New Cyanogen OS 12 build eliminates OnePlus One’s touchscreen woes
A new Cyanogen OS 12 build for the OnePlus One finally eliminates the handset’s touchscreen woes for good. The update is available to download now for manual flashing, and it weighs in at 566MB.
One owners have been plagued by frustrating touchscreen problems since the handset first went on sale, and despite a whole host of updates that have promised to fix it, it remains an issue for many. But according to Cyanogen, the problem really has been fixed in its latest build.
Version YNG1TAS2I3 of Cyanogen OS 12 also promises to fix Bluetooth connectivity problems with many in-car entertainment systems, and MMS sending on “several” carriers.
If you’re already running build YNG1TAS17L of Cyanogen OS 12, you can download the latest update as a 20MB OTA file. But if you’re running another version — or an entirely different ROM — you’ll need to download the whole 566MB firmware file and flash that instead.
Both files can be installed with a custom recovery, and if you aren’t already running one, you can follow our guide to rooting the One — which includes the installation of TWRP.
Just remember to backup your data before you flash anything. The OTA update should leave your existing setup intact, but flashing the full firmware file or switching from another ROM will wipe your device.
