OnePlus 5 Now Receiving OxygenOS 4.5.14 Update With Fix for WPA2 KRACK Vulnerability

OnePlus has started rolling out the OxygenOS 4.5.14 update for the OnePlus 5. The over-the-air (OTA) update, which will be rolled out incrementally, includes a patch for the infamous WPA2 KRACK vulnerability that has affected a large number of devices around the globe.

As OnePlus mentions in a forum post, the OxygenOS 4.5.14 OTA update fixes the Wi-Fi WPA2 security vulnerabilities that can be exploited by KRACK (Key Reinstallation Attacks) attacks. The update also has optimisations on the fronts of battery usage and GPS accuracy, as well as some general bug fixes. Specifically for Indian and Chinese users, the new OxygenOS version has support for Airtel VoLTE and Band 66 of Freedom, respectively.

“For those who were on previous versions for OnePlus 5, we appreciate your active feedback and attempts to reach out to us. With your help, we have been able to better optimise and improve several key areas,” the company said in the forum post.

Being an ‘incremental’ OTA update, the new OxygenOS version would take some days to hit your OnePlus 5. The company has mentioned that the update is initially arriving for a small percentage of users and will reach a broader rollout in a few days.

The new update emerges few weeks after OnePlus released the OxygenOS 4.5.12 update to fix display issues. The latest version doesn’t bring any changes to the core Android package. However, a Geekbench listing was spotted in September that suggested the release of Android 8.0 Oreo for the OnePlus 5 in the coming days.
