    Can anyone please help me I got my OP6 from China I been having problem of switching from Hydrogen OS to Oxygen OS, I have try all the steps recommended at the oneplus site, when I download the latest Oxygen 6.
    I manage to get the oxygen 6 into my root dir, when I try to load by going to system update then local update, it said the version of your selected package is lower then that of the current system (my current OS is the original hydrogen that comes with OP6).
    Please help

    What is the HydrogenOS version when you bought yours? I aslo bought mine in China , 5.1.3 I think thus when I Ioad 5.1.5 via local upgrade it works.. If yours is already 5.1.5, if the above video did not work, I suggest just wait for OxygenOS 5.1.6 which will be released soon..

    with this method you put the op6 with the stock firmware (chinese version) and then upgrade the OS...

    oneplus release same update version for hydrogen OS and Oxygen OS, so if you are on latest hydrogen OS then it is not possible to switch over to Oxygen OS.

    if you r not update your hydrogen OS and it is on that version which is on first version came with new phone then

    download latest Oxygen OS version i.e. 5.1.6 fullbrom from oneplus website and copy it to your phone memory root.

    activate devoloper mode then on advance reboot.

    now reboot your phone via recovery mode option.

    go language english.

    wipe all data.

    now go to local update you will find the full rom in zip format.

    select it.

    after update and install reboot it. enjoy new Oxygen OS.

    You need to follow the unbrick method using an OxygenOS pack...

    Extracted from OP6 News spanish channel:

    UNBRICK para OP6:

    Este pack deja el OP6 de fabrica con OxygenOS.

    Link a a la descarga del pack UNBRICK del OP6:

    Las instrucciones de instalación son las mismas que en OPs anteriores. Link al hilo con instrucciones:

    NOTA: Esto elimina toda la información del teléfono y lo deja tal cual vino de fábrica, con el bootloader cerrado.

    So this might be able to help most of you. I had run into a similar issue, updating my Chinese bought OP6 and failing to switch to Oxygen OS. But I found a way to do it easily though it involves downloading 2 firmware files.
    Here is how:

    1. Follow the below thread for an upgrade to Android P Beta. The same thread provides a rollback file to OxygenOS

    That's it! I am now on Oxygen

    [QUOTE = "F1521878893427, сообщение: 19490699, участник: 1445516"] 1. Перейдите на сайт OnePlus
    если вы используете браузер телефона Поддержка -> Обновление программного обеспечения -> выберите свой телефон -> Загрузить

    2. включить режим разработчика
    Настройки -> о телефоне -> нажмите на версию сборки 3 раза

    3. включить расширенную перезагрузку
    настройки -> система -> параметры разработчика -> расширенная перезагрузка -> вкл

    4. Установка
    Настройки -> Система -> Обновления системы -> Настройки в правом верхнем углу -> Локальное обновление -> Выберите загруженный файл

    5. Перезагрузитесь в режим восстановления
    нажмите кнопку питания -> восстановление

    6. Протрите данные и кеш
    в режиме восстановления выберите язык -> стереть данные и кеш и перезагрузить

    7. Заводские настройки [/ QUOTE]

    Этот метод работает для OnePlus 6t !??!?!?!?!
