CM 11S update reportedly available for manual update: fixes a number of well-known OnePlus One bugs
While the OnePlus One has been largely well received by most tech publications, including Android Authority, the handset is not without its faults. Aside from the fact that the phone is fairly hard to get ahold of, some of the biggest complaints have to do with a number of Cyanogenmod 11S bugs that lead to poor call quality, lockscreen glitches and more. The good news is that most of these bugs are about to be squashed.
According to a new report, CyanogenMod 11S has a new update on its way that brings a number of improvements to the OnePlus One. Here’s the list of known changes:
- Better earpiece performance
- Fixes lockscreen glitches
- Smoother 4K video recording
- Adds stereo video recording
- Fixes Home key glitch on double-tap
- Better keyboard haptic feedback
- Redesigned Flashlight app
- New welcome screen
Considering a very limited number of OnePlus One handsets are out there in the wild this update will only directly affect a limited number of folks, but for those that are considering the OnePlus One it also means that you probably won’t have to worry about some of the call quality problems and other issues you might have heard plague the device if you decide to pick one up when its fully available.
It’s important to note that neither Cyanogen or OnePlus have spoken directly about when we might see an OTA update that brings these changes, though Tutto Android has a link to the ROM for those that wish to manually install it. Keep in mind that this means those that already have a OnePlus One will have to clean install this ROM if they don’t want around for its formal rollout (and they should do so at their own risk).
Hopefully it’s only a matter of time before the update is available without having to manually install it, and we’ll be sure to update our readers as soon as we learn more.
