OnePlus X is finally getting the Android Marshmallow upgrade. Its manufacturer has confirmed the rollout of OxygenOS version 3.1.2, the first official Marshmallow build for OnePlus X.
Apart from Marshmallow upgrade that brings Android v6.0.1, OxygenOS 3.1.2 upgrades the launcher with new icon packs, Google search bar UI customisation and new design of wallpaper picker.
Besides, there are improvements over Shelf UX, wherein you can long press boards to rearrange or remove. There are a couple of settings changes including new app permissions and new alert slider settings with more customisation options.
New apps such as OnePlus Music Player and Gallery are part of the new release too. Upon updating your OnePlus X to OxygenOS 3.1.2, you should also notice general system performance improvements and bug fixes. October Android security patches have been implemented in this update.
Those who have installed Facebook or the Facebook Messenger app need to manually give storage permission to the apps, or they might crash while using the camera.
"For those who have flashed Community Builds of OnePlus X, we appreciate your feedback. With your help, we have been able to better optimise and improve several key areas. Thank you for your patience and as always, we look forward to hearing your continued feedback," Berg P from OxygenOS team noted in a posting in the official blog.
Users running OxygenOS 2.2.3, 3.1.0 or 3.1.1 can directly update to version 3.1.2 via OTA (over-the-air) without requiring flashing back to previous versions. But note that the OTA is an incremental rollout and will be gradually available for all users within the next few days. Check out the installation guide below to update your OnePlus X.
