    Hey everyone,

    Here are the latest open beta builds for the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T.

    • System
      • Updated Android security patch to 2019.05
    • OnePlus Switch
      • More accurate remaining time for completion
    Please keep in mind that this is beta software. These builds are sometimes not as stable as our official OTAs generally are. By installing this update, you accept the potential risks. We look forward to getting your continued feedback in the bug reporting forum here: https://forums.oneplus.com/feedback/

    Please note:
    • If you have already flashed an Open Beta (you are currently running the latest Open Beta), you will receive this new build as an OTA.
    • If you are not running open beta software and would like to, please refer to the flashing instructions and the full ROM on the downloads page here.
    • Once you migrate to the beta path, you will continue to receive Open Beta OTAs. You will no longer receive the regular Official Stable OTAs.
    • Moving back to the Official OTA path from the Beta path will require a full install and clean flash (full wipe of all data and cache).
    Make sure to let us know how you feel about the beta builds here in the thread too. We are watching.

    Never Settle.

    Does the open beta have any issues with using google assistant? I am not able to set alarms through google assistant on regular build.

    WARNING! Open Beta releases are for competent and experienced users since they may not always be stable and are for the purposes of testing and reporting to OnePlus to help them develop future stock firmware and features. By installing this Open Beta, you accept the potential risks. Once on the Open Beta pathway you will no longer receive the regular OnePlus, Official Stable OTA's and you will need to wipe your phone, (data and cache), before attempting to return to Official Stable OnePlus stock firmware.

    This explains the Open Beta schedule and how to report bugs and issues...

    OxygenOS Beta Program: Explained.


    If, for any reason, you wish to leave the Open Beta programme and return to the OnePlus stock, stable OxygenOS releases, this will entail either contacting OnePlus Support...


    Alternatively, you can also use the, "roll-back" firmwares for the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T/McLaren, originally issued for downgrading from Android Q Beta, which are flashed in Local upgrade. These will require a wipe of your phone, (data and cache). See towards the bottom of the following post in the next link to download the, "roll-back", firmware that is applicable to your model of phone, 6T/McLaren or 6...

    Download Roll-back packages for OnePlus 6T/McLaren & OnePlus 6

    Watch the following video, carefully and thoroughly, as it will answer all your questions on how to use the roll-back firmware to go back to stock OxygenOS on Android Pie...

    Downgrade from Android Q or Open Beta to Android Pie Oneplus 6T/McLaren & 6

    Note: This downgrade method will erase all the contents of the phone, please be sure to backup first.

    Also available, for competent and experienced users, there is the OnePlus tool for the 6T, McLaren and 6. Just head over to the xda developers forum by following these links...

    OnePlus 6T MsmDownloadTool v4.0.58 (OOS v9.0.11) 6T Global & McLaren models

    OnePlus 6 MsmDownloadTool V4.0 6 Global model

    See a YouTube video for this process.

    Note: This downgrade method will erase all the contents of the phone, please be sure to backup first.

    (If you have any questions regarding the use of the MsmDownloadTool, please ask them on the xda developers forum and do not clog up the Open Beta thread)

    Custom Recovery. Users that have installed a custom recovery such as TWRP, can use this to revert to stock on the OnePlus 6/6T. Refer to your relevant custom recovery developer for ways to do this.

    If you have the McLaren OnePlus 6T you, "may", lose the McLaren Warp Charge animation/facility by flashing Open Beta firmware.

    (N.B. Open Beta is not available for the non stock, 6T T-Mobile (USA) carrier minority variant)

    Thank you so much for the update, @Manu J. Good to have the latest security patch. :)

    Hope you will consider letting us test ( and taste ;)) some of the 7 Pro features such as ZEN mode in the next Beta.
    Also, kindly consider AoD as a test case for Beta testers.

    Honourable intentions, but I am afraid that soon we will be flooded with a) complains and b) request for the 7 Pro features. ;)

    After all, even the clear warnings in red in the Q DP post didn't stop people from installing the DP and then complaining about it.:D

    Is it just me, or the battery life was drastically improved from the latest beta in current build? Used to have 6-6,5h sot per day, now I'm 50% with 5h sot already
