OnePlus releases Oxygen OS update for "Stagefright" vulnerability

It's been a little over three weeks since the world learned that a major security flaw found in Android left over 950 million devices vulnerable to being hacked. Following suit with other manufacturers, OnePlus has also released a patch for its Oxygen OS, that will protect against "Stagefright".

Naturally, OnePlus is not the first to issue an update for its devices, as other major companies have also committed to fixing the vulnerability. For those require the update immediately, be sure to hit the source link below and follow these instructions. If you do not feel comfortable updating manually, you'll have to wait until OnePlus pushes it out over an OTA update sometime in the future.

The OnePlus One is now available for purchase without an invite for $299 USD for the 64GB version. OnePlus has also recently announced the their flagship device for 2015, the OnePlus 2, that will start at $329 for a 16GB version and can also be purchased in a 64GB version for $389 USD. However, like the 'One' initially, the OnePlus 2 will require an invite to purchase.
