    It clearly says that in the instructions:

    "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)."

    Hey Everyone, my first post : )

    I have a big problem I think but it will take a minute to sum up, sorry about that!

    Firstly, I've been lurking for a loooong time, love the OP community. I've been hooked on OnePlus since my first OP product, the OP3 when it first came out. Unfortunately, in the first week of April this year my beloved, storage-challenged OP3 lost a fight with gravity and needed to be replaced. That's when I jumped in to a 7T. I'm from Canada but I've lived in China since 2003 so buying OnePlus products locally was pretty simple. At the time a few years ago, as some of you may remember there was a 24 hour online service center who allowed online appointments to help users switch from Hydrogen OS to Oxygen OS so it was pretty slick for guys like me who aren't so tech savvy.

    So, my Hydrogen OP7T arrived first week of April and I immediately downloaded the most recent stable version of Oxygen OS so I wouldn't need to deal without google in my life but when i tried to install, I got that message saying 'my selected version is lower than my current version' so i knew i would need to a) wait for the next update and b) turn off automatic update so Hydrogen OS doesn't continue to hijack me.

    Waited I did, checking every week for new updates and that's when I saw the OB4 update. 10 weeks I had been waiting for this glorious moment! I downloaded, and installed. It said installation successful! just Reboot! Well, the reboot took 3 hours and when it turned back on it there were two notifications:

    1st: System update failed
    2nd: Please upgrade to Hydrogen 10.0.09

    I tried again, same way, 3 hours again, failed again but didn't even tell me so lol. Just the 'upgrade to hydrogen' message again. That was two days ago.

    Yesterday: Still stuck on Hydrogen, I began to search again for new solutions I hadn't discovered yet and that is when I saw #5 on this thread: https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/faq-oneplus-7t-oxygenos-beta-stable-update-guide.1229015/

    No VPN so no ability to get Oxygen Updater, not even sure it would've worked in my situation anyway. Official OP site still behind the times for stable upgrade so I can't just do a simple flash. So I went to third option, "Repo of Oxygen OS Builds (xda-developers.com)"

    That's when the trouble began. Right or wrong, I downloaded and installed this:
    10.0.11: OnePlus7TOxygen_14.O.13_GLO_013_2005192145
    Mirror: https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=4349826312261822198
    MD5: B842E6ABEB6CCE30AAC2F915B70CDD80

    It said it was installed successfully and all I needed to do was reboot. So, I rebooted. But now, 23 hours later I am still watching the two little white dots spinning around the larger red dot stuck in reboot mode. Yes, 23 hours hours lol.

    Now I am asking the community your opinion on what I should do next next. I'm almost afraid to touch it lol.

    Whenever you change from H2OS to O2OS or vice verse, you should make sure to wipe data as well. You should still be able to go into Recovery mode and wipe data from there, then restart the phone.

    Thanks very much for your reply.

    I just read that you must power off the phone before going in to recovery mode.

    Is it safe for me to power off while it appears to still be 'rebooting'?

    Update: Out of the frying pan and in to the fire lol. Now I'm on Oxygen while living in China but unable to continue setup because the phone can not communicate with google servers. Sigh. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd be grateful : )
