In between selling iPhone cases (yes, really) and paying for product placement on the latest season of House of Cards (yes, really), OnePlus seems to have achieved something rather cool on the software front. They've partnered with Canonical, the people who make the popular Linux desktop distribution Ubuntu, in order to bring the mobile version to the original OnePlus One. Neat! OnePlus made the announcement on Google Plus.

OnePlus One Gets Community-Sourced, Manual Flash-Required OxygenOS 2.1.4 Update

OnePlus One owners, OnePlus would like you to know that you haven't been left out in the cold. An update is out for your device that bumps it to OxygenOS 2.1.4. This update is near identical to the version on the OnePlus Two, except it's missing MaxxAudio and relevant apps, the manual camera mode, RAW file format capability, fingerprint support (obviously), and the screen temperature slider.

OnePlus Announces Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update Schedule For The OnePlus One And 2

OnePlus devices run Cyanogen OS or Oxygen OS, but considering the stock look and feel of both, the company's customers are just as eager for the latest version of Android as every one else.

Touchscreen Issues Are Still Plaguing The OnePlus One, And The Latest Problem Disables The Phone Completely

The OnePlus One is no stranger to touchscreen issues. Problems with inaccurate taps have been affecting some users almost since the initial release a year ago - the company has issued no less than seven different "fixes" for the problem across CyanogenMod S and Oxygen OS. The latest problem is easily the most glaring, and it's been documented by our own fearless leader Artem Russakovskii. Basically, the entire touchscreen seems to be shutting off randomly.

Artem isn't the only one experiencing this: his wife had the same issue shortly beforehand on her own OnePlus One. If you're wondering, he's running firmware version YNG1TAS2I3, and he had been using the phone outside (but not in any particularly intense heat) before seeing the problem crop up.

Now it has released another one, OxygenOS version 1.01. A link to download the firmware is available directly inside the announcement. The forum post doesn't contain a changelog, but it does mention "a patch for the touchscreen issue."


There's also a tool available for folks who have not yet installed OxygenOS that should let them flash the latest version directly from CyanogenMod 11 or 12 without data loss.

OnePlus Says No Android 5.1 For OxygenOS Until The OnePlus 2 Is Out, Cyanogen OS 12.1 Coming Soon

OnePlus' breakup with Cyanogen Inc. was neither amicable nor expected, which seems to have left OnePlus in a bit of a bind. The company has managed to get its Lollipop-based OxygenOS ROM out the door for OnePlus One owners, but those hoping for a quick update to Android 5.1 will be disappointed. That's not happening until after the OnePlus 2 is released. The new Cyanogen OS is coming soon, though.
