OnePlus recently paused the deployment of Cyanogen OS 12 for the OnePlus One to add a new feature. The company decided customers might like an option that allows them to speak the term “OK OnePlus” to execute a command, so it pulled the update to bake that feature in. It’s now ready, and the update is again rolling out to owners of the OnePlus One, but that wasn’t the only reason the update was pulled.
OnePlus’ Steve Kondik said on the company’s forums that it stopped the rollout because it also found bugs that needed fixing. “The reasons why we stopped the initial rollout are because of a problem updating encrypted devices from 11 to 12, and a couple of bugs that we felt were critical enough to fix before continuing (mms/telephony/themes), Kondik said. “We also had an error in our production build environment that broke voice wakeup.”
The new update is fixing bugs for users already on Cyanogen OS 12 and it will also update Cyanogen OS 11 folks to the new software. “You’ll actually first see a small 8MB update which will prepare the device for the real update (required if you are encrypted), this will immediately be followed by the new CM12 update,” Kondik explained. He added that it’s “perfectly safe to sideload the build onto your device even if you’re encrypted.”
