    Changing your phone region will also change other things to the phone,like what type of signal will use or how will it connect to the internet,there is a reason why there are different updates for different regions

    Dual SIM is blocked at hardware level for in2025 so it won't make a difference if you flash from global to EU, as above it may affect other things, there is no advantage to flashing a firmware for a hardware problem.

    Sorry for delay! I have the IN2013 version(eu) but the firmware was global so that's the first motivation in doing this upgrade. Second, Oneplus 8 and the pro version doesn't have 5G activated yet, although some phone carriers implemented this technology in my country(Romania). Now with the eu firmware installed in my eu version phone, I hope there are more chances to get that 5G software update from Oneplus(I understand that this tech needs time, but it's equally true that I bought a 5G phone to use as a 5G phone - maybe somebody here will hear this request).

    The same for me, 5G in Czech available for my provider (EU version of the phone IN2013 - as original without any changes) but no settings for 5G. (Currently using OBT2 - Android 11)

    Start sound like my former phone from Samsung (BT 5.0 built in but not active for several months in the firmware)
