The OnePlus 3 doesn’t only get the CyanogenMod 13, but also a new version for OxygenOS. If you’re a owner of this device, you might have heard about the new version hitting the market. The OxygenOS 3.2.2 version will be installed via OTA (which means over the air) but we are here to help you out if you want to install it manually. we’re talking about some fixes like canceling noise when recording a video, which many OnePlus 3 owners have been complaining about, as well as interrupting the fingerprint sensor when the smartphone is in a pocket.
We hear the new version of the OS also brings fixes to RAM problems as well as the RGB mode feature we all have been waiting for. The notification pad is brought with a new button for NFC as well as a better overall experience for Doze mode. Some issues noticed by users have been said to be security problems, so the 3.2.2 version of the OS is also bringing some patches for that.
We recommend backing up your data (even though the process should not erase your data, you always need to be extra sure) as well as having a full battery before starting the installation process.
Disclaimer: This method was only tested for OnePlus 3, so do not try this on any other device, especially with another operating system embedded.
Alright! Let’s get right into the steps for the installation. We have two methods for this process, one for non rooted devices and one for the ones that are rooted.
