    I am trying to find detailed instructions on how to move from the regular oxygen build to the open beta program but found nothing clear.

    Can anyone kindly explain the procedure clearly for someone who doesn't know what "rooting" is? From downloading to installation instructions.

    I'd highly appreciate it
    thanks!

    I hope this link will help you to easily switch to desired version.

    How about being kind and explaining? I used the search function, I read a few threads but most were too technical or derived in different things

    The way I did it was, I downloaded the beta from downloads.oneplus.net. Download it on your computer of course, then connect your phone to your computer. Put the download into your phones internal storage. Do not need to put it into a folder in the storage. Boot your phone into recovery by holding volume down and the power button until the recovery screen comes up. Hit the right button, usually the multitasking button to switch it to English. Pick update from internal and pick the file. It will then update and reboot.

    You're welcome! I enjoy the quick updates and added features vs the stable. I have not experienced any bugs yet either. I do not regret it one bit, I say go for it.

    I did. Does it make so angry because I didn't succeed in finding it?
    Instead of scolding me like a kid trying to teach me a lesson, save your arrogance and you could've saved us both this waste of time and post this links from the beginning. Is it that hard just to be kind?

    How hard was that thread to find? It's literally the first pinned thread here, but no, you created your own thread and think you get everything on silver plate, some people...

    Again search, how many threads about "How to join Beta" or "How to get Beta" you'll find from this first page alone?
    And the main Beta thread is first and pinned...
    But no, "I needs me own thread" :rolleyes::confused:

    Again search before making thread, you might (well might) learn something, doubt it, but...
