    Hey everyone,

    Here is the latest open beta build for OnePlus 5T

    Release notes
    • Launcher
      • Added recent search tag in search app section of the app drawer
    • System
      • General bug fixes and improvements
    • Weather
      • Improved accuracy of the current location
      • Added new icons and updated UI
    • Gaming mode
      • Network boost in Gaming mode – network priority for gaming App in the foreground

    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.

    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 on 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.

    Download the necessary files from the post above and follow as below:

    PS: Clean Flash Recommended, Dirty flash is fine if you are running a previous OOS Beta version, else if you come from a custom rom Clean Flash only.

    Caution: Please remove your existing screen lock/Pin/Pattern/ Password and set it to swipe before starting the update process. Although in my testing i was able to update fine keeping my pin but some have reported unable to unlock after the 8.1 update, thus remove as precaution.

    Also Remove all Substratum Overlays, Deactivate Xposed Modules and Uninstall Xposed and any other mods that may not be compatible with Oreo 8.1

    ********************* For Stock Non Rooted Users with Stock Recovery *****************

    1. Download the Beta Full Zip from above link and place it in the root folder.

    3. Select Language > Install menu > Install from internal > Select Beta Full Zip > Flash

    4. Upon Successful Flash > Wipe Cache

    5. Reboot Once Done

    Device will reboot & your OnePlus 5T is now running on the latest OxygenOS Open Beta Firmware & OS based on Android Oreo 8.1

    PS: The first boot may take some time so keep calm and wait for it to boot.

    ************************ For Unlocked Users with TWRP Recovery Method 1************************

    Download the required files from Post 2

    Once you have downloaded all the required files on you device, please follow as below

    1. Tested on both Codeworkx Universal or Latest Bluspark

    2. Reboot Recovery and Take a Nandroid of your existing ROM just in case you need it

    3. Flash Magisk Uninstaller

    4. Wipe > Advance Wipe > Select Dalvik & Cache > Swipe to Wipe

    5. Install Menu > Select OOS Beta 5 Full Rom Zip > Swipe to Flash

    7. Reboot System and Enjoy OOS 8.1 without any data loss

    8. Upon Reboot Open Magisk Manager & update the Manager App and Magisk 16.0

    PS: Some users reported bootloop flashing Magisk 16.0 thus i recommend flashing 15.3 and later updating it in OS.

    Thank You all for your Support [​IMG]

    The first boot may take some time so keep calm [​IMG]

    PS: Do not flash partial update OTAs (under 1 GB) on a modified device! If you want to use partial OTAs, you must first flash a full OTA that it applies to, and then flash the partial OTA from stock recovery. Flashing partial OTAs from TWRP will either fail or soft brick your device. You can return to a usable state by flashing one of the above full OTA zips in recovery.

    Can someone confirm whether parallel WhatsApp is working or not? People were complaining of crashes when sending messages

    Edit: Parallel WhatsApp crashes whenever I send a message. I've reverted to Beta 4 because this is a major issue for me. Was very inconvenient as I had to do a full data wipe. If you use parallel apps often, I suggest not updating to this beta. Hopefully it will be fixed in the next beta

    Don't ask for ETA. OnePlus should just extend their window every time someone asked. The maybe people can learn (first world problems)
