    blueseeker6, Dec 28, 2018 :
    To whom it may concern,

    I have a OnePlus 6t McLaren Edition from China which is currently in Hydrogen OS.

    Is there a tutorial on how to convert this to run Oxygen OS?

    Thanks.

    Best Regards,
    Nico

    Thanks but I also read somewhere in this forum that the OP6T Maclaren edition has a different dump from a regular OP6T.

    Has anyone used this local upgrade with their Maclaren edition 6t's yet?

    I've never seen a thread about what you expect to achieve, since the McLaren version has different HW on the charging port I bet it has to be different binaries, I do think OnePlus support could help you with that. Maybe contact them directly (through the main page, not the forum)

    This is going to become an issue. I heartily agree, Oneplus need to look into it asap, as people being people, folks are going to brick phones left, right and center. Carelessness on users part, yes. But OP should have seen this was going to happen.
    @Manu J. I know this sort of thing isn't really your problem but the naive and careless will brick their phones methinks.

    I've seen a lot of users bricking their phones in xda forums as well.

    Carelessness. The phone is just out. Why mess with it?

    To be honest Hydrogen OS is not that bad. I have a flat mate that has the regular OP6T that is on Oxygen OS. So we compared but couldn't see much difference besides the Google apps are baked in the Oxygen OS.

    It's just a matter of waiting for devs to work it out or only tinker with a new phone if you have a very, very solid knowledge of what you're doing.
    Why break what, as you have just said, isn't broken?

    I tried he suggested but when I was about to install using 'local upgrade', there was an error saying, "The version of your selected package is lower than that of the current system. To avoid booting up failure, downgrading is not allowed".


    I am currently on Hydrogen OS version 9.0.11.


    I have replied to OnePlus with my query last Tuesday but still waiting for their response.
