The Mysteriously Mysterious OnePlus 3 Beta Testing Program

    Hello everyone,

    During her last Q&A thread, you may have heard Helen mention that I am working on a beta testing program. Well, it’s time to take a bit of the wrapping off this.

    So here is the deal: we need a few users of the OnePlus 3 ONLY to help us test some new software. We want active testers that will provide good quality feedback. We will ask that you not divulge what you are testing just yet, and will ask that you sign a NDA to make sure everything stays secret (for now). I will also require anyone helping to enroll in and use a program called slack (a group messaging program) to make sure I can keep in contact with everyone. If you are interested, please follow the Google form link below and fill in the required info. We’ll choose about 50 solid candidates to move forward.


    PS: We’re looking to start as soon as possible, and being a tester will require active participation over the next few weeks. This will require flashing custom software and can lead to lost info.

    [Click here for the Google Form]
    Edit: Thanks to all that applied, I might pick a few more than 50 people now with such a turn out. :eek: I have closed the form, and I am not accepting any new applications. I will start contacting people in the next few days.

    Thanks Everyone!

    Love to see this sort of community driven development.
    It's the best part of my job to be able to visit our branch network and speak to the users of the system so they get their voice heard

    Will be honored to participate but only if I am allowed to keep my OP3 rooted

    I think that for proper testing the OS should be as is - without root. Else you might introduce false bug reports.

    Any initiatives for OPX users? Recall that Marshmallow hasnt come yet on OPX.

    "Are you willing to lose data"

    Uh, oh, at least I have TWRP so that won't be a big deal :) I can backup > test > flash back if something fails ;)
