Android Marshmallow is finally here for the OnePlus Two smartphone. An OxygenOS 3.0.2 over-the-air firmware featuring an upgrade to Android version 6.0.1 is currently seeding. Like always this is an incremental rollout and would be widely available within the next couple of days.
Apart from Android Marshmallow, this rollout adds a host of new features and enhancements. It should be noted that this update would clear your stored fingerprint, and if you have a fingerprint authentication set up, you will need to re-enrol before using it. The update weighs in at 141 MB. Following are the key features in this update:
- Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow upgrade
- Enhanced Doze mode for better battery life
- Systemwide performance improvements
- Improved fingerprint sensor performance and recognition
- New OnePlus Camera UI and AF optimisation
- MaxxAudio and Tuner have been removed. We have integrated with Dirac HD Sound technology for the speaker so you get a great experience without the knobs and dials
- Shelf UX has been improved. You can now long press to edit a board
- You can lock apps in recents so they won't be cleared away. Also added clear process in addition to clear-all for those of you who want better control of background processes
- Network operator selection will now stick to your choice so you don't accidentally roam onto unintended networks
- Swiftkey update to 6.3.3
Those who have not received the update notification yet can manually flash the OxygenOS 3.0.2 firmware on their OnePlus 2 via stock recovery using the OTA download link, which has been shared by folks over the OnePlus forum. If you have rooted your phone, then flash OxygenOS 3.0.1 using TWRP to remove the root. Then flash version 3.0.2 OTA file using TWRP again. Head over to the OnePlus forum to know more about OxygenOS 3.0.2 update.
