New OxygenOS Open beta for OnePlus 3 & 3T patches the BlueBorne vulnerability


OnePlus has released new OxygenOS Open Beta 24 and Open Beta 15 for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T respectively. 

The new beta update brings soft screen calibration mode (can be enabled from display settings), new boot animations, updated community app and optimization to recent apps clearing, along with some bug fixes. 

OnePlus has also fixed the recently discovered blueborne vulnerability with their own patch, independent of the Android security update. Therefore, some blueborne vulnerability scanners may not recognize their independent patch.

For the uninitiated, the Blueborne threat was detected by IoT security firm Armis Labs, and states "BlueBorne is an attack vector by which hackers can leverage Bluetooth connections to penetrate and take complete control over targeted devices...The attack does not require the targeted device to be paired to the attacker’s device." 

Here is the change-log for the latest Open Beta build
System:

  • Added "Soft" screen calibration
    • We’ve reverted the screen calibration and added the new calibration from last build as “soft.” You can enable the new calibration in the "display> screen" calibration section of settings
  • New boot animation
  • Optimized the clearing of recent apps
 Other: 
  • Updated Community app to V1.9.5
  • Minor bug fixes
The new OxygenOS beta download size weighs at 84MB and is rolling out over-the-air to OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T units that are already on previous beta build. Others will have to manually update their device to the latest beta by downloading the full ROM from http://downloads.oneplus.net/
