OxygenOS 3.6.1 For OnePlus 2 Brings Fixes For KRACK, October Security Patch & More


Even though the OnePlus 2 won't be upgraded to Nougat, OnePlus is still tendering to the device with security patches and bug fixes. The Shenzhen based Chinese smartphone manufacturer is now rolling out OxygenOS 3.6.1 to the OnePlus 2, four months after OxygenOS 3.6.0 was rolled out in July.

This update comprises of the October security patch, fixes for KRACK vulnerability in WPA2 WiFi protocol and bug fixes. The KRACK vulnerability in WiFi Protected Access II (WPA2) protocol allows a hacker to gain control over communication made from a WPA2-enabled device. This means that the hacker might be able to eavesdrop on (or even manipulate) your web activities. An exploit of this vulnerability may lead to loss of sensitive information (like credit card numbers) and a breach to one's privacy.

As always, this is an incremental update rollout. The update will be extended to a randomly selected group of users on the first day. The batch size will keep increasing each following day until the update has been made available to everyone. In case you have a OnePlus 2, you will have to wait for the update to reach you. If you wish to install the update manually via ADB, you can grab the update file from the links below.
