    Is there a way to go from One Beta_35 on OnePlus 6 (which is the last beta build) to the most recent stable build of OnePlus 6 without the loss of data/factory reset?

    Hi there, moving from beta to stable will always wipe the data.
    Taking a backup and later restoring is the only option available.

    Directly flash the stable build over the beta build. You shouldn't lose any data as the stable build is newer than the Beta build. Did the same, and didn't lose any data

    Hello Man,

    Can you please connect with me personally to guide me for the same. I don't want to risk losing my data.

    This is not the way to do it... You should always use the rollback zip when going from beta to stable...
    There is always a risk of losing data... and "dirty flashing" isn't the correct way to do it... Backup your data always, better safe than sorry!

    I know that. But I was in the process of switching between phones, and had transferred all the data to my new phone. So I thought of trying it out. And it worked.
    I will always suggest rollback to stable as the first option, but considering the above user just isn't willing to do that, I told him that this would work as well

    But with that process there is still risk of losing data... There is always a risk of that when messing with software.
    So either way, always backup :)

    That's true. Thankfully, I have everything in my phones always backed up to my Google Account :)
