    And that's a bummer because I need all such apps (and Netflix) to work. What's the point of rooting if such important functionality is at risk? I wish this problem wasn't there and I could install custom ROMs. :(:oops:

    By the way, OP 6/T will get Android 11 in 2021 is my understanding.

    As the Stable is a newer build you can just upgrade over Beta 4 without data loss. Always back up your phone anyway when switching. But Beta 4 is older build than Stable 10.3.1.

    Download the 10.3.1 update from the link below, make sure you select the correct phone model. And ensure you read the instructions on how to install on the download page.

    No real risk, as Magisk works very well to overcome those issues. It's all about security, and unlocking the bootloader, in the eyes of the banking sector, and others like Netflix, means you have removed some security protocols and can now bypass certain security features in Android.

    Same for Apple in the event you Jailbreak a phone.

    Magisk then puts code in place for each app requiring authentication, to mask that unlocked Bootloader and Root.

    Yes it is a pain the first time you do it, but like riding a bike, the learning curve is short, and you will do it with ease after that.

    There is a huge amount of info for specific phones on XDA.

    when near public wifis my phone now stops using mobile data but still requires logins to the wifi. meaning no data comes through. As I live in London and wifi is literally everywhere this is very problematic and annoying and something that didn't happen previously!

    update the facelock for apps

    Never gonna happen, facelock is too insecure, Fingerprint maybe. And that would be up to the App developers themselves to add the feature to their own apps.

    Or turn off WiFi completely when out and about, only turn it on when you need it. It's 2 clicks, takes a split second.

    but it didn't happen before so why did it need to change. I know that's an easy fix but I don't really see why I should have to settle for that. Never settle after all...

    Android 10 and Google brought in a raft of new features for various aspects of the phone.

    You could also try resetting the WiFi Mobile Network , but I doubt it will work. Willing to be proven otherwise, but my phone always did this, was never an issue

    Settings, System, Reset Options, Reset WiFi Mobile Bluetooth

    It's not true. The installer alert that it will factory reset the phone if you install 10.3.1 over Beta 4.

    Yes you will get that alert, however you can ignore it, its because they are different builds, if you check through this thread you will find others had the same warning and installed anyway,and it worked fine

    10.3.1 is a newer build and will upgrade over Beta without data loss.

    Well, I meant if still functioning, which it should, without issue. My son has had his OnePlus 2 since 2015, still works great on Modded roms, is looking to replace it now, as he cracked the front screen recently, and has given him cause to upgrade, but he said it was working fine with everything up until then.

    Go to settings>WiFi & internet>WiFi>WiFi preferences and disable "open network notification".

    If this doesn't solve the issue, you could also make sure that "intelligently select the best wifi" is turned off.

    Not sure if this will work but worth a try.

    Hugely underrated, and sadly the least supported phone in OnePlus history. I still dig mine out from time to time when I fancy trying new roms.

    already turned off but giving "auto switch to mobile data" to see if that helps as London 4g usually better than any public WiFi. thanks!

    Still no new beta. New release just for newest devices. So sadness with OnePlus team.

    Pixel 2+ atm can test android11 Dev preview.
    My op6 is still with beta4 and January security patch.

    Ok, no problem. After of that, I know what will be my next device 👍

    My patience is also running out..not because there is no new update but we are stuck with this improperly baked build of Beta 4. And now waiting for an update to fix the issues its getting stretched.

    Hey yo @Manu J. give us an update on the update homey.
