OTA uptdate for the OnePlus One

The lucky owners of an OnePlus One will receive a notification for an OTA update. The new version, CM 11S 38R, corrects some important bugs an adds a few improvements to this amazing device.

The OnePlus One is still one the best devices we can buy at a very reasonable off-contract price, despite all the criticism that its sales tactics has raised. It’s one of the few smartphones running Cyanogenmod, and the developers are working hard on its performance.

During the few months that the OnePlus One has been on the market, the owners have found some bothersome issues that are going to be fixed with this updated, mainly regarding the glaring touchscreen problem.

In addition, this OTA offers an interesting list of improvements, such as a new lockscreen and the ability to take photos in RAW format. The audio capabilities have been enhanced (you can play high resolution music—24 bit, 96/192khz—flac/alac/wav files without resampling) and the OnePlus One included now ANT+ support.


The full list of changes has been detailed on the OnPlus forum:

Added method for users to report bugs directly to Cyanogen.
Added pause button during video recording.
Improved battery life.
Fixed issues with camera exposure compensation stuck in ‘auto’.
Fixed issues with ‘4G Preferred’ option not connecting to 3G data.
Fixed issues with delay in torch activation.

Fixed issues with static in speaker when changing volume while headset plugged in.
Fixed issues with rotation not triggering when rotated slowly.
Fixed issues with Quiet Hours / system UI causing battery drain on last day of month.

If you are one of the lucky owner to have this amazing smartphone, keep an eye on the notifications because the OTA update will be rolling out these days.
