OnePlus pulls bug-ridden OxygenOS 12 update, days after release.
OnePlus recently released the Android 12-based OxygenOS 12 for its flagship phones, the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. Users of both 9-series devices reported many issues with the new software post the update, even questioning how the build passed off as a ‘stable’ update in the first place.
As a result, the company has now pulled the OxygenOS 12 update for the OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 9. “We are aware of the issues caused by the OxygenOS 12 update and our software team is fixing them,” OnePlus said in a statement to Android Police. “We will suspend this software update and roll out a new iteration as soon as possible,” the company added.
Issues with the OxygenOS 12 update included crashing menus, inconsistent performance and more. XDA Developers even recommended users upgrading to OxygenOS 12 to factory reset their devices post the update. This is usually done to remove and compatibility inconsistencies, but isn’t something you’d expect from an officially rolled out software update.
