    You'll never get seamless updates on the OP5/OP5T - neither device has the space for the additional partitions needed.

    Yes, project treble separates vendor from system.
    Seamless updates is a bonus for devices that have the space to handle the two (A & B) slots.

    Treble is a tool useful for OnePlus, not for you.

    128GB aren't enough? Partitions size can be changed. Can you explain?
    Thanks.

    It could be done but can you imagine what would happen if OnePlus released an update that repartitioned the device?
    Repartioning is risky - if anything goes wrong, your device is bricked.
    It also wipes everything including internal storage.
    I don't think OnePlus would risk it.

    Yes true, while repartitioning is simple, it can be really bad if it goes wrong.
    There are always possibilty to get back the device with a dedicated recovery. But that's also complicated for users.
    And depending on the current layout if it needs (and it probably needs as Android is much smaller than 128G) to modify internal storage offset, it can be done without clearing it. But any error means loss of data which is not affordable.
    Or it needs to have several fallback options (not possible if device is more than half full etc..) But that's never 100% safe.

    That all sounds very risky you're right.
    Thanks for your answer.

    edit: if OP still wants to have ginea pig for doing it, I'm there
    ok read a bit more and fallback mechanism would be for example A/B which we don't have ..

    I know it's possible to repartition - I've done it a few times on various devices but, it's too risky for OnePlus to roll it out in an update to the whole userbase.

    Imagine the mayhem on these forums - a lot of users have problems just taking a normal OTA update!
