OnePlus One Receiving Update to Android 4.4.4 Starting Today

The lucky few who have been able to snatch a OnePlus One will be happy to hear that an update to Android 4.4.4 is scheduled to roll out within hours.

The list of changes in firmware 30O is rather long, but it includes a new camera feature which was announced this morning. Clear Image uses the same principles of HDR to stitch together 10 individual photos, while improving clarity and reducing a photo’s noise. The OnePlus One team says that unlike other image-stitching solutions, Clear Image uses intelligent compression to minimize file size while maximizing quality.

OnePlus One owners, be on the look out.

    Just when I start thinking that this thing slipped away into nothingness, somebody else posts something about it.

  • mcdonsco

    Enjoy the update you two!

  • Update is live now. You guys can get it from Android Police for ADB Sideloading.

    Up and running here. Everything looks good. Lots of new features and bug fixes from CM11 which were lacking from CM11S.

  • Paul Hansen

    Ordered mine Friday. Lets see how long it takes to get here.

    • Evan

      did you get it yet? I just ordered mine today, wondering how long it took.

      • Paul Hansen

        Came via 2 day USPS. Shipped the business day after I placed my order.

        • Evan

          cool. Thanks!

  • jerflash

        • Dave


  • Maxim∑

    It is a great phone, just a bad company.

  • Joshua Pingley

    Yay, love updates!

  • T_Dizzle

    Nice! VZW where you at?

        We put our lives in your hands and you have butterfingers!?

    • Chong Wang

      In my country, 444 very bad ruck.

  • napes22

    There’s nothing in there about the touchscreen sensitivity issues.

  • Guest

    I’ve notice the lockscreen not updating Music info on my N5 Google Music.

  • Alec

    “The lucky few”??? Honestly if people think the phone is that scarce, just buy an invite on eBay for $50, it’s still a fantastic deal.

    • Deez

      If you have to pay to get an invite there’s something wrong with the process…

      • Mitch Joa

        If you have to get an invite, there’s something wrong with the process.

      • Alexander Z Great

        $360 + $50 = ??? Not a bad price for an excellent phone.

      • Alexander Z Great

        Then turn around and sell your invites to get your money back.. Not a bad process 🙂

        • Deez

          Ah, never thought about that. Not a bad idea.

    • j

      brand new LG G2s selling for $250 on swappa. Every other deal is expensive by comparison.

  • Danmheadache

    After seeing G3, there is no goodness in the phone except for CM 11S.

    • epps720

      Besides the phone being half the price of that G3 with 2x the storage

      • Ralph Bretz

        1+1 should have worried more about build quality than trying to make it half the price of real flag ship phones. I’m curious as to the percentage of defective phones compared to the number that have been shipped. It seems high but that just may be because it’s been written about so much because of the horrible customer service.

        • It’s really not that high of a number, it’s just that the people effected by it are the most vocal about it.

        • epps720

          I’m one of the ones with the issues. Had a yellow band but really isn’t that bad and may not have noticed if I wasn’t looking for it. GPS though was not working at all. Waiting for my replacement phone now, and crossing fingers there aren’t any other issues.

      • Danmheadache

        What’s the point of all that if you can’t evem buy without invititation.

      • objektiv_one

        I got my G3 for $480 after selling the OPO for $420. I got a G3 for $60. 🙂

        • epps720

          Well, that’s just an amazing deal

          • objektiv_one

            Got Lucky. The OPO just didn’t do for me. I had yellow band on the bottom, i could block the BT signal with my hand. I was so amp’d then it was just a huge let down. Love the G3 waiting for some XDA community love and i’ll be golden.

        • Dustin B

          So you paid how much for the OPO? $400? Then you sold the OPO for $420, which netted you $20, and you paid $480 for the G3…so your total cost for the G3 was $460, not $60. Math FTW!

          • objektiv_one

            I paid $360.99 after all said and done for OPO. Sold for $420. Profit of about $60. With that $420 plus another $60, I got the G3. Oh and i forgot to mention I sold N5 for $300. So yeah. Math.

    • Joshua Pingley

      Near stock Android, better front camera, better battery life, less dull display, better feeling back cover of the OPO >>>> G3.

  • yay!

  • Tony Byatt

    Right on time for my OPO being delivered today…..

    • Alec

      How long did it take to ship? I ordered mine on Saturday.

      • rslh

        I live in southern Cal. I ordered mine on Monday, got it on Wednesday. No joke.

        • Deez

          But how long did you wait to get an invite?

          • Alexander Z Great

            Have to be in the right place at the right time. I’ve had 7 invites go through my hands.
            Nice to see opo is going to be updating quickly!

          • rslh

            One day late June, I found an invite in my inbox. Didn’t say WHY I got it, but I think I was one of the Storm winners for I remember entering that contest. I got the shareables 6 weeks later, and they gave me 5. I bought another and gave the rest to forum members.

      • Tony Byatt

        Received the invite early in the morning on August 7th, ordered that same day, it was just delivered USPS to southeast Louisiana…

        I have no idea who sent the invite to me…

      • Robert Wagner

        Ordered mine Thursday night and got mine today.

    • GBRunner24

      I ordered mine Friday and it still hasn’t shipped yet 🙁

    • CasperTFG

      Once again, if someone has an invite, please send my way. Greatly appreciated.

      • Tony Byatt

        I have no invites to give according to the site…

      • Arthur Dent

        Yay, invite begging! Playing right into what they want

        • CasperTFG

          It’s asking, You want me to stay quiet and hope I’m the last to get one?

    • AX

      Congrats! Enjoy your yellow screen and crappy reception. To be safe, as with all phones, check for Chicom spyware.

      • Tony Byatt

        No yellow screen and I have great reception…

        But thanks for your comments…

        • Hoo Fat Dong

          But no denial of spyware?

    • John Whitehead

      Anybody with an invite? I have been looking for a couple of months with no luck. I have even added OPO to my non-spam list to make sure I am not missing out.

  • truth_cutz

    It shouldn’t take long to push the update to 20 or 30 phones….

    • mjmedstarved

      No matter if it’s doing to be downloaded once or a billion times….. it all takes the same amount of time to prep the file itself.

    • You have to wait for the OTA invite first.

      • Cael

        Are they raffling those?

    • Maxim∑

      I wouldnt complain. As it shouldnt take a year for Verizon to push updates to most phones. And there are now 178,000 OPO’s not including Chinese versions

      • PoisonApple31

        Every Verizon update is quick these days compared to the HTC Thunderbolt ICS update. =)

        • Paul Hansen

          Everything is better than the Thunderbolt days lol. God I hated that thing. 4 hour battery life ftw!
