    I was earlier able to connect my OP5 to android auto in my car, but after the update i only see a blank screen.
    Using the original in-box cable to connect.
    the phone and the car system both indicate that android auto is connected.
    I cleared android auto cache, reinstalled the app and also re-paired the phone with the music system -still doesnt work.

    My Oneplus One still connects to AA without any issues.

    Also when i connect my OP5 via bluetooth, the google play music app plays the tracks but no sound comes in the car music system, i need to restart my OP5 and then it works perfectly.

    Any pointers to sort this would be appreciated. Couldn't really find anything on the forum about this.

    Neither OP3T nor OP5 is on the list of supported devices (read: they don't support the DRM that Netflix requires to run FHD, it's a thing that has to be built in OS, and currently is not).

    Hello, I'm a student in China and I just received my OP5 that I purchased recently today. Since it's a Chinese OP5, I want to switch to the global Oxygen OS. It was one of the primary reasons why I decided to purchase the phone, mainly because the developers seem to be completely fine with giving users the freedom to swap OSes if they choose, and many other Chinese smartphones that come with a Chinese OS tend to cause issues when attempting to change OSes.

    However, I've run into some difficulty. I followed the guide posted here, with some differences:


    Connect to your computer and a popup will come up asking you to verify rsa key, click always allow from this computer and click okay - This did not occur for me, I didn't get a popup

    Boot your phone into recovery mode (power and volume down) and wipe data and cache then click install from USB and connect to your computer
    Make sure adb recognises your device by typing in
    adb devices

    If it returns with your serial number then all is good
    Type in
    adb sideload oxygenos.zip

    This point is where the trouble starts. I didn't rename the zipfile for the latest Oxygen OS. This is the filename: OnePlus5Oxygen_23_OTA_010_all_1707032122_2a134296766a4804

    I'm not sure if that made a difference or not considering this is for the OP3, but yeah. Upon attempting to sideload, I keep receiving an error in the cmd window saying adb is unable to read the zip file. Due to this, I've been unable to install Oxygen OS on it. I would greatly appreciate it if someone would help me out as I'd really like to start using and enjoying this device. :(

    I had the same problem, you have to download the Android Studio this contain the latest version of ADB install this and restart you're PC and then you are able to sideload the file without errors

    Is it normal to have a weird purple refresh effect on my OP5 (similar to jelly effect but color) when using dark theme apps (like phone settings) while at minimum brightness(meaning not set by the adaptive brightness but set to minimum manually )?

    It is best noticed while in a dark room.

    Hi, i've got the 5 a few days ago, and i've been looking into different features... the one that i miss the most from my Xiaomi, is the camera flash of the led when the phone rings, where can i find this option ?

    I do need it, as i might misplace the phone sometimes or leave it in an other room and ... it's a good searching light for me, to see where it is at... Thanks

    isn't ringing sound used for this? and since flash is at the back you'd have to place your phone on the screen for the feature to be usable at all... not a great idea by xiaomi...

    They are pretty consistent in support. I guess OnePlus 5 will be supported up to 3 cycles of android update which is fair enough. At least 3 years of active support. And there is always XDA forum for any eventualities if any!

    Well i do , as i do not want to get distracted by the many other sounds and things that the phone does, or notifications from messenger or whatsapp and other such apps, all i want is the phone to ring and make a strong light. In some cases if the mute is on, or the sound is turned to the point you can hardly hear what do you do then ?

    TWRP was removed from my device after downloading 4.5.5 somehow? I got the stock recovery now. This is really getting annoying now. The recovery is completely ****** and I don't really feel like wiping the device every time I update it.
