OxygenOS 2.1.4 Update is Now Available for OnePlus One (Download & Installation Guide)

Finally, OnePlus has released OxygenOS 2.1.4 for OnePlus One, which offers new features, clean and unburdened user experience. This version of OxygenOS is a full firmware package, so it is not available via OTA (over-the-air). You will require flashing the firmware manually. The below guide explain how to update OnePlus One to the latest OxygenOS version 2.1.4 manually.

However, owners of OnePlus One can enjoy all other unique features of OxygenOS like Dark Mode, custom icon packs, App permissions, double tap to wake and all other gestures.
