Update to the OxygenOS Codebase and Software Maintenance Schedule

    Lol before you even freak remember they said oxygen os will always remain the firmware outside china. Hence china will continue to be color os. That is self explanatory. Worry less over merging of codebase because you won't even know

    Yes their optimization with the new Android 11 was very poor. Overheating phones as compared to Android 10 . Hope they release their kernel sources so that we could see alot of custom roms.

    1. Unlock bootloader
    2. install custom Recovery
    3. Root
    4. Enjoy Lineage OS and over 100 of custom android will be smiling down on you. With nightly updates.

    5. The fun does not die with OnePlus Oxygen os only. When they stop pushing official OTA, you still have hope. That's why we love OnePlus, they don't frown on rooting & bootloader unlock and the Device support goes a million miles down the XDA development line. What more could you wish for?

    That's true. Everyone is frowning at them for this matter.

    I would rather step over your advice.

    Fanboi - get out of your bubble. Maybe take baby STEPS.

    It's only Opinion.Look Evey software has its own SDLC , OxygenOS has its own source code written in probably C and with some assembly and C++ . They say they are trying to integrate the codebase with each other what I understood is that the color OS also has its own source code as for example kernel (some models might use same SoC) so rather than using the oxygenOs they might use the source code for the colorOS . So in time they both share same codebase(same source code used to compile the OS) .#opinions

    Then how does that translate into UI and user base experience? What is changing? What isn't? As long as it's Fast & Fluid what should be your worry? Is color os that bad?

    Look what separates OnePlus from other brand is OxygenOS , if it's not unique what the hell would we buy it , I would have gone to oppo with the half of thousand of dollar if I wanted coloros. We student cannot buy phones everytime they pop a new series , I felt being cheated as they didnt delivered a bugfree os . It's a billion dollar company. Look you have your opinion I get that but democracy baby , look at the people. DO YOU THINK THEY ARE SATISFIED WITH HOW THINGS ARE HANDLED. You like Color OS it's okay. But with the way OnePlus is heading it's loosing many customers. Apple and Samsung sales will boom.

    What does this mean for the upcoming and promised update for the OnePlus 6? Is the open beta release still on track for late August '21 as promised?

    (Note: Flagship devices released prior to the OnePlus 8 series will follow the previous schedule of 2 major Android updates and 3 years of security updates. Software update plans for carrier versions will follow the requirements of our carrier partners.)
    Remarkable 🤔

    Well, as the owner of a OnePlus 7T Pro, I think that my next smartphone is going to be a Samsung. Thanks for cutting me off when there was no need to do so. Very disappointed is putting it mildly. 😖
