OnePlus has been actively pushing out firmware updates for its flagship smartphones recently and now the company has announced that it has started rolling out OxygenOS 4.0.2 update for its OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 3 smartphones.
Seeing this debug kernel notice isn’t a reassuring thing to see in your logs as these can sometimes be susceptible to attacks. However, OnePlus Mobile has confirmed with Android Central that this message is just an error and that it isn’t anything we should be worried about. The company has said the kernel used in OxygenOS is a “proper release kernel to match the consumer-ready software running on the phone.” OnePlus says this message was triggered by Systrace tools and that OnePlus is not using a debug kernel in their official releases.
OxygenOS 4.0.2 is headed to both the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T. That said, the rollout is incremental as always, meaning that only a small percentage of devices will be updated today, with a broader distribution coming in the next few days.
