    How to install and consequences

    1. Pie Open Beta to A10 Open Beta: Via OTA, no data loss.
    2. Pie Stable to A10 Open Beta: By installing the beta package mentioned in the thread, no data loss.
    3. A10 Developer Preview to A10 Open Beta: By installing the beta package mentioned in the thread, no data loss.
    4. A10 Open Beta to Stable Pie / Pie Open Beta rollback: Use the rollback package in the Developer Preview 1 thread or the one in this thread after it is updated, will constitute data loss.
    5. A10 Open Beta to A10 Stable:
    No information as of yet if this can be directly done. History suggests that you need to use the rollback package to go back to Stable Pie and then either wait for the Stable A10 OTA or do a local upgrade to A10. Will constitute data loss.
    Note: Initial reports say dirty flashing doesn't wipe data. But do it with precautions.

    6. Pie Stable to A10 Stable: Via OTA, no data loss.

    Note: As a precaution, it is always adviced to take a backup before any major android upgrade.

    When will you get the A10 update

    1. If you are already on the Open Beta channel, you would have got this update through OTA. If not, install it through local upgrade.
    2. If you are on the stable channel, you'll get OTA somewhere in November '19.

    Below is the tentative time plan for A10 release.

    Now, please don't ask questions related to the update release over and over. No one here can give it to you any sooner just because you keep asking. It will only irritate the fellow users.
    Thanks for your understanding.

    How to install the Update

    Known Issues:

    Common Issues:
    • Sensors like the gyroscope, ambient light sensor and proximity sensor are not accessible. Reboot your phone again and the sensor are working again. So you have to reboot your phone twice for the full installation.
    • Hiding the notch is not available. Workaround. The link is not working in the Community App. Go to post #2548 on page 128 in this thread. Thanks @DroidOnePlus
    • The battery life isn't perfect.
    • There is extra space between the keyboard (GBoard) and bottom of the display. This is also on the OnePlus Launcher (default) present, so you can choose a third party launcher.
    • Smart-Display is called Contexual Display
    • It's beta software. Gestures could be a bit laggy and the fingerprint sensor could be a bit slower. Overall stability is fine, but not perfect.
    • Google Pay is not working. It's limited to 6T. It heard that a update of GPay fixed it. Google Pay does work on OnePlus 6 devices.
    Uncommon Issues (some users complaining about it; not widespread):
    • network issues. Android 10 introduced random mac adresses on WiFi. This may cause the issues depending on your local network. You can disable the random mac adresses in the WiFi settings under your specific WiFi Network. The name is privacy.
    • Issues with aptX/bluetooth audio. For me my Bullets Wireless with aptX are working fine.
    • Storage issues:
      • Internal storage not accessible via a computer.
      • Gallery, File Manager Screenshots are not working. Try to remove app data of the Gallery and the File Manager.
      • Google Chrome or Play Store crashes at downloading.
