    Hey everyone,

    Here is the latest open beta build for OnePlus 5, based on android 8.1

    Release notes
    Updated system to Android™ 8.1 Oreo™
    Phone
    • New auto pick up gesture
      • answer an incoming call by raising the phone
    System
    • General bug fixes and improvements
    • Added more clock styles for ambient display
    • Updated Android security patch to 2018-02
    Gaming mode
    • Added new optimizations in gaming mode for immersive gaming experience including power saving and pausing adaptive brightness
    OnePlus Switch
    • Added support to migrate application data, allowing you to switch between devices seamlessly

    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.

    Note: as it has been more than a week, you must have had a chance to check out all the changes in this version of OBT, please share your feedback by completing the below survey.

    Thanks for the update @Manu J. !! 8.1 WOOHOOO!!! FInally those threads can stop!! New Ambient Display Styles :OOOO
    For everyone in advance ;)
    Note: Update Issues
    -Signature Verification Failed Issue

    Most probably you are facing the signature verification failed issue. If yes then try:
    a)From the file manager enable show hidden files and head over to .OTA folder and delete the file in that folder. Now download the update with a stable network.
    or​
    b)Download the full zip from OnePlus downloads website(http://downloads.oneplus.net/) or Funk Wizard's thread in XDA and flash from recovery via local upgrade.

    -Impatient to wait
    If you are saying that you didn't receive the update you have to wait since it's incremental as mentioned in the official thread.
    a)Download OperaVPN and set the country to Germany or Canada and download via OTA.
    or​
    b)Download the app "Oxygen Updater" from Play Store and follow instructions.
    or​
    c)Download the full zip from OnePlus downloads website(http://downloads.oneplus.net/) or Funk Wizard's thread in XDA and flash from recovery via local upgrade.

    If someone can extract new OnePlus switch apk from this update, please do. App data backup is so awesome.

    Hmm i cannot fully think Oneplus would allow the Switch app to do app data backup.. Feels wierd, i would guess it's not app data for all apps, but only certain apps. But we'll see

    You have a OnePlus 5? [​IMG]
    Do you think this works similar to Titanium Backup?

    Steps to dirty flash it. Without wiping data. I am on OOS 5.0.4, rooted and decrypted. Which recovery is required to use.

    If they're telling it then it must be probably.
    If you try it out, let us know.

    It is possible if the app has root access. It's a system app after all.
