Oneplus One gets OpenSSL bug fix , resumes shipping

For many , the OnePlus One was vaporware , and after the recent delay , many  potential buyers gave up on the idea of buying the phone because of the long waiting list and disappointment over its actual existence , but now ,Oneplus has officially stated that they will start delivery of the units for the first batch of sent invites after a software fix from Cyanogenmod was issued yesterday . The recent software update patched up a new OpenSSL bug that was discovered on the 5th of June .The Oneplus one runs on a AOSP(Android Opensource platform) version of Android 4.4 which offer a ton of customizations which are not available on Stock Android devices .,The phone which is powered by a Snapdragon 801 processor competes with rival smartphone brands by offering it at a cut price of $299 for the 16GB version and $349 for the 64GB version , that being said , the phone is extremely difficult to buy mainly because of the invite system which requires you to either beg for a invite from a friend , family or some random person in the forums or wait for Oneplus to mail a invite for you  , the mailing system depends on how well you performed in the Oneplus forums and the date you joined in, Personally I was expecting a to get my hands on one , and was a well known member since April , but gave up on the idea after learning that taxes for getting it shipped to my country might send the basic model to a price of around $400 (the Oneplus One shipping costs in the first launch countries cost $15 , but others outside might have to resort to getting it shipped via a courier service or a relative living in the first  launch countries )
