    I want to roll Back my android version from pie to oreo.
    Reasons are....
    1. When i press volume button I get only media control volume however in Oreo when I used to press volume button I used to get notification volume and media volume and call volume all together
    2. in Oreo I was able to reply each WhatsApp message through notifications but now sometimes I do not get reply button. the ratio is 50 50 out of 10 messages five times I get the option of reply and five times I do not get any option.

    1. Google's idea for that change
    2. Tell whatsapp to optimize the app for Pie... Else clear cache and data of that app...

    If you can't deal with the 1th "issue" then either get used to it or never update again once rolled back and miss out on "important" security patches and feature updates...

    No, they are not
    Especially the 1th thing you pointed out which is by design that Google put into Android Pie not OnePlus
    Did you try my suggestion for the 2th "reason"

    Everyone knows that the volume bars was changed by Google. Thats why OP put the Setting cog so that you can get to the settings page quickly.
    Also if you wanna roll back then search, this has been asked and answered. But we all know that you aint gonna roll back and that you just wanted to rant about it. Otherwise you would have taken the initiative and just done it.

    Also i bet you wont roll back...

    I did and it's a better decision, not due to your reasons but let's say pi wasn't stable enough on my op5

    There's guides on google how this is done. It just depends do you want to root the phone or keep it stock.

    As mentioned by others, this is change to base Android OS... not going to change back unless Google rub their chins and think 'mmmm, maybe t'was better'.

    The second is for WhatsApp to improve by updating their app.

    OnePlus can show concern and whatever else but they are not going to fix.

    This rant was just to check this forum that weather oneplus notices us or not. And the conclusion is... They don't

    Of course they don't, they have a specific section for that which they monitor...
    But of course a simple search would have revealed that for you.

    1. Backup data
    2. Unlock bootloader
    3. Install custom recovery (twrp pie version)
    4. Download stock rom and placed it in your phone root directory
    5. Install rom using twrp
    And done
