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.
Anyway, enough of the marketing speak. Here’s how to get it on your device:
As OxygenOS for the OnePlus One is a community-sourced project, the package containing OxygenOS 2.1.4 is not available via OTA and will require manual flashing. Fortunately, replacing your pre-existing operating system should be no more challenging than grilling a strip of bacon. Download the appropriate file for your system and follow the instructions. Please note you will lose all your data. Also,do not try to flash this build through TWRP. You will most likely lose your radio and IMEI which means a trip to our customer support. It won’t lead to thermonuclear war but just don’t do it.
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.
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.
If anyone is trying this update, please do let us know your experience.
