Cobalt/cyberpunk watch faces after global ROM flashing via OnePlus Community App

    Hi guys
    I bought the Cobalt edition and want to flash the global version. Does anybody know if the special watch faces (cobalt / cyberpunk) remaim after the flashing?

    P.s
    I wanted to publish this post under the oneplus watch section but i cannot select this category 🤷

    It's posted in the correct section. I thought there was only one global watch rom?

    I would ask OnePlus support directly, because I think no one in forums has tried it :)

    Thanks for the reply. Its a bit weird, hope someone can clarify. The watch description i bought says its a CN version (pairs only with the HeyTap app since its a CN version), but someone here on the forum bought the watch in India and his watch works out of the box with the OnePlus Health app, so there must be some sort of global ROM for the Cobalt edition as well.

    This gets even weirder because when i first asked an online rep about flashing another ROM he said its impossible and when i sent him a link to a post in the forum with a flashing guide he changed his opinion and said it can be done and all the cobalt watch faces will remain. That's why i want to hear from someone who underwent this procedure and lived to tell the tale.

    Maybe he doesn't want you to brick you watch in doing so or was he a support representative!

    I asked him to verify if its an official oneplus guide and ifits safe. He said its safe, so don't think there's a failure option

    I don't have personal experience with it, but I believe I read in the forum a couple of people lamenting the fact that they had lost their special watch faces by flashing the global ROM.

    That makes sense, It was the same last year when people flashed the global build on the Cyberpunk 8T. They lost the skin.

    I flashed my cobalt Edition, and the watchfaces are gone. While flashing, you can only choose between the standard Black or silver Version.

    Thanks for the input. Did you use the guide someone has posted here? What color did you choose? Everything works fine and the watch receives updates?

    Hey undroid, yes, i used the Guide i found here. Seemed to be a Guide from oneplus itself. I flashed the midnight Black Version, and i had no Problems with Updates etc. Only point which annoyed me, is the missing watchface

    Cool. I emailed the guys who are behind this guide, hopefully they can provide additional information about the global version of the Cobalt edition 🤷

    No update, they don't answer anymore. I flashed a global ROM by this guide and lost the special watch faces, but i don't really care about them.

    Was it worth it? I'm planning to get a galaxy watch 4 replacing my cobalt, but still unsure about this.

    Do you find any bugs or issues when you flashed to global rom?

    In my opinion its worth it since now i can use the OnePlus Health app and not the Chinese heytap + Spotify integration and navigation. I think at the current version b67 there's a bug with the heart rate monitoring, i see some weird spikes to 120-140 from time to time. I don't really care about this and this will probably be fixed in the next version

    I was just thinking if its possible to add Cyberunk theme laterto already flashed cobalt model. This would be cool.
    I realy like the specialedition of that watch, especilaytheJohny Silverand charge unit.
    Is theremouch of the difference between heytap vs Oneplus health?
