Lots of OnePlus 2 house owners have felt burned as a result of lack of OTA updates that OnePlus has pushed out. For some time, house owners of those units had been advised that the OnePlus 2 was ultimately going to be receiving an official replace to Android 7.0 Nougat. That sadly turned out to not be the case, thus making the final official construct of OxygenOS for the machine to be primarily based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Fortunately, the machine nonetheless has fairly the developer assist on our boards, and builders have simply launched an early construct of LineageOS 15 primarily based on Android 8.0 Oreo for the machine.
OnePlus guarantees they’ll have higher long-term software program assist for the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T since they’ve organized their software program improvement division. We’ll have to attend and see how that seems, however customers of these units ought to take solace in the truth that the OnePlus customized improvement group has at all times been sturdy, so even when OnePlus is unable to proceed offering assist, members of the XDA boards will likely be there to fill the gaps. Although we don’t but have official builds of LineageOS 15 for any machine proper now, group builders are constructing ROMs primarily based on what’s already there within the gerrit for quite a lot of units.
The most recent to get its first style of Android Oreo through LineageOS 15 is the OnePlus 2, and this construct is feasible because of XDA Acknowledged Contributor (in addition to the whole LineageOS crew). This preliminary launch was made accessible yesterday and it has already been up to date to revision 3. As common with these early builds, that is to be thought of an alpha and there are some bugs you have to be conscious of. Lots of stuff does work although, together with RIL, WiFi, Bluetooth, hotspot, fingerprint scanner, VoLTE, and the sensors (GPS and many others.).
Nonetheless, there are some issues that presently don’t work and are nonetheless being debugged presently. As of scripting this, that features the digicam, alert slider, offline gestures, and probably extra. With an early construct like this, it’s unimaginable for one developer to know all the bugs that are current. So in case you come throughout any then please make sure to report it (and embody logs) within the thread linked beneath.
