Allen W, Aug 24, 2016 : Hey friends, There are some exciting changes coming to OxygenOS. We’ve been doing a lot behind the scenes to improve our software platform, and there is no one we trust more than you guys to try it first. What is OxygenOS 3.5? Put simply, we think it’s a better OxygenOS. New features include: Several UI improvements New and improved OnePlus apps, including clock, weather and file manager Improved camera software More robust settings and and customization features You may notice some of these new features right away, but the biggest changes have taken place behind the scenes. We’ve streamlined our platform, and OxygenOS 3.5 includes a lot of back-end enhancements that will improve our processes. The big goal here is to increase the speed and frequency of updates moving forward. Why are we doing a community build? Two reasons: first, we want to give you guys a chance to try our new software before anyone else. As always, OxygenOS is something we want to build together with you. Second, we need your feedback! OxygenOS 3.5 includes some back-end changes that we’re confident will improve the user experience in the long run, but there are some bugs that we’re working out now. These include: Android Pay is not currently supported Only English is currently supported in several OnePlus apps Some performance issues Some UI issues when using custom themes System UI tuner is unstable (do not use); using the system UI tuner could cause serious issues that can only be resolved via factory reset You will need to re-register your fingerprints if you have fingerprint authentication enabled How to participate Visit the download page here: http://downloads.oneplus.net/oneplus-3/oneplus_3_oxygenos_3.5.0_community_build/ You will need to flash this build by ADB sideload.

You’ll need to manually (clean) flash back to our official builds to continue receiving official OTAs. Rolling back to official OxygenOS versions require wiping data and cache. Thank you for helping us build a better OxygenOS. Never Settle.
