OnePlus Releases OxygenOS 5.0.1 for the OnePlus 3 and 3T

After releasing the Android Oreo based OxygenOS 5.0 build last week for the OnePlus 3 and 3T, OnePlus as rolled out a minor update to address some bugs that cropped up in that build along with a few new features.  The new build is 5.0.1 and, as is always the case with OnePlus, they are slow rolling the update out to users.

The bug fixes are a key part of this update to OxygenOS as well as some performance improvements.  This 5.0.1 build also has the December 2017 Android Security Update patch.  According to the change log, here is the full rundown of features & improvements:

  • Added support for aptX HD
  • Added Wi-Fi hotspot device manager
  • Added “adaptive mode” screen calibration
  • Updated Android security patch to December
  • General bug fixes and stability improvements

If you are already running the 5.0 build, the OTA incremental update is just shy of 145MB in size.

Given the small size, you can download it via your mobile connection but WiFi is always recommended.

Finally, there have been a few reports of users getting a harmful app warning after updating.  This error is flagging the FactoryMode which is built into Android.  If you get the warning, you can ignore it as this app will not harm your device.
