OnePlus has pulled its first upgrade for the OnePlus 3 after users encountered issues during the install process. The Chinese startup promises it will be available again soon for those who were unable to install it on Tuesday.

The first OnePlus 3 update was a pretty significant one, adding a new sRGB display mode to address complaints with its new AMOLED panel, and making a long list of improvements to things like RAM management, camera performance, GPS accuracy, and more.

If you have already gotten your hands on the OnePlus 3, then, you will have been keen to grab this release as soon as possible. But unfortunately, it seems not many were able to install it when it was first made available on Tuesday, and it has now been pulled.

“Due to some reports of issues while upgrading, we are temporarily stopping the rollout to investigate,” said OnePlus in a post on its forums. “We will start back up as soon as possible.”

We don’t know exactly what those install problems were, but it makes sense that OnePlus wants to eliminate them before too many users encounter the same issue. We can only wait to find out when the release will be available again.
