    @Donald Nice, please add information to the FAQ about OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition, and I don't mean the 5G version exclusive by T-Mobile. Occasionally one can find questions, whether you lose specific McLaren features (boot animation, icons, theme etc) if you flash beta rom or jump from Hydrogen Os to Oxygen Os...
    1. Will I lose McLaren features if I flash Oxygen Os from Hydrogen Os? - Nope.
    2. Will I lose McLaren features if I flash beta rom? - Nope.
    3. Will I lose them if I update the beta rom? - Nope.
    4. Will I lose McLaren features if I revert back from beta to stable? - Nope.
    5. Are the roms (stable/beta) for the ordinary 7T Pro compatible and the same for the 7T Pro McLaren Edition (NOT the 5G by T-Mobile)? - Yes.
    6. Should I look for the separate/specific roms (stable/beta) for the 7T Pro McLaren Edition (NOT the 5G by T-Mobile)? - Nope.

    Sure, but at this time this is for 7T only, not 7TP / McLaren.. I planned to add it but i need much mor information about the devices to be as complete as the infos for 7T. I would be glad if i find someone owning and using the 7tp and 7tp McL, who will help me out with this.

    Your help is needed:

    I am looking for experienced users who own a Oneplus 7TP or McLaren-Edition to extend this FAQ to these devices. If any of you are interested in helping me out, please contact me.

    Having one.

    Literally there is no big difference, all the beta roms work without losing McLaren features, without a problem.

    @Donald Nice
    This is a very good thread. However, I noticed #10 is not entirely correct, specifically this part:
    You are correct about how incremental builds work, but there are incremental builds that will take you from (for example) v2 to v4 directly. Of course, each incremental build will only work for the specific source and target versions.

    In the context of Oxygen Updater, we usually add incremental ZIPs only for the latest 1-2 builds, because by our usage metrics, most people are already on these latest builds. However, for the older versions, we link the full ZIP instead.

    So for example, if there are v1, v2, v3, v4, and v5 builds so far for you device, we'll add incremental ZIPs only for v4 -> v5 and maybe for v3 -> v5. The rest will be linked to the full ZIP, so that the small number of people who're still on older versions can update to the latest builds same as everyone else.

    That way, it doesn't matter which update method you've selected (full or incremental) - using Oxygen Updater will always ensure you're on the latest available build for your device.

    PS: We recommend using the full update method if your bootloader is unlocked, or you're rooted. Incremental ZIPs do not work in such cases, as the system needs the full ZIP to update such devices.
    If your bootloader is locked AND your device isn't rooted, it's much better to choose the incremental update method, as that usually means you have a relatively small file to download (thus saving valuable bandwidth).

    Sorry but this thread is intended to discuss the general questions to flashing and not to discuss problems of individual builds. Please use the specific thread to discuss that.
