OnePlus has officially announced that OxygenOS 2.1.4, the same OS found on both the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X, is now available for download and installation on a OnePlus One. The OS, customized for the OPO, brings over many of the features found on the version built for the OP2 and OPX, however there are a few things missing.
Here’s the official announcement:
We feel impartial towards mops, we like fast cars and we adore shrimp, but there are two things we absolutely could not live without: Oxygen and Bacon. If you’re cut from the same cloth, we’ve got some good news. For the longest time you’ve been expressing concerns that the OnePlus One was not getting its fair share of love, but that’s all about to change.
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.
Whereas many operating systems have fallen victim to an infestation of abrasive bloatware, OxygenOS 2.1.4 offers a clean, unburdened overall user experience. Now, because no two devices are the same, we inevitably had to deviate slightly from feature parity with the OnePlus 2. MaxxAudio’s proprietary sound technology and relevant applications were removed. The manual camera mode and RAW file format capability also did not make the final cut. For obvious reasons, there is no fingerprint support, nor a screen temperature slider. Beyond these concessions, you will be able to enjoy a version of OxygenOS that has been fully optimized for the OnePlus One.
OnePlus One users will benefit from other features unique to OxygenOS. Try Dark Mode to give your device a touch of elegance, or choose the accent color that suits your mood. Custom icon packs are also supported. With our App Permissions feature, you are in control over what information each app has access to. Finally, double tap to wake and all the other gestures you know and love can be toggled in the settings.
Even though things like RAW file format and MaxxAudio didn’t make the cut, it’s still gonna be a stellar operating system (and upgrade) for any OnePlus One user.
OnePlus did, however, send out this warning to anyone who will be installing the new OS on their OPO:
Please note that we cannot guarantee the integrity of your device once you have unlocked your bootloader. We do not recommend going through these procedures if you are already rooted, and we strongly recommend using the package above including the OnePlus Recovery to minimize the risk of something going awry.
If something does go wrong with the installation, OnePlus informs users to not hesitate to contact their customer support team:
We would like to thank you for your patience and to reiterate our commitment to the entirety of our fanbase. If you encounter any issues while attempting to flash the update, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our Customer Support team, or let us know in this thread.
You can download the new upgrade for the OPO and get more information about the OS at OnePlus’ official forum.
