    I've not read up on the specifics but it's probably at least somewhat related to the encryption issues OnePlus themselves encountered when converting Android 11 into OOS11.

    Developers tend to put their time into devices they can get the most out of, the 7T just isn't a nice phone to work with by most accounts.

    TWRP oxygen os encryption does not work. New types of bootloader introduced in Android 10 and OP developers hastily released broken firmware just to get the tag of "Android 10 out of the box" .

    It was known from the day one by OP, still they launched the device.... Problem is they never fixed it, not even to this day.

    Well, it could have been an another story for custom rom if they had fixed the Google keystore implementation.

    Thing is, resurrection remix works awesome and so is the derpfest.... Thanks to closed source Chinese TWRP .

    You are right. Official PixelExperience ROM provides OTA updates. It happens monthly on my Pixel 2 XL. It is really strange, that for the OnePlus 7T there is not available any official custom ROM. I don't know why, because 7T devices have the same processor as 7T Pro, so...

    I don't think so, that the reason is the data encryption issue, because AFAIK it has affect only during device updates, not when the new ROM is loading for device that has been restored to the factory settings.

    AFAIK the CarbonROM is quite good, and the current version for your device is 8.0, based on Android 11. I don't have the OP7 device, so I didn't tested it.

    The changelog for CarbonROM 8.0 is here: https://carbonrom.org/carbonrom/changelog/

    Hmmm... but PixelExperience doesn't use the TWRP. It has its own recovery image. What's wrong with Pixel Experience? I'm using it on my Google Pixel 2XL device and it works perfectly for me.

    I'm using PixelExperience ROM in my Google Pixel 2XL device and it works perfectly. 😉 I think it should work fine also for 7T, but you know, it depends on the kernel version. Unfortunately I don't have any feedback from my friends, but only from the XDA. As I can see, people are writing there that it's the best custom ROM for 7T. 🙂

    Yeah... I know, I know. I was using LineageOS in a few devices, but currently the PixelExperience is more attractive for me, because it's a credible copy of the ROM for Google Pixel devices with all their features. 🙂

    How to install ADB and Fastboot

    I know most of us know well how to install and use Android Platform Tools, but for novice users I'm attaching a short installation guide.

    M$ Windows:
    1. Download the SDK Platform Tools ZIP package for Windows from the official Android website: https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-windows.zip
    2. Extract the contents of the ZIP file to the top of the partition (eg. C:\platform-tools)
    3. Open up the Command Prompt or PowerShell window, and go to the extracted folder (eg. cd C:\platform-tools)
    4. Check if ADB is working fine: adb version. You should be able to see the current ADB version. That's all.
    Linux:
    1. Install the appropriate package. For Debian, use the command: sudo apt install android-sdk-platform-tools. For Arch Linux or Manjaro, use the command: sudo pacman -S android-tools.
    2. Open the console app and check if ADB is working fine: adb version. You should be able to see the current ADB version. That's all.
