OnePlus has also provided this helpful step-by-step guide about installing the update for users who've stayed back on Cyanogen, the operating system the OnePlus One first shipped with and recommends backing up all your data first.
OnePlus is one of the several Android phone makers trying to deal with Stagefright.
