OnePlus One now getting Cyanogen OS 12.1 update
Are you still rocking the OnePlus One? This legendary device continues to be one hell of a phone, even though it has been over a year since it was first launched and its successor, the OnePlus 2, is already out. The OnePlus One is not an aging phone, though, and today’s update will give it a bit more life.
The One is currently getting upgraded to Cyanogen OS 12.1, which happens to be based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Your update should be showing up soon enough, but be patient. As it goes with most OTA updates, this one is also rolling our periodically. Only about 2% of users were getting the automatic download as of this afternoon.
The good news is you don’t really have to wait for the update to come to your device. You can download it straight from here if you don’t mind installing it manually. And those who were running the newer Android 5.0 release can also use a smaller file to upgrade their phones. But those who are not fans of tinkering with their phones should refrain from doing this and simply wait for the update to show up.
The larger update weighs 645 MB, while the smaller file is only 304 MB. Have any of you gotten the update yet? Hit the comments and let us know how it’s treating you! We have heard rumors that the update sets your Chrome home button to Bing, which is totally weird (I guess they are getting to friendly with Cyanogen).
