A new firmware update is seeding for OnePlus One owners with build version YOG4PAS2QL based on Cyanogen OS 12.1. This is not too big an update, but an incremental release, weighing in at 18MB. As the update description suggests, it's a maintenance release incorporating bug fixes and critical security updates.
"I got it a few days ago over ota. Updated it successfully...no error.Works like charm. Battery has improved a lot. The only thing my opo was missing the battery which is back again. Thanks oneplus. Keep this device always updated," reported a member at a OnePlus forum who is among those who have received this incremental version.

Given below are two different methods. You may choose either of them to install the update depending on the root status of your phone.
