    Although I am grateful with any update from you guys however I am wondering about priority's you have. I get that creating new phones is your priority because it generates funds but it will shoot you in the foot eventually if you can't keep support up for "older" models. I mean the 5T isn't that old, give or take a year old, and already updates are trailing behind.

    Try keeping the promises you make and keep your followers happy OnePlus.

    This is not 'System Update', OnePlus! This is just application update that could and should have been pushed through Playstore instead. I hope you understand the difference between 'System Update'and application update in future. Really disappointing!!!

    Just jumped on the beta boat a week or two ago so I'm not sure:
    I rooted my device, do I still get the OTA Open Beta or do I need to upgrade locally? And if I need to upgrade locally, can I do a "dirty flash"? I get that it's not recommended to dirty flash, but I'm not looking to whine here if I run into problems by doing so.

    You might still get the OTA Update even if you are rooted. But, the update will not be successful as the updater script always checks for the system integrity and your phone being rooted will not pass the test. Only way out is to flash the complete ROM. Dirty flash should work.

    Gotcha. Thanks buddy.
    TWRP or local upgrade via OS? What do you reckon?

    Who told you or even hinted to you that the next beta would be PIE?
    It was a beta update. That suggests they feel it needs testing.
    What promises were broken by this update.
    Get a grip.

    Most welcome, bro.
    Both should work. But I prefer Local Upgrade via OS as some TWRPs doesn't support flashing of official ROMs.

    How do you know what changes they made to the system to integrate the changes to these apps. Are you the secret member who is an employee of OnePlus. Does Carl call you with information that we don't have.

    yup, it wasn't promised.
    but as you said, OP couldn't even make a stable feature for an APPLICATION, and wanted to test it? How better could be their Pie!

    The Gallery App and the Community App is not a new application that need to be integrated to the system after each update. The changes are made in the application itself. You don't need to make changes in the OS. Does your PUBG or Fortnite update make changes to your Android OS?

    To incorporate an app feature, how deep they should go into system settings!

    mere app update thru playstore was too sufficient for this stuff.

    Yes, that's what they should be doing. Even most of Samsung & Asus Apps are updated through the Playstore. Updates to apps are done on the app itself and in no way make changes to the OS.

    it would have been better if there was no beta this month and they provided this update thru playstore.

    The long wait for Pie is worth waiting for.

    I never said you were begging for anything. And not trying to defend the company either. Sort of playing devil's advocate. While it is disappointing to some about not getting the update as soon as they'd like, the company never gave a specific date or time frame for that matter.

    As for bad experience, they are one of the best in terms of updates. The only one better is Google. There are Android one phones that update faster but are very low end and it's not a fair comparison. When I bought the 5T I put my S8 aside, now if you want to talk about bad experience than Samsung is the one to discuss that over.

    Do you realize that with every update there are changes to code made that never get shown in the changelog? Because 99% of people would have no clue what it's done, what it's for or care. There was behind the scenes stuff done for this.

    Yes, but that coding is done in the app but not on the Android OS. So, technically it is not a system update.
