    You don't have to be unlocked. I have an 8 pro I bought direct from OP and I'm also on TMobile. I get updates via Oxygen updater without issue. I'm currently on 11.0 2.2IN11AA. There should be a new update out soon.

    That's certainly your choice.

    I found OU years ago back when we had to use a vpn to change regions in order to get updates on the op3. OU made the process much simpler and negated the need to use a vpn.

    I've never had any trouble with ou and haven't heard of anyone who has. But again, it's certainly your choice whether you want to use a tool or not.

    I know that.
    Mine is also directly from OnePlus also and I still would never use the OnePlus updater.

    I always do the OTA

    I doubt many have had any issues but it's just not safe.
    I keep things tight on my device and a third party app doing OS updates and not an official OnePlus app is big flag for me. lol

    Where to download what?
    Oxygen updater app is in the playstore if that's what you are asking about.

    I think you'd find it's quite safe. They only use official files from OnePlus.

    But again, your choice.

    If you ever wish to learn more about the app, there's a discord channel for it.

    Just do a wipe cache pertition after installing a update. It sloves 90% of your problems

    I know all about it and the discord channel and I know you must think me odd oe weird for not using it, but maybe... just maybe, that's why I have not had any issues with my OnePlus device.

    I also keep third party apps to a minimum and fully shutdown and restart the device every three day's and before any OS updates, after updating all my apps.

    I do the same. My 8 pro is superb. No lag. No odd tint or display issues. 9 months old now.

    I respect your choice as long as you are knowledgeable about why you make those choices.

    I am an app-aholic and have a number of 3rd party apps installed, mostly from f-droid.

    My 8 pro is a delight to use. Except for that blasted curved screen!

    I rolled back to OOS 10 due to a number of bugs with 11.0.0.2. Particularly the battery. It was noticeably better, but still not amazing. There were still a few issues with 10 as well for me. Most notably, I could never get Lastpass persistent notification working. This is quite a pain when you need to go in and copy a username/password manually. The auto fill was very hit and miss too. It would also crash my browser (Brave).

    I finally decided to try a custom ROM. To do this, I had to upgrade once again to 11.0.0.2. I tested this ROM for a few days just to see if it would run any better, but nope. The battery life is still poor and the same bugs were present and noticeable. I never had issues with slowness on this ROM which others have complained about. It was purely battery life and some annoying bugs. Below is a quick comparison from my own personal experience with battery life across different ROMs.

    OOS 10.5.12
    Battery life: 6-7 hours Full HD / 120hz

    OOS 11.0.0.2
    Battery life:5-6 hours Full HD / 120hz

    Custom ROM (Not sure if I'm allowed to mention it)
    Battery life: 9-10 hours QHD+ / 120hz

    The difference here is astonishing. My usage was very, very similar across all devices. Note that I do not play games on my phone, so expecting 9 hours while gaming I wouldn't think is achievable. My battery saver kicks in at 40% but once again, this is the exact same for all ROMs.

    Absolutely no bugs whatsoever to report so far, after 3 days of use. No issues with YouTube auto rotate, delayed SMS, Lastpass persistent notification or browser crashes.

    This ROM also allows you to configure the slider however you want. So, instead of just silent, I can change this to DND. OnePlus had this feature but rather bizarrely, removed it. I find it really useful.

    The only issue with the ROM is that it disables Netflix HD due to the unlocked Bootloader. This doesn't at all bother me as I barely use it. There are workarounds for this.

    Also worth noting that Always On display is OFF however, I would be very confident in saying that compared to either stock ROM, it would be significantly better. Happy to test this if it helps someone.

    What Rom?
    Also can you not relock the bootloader?

    I am happy that you found something that is working for the most part for you.

    The ROM is Pixel Experience. Re-locking the bootloader can cause issues with custom ROMs. I was advised not to as it could potentially brick the phone. I would prefer to relock it but not if it's going to mess things up.

    I did some research and found out that yeah, DO NOT LOCK THE BOOTLOADER LOL

    Still, HD should work on Netflix, it does on my OnePlus device but I am not running anything that is not stock, except for Nova Launcher Prime.

    Are you using a custom ROM? Widevine Security is showing as L3 on mine and it needs to be L1. You can see this using an app called DRM info. If the bootloader is unlocked it will revert to L3. Netflix/Amazon etc require L1 Widevine security for HD content to work. Mine definitely worked before custom ROM. May need root to get around this but I'm honestly not bothered about it.
