OyxgenOS 12 update interrupted for OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro due to bugs
OnePlus is in the midst of a messy software transition as it strives to merge its parent company’s Android ColorOS experience with its own OxygenOS software. The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro were the first phones to undergo the transition, and the update was so buggy that OnePlus is now suspending the rollout.
OnePlus released the OxygenOS 12 update for the OnePlus 9 and 9T a few days ago, which not only contained everything that was in Android 12, but also the first iteration of the ColorOS / OxygenOS merged experience. Unfortunately, the update was screen with bugs – issues ranged from failed calls to a broken autofill API. OxygenOS 12 has also removed a lot of long-running OxygenOS features including customization of status bar, ability to delete Google feed, call recording app, and more.
OnePlus has now confirmed Android Police that it has stopped rolling out the OxygenOS 12 update until it fixes some of the issues. The company said, “We are aware of the issues caused by the OxygenOS 12 update and our software team is working to resolve them. We will be suspending this software update and rolling out a new iteration as soon as possible. “
Both phones have had an extended beta testing period for the OxygenOS 12 update, so it’s a bit confusing why so many issues haven’t been fixed, even putting aside the ColorOS-like changes that work. probably as expected. We found that performing a factory reset after the update improved the experience, although no one should ever have to wipe their phone after a standard OS update.
If you really want a buggy phone, the download links for our original OxygenOS 12 update cover still work, but it’s probably a good idea to stick with Android 11 until some of the problems get there. be resolved. Alternatively, if you’ve got a OnePlus 9, maybe now is the time to look at custom ROMs (or buy a completely different phone).
