OnePlus One gets a new CyanogenMod software update

OnePlus and Cyanogen today started rolling out a software update for the OnePlus One smartphone. The update - CyanogenMod 11S (44S) - is being "slowly" pushed over the air in phases, so not everyone will get it right away.

The new update includes various fixes that obviously make the OnePlus One user experience better. Here’s the official changelog that OnePlus posted on its forums:
  • Fixed issues with random reboots and instability
  • Fixed issues with memory causing screen artifacts
  • Fixed issues with WiFi and modem crashes
  • Fixed issues with Filesystem
  • Fixed issues with "black bar"
  • Fixed issues with persist partition corruption
  • Fixed issues with AT&T VoLTE 
The 11S (44S) update comes about a month after the previous important software update, which brought, among other things, high-quality audio playback, and the ability to shoot photos in RAW format.

Back in July, OnePlus confirmed that the One would get Android 5.0 Lollipop (though, at the time, the new version of the OS was called Android L) “within three months” from receiving the final software from Google. Thus, the handset should be updated to Lollipop in February the latest.

OnePlus already sold 500,000 One handsets, and plans to sell a total of 1 million units before the end of the year.

3rd largest Os compared to iOS and Android, with millions of users ... small? you must not know Cyanogenmod,

Large community, but small company. CM11S doesn't have hundreds (thousands?) of developers working on it like regular CM does. CM11S is a specific ROM for a specific phone.

This update should have been sent out when the phone was released, not 6 months later...

Wow. A 6 month wait to fix all of those issues? I would have gotten rid of that phone I'd I owned one.

Those bugs were new bugs that cropped up with the last update last month. I know because I have a OPO and those bugs appeared over the last two weeks. Now they're gone. It'd be good to know what you were talking about before talking a bunch of crap.

I've been running the latest 38r update for over 3 weeks now (was on 33r before that) and have ONLY experience ONE of these issue's. Which is the call drop via VoLTE on ATT issue, which for the last week I just switched my data to 3G and my calls have completed. Also, the last 3-4 days I have been on LTE (using 38r still) and my calls are now completing, so not only did CM send us a fix within 2 weeks, but ATT also resolved the issue from their end. Aside from that one issue, I haven't had a single problem with my OPO, and neither has my cousin (on T-Mobile) and my neighbor (on StraightTalk - ATT MVNO). Neither of them experience the call dropping issue either, only me on true ATT. I love my OPO :-)

I didn't have any of these issues other than WiFi crashing but it wasn't a deal breaker because I have great service

Finally, can't believe this phone went so long with these annoying problems. WiFi crashing was a huge inconvenience

I have owned one for the last 2 weeks and havn't had any of those issues or any issues at all. Best phone I have ever bought and it just happens to be the cheapest one I have ever bought.

Then install a different launcher/theme. That's the beauty of this phone.

All those who only talk s**t, are frustrated that do not have a One Plus One. Keep calm and wait to have a One (and be happy forever lol)
