OnePlus 2 Oxygen OS 3.0 Test Build Download
Update – April 5, 2016 – The OnePlus 2 Oxygen OS 3.0 ROM is now available for eager users. This ROM isn’t the final version, so there will be bugs. OnePlus has released this beta build so developers and users can test out the ROM and provide valuable feedback.
Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for OnePlus 2 has been a long time coming, and it seems like the final build could drop this month. This new build of Oxygen OS 3.0, which is based on Android 6.0.1, is called ‘community build’.
If you want to try out Oxygen OS 3.0 on your OnePlus 2, you can do so, and you can even use it as your daily driver, sort of. Like we said before, there will be bugs, so make sure you’re okay with bugs and issues before updating.
However, those who have updated, are really liking the new update. According to several users, the OnePlus 2 has gotten faster, the fingerprint scanner is much more accurate and faster now, the apps load faster, camera UI has been improved, and much more. Battery life has improved for some, while others are still complaining about poor battery performance.
Overall, the OnePlus 2 Oxygen OS 3.0 test build is a must try for anyone who’s been eagerly waiting for the Marshmallow update. The build works well with OTA updates, so you will continue to receive updates after updating to OS 3.0. Your settings and other presets will be lost after updating and there’s no way to go back to Oxygen OS 2.2.1 without wiping your data.
