OnePlus One, the smartphone with which OnePlus entered the smartphone market has now been availed the OxygenOS 2.1.4 update.
OnePlus announced the availability of the OxygenOS 2.1.4 for OnePlus One through its official twitter handle. The tweet read “#OxygenOS 2.1.4 is now available for the #OnePlusOne. Here’s everything you need to know: http://onepl.us/O214“. Until now, the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X were powered by the OxygenOS, but now, even the OnePlus One can get a taste of the OxygenOS.
What does the OxygenOS 2.1.4 bring you ask? Well talking the negative aspects of the update, OnePlus removed the MaxxAudio’s proprietary sound technology and relevant applications. Also removed is the manual camera mode and the ability to support RAW file format. Not just that, there also isn’t any fingerprint support or a screen temperature slider included.
What you do get with this update are features like Dark Mode, Custom Icon packs, App Permissions, and, gestures like double tap to wake along with some other gestures. This version 2.1.4 of OxygenOS is specifically made for the OnePlus One.
One thing worth noting is that this update won’t be available via OTA and will have to be flashed manually on your OnePlus One. Also, make sure that you back up all your data stored on the phone before flashing the update as updating your phone will wipe out all the data stored on it.

OnePlus also has some word of caution. “Do not try to flash this build through TWRP. You will most likely lose your radio and IMEI which means a trip to our customer support. It won’t lead to thermonuclear war but just don’t do it.” wrote OnePlus on its forum.
“We do not recommend going through these procedures if you are already rooted, and we strongly recommend using the package above including the OnePlus Recovery to minimize the risk of something going awry.” OnePlus further added on the forum.
