Latest OnePlus One updates fixes touchscreen issues, for real this time

The OnePlus One has not had a smooth ride to fame since it debuted earlier this year. The unlocked handset boasts powerful specs and a large 1080p screen, but its invite system had precluded many fans from buying one, and its CyanogenMOD-based software has had more than a few problems.

The latest update, CM11S 44S, aims to fix, once and for all, the company’s biggest issues: poor touchscreen responsiveness. According to OnePlus, the update integrates a new Synaptics touch driver that should make mis-presses a thing of the past.

The update also fixes a number of outstanding bugs, including a potentially dangerous one that caused corrupted memory partitions for a small number of users.

A full list of fixes and improvements is below:

  • Resolved SSLv3 POODLE security issue
  • Updated touchscreen firmware
  • Fixed issues with memory causing screen artifacts
  • Fixed issues with random reboots and instability
  • Fixed issues with WiFi and modem crashes
  • Fixed issues with Filesystem
  • Fixed issues with “black bar”
  • Fixed issues with persist partition corruption
  • Fixed issues with AT&T VoLTE

The update will roll out to users over the coming days, or you can download the 90MB update to flash it manually.
