When the OnePlus One was released last year, it came with the option of having a Cyanogen build of Android or an OxygenOS build of it. The later is the OnePlus home grown version of Android and it is what is standard on the OnePlus 2. The updates to the OxygenOS build have been woefully behind those of the Cyanogen build but today the Chinese manufacture has gone a long way in helping solve that problem. Via a post in their forums they announced that version 2.1.4 of OxygenOS is now available and can be flashed to your OnePlus One.
Make no mistake: we have in no way forgotten about the device that sent OnePlus into orbit, which is why we’d like to take this opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to some of our brand’s most loyal supporters, many of whom have been with us from the word go: OnePlus One fans. The OxygenOS team has put the final touches to this custom release, and we’re delighted to be able to announce that development on OxygenOS 2.1.4. for OnePlus One has been completed and is now available to all.
The news is certainly welcome to OnePlus One owners, of which I am one, as it brings the latest offering from an OS perspective to the device. While the platform still has room to grow, it is clear that this is the direction that OnePlus plans on taking with their devices going forward. The even better news, they have setup detailed instructions on how to flash your device to this new OS.
