    Facing too much headache with the layout of notification drawer, settings, Icon, and font alignment, disgusting user experience 😣.
    From the day I updated to in my Oneplus 6 not been able to use the phone like using it before. Many times Camera is shutting down while trying to take pictures in a normal mode 🙄.
    A lot of phone hang issues regardless of 8Gb ram and 179 Gb free internal space.

    How can I downgrade this update? Else will need to change my phone because of these problems.

    On google search for the latest android 10 build version for your op6. Download that. Cut the file and paste it in internal storage. Go to system updates. Click on the gear icon and select local upgrade. The file will show there and install it. However, downgrading wipes all of your data so backup your data and then do it. I had the same issue with my 6t and downgraded to the latest android 10 stable build. The phone was considerably slower in the android 11 update with app opening times slowing down and apps like twitter became impossible to use. Lots of lag. These guys have not done a good job in coding oxygen os 11 to optimise the use of android 11 mainly because they have 100s of phones now and they dont care.

    I'm sorry but OnePlus won't help you unless you purchase new phones yearly from them... Support wanes as new models come out. I have the 8pro and it's already like 2 months that they don't push the download file for the update.....

    These are just incremental updates. I need the full zip to update my phone... They're releasing the incremental for but I am still waiting for full zip of them releasing the next update further proves my point.


    Still shows .7

    If you need the full ROM, download an app called Oxygen Updater. You can choose incremental or full.

    Hi everybody! I have some problems with the downgrade for OnePlus 6. I've tried to download and install the latest stable android 10 version but then the phone said me that "it's impossible to install this update". How can I resolve it?

    Download it from some other website and then select that file from local upgrade option (Keep in mind you will loose all the data as you have to wipe everything, so take a backup before proceeding for the update)
