OnePlus has announced the release of OxygenOS Open Beta 24 and Open Beta 15 for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, respectively. Unlike the last update, which was loaded with a plethora of new features and UX improvements, this has a comparatively smaller changelog.
Speaking of the changes, the new update brings in “Soft” screen calibration mode, new boot animations, optimization to recent apps clearing, an update to Community app, and some bug fixing.
More importantly, though, the changelog for the update states that the recently discovered BlueBorne vulnerability has also been patched in this update. In case you are not aware, earlier this week, IoT security firm Armis Labs discovered a major Bluetooth vulnerability which could enable an attacker to gain unauthorized access to unpatched Android, iOS, Windows, and Linux devices. BlueBorne is pretty dangerous in a sense that the attacker doesn’t even need to pair to the target device nor it requires any user interaction in order to gain the full control of the target device.
OnePlus notes that they have to fixed this vulnerability with their own patch independent of the Android security update, and that some BlueBorne vulnerability scanners may fail to recognize their independent patch.
As always, if you’re already running the latest version of Open Beta, you can look forward to receiving this new update via OTA. If you aren’t, you can head over to the OnePlus download page for more details on how to manually flash the beta ROM on your device.
Here is the complete changelog for OxygenOS Open Beta 24/15:
- Added “Soft” screen calibration
We’ve reverted the screen calibration and added the new calibration from last build as “soft.” You can enable the new calibration in the “display> screen” calibration section of settings
- New boot animation
- Optimized the clearing of recent apps
- Updated Community app to V1.9.5
- Minor bug fixes
