    You shouldn't use "beta" and "without bugs" in the same sentence, it's forbidden.

    Beta 2 is bug free? [e]1f61c[/e]
    Seriously though... Beta update schedual is normally 1 update per month.
    Beta is beta for a reason. For testing stuff and reporting bugs to make the software better and fix bugs in new features before they enter a stable firmware. Bugs are to be expected in a much higher degree than stable.

    So, I am trying to install the OxygenOS 11 open beta. I have followed the instructions and I can't get it to install. I suspect it's because I don't have root access, but I didn't see any mention of needing root access to install it. I have the install file moved to the highest level directory I have access to without root access, but when I try to run it I get the message in the second screen.

    A hint. It's a zip file. Is it really a zip file? [e]1f609[/e]
    Just hope you know the risks of beta and that later returning to stable will wipe the phone.

    you need to remove .jar extension at the end and move to the root directory

    The instructions said nothing about extracting the file.

    All I had to do was to download the file and make sure you copy it to the ROOT of the file system.
    This is also not for carrier locked phones

    hello. question: what exactly did you do to install it? it downloads to My Drive after I click the link provided..but when I go to system update... there is nothing to click in the top right corner(as stated in the instructions above). where do I find local update? because all I can see is, "check for update." am I doing something wrong?

    Yes, I extracted the file and placed the .bin in the highest level directory that I have access to. Also, my phone should be unlocked at AT&T is my carrier. As I understand it, only T-Mobile and Verizon have carrier locked phones.

    YOU DON'T NEED TO EXTRACT THE ZIP FILE. You need to move the zip itself in internal storage. And you don't need to have root access to install the update.

    Not trying hard enough or reading the posts that solve your issue. Stick to OTA downloads and do us all a favour.

    Shouldn't be a .bin file but obviously since you have seen 2000 other threads telling you how it should be named already I am sure you already knew that. Read the posts instead of posting shite

    In the screen shot you posted, it says "Auto-update is turned on". Based on that, you did use it when you captured the screenshot of your problem. But whatever you say... :confused:
