OnePlus resumes OxygenOS 11 rollout for the Nord after fixing bugs

A swift turnaround.

Update, March 15 (09:15 am ET): The rollout has now resumed.

What you need to know

  • OnePlus has pulled OxygenOS 11 for the Nord after finding bugs.
  • Users logged their concerns over at OnePlus's official forums just hours after the release.
  • An updated build will be coming shorty.

OnePlus has started rolling out OxygenOS 11, bringing Android 11 alongside its own software overlay to its devices. This week, the rollout finally hit the OnePlus Nord, one of the best cheap Android phones we've seen, and the phone nailed for returning OnePlus to its affordable flagship roots in reviews.

Despite the relatively slow rollout pace, OnePlus didn't quite manage to satisfy all its customers when it came to the quality of the update. In the 24 hours since the release, many found bugs that ranged from trifling to crippling. Some of those bugs found by the testers included heavy battery drain, interface lag, and camera performance issues. As a result, OnePlus has pulled the update from its servers and will re-release once it's patched whatever it could.

A OnePlus community consultant shared the following message on OnePlus's forums (spotted by XDA Developers):

We've noticed that many of you have queries about the availability of Nord's Android 11 update.

The update has been temporarily paused to ensure a smooth user experience, due to some bugs that have been detected. We are now trying our best to investigate and will release an updated build ASAP in the near future. Users who have installed the previous version can get the issues fixed through the later version updates. Thank you very much for your patience.

Major Android releases are prone to being buggy when they first roll out, with the exception of some manufacturers. Limited rollouts like this help OEMs catch bugs before they can become widespread. Hopefully, a fix arrives sooner rather than later for those who have already installed the update.

Update, March 15 (09:15am ET) ― OxygenOS hotfix update now rolling out

After halting the OxygenOS 11 rollout for the Nord, OnePlus today announced the rollout of the OxygenOS hotfix update. OnePlus says only a small number of Nord users will receive the update today, but a wider rollout is expected to begin in a few days.

How to watch England vs New Zealand: Live stream 2nd Test series cricket on

With the first Test ending in a draw, the series is on a knife edge at Edgbaston, as Joe Root's side look to put off the field controversies to one side and claim a much needed win against the Kiwis. Don't miss a single ball of the 2nd Test with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide below. The series has been somewhat overshadowed by the emergence of offensive historic tweets posted by Ollie Robinson who made his debut in the opening Test but has since been suspended. With the controversy still brewing amid interventions from politicians and accusations leveled at other members of the team, Root has a battle on his hands to keep his side focused on the game ahead. One positive for Root coming into the game is that they'll be playing in front of a near capacity crowd at Egbaston, with the overwhelming majority of the expected 18,000 spectators set to be cheering on the home side. The tourists have been delivered a huge blow coming intot his final match, with s

Review: The Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) is a truly moving Alexa speaker

This new Echo Show is a real head-turner. The smart speaker market has grown quite a bit since Amazon introduced the first Echo in late 2014. However, after introducing the first Echo Show in 2017, the evolution of smart screened devices hasn't progressed nearly so quickly. There have mostly been incremental updates to the devices put out by Amazon, Google, and others like Lenovo, adding bigger screens and (marginally) better speakers, but nothing has really moved the category forward. As it has done several times before, Amazon is poised to usher in the next paradigm shift in smart speaker tech with its latest Echo device, the Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen). I've had the pleasure of using just about every Alexa and Google Assistant-enabled smart speaker over the past few years, so I feel well-suited to write this Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) review based on that background. I'm not going to get too far into the argument of which smart assistant is better — by now, you've

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. Samsung's bes

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.
