oneplus one unboxing (26 of 29)

Owners of the OnePlus One should be receiving an OTA to CyanogenMod’s CM11S build number 44S starting any time now. The update addresses a handful of major glitches and bugs that have been plaguing users, including touchscreen issue, screen artifacts and worse.

The 44S update will push out to your device over-the-air, but is being rolled out by region, so there could be a little delay before you see it on your OnePlus One.

The provided changelog includes a patch for a SSLv3 POODLE security issue, which is great news for your secure web browsing. The full provided changelog looks like this:

  • Fixed an issue with memory causing screen artifacts
  • Fixed the “black bar” issue
  • Fixed persist partition corruption
  • Fixed Filesystem
  • Fixed WiFi and modem crashes
  • Fixed for random reboots and instability
  • Fixed issue with AT&T VoLTE

All in all, the majority of these repairs are for issues that are fairly significant. Screen artifacts and black bars from misguided pixels are enough to cause any user a bit of frustration. Beyond that, the persist partition corruption, Filesystem and WiFi and modem crashes have been forcing reboots, hard resets and even devices to get stuck in a boot loop, not cool.

Luckily, we had already discussed fixes and workarounds for a few of these concerns, but an OTA update is certainly preferable. If the update is not coming soon enough for your liking, here is the direct link to the 44S OTA zip file.

This is a great list of repairs – once you have the update installed, let us know if this also fixes any issues with dropped calls on LTE that you may have been experiencing?
