OnePlus X Oxygen OS 2.2.2 July security patch

The OnePlus X has finally been updated, but it’s still not to Marshmallow. The update is instead to Oxygen OS 2.2.2 which does however bring a whole bunch of bug fixes, improvements and additions, so it’s not all bad. OnePlus also promises that the team is “still working to bring Marshmallow to the OnePlus X soon.”

The Oxygen OS 2.2.2 update changelog is pretty extensive, so I’ll paste it in for you here:

  • Upgraded camera to version 1.4 UI
  • Improved camera frame rate performance
  • Added trusted face unlock security option
  • Updated Swiftkey to version 6.3.3
  • Updated carrier name mapping
  • Added July security patches
  • Fixed default SIM card selection issue
  • Fixed network operator selection issue
  • Fixed screen rotation issue
  • General improvements and bug fixes

As always, keep an eye out in your notifications shade for the OTA update or head to Settings > About phone > System update > Check for update to check manually. The rollout is staged, so don’t be alarmed if you don’t receive it instantly; it’s on its way, even if it is overdue.

As one optimistic OnePlus forum user mentioned: “Even if these builds were made out of MM there would have been a lot of bugs so wait – hopefully they will release a stable build of MM 6.0.1 for OPX soon”. The install is around 325 MB.

Have you got the update yet? When do you expect to see Marshmallow?
