The OnePlus team today announced that they have started rolling out a new OTA update for the One that brings with it quite a few new features and fixes to some known issues.

On the features side, the 05Q build of CM 11S comes with SwiftKey and MaxxAudio by Waves, both of which were announced by OnePlus earlier. Post the update, OnePlus One owners will also be able to select between three autofocus options while recording videos: auto, continuous and infinity. There is also a new Touch Panel firmware included in this update, which should further improve the touchscreen performance of the One.

In addition, the update packs a number of bug fixes that includes audio latency optimization, LED overlays, ANT+ library, system-wide support for WMA and AAC audio codecs and more.

The full change log of the update is below:


  • Fixed dab with Linux 3.10
  • Improved ADB Sideload
  • Improved wipe confirmation screen layout
  • Improved progress bar


  • Fixed wrong emergency call property
  • Improved audio policy flexibility
  • Increased void volume
  • Improved light controls
  • Updated WCNSS configuration
  • Upgraded ADCB Files
  • Powered HAL improvements
  • Upgraded SQLite to version 3.8.6
  • Reduced volume increment/decrement step per click
  • Added support for Query SIM SMS capacity
  • Upgraded TP firmware to 14001220
  • Fixed headset insert/remove crash
  • Fixed ability to hang up a call from a wired audio headset

Set Up:

  • SetupWizard: Allow turning on mobile data if off by default


  • Fixed force close when sharing multiple files over Bluetooth


  • Displays download size as a decimal prefix
  • Enabled scrolling on the system update screen
  • Added Download clicked notification
  • Shows download size on UI
  • Updated Icons
  • Added progress bar


  • Added letterbox view for to show actual capture in preview
  • Added toast information to aid in first time use of Continuous shot


  • Additional supported video types


  • Blacklist, strip extension from number
  • Fixed screen rotation behavior during call


  • Call events can be handled on alarm
  • Fixed city and time zone entries

Overall, this update is pretty solid, though OnePlus One owners would have appreciated if OnePlus and Cyanogen Inc. had gotten their act together and rolled out the Lollipop update for the device, as they had promised. The update entered the QA stage earlier this month.

The OTA update is being rolled out in stages, so it will not show up immediately on your One. Also keep in mind that Indian OnePlus One owners will not be receiving this update thanks to the Micromax and OnePlus fiasco over CyanogenMod’s OS.
