  • OnePlus 6 is getting an update to fix the bootloader flaw

The OTA update will be rolled out to all OnePlus 6 devices in a phased manner and will come with an updated bootloader for boosting the system security, which previously gave hackers access to the phone easily. We are in contact with the security researcher, and a software update will be rolling out shortly.

OnePlus is rolling out the latest OTA OxygenOS 5.1.7 update for its OnePlus 6, first to offer strictly bug fixes and security enhancements.

The OnePlus 6 is about to receive a third OTA update, merely weeks after its release.

History made as VAR used to give France a (controversial?) penalty
GK Mat Ryan, 6 - Beaten by a Griezmann penalty and an unlucky deflection off Paul Pogba, but otherwise a solid performance. It is that giving the ball up so easily and so often will usually come at a price against truly world-class players.

Last week, OnePlus rolled out OxygenOS 5.1.6 update for the OnePlus 6 that brought Portrait Mode for the front camera while also adding battery percentage in Status Bar and VoLTE support for Idea Cellular. There aren't too many major changes in this one as far as function and features are concerned, with the biggest change being a fix for the bootloader security issue. It is also coming with all the features of the v5.1.7. The company in its blog post said that the OxygenOS 5.1.6 update had caused stability issues for users in India, and that the update rollout had been paused.

Meanwhile, OnePlus 6 owners in the rest of world are advised to update their device to the OxygenOS 5.1.7 as early as possible.

The update is rolling out incrementally, as is the custom for OnePlus, and should reach you within the next few days. They stated that OxygenOS 5.1.8 will be available next week to address those issues which will also include the contents of version 5.1.7.
