshmallow

The #OnePlus2 recently received the Oxygen OS 2.2.1 update, which introduced a few new features, but kept the device on Android 5.1 Lollipop. This begged the question – when will OnePlus start sending out Android 6.0 Marshmallow for the smartphone? Well, it seems like the day might not be far away with the company supposedly beginning the soak test of the update for devices in some regions.

This will, of course, be skinned with Oxygen OS (version 3.0), so OnePlus will still have its key features on board. There’s no ETA for the wider rollout of the update, but we’re guessing OnePlus will proceed with haste given all the flak it has received from the community and users for delaying its update multiple times now.

The screenshots available don’t outright confirm that this is indeed the Android 6.0 update, but we’re seeing some changes on board. There are new wallpapers on board and some changes made to the home screen as well.

OnePlus X getting the Oxygen OS 2.2.0 update now

OnePlus X

#OnePlusX owners should soon start seeing notifications for the Oxygen OS 2.2.0 update. This is a staged rollout, so only users in some regions might see it right away. For those unaware, the OnePlus X is the company’s newest and smallest flagship which comes with an impressive specs sheet for a price tag of just $249.

Here are the changes listed by the company for Oxygen OS 2.2.0 running OnePlus X:

  • Manual mode for Camera App
  • Save to SD card option in Camera App
  • USSD bug fix for India
  • Added dual SIM preferences back in system settings
  • OTA App upgrade
  • Security patches
  • General bug fixes and optimizations

Camera buffs will be excited with the addition of manual mode, while there are some much needed region specific updates/patches as well. If you’re still wondering, well, this doesn’t bring Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the handset. The company is expected to rollout the update to the OnePlus 2 and the OnePlus X over the coming weeks, although we don’t have a precise timeline at this point.

OnePlus 2 getting Oxygen OS 2.1 update

OnePlus 2

With the #OnePlus2, the company decided to ditch the controversial #Cyanogen OS and go with its own home grown Oxygen OS which features a relatively stock version of Android.

Well, users of the latest OnePlus flagship can now expect an update for the device in the form of Oxygen OS 2.1. The company has announced that only a small section of users will see the update today, with a wider rollout commencing tomorrow.

As for the changelog, it is said that the update brings RAW camera support and manual camera mode to the device, which are certainly welcome additions. Apart from this, it is also shown that the handset will see a color balance slider in the display settings, letting you adjust the color tone of the screen accordingly. Exchange support has been included with the update as well. The usual suite of bug fixes are in place.

You might not see the update right away, but don’t get disheartened as it is probably on its way.

OnePlus 2 will have Android 5.1 with new Oxygen OS

According to OnePlus, the company will bring out a new version of the Oxygen OS ROM, based on Android 5.1 later this year. This ROM will reportedly break cover with the OnePlus 2 flagship which means that users of the OnePlus One will also have to wait until then.

The company has also mentioned that they will start rolling out bug fixes for the nagging touchscreen issues on the OnePlus One, which is excellent news for the customers of the handset. The issue is observed on the CyanogenMod version of the OnePlus One as well as the Oxygen OS version, so it’s probably a hardware related issue.

The manufacturer has promised to streamline the rollout of software updates for its smartphone going forward. It must be noted that the OnePlus 2 will also be available in a CyanogenMod variant and the Oxygen OS model will be optional for the customers. We expect the handset to be revealed sometime later this year as the OnePlus One is still heavily in demand.

OnePlus apologizes to fans for missing Oxygen OS release deadline

The OnePlus One is expected to get the Android 5.0 update through CyanogenMod 12S. But in India, where CyanogenMod updates are blocked on the device, the company’s upcoming Oxygen OS ROM is the only way to get Android 5.0 on the OnePlus One.

The company has already missed a couple of release deadlines in the past for this ROM and has now announced that it won’t be able to issue the ROM by the end of March as initially promised. After giving the bad news, OnePlus took the time to apologize to the fans who have been waiting for the update from quite some time now.

It was our sincere hope to release the result of our hard work to all of you today,” Helen, Head of Mobile Product at OnePlus, said earlier today. “Unfortunately, we were unable to meet this date and we are as disappointed as you are. On behalf of myself and my team, I would like to apologize for this wait.”

According to OnePlus, the delay in bringing the ROM is related to certification which is pending from Google. So the matter appears to be out of Google’s hands.

This won’t be a conventional update though as users are expected to make a clean install of this ROM, replacing CyanogenMod in the process.

CyanogenOS 12S and Oxygen OS for the OnePlus One rolling out by the end of March

OnePlus One

OnePlus has posted a lengthy explanation on its forum regarding the delay in rolling out the Android 5.0 update for the OnePlus One. The company only speaks about the Oxygen OS related delays as it doesn’t control the Cyanogen OS updates. Either way, the company believes that both versions should be ready for download before the end of this month.

The company mentioned that there were some camera compatibility issues with the Oxygen OS ROM, which meant that they had to rebuild it from scratch. There was also an OS signing issue apparently, but the company reassures customers that all those issues have been resolved now.

To be precise, Oxygen OS will be available for download to those interested starting 27th of March, while the CyanogenMod 12S update will begin arriving over-the-air on March 30 (probably sooner).

Here’s what the company had to say about the delays faced by Oxygen OS – “We never intended to keep you waiting. Unfortunately, we ran into some unexpected roadblocks. First, there was an unforeseen OS signing issue, which has recently been resolved. Our camera module had stability issues on Lollipop, and we had to rebuild it for compatibility. Several other crucial drivers, including our Wi-Fi drivers, also needed to be updated to work flawlessly with the upgrade. Admittedly, it took a little more time than we had planned, but we only release updates that we are proud of; that means refusing to take shortcuts or deliver sub-par experiences.”
