    Hi all,
    My OnePlus 6 (running OOS 5.1.9) was behaving weird and I decided to reset the phone. I am currently in China, and after I accepted the terms and connected to a wifi network, the phone was stuck on the checking for updates page. Since Google's servers are blocked in China, is it possible that I skip the checking for update process or somehow connect to a VPN (which I have) during setup? Thanks so much!

    there should be an option like continue without connecting to wifi. I have seen some people reported that this option is not available. if that is the case, take help of another phone (phone 1) connected to VPN with cellular data. Now start the mobile hotspot on phone 1 and connect your oneplus 6 to it and try to complete the setup.

    The only option I see is "see all wifi networks". I'll try tethering a VPN connection with another phone. Thanks for the suggestion.

    if it is not working as well, download the old version of OOS and flash it and then update to latest after setting everything up. Some times Oneplus is messing with setup apk with their full zips. Also make sure you download the zip files from official site.

    being familiar with Google issue in China and ad you are doing a fresh restart. I would recommend you to download official ROM from Chinese one plus forum. and flash it from recovery.. everything will run smoothly..you can install Google pakages from OnePlus APK market.l, which works normally.

    Hi all,
    It's all done now. Tethered a VPN connection from a friend's jailbroken iPhone solved the issue.
    Thanks.
