    Hey everyone,

    To assure that our Open Beta program runs smoothly, and to prepare the addition of new devices to the program, OxygenOS Open Beta 6 will be the last open beta build for the OnePlus 6 and 6T.

    We would like to thank all of you that joined our open beta testing program and shared your feedback for nearly two years. Your participation has helped ensure quality stable builds for the rest of the community, while also helping shape numerous features.

    In order to ensure that you have a smooth transition back to the stable software branch, we're releasing a special rollback build that will install OxygenOS 10.3.2 on your phone. After that, you will keep getting stable updates as per the maintenance schedule. Please make sure to back up your data. This process will completely wipe all the data on your phone. To help you backing up your data, we are sharing a small tutorial below.

    How to back up your data
    OnePlus Switch can help you back up and restore all your contacts, call history, short messages, multimedia files, system data and apps. Please bear in mind that app data will not be backed up, so make sure to sync apps and games that support this feature.
    1. Go to Settings - Utilities - OnePlus Switch and select Backup and Restore - New Backup.
    2. Select the data types that you want to back up, and tap Start Backup.
    3. Important - Once the back up process is finished, make sure to copy the [opbackup] folder present on your phone to your computer using a data cable, the cloud using the internet or external storage using an OTG cable. This folder can be copied back to the phone after the rollback is concluded, and the backup can be restored through OnePlus Switch.

    How to rollback your device
    1. Download the appropriate rollback package - OnePlus 6 or OnePlus 6T
    2. Open the File Manager and move the downloaded .zip package from the Downloads folder to the root directory.
    3. Open Settings - System - System updates, press the cogwheel on the top right corner, choose the Local upgrade option and select the rollback file.

    How to restore your data
    1. Go to Settings - Utilities - OnePlus Switch and select Backup and Restore - Restore Backup
    2. Select a type of data to be restored, and tap Start Restoration. A moment later, the phone data will start being restored to its former state.
    Never Settle.

    The end of what started out as a good open beta programme! :)
    Had it's ups and downs. Had it's glory moments. :)

    Would love to tag some fellow comrades who helped to keep the beta threads a little sane for a long time!
    @Kytharsis @ironass @FaleshC @Caomhin @Yannis Neris
    You guys did an excellent job in keeping the beta threads informative and helped break the mundane post of "wen updut, Y no updut, wen stabul" :p

    You'll still get stable builds for more than a year.

    What about Oneplus 6T?
    6T was launched in India in Nov 2018 which makes it 1.5 years only not even 2 years. Is this step justified for all those who bought 6T. I don't think so. Just because you have more device to support doesn't mean you have to discard the old ones.
