OnePlus 6 update to fix bootloader flaw is rolling out

OnePlus 6 OxygenOS OnePlus has released a fix for the OnePlus 6 bootloader vulnerability

To recall, earlier this week, a vulnerability on the OnePlus 6 bootloader was found that could potentially let an attacker boot a modified firmware image without unlocking the bootloader. The first big fix for this update pertains to the bootloader vulnerability uncovered by a security researcher last week. It has been patched with an updated bootloader, so users are advised to install this update as soon as possible. This means that if someone had physical access to your OnePlus 6 and a connection to a PC, they could take control of your OnePlus 6. It's a very risky bug and it's great that it has been fixed so quickly. There are some other changes too.

We will be releasing 5.1.8 update next week which will include the fix & also contain all the features included in the 5.1.7 update.

We received some reports from users in India that they had experienced stability issues with Oxygen OS 5.1.6 update, we have paused the rollout of this OTA.

OnePlus is now pushing out another update to its flagship OnePlus 6. It also improves the Do Not Disturb functionality. Now it seems that, hopefully, users will be able to set more than one at a time for different days. Other than that, the update mentions some general bug fixes and improvements. There isn't a whole lot more to the update and the changelog is pretty short. As is fairly obvious, the visible changes will be small, since the update does not bring any new features or UI changes to the device at all. Enter your email to be subscribed to our newsletter.
