    IMPORTANT UPDATE (November 7):

    For those that received the 11.0.1.1 update but haven't restarted the phone yet, the software team has prepared a solution to avoid data loss.
    1. Install this apk. You need to install it after the update was installed but before you restart.
    2. After the apk is installed, run the application, click "KEEP DATA".
    3. You should now be able to restart the phone without losing your data.
    Still, we would advise you to back up essential data before you restart the device.

    Please keep in mind that this is beta software. These builds are sometimes not as stable as our official OTAs generally are. By installing this update, you accept the potential risks. For those who were on previous versions for OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, we appreciate your active feedback and for reaching out to us. With your help, we have been able to better optimize and improve several key areas. Thank you for your patience and as always, we look forward to getting your continued feedback via the Community app.

    If you don't have the Community app installed on your device, feel free to download it HERE. You can check here for more information on the integrated Feedback tool.

    Please note:
    • If you have already flashed an Open Beta (you are currently running the latest Open Beta), you will receive this new build as an OTA.
    • If you are not running open beta software and would like to, please refer to the flashing instructions and the full ROM on the downloads page here.
    • Once you migrate to the Beta path, you will continue to receive Open Beta OTAs. You will no longer receive the regular Official Stable OTAs.
    • Moving back to the Official OTA path from the Beta path will require a full install and clean flash (full wipe of all data and cache).
    Make sure to let us know how you feel about the beta builds here in the thread too. We are watching.

    Never Settle.

    NOTICE

    It seems like some users are reporting receiving the Stable update over the Open Beta 3, leading to a full data wipe. This information was already shared with the the software team so it can be checked and addressed. Meanwhile, if you receive an update OTA, please double-confirm if it's an Open Beta update. If it isn't, please DO NOT install it.

    We strongly suggest you to backup your key data via a cloud service, perform a full backup via OnePlus Switch, and transfer it to a computer or a USB drive for double insurance.

    Just upgraded from Open Beta 2 TO 3, my question is that the next OTA for OB3 can upgrade to Official stable version? Or we will stop at the OB3 unless we do the full wipe?

    The screenshot option has disappeared from the power button menu, a new layout prevails.

    It looks like the only option to activate the screenshot is to use the three finger swipe.

    We have now 3 rows of toggles instead of 2.
    Not a word about that in the changelog. In the Open Beta 2 we have only 2 rows of toggles. Who write this changelogs? Screenshot_20201027-195654.jpg
