Step 1. Download the either the OTA update file, or the Full ROM update file, from above. OTA is small, but requires stock recovery and v2.0.2 installed already on your OnePlus 2. While, Full ROM is flashable through both stock recovery and custom recovery like TWRP and CWM.
Step 2. Transfer the downloaded update file to your OnePlus 2. Remember its location. (You can also download the update directly on phone, in which case, it should be in download folder.)
Step 3. Boot your OnePlus 2 into recovery mode:
- Power off your OnePlus 2. Wait for 6-7 seconds after screen goes off.
- Press and hold Power + Volume up together until you see anything on screen.
- Use volume buttons to bring up recovery option at the top of the screen.
- And then press Power button to select recovery option. That’s it you’ll boot into recovery mode.
Step 4. Install the update. Use the instruction for your recovery.
- In 3e recovery, use volume buttons to navigate to ‘install update ..’ option and then press power button to select it.
- Now, select the update file that you transferred to OnePlus 2 in step 2 above. Confirm this and Oxygen OS 2.0.1 update will be installed on your device.

Points to be noted as regards OnePlus 2 Oxygen OS 2.1.1 update:
- Well, if you got TWRP, the above OTA update won’t flash. You need Stock recovery for OTA update.
- Also, you need to have bootloader locked OnePlus 2 to be able to flash the OTA, whether you downloaded it from above or as a system update.
- So, unless you have bootloader locked OnePlus 2 with stock recovery, you cannot install the Oxygen OS 2.1.1 OTA update.
- (Update: Full ROM zip available now!) You can wait for full ROM of Oxygen OS 2.1.1 to come out, in which case it will installation via TWRP, bootloader locked or not.
