The description of Oxygen Updater
** ONLY WORKS ON SUPPORTED DEVICES. See https://oxygenupdater.com for a list of supported devices and https://oxygenupdater.com/faq for frequently asked questions.**
You always wanted to run the latest software versions. You bought a device with a great operating system - which is intuitive and offers a lot of customization options. There is however one big catch: You have to wait until it's your turn to get your system updated to the latest Oxygen*(1) OS / Android version....
Well: as of now, the wait is over!
With Oxygen Updater, you will be among the first users to update your Oxygen OS device to the latest and greatest software version, for free!
Oxygen Updater allows you to be the first to view information about Oxygen OS System updates, and directly install*(2) them to your device. No more waiting until you get the system update notification after a few weeks, just update whenever a new update is released. (requires an active internet connection).
When a new update becomes available, you'll receive a notification of it. You may then open the app to download and install*(2) your new system update.
Additionally, this app provides a short overview about your device specs, including your current Android and Oxygen OS version, the amount of memory (RAM), the security patch date and the processor in your device.
During the initial launch, you will be asked to select your device and your update method. These are usually set to the right values, but you are free to change them according to your likings.
There are three different update methods:
- Full update: An update package that always works - regardless of your current OS version. However, these updates are very large to download. Only recommended if you have root access, because in that case the incremental updates are incompatible.
- Incremental update: Incremental update packages are smaller update packages that are built to only update the current system version of your device. These updates are much smaller to download and are therefore recommended when not having root access.
- Community edition (betas): Are you running the community edition of OxygenOS? Then you can also install updates using this app. Especially handy for users with root access. *(3)
