Many OnePlus One owners have been settling lately, and it looks like OnePlus — after many attempts — is still trying to finally put the phone’s touch screen issues to rest. A new build of Cyanogen OS was pushed just a couple of days ago to fix issues for those on that OS, but now OnePlus is pushing out an update to its OxygenOS as well, bumping it to version 1.01.

The announcement post, sadly, doesn’t have a full change log. It only mentions this one touch screen fix that many OnePlus One owners have been waiting for. You can head over to the OnePlus forums to grab the firmware. The company did, however, mention a new tool that lets those on Cyanogen OS easily flash a build of OxygenOS without losing your data:

In addition, our friends over at Fastboot Mobile and XDA actually worked on a migration tool that will allow those of you who haven’t tried OxygenOS yet to easily flash from CM 11 or 12 without losing your data. The tool is in beta but we thought it was pretty cool so why not share it and let you play with it.

Proceed with caution and follow the instructions carefully. It’s beta so it’s not guaranteed to work 100%.

Prerequisite:

Tool download: http://eu-oxygen.cust.fastbootmobile.com/OnePlusOneMigration-logging-Beta1.zip

Steps:

  1. Unzip the above into its own folder
  2. Copy the flashable OxygenOS zip and MD5 into the “download” folder contained in the above
  3. On the device go to Settings > Developer options and uncheck Update CM Recovery (CM has this checked as default which causes issues)
  4. Make sure the device is plugged into the computer
  5. Run the “OnePlusOneMigration.exe” file as Administrator
  6. Accept any prompts to confirm the drivers – they are ours and are signed
  7. Follow the prompts (as prompted) and you should end up with OxygenOS installed. The ADB sideload process can take awhile to finish.

If you found moving to OxygenOS daunting before, this might be your opportunity to try out OnePlus’ almost-stock OS.
