    About that...i too would love to use my 6 for another 3 years, but I believe I can't use banking apps ( and Netflix) on custom ROM s? (I won't root, btw)

    Lineage based Roms are not supported by banking apps as per my testing. However had no issues with caf builds

    I was looking up Havoc OS. Seems really good. But I can't even think of installing because : a) banking apps might not work ( not sure) b) might brick my phone. :oops:

    You can use Magisk, to get around banking app security checks. Many have used it and it works fine.

    Yes so does installing a custom ROM such as Havoc or Lineage. You have to be rooted to install those. Magisk then has modules to bypass those security requests without compromising the security on the phone.

    Banking apps all work fine for me on my old rooted OP2 with Havoc OS. Not rooted my 6t though so I can't speak for how it works on that

    You won't get beta updates, unless you are already using open beta.

    Open Beta test firmware may not always be as stable or as fully functioning as the stock, stable, official OxygenOS and installing it is entirely at your own RISK!

    Once on the Open Beta channel, you will no longer receive the stock official OxygenOS OTA updates unless you revert your phone back to stock firmware, which may involve wiping your phone.

    Also, bear in mind that the official, stable, OxygenOS release for Android 10 is also available.

    Open Beta is for experienced and competent users to assess and offer constructive feedback and submit detailed bug reports to OnePlus. Therefore, this is not a spoon feeding section of the forums.

    You will not receive this OTA update unless you are already on the Open Beta channel. You can however, use the Oxygen Updater from the Play Store to download and install it.

    BUMMER!

    The new official OxygenOS update, 10.0.1, has a build date of... 191114

    This is an earlier build date than Open Beta 2... 191120

    This will cause issues for anyone wishing to switch from Open Beta 2 to OxygenOS 10.0.1 as it means a downgrade of the firmware.

    It is going to be a full wipe job of the phone, with either the roll-back from Android 10 to Android 9 firmware for the 6 & 6T or you can use the MSMDownloadTool for the...

    Luckily, all our Open Beta testers are competent and experienced users.

    I tried the rollback package, but all I got was this...

    What I do now?
    I tried it many times, but nothing...
    If anything, I'm virtually stuck on Open Beta 2 (31)

    You need to delete the .jar part from the file first (at the end of the file name) in the file manager.

    Android Beta 2 seems to be optimizing my phone at a phenomenal rate since installation, it just gets better and better with SOT, and stability is phenomenal.

    Just for clarity, I do run Greenify app every couple of days, which I use to force stop many 3rd party apps I don't want running, take maybe 20 seconds or less to close those apos

    I also use Fast Task Killer, maybe a couple of times a day, takes seconds

    I also have many 3rd party apps I don't want running and don't need notifications from, set to optimized in Settings, Battery, Battery Optimization. Those I do want running are set to intelligent control.

    Not sure if these options make a difference, but the battery just won't let go of that charge. [e]1f602[/e][e]1f44d[/e][e]1f601[/e]

    I believe you can install a custom ROM without root. The bootloader needs to be unlocked though.
