    Hello everyone,

    We are very excited to share with you the first Android 13 Beta as part of the Developer Preview Program for the OnePlus 10 Pro. During this time, we have been working tirelessly to provide all OnePlus 10 Pro users with an early opportunity to experience the latest version of Android.

    This build of Android 13 is best suited for developers and other advanced users. By providing access to Android 13 at an early stage, app developers and other early adopters in our community are able to start creating even better software experiences. That said, we do not recommend flashing this ROM if you have little to no experience in software development, if you expect to use the device as a daily driver, or if you have no experience flashing custom ROMs.

    Known Issues
    • All data will be cleared while flashing the build or rolling to Android 12
    • Some issues with system stability and performance
    • Unable to access Shelf
    • Unable to move the documents in My Files
    • Some apps may not function as expected
    • Unable to record voice to active Voice awake on Start-up navigation page
    • Some features of ORoaming may not function as expected

    For the people who want to download this because they "don't like" OOS12, I'd suggest: DON'T, only if you exactly know what you're doing.

    To all you who want to try, this is the most important part

    Caution

    BRICKING your phone, read the instructions carefully, and be 100% sure of what you are doing. Please always backup your important data before flashing

    I hope people will ascertain the risks before updating their device. This is not for everyone. This is not your daily driver version. Flooding the forums with “this doesn't work” “this fails” “OnePlus ruined my device” thread would change nothing.

    Weeew that was quick

    Even before Google IO

    Is this build based on Googles newest Android 13 Beta 1 or based on the first developer previews?

    The naming between both is always mixed up
