General bug fixes
As always, this OTA will be incremental. The OTA will reach a small percentage of users today, and we'll begin a broader rollout in a few days.
Users who have installed the Facebook or Facebook Messenger App, you will need to manually give storage permission to both the apps or else it will crash while using the phone's camera.
Apart from all the goodness of Android Marshmallow like battery optimizations with Doze Mode and App Permissions, OnePlus
is bringing its own flavor too. As OnePlus X gets Android Marshmallow, it will also receive new icon packs for the launcher, Google search bar UI customization, new backgrounds, and new Alert Slider settings.
