Members at the OnePlus forum have confirmed the new stock OTA build, which brings Android version 5.0.2 Lollipop and is based on build number LRX22G. According to the release note, installing the update provides power improvements and security enhancements.
"Just Now received an update This includes Ok OnePlus! feature!! ( I was on 12.0-YNG1TAS0YL) for 598.4 MB".
The benchmark test result shared by the forum member suggests OnePlus One performed quite well in AnTuTu benchmark v5.7, when tested against a number of high-end rivals such as Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S5, One M8, Xiaomi MI 4. It managed to score 49084 points. In the HTML5 Test, it achieved a browser score of 515 points out of 555.
Steve Kondik, chief technical officer at Cyanogen shared a brief summary of the OTA update, which was suspended temporarily due to some bugs and the error in the voice wakeup.
Just FYI, the reasons why we stopped the initial rollout are because of a problem updating encrypted devices from 11 to 12, and a couple of bugs that we felt were critical enough to fix before continuing (mms/telephony/themes). We also had an error in our production build environment that broke voice wakeup.
Here's what we are doing right now:
1. Rolling out the new bugfixed update to users already on CM12
2. Resuming rollout to users still on CM11 tomorrow (it's late here). You'll actually first see a small 8MB update which will prepare the device for the real update (required if you are encrypted), this will immediately be followed by the new CM12 update.
I apologize for the delays. This is why we do staged rollouts though. Lots of stuff (especially among a crowd like this that might not be in a fully stock state) is really tough to account for when doing OTAs, so we closely watch the diagnostic data and make our decisions based on it.
It's perfectly safe to sideload the build onto your device even if you're encrypted.
