    Hi guys,

    We all know this tends to happen around here every year (and this year it seems that it's starting even earlier). Most people can't wait to try the new Android dessert, and usually don't deal that great with the lack of ETA's*, so they tend to try and get a precise date for when the update will arrive. The issue here is that probably no one can really tell that, not even the dev team working on it.

    Software isn't exactly something you can say, "I will start working on it today to get the update ready in X days", it takes time and effort and has always lots of unpredictable situations. That's why you usually don't see ETA's for software updates, except some sort of vague suggestions like "Late fall" or that sort of stuff.

    So please, avoid asking a question no one will be able to answer, in the end is just like asking for lottery numbers, everyone will be able to make a prediction, but the actual result is almost impossible to guess.

    The only right answer for this will be:

    "The update will come when ready, and not a day before."

    Besides that, the only exercise that I think it's acceptable to do is to look to what Oneplus did last years with the updates and extrapolate to what it may happen this year. But even that is just pure guessing. So please, let's all try and let the devs do their work and don't flood the forum with the same question over and over. In the end you will be helping on keeping this community cleaner (therefor easy to follow to everyone) and also the moderators sanity.

    This thread will be pinned and closed (because there isn't really that much to discuss about an ETA that no one knows when will come), and all threads created to ask about this will be closed and get a duplicate content warning.

    If you want to talk about Android Pie in general, you can use this thread:


    Thanks for everyone help on making this community even better.

    *ETA - Estimate time of arrival, for those who don't know.

    EDIT 1:

    Yes, the Android Pie was officially launched by google on the 6 of August, but that doesn't really change anything since it still needs to be prepared for the rest of the devices by every brand.

    EDIT 2:

    Latest update about the status to bring Pie Update to the op5/T.

    EDIT 3:

    Update (30/11/2018)

    Again, Starting a new thread about asking software updates will be considered SPAM, liable for warnings/bans.

    Hey everyone,

    Many of you have tagged me and sent me PM asking about an ETA for PIE OBT update for OnePlus 5/5T, hoping this post will give some clarity on the update status.

    We have been testing Pie build for OnePlus 5/5t on our closed beta stream since last month, and our Closed beta testers have reported many potential bugs and feedback which we have been working on, to make sure that you get an open beta build that's stable enough to be used as a daily driver.

    Compatibility Test Suite(CTS) is just another step in a long process, before releasing a build we also need to make sure it is Google Play certified, and all this does take time to be processed and an ETA is not something we can promise cause there could be changes in release date due to one of this steps failing or getting delayed and various other factors related to QT

    we are working to make sure you get to experience PIE on your beloved OnePlus 5/5T as soon as possible, kindly bear with us Pie is almost baked ..thank you for your patience

    Stable OTA update will be released when it is ready. As always, there is no ETA.
    Use the existing Pie thread (link in the first post) for any pie related discussion.
    Any new thread created about this will be closed and warned according to the forum rules.

    This xmas day had an extra sweet for the op5/T users, the stable Pie update is out, and the gradual rollout has started.

    I will focus on this part, of Manu post.

    "As always, this OTA will be incremental. The OTA will reach a small percentage of users today, and we'll begin a broader rollout in a few days."

    So as always, no need to open threads asking when it will arrived to x place and such. ;) Its a gradual thing, so one just need to wait.
