    Hey everyone,

    Here is the latest open beta build for the OnePlus 6.

    • System
      • Audio tuner for Type-C and Bluetooth earphones
      • About Phone UI improvements
    • Communication
      • Improved UI for Call History
    • Launcher
      • Supported dark theme for Dashboard in Shelf
    • Camera
      • Improved slow motion
    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.com/feedback/

    We have integrated the Feedback tool into Community App so that you can report bugs and share Logs directly to our bug hunters within the Community App.

    To submit a new bug report
    Community app > Profile > Feedback > click on + icon > select a category > fill in the details attach screenshots if any > submit (the tool will capture logs based on the category)


    In some cases, you might have to record the logs for a longer period and reproduce the issue before you can submit a bug report (for example, network drops)

    Community app > Profile > Feedback > click on + icon > select a category > fill in the details attach screenshots if any > start recording (the app records logs in the background > once the issue has been reproduced > stop recording > submit

    Do try out the new Feedback tool. It is now much easier and simpler for our community to report bugs and share feedback with us. If you have any questions or need help, please contact bughunters@oneplus.com

    Please note:
    • 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.
    • 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:https://www.oneplus.com/support/softwareupgrade
    • 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.
    • 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're watching for your feedback!

    Never Settle.

    Bug 1: Cannot attend calls and turn off alarm when phone is locked.
    Temp fix: Turn off pocket mode in the settings.

    Bug 2: Unable to clear recent apps.
    Temp fix: Uninstall oneplus launcher updates. You can find this in the app info page. Do not update it currently from the app store. Wait for the next update.
    Permanent fix: Launcher Update version 3.1.5 has fixed this issue.

    Bug 3: Random soft restarts. Many have clicked this. But i personally don't have this bug. If anyone can provide the steps to replicate or have a fix, I'll be happy to test it out.

    Random bugs with random apps.
    Fix: Try clearing cache of the app. Helps.

    And please, raise a bug report with the link mentioned in original post or upvote a bug report which is similar to yours. Commenting here alone will not do much good.

    If you guys have any other genuine bugs (not the battery drain issues, they are mostly user induced and you can checked the pinned battery thread for it), tag me or reply to this post. I'll try to replicate it and try to find out a fix.
    If you have a fix, then it is more awesome. I'll add to this list.
