Update OnePlus 2 to Official OxygenOS 3.0.2 (Marshmallow)

OnePlus 2 users had a long wait and it’s time to enjoy the Marshmallow treat. After 2 community (beta) builds, OnePlus has started the rollout of official (non-beta) OxygenOS 3.0.2 builds to OnePlus 2 users in the wild. The update packs Android Marshmallow (6.0.1) and some much-needed system performance improvements.

The update will be released in a phased manner and it may take up to 48 hours for users to start receiving it globally. However if you’re the one who can’t wait, download the appropriate version from the links provided below and follow the instructions.

If you’ve disabled Google services on your current device, please re-enable before upgrading via OTA. If Google services is disabled, you may experience system boot issues after installation.

  • Hi,

    I have never upgraded the version or the OS before, is it safe to follow the steps defined here? Will i lose any data ? Shall I take a backup?

  • I upgraded my oneplus two few months back. I didn’t face any problems except one, ie. My notification led doesn’t seem to be working after that. I really don’t know why. I tried everything but it doesn’t seem to get fixed. Any solutions?

  • Hey guys,

    So since i updated my OnePlus X to Marshmallow, I’ve had similar problems, certain apps like sound profile apps and Whatsapp no longer working like they are supposed to. My WhatsApp no longer let me download any kind of media and I was getting annoyed so I contacted Customer Care and got the solution.

    Solution:
    1) Back up all media or anything of importance on device
    2) Factory Reset phone
    3) Set up phone as new device (can restore from backed up Google account)
    4) Reinstall apps
    5) Upon setting up WhatsApp allow all permission pop up windows. The program should be working good as new now!

    Oh this solution works for any apps with the permission problem.

    • Yes, that’s cool, but the whole point of Over-the-air updates is that the device is not required to be flashed back to stock images and can be updated on the go. The issues like this actually ruin the seamless experience that OTA is supposed to provide.
      Thanks for sharing, though, Cheri. I’m sure this will help some other users of OnePlus 🙂

  • Vibrate on touch has modified its pattern, and is really annoying to feel a double vibration per tap. Also, native app permission won’t open and there is no way to open previous OS version. Another thing I can’t seem to get is to make Google Now on tap work, without making a workaround from the buttons section in settings. I was rooted before upgrading OTA. Any help will be appreciated.

    Ps: my google now bar on multitasking disappeared months ago, even before the update.

  • With oxygen os 3.0.2, while having call, even though full network is available, it will display message as “cellular network is not available” and call will get disconnected..

  • Hi – My one plus two is running on oxygen 3.02 & Android 6.01 and am not able to find the call settings option to deactivate conditional call forwarding option. Can someone please suggest solution for fixing same ?

    • Move the alert slider to priority and then to silent after that bring back to normal.. your ring tone and vibration settings should be back.. I faced same issue and the above solution worked..

  • Hi,
    I update to oxygen 3.02 & Android 6.01. I am facing problem that whatsapp is not being displayed in ‘draw over other apps’. This has given rise to problem that contacts not being displayed.

    any solution to same please let me know.

  • I second Kishor, same and static problem. This is not an upgrade at all, what’s the point of me having to open the screen to check if there are notifications and only get them then and there?

  • I have tried to reinstall oxygen OS 3.0.2 twice, but still facing same issue. Apps are not getting synced, when mobile is in idle state with screen off. Like not getting any mails, whats messages, FB etc ………. Any suggestions to rectify this???

  • Guys after upgrading my phone to MM 6.0.1 my Oneplus two ringtone is not working since one month..i booted the phone like 6 to 7 times still it did not worked please suggest me some tips !

  • I downloaded the oxygenos 3.0.2 after a 1.1 gb download, it stated verifying download and then dint install , now the screen says download now.
    It wants me to download 1.1 gb again and no guarantee it will install. cant waste internet data.

    Van someone help,.
    I searched file manager it shows a zipfile 1.09 gb but the name has dates 150919… which looks like a sept 15 file when i last updated firmware. I doubt this is the new file. Anyways this file is dated may16 last modified so guessing it cant be the one downloaded now.

    Please help

    • OOS 3.0.2 shouldn’t be last modified on May 16, unless it was automatically downloaded to your phone a long back and you only started to install it now.
      Find the MD5 of the file and see if it is 46b1fde116275d83d05c2dd89422069f. If it is, you can proceed to installing it via recovery. Otherwise, please download a fresh copy using your PC and flash that.

  • After update MM my op2 I’m facing a problem that while a incoming call my phone rings but there is no display of call I have to scroll down the notification bar than select the ongoing call to see who is calling

  • I upgraded to Marshmallow after 1 month of wait period, hoping that most of the issues would have resolved by then. Although overall performance is good, the critical functionality, which is ringtone isn’t working. I tried various hacks mentioned in this article, except for factory reset without any success.

      • Hey,

        Try rebooting the device twice. den push the notification slider down (All Notification). then follow below steps each time after u reboot ur device.

        1. settings…. sound & notification … increase the ring volume.
        2. settings … alert slider…priority settings… select messages and calls ‘from anyone’.

        It worked for me… hope it works for u as well.

  • Guys tried something to get my ringtone notifications are back, see if it helps.
    After MM update, though you set the alert slider to ” All Notification”, actual setting for messages and call was defaulted to “None” and was not allowed to edit.
    Switched to “Priority Settings” and allowed calls & messages from anyone ( as opposed to what’s priority 🙂 ).
    Switched back to ” All Notifications” and now call and message is editable and managed to set to “From Anyone”

    Working as of now without flash or factory reset !

    Give it try or post new workaround 🙂 or Buy One Plus 3 🙁

    • Thank you it worked for me, but its a temporary solution. I switched off my mobile and turned it on and faced same issue 🙁

        • Move the alert slider to priority and then to silent after that bring back to normal.. your ring tone and vibration settings should be back.. I faced same issue and the above solution worked..

    • Santosh, thank you man! I have been suffering for weeks without my ringtone working and your post made my ringer work! You are awesome!

  • After the MM update ringtone is there only for sim 1 calls, all sim 2 calls are in silent mode is there a way to fix this?! I checked the alert slider its all the way down and shows all notification but still no sound for sim2 incoming calls ….

    • After MM update on one plus 2, I lost incoming ring for both sim and most of other notifications like Alarm, whatsapp call etc. I tried to minimizing the alert slider and maximizing to max, changed all ringtones etc. But notifications / ring tones are not back up. Very much frustrated unless I’m doing something terribly wrong.

      Any one else faced similar issue, any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks.

  • Led notification not working after update… it works while I put my phone on charge .. msg led are not working….??

  • I can’t download ,share,calling,in my what’s app in my one plus two..draw application setting also not working…in my one plus 2 mobile..

  • Oh. . This Is one plus 2!

  • Can someone give more details as to how to work around the no ringtone issue?
    1.)Push notification slider to “silent”.
    2.)Push notification slider to “all notifications”

    How do we do the above steps in details… thanks…. been missing a lot of calls lately….

    • On the left side of the phone, there’s a switch. Slide it all the way to put it to ‘Silent’. And slide it all the way down again to bring it back to ‘All Notifications’.

    • see if it helps…..
