    The first boot may take some time so keep calm :fingers-crossed:

    PS: Do not flash partial update OTAs (under 1 GB) on a modified device! If you want to use partial OTAs, you must first flash a full OTA that it applies to, and then flash the partial OTA from stock recovery. Flashing partial OTAs from TWRP will either fail or soft brick your device. You can return to a usable state by flashing one of the above full OTA zips in recovery.

    Nice. (Yes I just want to reserve a post on the first page so I can edit it later once I flash it and give my thoughts.)

    EDIT1 (Dec 30 2017 4:00AM CST)
    I was on OOS 4.7.6, rooted with Magisk and have Substratum themes and TWRP installed. Uninstalled Subs themes and Magisk (using Magisk Uninstaller), flashed stock recovery provided up top then dirty flashed OB1 on top of 4.7.6 after wiping cache.

    So far so good. Missed the fast boot times of Oreo (was using OnePlus One on AOSP Oreo before getting 5T).
    - Fingerprint Sensor seems to be faster but that could be just a placebo effect.
    - Face Unlock Assist Light or whatever it's called introduced on 4.7.6 is not present on OB1, I assume this would be added on later betas.

    Too early to tell overall system stability and battery life but yeah.

    thanking everyone who is helping OnePlus test this release. as I need my phone to work I cannot participate this time and bug finding and reporting. just wanted to let the beta testers know that I appreciate they take the risk and help us all getting a better final release.

    cheers.
