    After the new OS 11 Update my BSNL 4G sim's signal comes and goes every 30 sec . I also did some trouble shooting but it didn't work. I tried the sim on other OnePlus Device that I own and the sim worked perfectly fine. So I think there is issue with the new update . Please help me . And also tell me how to fix this issue.

    How to downgrade to older version from Android 11 OnePlus 8 Pro ?

    Seriously I need old version as Android 11 has infinity bugs in all the apps.

    How to downgrade without losing data

    There is no lossless way to rollback. Do backups with Oneplus Switch of the stuff you don't want to loose. Copy to computer. Rollback. Copy back. Restore.
    Avoid backup of stuff you do don't need and that can perhaps cause issues. Like all settings and stuff.
    Use internal backup features of some apps if you need it. The backup does not copy back app data just reinstalls it.
    I don't use backups at all myself. All media files are synced with Onedrive anyway in my case. And most stuff that matters are handled by the apps themselfs.
    My guess is that next 11 update is not far away. My recommendation is that you might try to hold on some time and do a clean install after next update. Copy back any data you need afterwards. Clean installs often fixes a few issues. (factory reset without using Google data restore during setup. In other words start as new device).
    Either way a wipe will happen regardless of rollback or clean install to avoid some upgrade issues.

    OnePlus has not given any solution for the affected users who lost their data due to the problem introduced by the latest update.

    Some user posts on the company's community forums also suggest that the OxygenOS update deactivated VoLTE and VoWi-Fi on OnePlus 8 Pro and impacted Web streaming experiences. Also effective error playstore security update, Some users who were already running an OxygenOS open beta additionally complained that they wrongly received the OxygenOS as a stable update that led to a full data wipe on their phones. Bubbles not working. 5g network with UAE country not working

    If data was lost due to rebooting and got the device wiped it's too late to do something. What can be done must be done BEFORE rebooting. And they gave us that solution.
    If people's data is critical and not replaceable it should have been backed up. Plenty of stuff that can result in data loss (stolen, drops, water damage, service errands, accidentally detecting the wrong stuff..). And the only thing that will save the data in many situations is backups. It does not really matter how the data is lost. Lost data will remain lost.

    Some users solved the VoLTE/VoWiFi issue by manually reset APN/network.

    I have failed to notice any comments about Play Store. Mostly heard that the play store issues people had in 11.0.0 was fixed.

    I can't replicate any strange bubble issues on beta 3. What exactly is your issues? Induvidual apps or all apps?

    Have you lost Auto 5G option or just the 5G not available?

    As most often most bugs does not apply to everyone. When it does... Why? What is the differance? What can be done differently? Does a clean install help?

    You may want to report your issues via the feedback tool.

    Try using your screen unlock pin or password.

    Just be careful that it doesn't want to wipe your data anyway.
