    Why do you think that any/all 3.5mm Jack would not work with the 5T?

    You mean, to get seamless updates?
    It's possible but no one will ever attempt because it is not worth it (the main benefit is a slightly faster update process, but rebooting to recovery and applying the update is not that slow either).
    You'd have to repartition a lot of your phone's internal storage and the risk of bricking your phone is too high! Also, if I'm not mistaken, there's no /cache or /recovery partition anymore, so the internal structure is quite different. Take a look here: https://www.xda-developers.com/how-...ess-updates-affect-custom-development-on-xda/

    As for Treble, OEM blobs were moved to /vendor partition. You can check if it's Treble-enabled running the app "Treble check" from Play Store (OnePlus 5, 5T, 6 and 6T are all Treble-enabled).
    Again, Seamless updates has nothing to do with Treble. A device can have both, one or the other, or none.

    What angourakis has told you about Treble and seamless updates is exactly how it is. It is highly unlikely that either OnePlus or custom ROM makers will ever attempt to give the 5/5T seamless updates because the risks of bricking the phone are just too high for too small a reward not to mention the amount of work involved in doing so. If it was easy to do then one of those smart guys or OnePlus would have already done it. I applaud your interest in this and your willingness to dig around for information on how to do it. You show the spirit that makes the custom Rom community what it is and are the reason we can install custom rom's at all.

    As for the reasoning behind OnePlus's reluctance to give us Treble, It was not because they wanted to scare us about messing with partitions. It was because as has been said before the difficulty and risks in doing so. OnePlus does not expect regular users to go messing around with partitions and they know those who do have enough technical knowledge to even think about doing it also have enough sense to know not to try.

    OnePlus did not actually create a new Vendor partition at all what they did was repurpose a partition that already existed. By repurposing that spare partition they were able to get around the problems of changing the partition layout and therefore did not have to deal with the possibility of bricking their users phones. Can you imagine how much bad publicity and bad feeling that would have caused them if they had gotten it wrong ?

    As for TWRP that is a tool created by the custom ROM community to allow flashing of roms. It was created by those guys using the same tenacity and determination that you show and without those guys we would not be in the position we are today. TWRP is indeed a legitimate software tool and is even recommended by some device makers but it is not officially supported by them. Using it is at our own risk.

    There is nothing wrong with investigating these things and experimenting but always be aware of the risks in doing so and always have a plan to reverse what you have done to get your phone working again. Sometimes however some things can be near impossible for a regular user to undo.

    I wish you good luck and good fortune in your adventures into this subject and hope that we won't see you back here asking for help to undo what you have done lol.

    All the best RemusW.

    Has anyone noticed that the phone begun to produce strange (crack) sounds but very strong, when receiving notifications?

    Okay so, first you should know that oneplus 5/5t don't support seamless updates (and it's quite impossible to change that) Oh btw, samsung phones don't have that either if that makes you feel any better (not even the S or the Note ). You might not want to read the rest now.
    However if you still want to know what seamless updates are keep reading

    You know the way you install software updates? You receive a notification for the update, you download it and then your phone reboots into recovery to install it. While you are waiting for it to install you can't use your phone. Then the phone reboots, the update is applied and you can use your phone again.

    Now, with seamless updates, your phone downloads the update and then it installs it in the background while you are using your phone normally, then when it's done, you reboot your phone and the update it's applied.

    So you are saving like 5 minutes in which you are unable to use your phone.
    Here's a list of phone supporting seamless updates (kudos to xda)

    5.1.5 had a much better battery life.
    Battery is draining alarmingly quickly on 5.1.7 even after wiping off Cache in Recovery Mode.
