    Can someone please help me. I'm currently running on OxygenOS 5.0.4 and I want to upgrade straight to the latest OxygenOs 9.0.8. So I downloaded the latest version and locally upgraded it but unfortunately the upgrade failed. So kindly please enlighten me with these:

    Can't I upgrade straight to the latest version if i'm still running OxygenOS 5.0.4? Or should I do incremental update first like updating to prior versions of OxygenOS like 5.1.4 before upgrading 9.0.8?

    Do the upgrade based on system updates instead of manually doing it.

    Thank you for the response. But is there any other alternative way of upgrading?

    Since you are moving from Old Android version to another, I believe it requires major system upgrades, so flashing a new version over old might not work. If it was only incremental updates within one version, flashing would have worked.

    How are you trying to update. Did you downloaded the OTA file or the FULL ROM file of the latest version?

    Hi there, I downloaded the full rom file (1.78 GB file size) from oneplus official site and then locally upgraded it. Do you know any alternative way to do this? I was hoping to skip the prior versions of OxygenOS though if its possible.

    In the the OOS 5.1.4/5.1.5 updates Project Treble was added and that might be why you can't flash the update directly
    The old (which you have installed) OS is incompatible with treble and will not install treble ROMs (my theory)
    Folow the System Updates through the Settings to update without major issues or failure like it was mentioned above

    ooo...
    then you can install full zip file of latest oxygen os available on one plus website.
    installation should not failed because one plus 3/3t did not have project treble support.

    Please note that this is the last open beta for OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T, to move back to official Mp stream here is the Rollback build (this will wipe your data) for the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T.
