    Hey all,

    I have the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren from the EU. It's the HD1913 model and it has OxygenOS HD01BA.

    But when I look in Oxygen Updater. It says that the GLO package is installed?

    is this normal or is there anoter ROM for EU owners?

    Please see the included attachment.

    Kind regards,

    Radec

    Oxygen Updater is a third party app. For security reasons, don't use it. You don't know where the update is coming from and if someone has tampered with it.
    Download the update from Oneplus support site and do a manual update instead.

    1. It's unofficial,but supported by OnePlus
    2. It's open source,so if you don't belive that it doesn't tamper with the file,check the source code.
    3. It is actually more secure,since it cryptographycally verifies all downloads,wich you probabily don't do manually,when downloading from the OP website.

    1. No it is not supported by Oneplus. Nowhere is mentoined that Oneplus supports Oxygen Updater. The app is ad supported and has nothing to do with Oneplus.
    Take a look at *(1) here:

    Don't you think that oxygenupdater.com would have plastered their site with "Supported by Oneplus" if it was true?
    2. Just because it is opensource doesn't mean that it is secure. It still downloads the updates from the apps own backend server. And who can tell what has been done to the update there?

    3. The MD5 hash is on the Oneplus Support site. It is so easy to verify the hash from the download.
    There is a bunch of MD5 hash checkers:
