    I've had to factory reset my phone 3 times so far today. it seems to crash every few times there is a phone call.

    A few weeks back (2-3) my phone started slowing down. then last week, audio stopped working sometimes. a few days ago (2-5) people stopped being able to hear me on phone calls. 2 days ago my phone started shutting down for no reason whatsoever and the shutdowns near locked me out of my phone. Today I could hardly use my phone at all and have had to factory reset just to be able to use my phone for about half an hour at a time. while I assume this has something to do with the new oxygen OS, I can't be sure.

    will do!

    I'm not sure if it's an app, though: I've factory reset my phone, clearing all data and apps, and not installed anything. even with that the problem persists (albeit much less frequently).

    my current plan is to slowly go adding in apps (over the course of several days) to see if any of them exasperate the problem.

    I don't think it's an app Martin. I would suggest to try to install another official rom. If you are running oreo beta, try the stable, if you are on oreo stable, try to go back to nougat.
    I have not heard any complains from my girlfriend who is using my OP3 that I fixed the other day, so that may also be something you can try if nothing else works.

    Edit: just had my girlfriend call me from the OP3, and it turns out the phone is not fixed. I could not hear her, and she didn't hear me. I have an OP5, and I know that is working fine.

    Okai, so when I tried to reboot the phone, the Dirac thingy is stopping, eventually sending me to recovery for factory reset again. I can not use the phone at all, as Dirac is stopping right after SIM unlock.
    Downloading custom ROM right now (Pixel experience 8.1.0), will try that and get back here with results.

    Have anyone been in contact with OnePlus about this issue?

    I had the same problem with continuous reboots and dirac crashes. I sent the phone in free assistance (it's under warranty) and it came back after 2 days in perfect working order. they replaced my motherboard

    I have also applied for a RMA, but I got to send it to a family member in the UK first, as that is where I bought it, and I live in Norway. Oneplus doesn't sell in Norway.
    Did you send it in, or personally handed it over in a store/service center?

    In short:
    Delete Dirac and replace with Viper4Android

    1 Root device
    2 Explore root directory and delete Dirac
    3 Install Viper4Android sound system


    If you need any clarifications please just reply here or email me I'll be most happy to help! :D

    I tried a bunch of ROMS all gave the Dirac error... FInally Oxygen OS 4.5.1 gave me no error (but no sound as well) . So I installed that then was able to complete the dirac replacement.

    I'm still trying to figure out a way to make the dirac replacement in Oreo

    I had my phone for repair because of this. They change the earpiece. I could not test the phone until today, and it turns out that there is no improvement. The phone reboots to recovery once it boots into system. Im tired of this...
