    Edit: For those that were using Android 11 Open Beta 7, please provide your feedback through this survey

    Dear friends,

    Thanks to everyone for participating in our OBT program, you have shared a lot of valuable feedback and suggestions with us over the last year. It's fair to say we always love hearing what you have to say about OxygenOS and it’s not an overstatement to say that your help allows us to ensure quality stable builds and cool new features for the rest of the community.

    Since the Android 11 builds for the OnePlus 8T are now more and more stable, thanks to our stronger R&D resources that can better test and adjust these builds to meet our standards, the current OBT will be the last one for the 8T on Android 11. The stable versions for the OnePlus 8T will continue to be released according to the current maintenance schedule with the latest system optimizations and feature updates.

    Here are the final Open Beta builds based on Android 11 for the OnePlus 8T.

    Please bear in mind that this is beta software and, as such, may be less stable than stable MP builds. If you are installing this build, we highly recommend you make a full system backup before proceeding. We also recommend you read all the instructions and notes before proceeding.

    • System
      • Improved system stability
      • Fixed the issue that the face unlock failed in the QR scanning on WhatsApp
      • Upgrade Android Security Patch to 2021.07
    • Work-life balance
      • Now work Wi-Fi can support added to life Wi-Fi
      • Fixed the issue of failure to modify life and work mode
    • OnePlus Store
      • An intuitive and convenient way to manage your OnePlus account, get easy-to-access support, discover exciting members-only benefits, and shop for OnePlus products. (Please note that it can be uninstalled)
    In order to ensure that you have a smooth transition back to stable software, we're releasing a special rollback build that will install the stable version of OxygenOS on your phone. After experiencing the newest OBT version, you can back up and roll back your device to the stable version, according to the instructions below. This will return your device to the (EU/IN) and (NA) stable build.

    Instructions to flash the rollback builds:
    • Installing the rollback build will wipe the data, please back up the important data before installing
    • The rollback build should be installed twice, to ensure stability. (please save the downloaded copy of the rollback build to avoid multiple downloads)
    Installation process:
    1. Download the rollback zip package from the above link
    2. Copy the ROM upgrade package to the phone storage.
    3. Go to Settings -> System -> System Updates -> Click top right icon -> Local upgrade -> Click on the corresponding installation package -> Upgrade -> System upgrade completed to 100%.
    4. After the upgrade is complete, click Restart.
    5. Update successful.
    Please keep in mind that this is beta software. These builds are sometimes not as stable as our official OTAs generally are. By installing this update, you accept the potential risks. For those who were on previous versions of OnePlus 8T, we appreciate your active feedback and for reaching out to us. With your help, we have been able to better optimize and improve several key areas. Thank you for your patience and as always, we look forward to getting your continued feedback via the Community app.

    If you don't have the Community app installed on your device, feel free to download it HERE. You can check here for more information on the integrated Feedback tool.

    Please note:
    • If you are not running open beta software and would like to, please refer to the flashing instructions and the full ROM on the downloads page here.
    • Moving back to the Official OTA path from the Beta path will require a full install and clean flash (full wipe of all data and cache).
    If you have any issues during the process, please share your feedback in the Community. Thank you for your continued support and together we will continue to work on making OxygenOS better than ever.
    Never Settle.

    What happens to the closed beta stream, @Abdul B. ?
    Will OnePlus stop that for current and new devices too?

    Frees up developers to work on A12, its simple logic. New Android version to be released soon. Pull away from a beta where stable version already functions very well, and no new features would be added or tested anyway, in what will be soon a redundant A11.

    Put the time and energy into creating OOS 12, stands to reason. 👍

    Or maybe it will be released with OOS 12. And then 8 series will have 13 as well 🤷‍♂️👍
