    Please keep in mind that this is beta software. These builds are sometime not as stable as our official OTAs generally are. By installing this update, you accept the potential risks.

    And please remember to tell us about any bugs you may find using the bug report forums, found here. https://forums.oneplus.net/feedback/

    Please note:
    1. 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.
    2. If you ARE NOT running open beta software and would like to, please refer to the flashing instructions and the full ROM found in the downloads page here: http://downloads.oneplus.net/
    3. 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.
    4. 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.

    You need to manually switch to Beta builds. They are not received like regular stable updates. But bear in mind, this is not final software and you should only use it if you are comfortable with using test software. As an example, I just had to do a factory reset after installing this last update.

    PS - Factory reset was due to a Substratum theme.

    Beta doesn't come as an OTA over your stable build. You have to manually install it. Really sorry OnePlus for his stupidity!

    I have installed Substratum+Andromeda+Ozone. At the end of the boot cycle, System UI crashes and I am stuck in a bootloop :(

    If you are on beta 1 you'll receive beta 2 via OTA. But if you are on a stable build you'll have to flash it manually. Here's the link to that: http://downloads.oneplus.net/
    But my suggestion to you is to be on the stable build. You couldn't even read this thread properly where the above link was clearly provided. Chances are that you'll not read the flashing instructions properly and will brick your phone!
