It isn’t long that the OnePlus 2 received the Oxygen OS 2.0.2 update earlier this month and the OnePlus community has released yet another update to its new ROM. This will take the Oxygen OS to version 2.1.0. OnePlus 2 has been getting better and better with its Oxygen OS updates. The new update comes with important bug fixes and stability improvements. The update brings manual mode in camera settings, raw support for 3rd party camera apps, exchange support and more.
Here are some highlights:
- Added manual mode for photography enthusiasts. This will give you more control for capturing that perfect moment.
- Raw support is now enabled for 3rd party camera apps that support this format
- There’s a new color balance slider in Display for adjusting the color tone of your screen. You can now go warmer or cooler as you please.
- Added Exchange support.
- We fixed some issues that were causing problems with popular 3rd party apps.
- Telephony service improvements so you no longer get the lag when you turn on/off airplane mode.
The Oxygen OS update v2.1.0 installs readily on the OnePlus 2 using the stock Recovery. However, to update to the latest version, you need to be on v2.0.2 and make sure you have not made any major changes to the system. If you have rooted your stock ROM, then you need to flash the full firmware via a custom recovery like TWRP. Make sure you have the latest TWRP recovery installed on your device.
