OnePlus Rolls Out OxygenOS 4.0.1 for The OnePlus 3 and 3T

A little over a week after the initial Nougat-based OxygenOS 4.0 release, OnePlus has released a small update for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.  The new OxygenOS 4.0.1 build is rolling out to both devices currently and is primarily focused on addressing bugs and stability issues with the OS on these devices.  As OnePlus does, the update will be released to a small number of users first then roll out to the larger population as confirmation all is well with the update comes into them.

As for what is addressed, probably the biggest news is the updated APN settings.  After the initial OxygenOS 4.0 update, many 3 and 3T owners had network connectivity issues with their carrier.  This update should resolve those issues.  However, in the posting announcing the update, OnePlus is saying that if you still have issues, to manually adjust the APN settings or, worst case, report it to the product team at OnePlus with your phone model and carrier involved so they can help identify the issue and resolve it.

OnePlus 3 and 3T See Android Nougat Update

Keeping with their self imposed end-of-2016 deadline, OnePlus has released the Android Nougat based OxygenOS 4.0 update for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.  The update was released very late on December 31st, hitting the deadline and the update is now making its way out to all owners of the 3 and 3T.  While it still may take a few days for your phone to see it, it is out and it is only a matter of time.

The update is all focused on Android Nougat.  The release notes in the OnePlus forums essentially highlight all of the features of Nougat and speak very little of any other changes that the company has made in their custom version of Android.

OnePlus 3 Sees OxygenOS Update – But Not THAT Update (Yet)

OnePlus has begun rolling out OxygenOS 3.2.8 for the OnePlus 3 but before you get all excited, no, it’s not Nougat.  Not yet at least.  The update is a small one but does bring several improvements and fixes to the OP3, the company’s flagship device until a couple of weeks ago with then 3T was announced.  Still, OnePlus has remained committed to getting software updates out for both the 3 and the 3T and even though this update isn’t Nougat, that is expected before the end of the year.

So what’s in this update?  Quite a few nice changes and updates

OnePlus Releases Beta 6 of OxygenOS 3.5.5 for the OnePlus 3

OnePlus has released a 6th beta of their Android Nougat based OxygenOS release for the OnePlus 3.  The new build, version 3.5.5, brings a lot of changes as the company gets ready for a public release of the update in December.  If you already have the beta installed on your OnePlus 3, this update to the home-brew version of Android for the OP3 will come to you via an OTA update.  If you are not a part of the beta program, you can sign up and then do a manual flash of your device to this latest build.

As for what is addressed in this update, it is pretty extensive and for those in the beta program, its well worth the update.

The OnePlus team has begun rolling out an OTA update to the OnePlus 3 that brings a sizable number of improvements to the device.  OxygenOS 3.2.2 is being rolled out to users in phases as the company continues to tweak and improve their homebrew version of Android Marshmallow for the flagship phone.  One of the big changes is the improvement of notification management in Doze, the battery saving feature of Marshmallow while your phone is unplugged and idle.  Another big improvement is the alert slide/silent mode issue where some users were accidentally turning on their phones while dropping it into their pockets.  This, appears at least, to have been fixed with this update.

OnePlus Releases OxygenOS Update for OnePlus 2

OnePlus this morning announced that the latest update to their OxygenOS platform for the OnePlus 2 has been released.  The update brings the Android based OS up to version 2.2.1 for those keeping score at home and will be pushed to devices via an OTA update.  For those who may not be familiar with it, OxygenOS is OnePlus’ homespun version of Android with several customized tweaks to suite their flagship device.  The company has been moving away from Cyanogen, which they originally released with the OnePlus One, as they want more control over the Android experience.

OnePlus Releases OxygenOS 2.1.4 for OnePlus One

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.

For you blessed few who have actually got your hands on the OnePlus X, today is a good day for you.  OnePlus has announced in their user forums that a new update to OxygenOS is now available for your device.  The update is build 2.1.3 and it is primarily focused on solving some SD card issues that have plagued the new, budget friendly device.

We’ve heard your feedback and have spent some time focusing on improving the user experience for SD card. We are not done yet so please expect more updates and feature additions to come in the next couple of OTAs, but here’s what’s included in this one:

  • SD card related improvements including:
    • UX improvements
    • exFAT SD card support
    • Ability to move apps to and from SD card
    • Fixed reboots caused by removing SD card in an active state

This is certainly good news and users of the OnePlus X should get this OTA update quickly.  It is recommended that you update to it as soon as possible.

OnePlus X Launch Set for October 29th

It looks like we will see OnePlus’ latest offering, the OnePlus X, in a few weeks time in London.  On the company’s twitter account, a teaser post was made with a image of a lit X as part of the post.

 

The post seems to confirm that the OnePlus X, the smaller sibling to the OnePlus 2, will be launched worldwide on the 29th.  While it is good to see OnePlus expanding their portfolio, the company is having some almighty challenges getting stock on their flagship phone.  The only hope is that they have sorted that out for the OnePlus X.
