    Hi all,
    by mistake I bought a CN version of the OnePlus 7 (I am a German user. I know, I shouldn't have done this, but now it happened. As I said by mistake. If I had been more careful when reading the description of the article, I wouldn't have done this). In different articles I read, that it's rather easy to change from HydrogenOS (pre-installed on Chinese versions) to OxygenOS, which I am used to from my earlier OnePlus mobile phones. I also read, that, if you change, you should use the FULL version file, not the OTA versions to flash. Is the version, provided in the support/download area here on OPs website, the full version, even if it hat an "OTA" in the file name? Or where do I find the "full" version?
    Thanks for you help!

    Two more questions (once I got hold on you :D):
    1) Do you have any experience changing the OS? Is it really that easy?
    2) As i mentioned, I found some "instructions" how to update, but they are mostly for 7Pro, leave some open questions or miss details. Do you have a link to some real good step-by-step instruction?

    1) I just have the experience for changing between Beta and Official Version on my OP3 (and LOS). It is easy. Always do a factory reset after flashing and setup the phone as a new phone.
    2)This doesn't matter :) It works for all devices :)
