Bug: Random reboots

There have been a number of complaints about random reboots with the OnePlus 2, and this is a problem we saw with the OnePlus One as well. There are a few things you can try:


  • A few people have suggested the problem goes away or is lessened when they turn Wi-Fi off or remove the SIM card. These are obviously not particularly useful solutions.

Potential solutions:

  • Make sure that you have the latest Oxygen software. It should roll out over the air, so just make sure you’re connected to Wi-Fi and update when prompted.
  • Incompatibility with an app might be the cause of your issue. If you notice that crashes or reboots occur frequently when you use a specific app, then try uninstalling it.
  • You could try a factory reset via Settings > Backup and reset > Reset, and then selectively reinstall apps, watching out for a recurrence as you do.
  • Contact OnePlus support. They should help you flash a new ROM and then arrange a replacement if that doesn’t work, but it may take a while.
