How To Install OxygenOS 2.2.2 On OnePlus X – Full ROM + OTA

The OnePlus X was pretty much one of the best deals of the moment when it was launched, offering an excellent spec sheet for the price, alongside a really good looking design. Also, one of its main selling point is the operating system, OxygenOS, which is pretty much an improved version of stock Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. To be more specific, you’re getting all the goodies of a Nexus, alongside a few tweaks, brought by the manufacturer’s custom ROM.

Still, it wasn’t perfect. Even though it sounds flawless, a lot of users complained about the operating system, which was dealing with some annoying issues.
