OxygenOS Open Beta 8 (Nougat) for OnePlus 3

Hey everyone,

First of all, we want to extend a huge thank you to all of you who have been participating in our beta program. It's been a huge success. By sending in your feedback, bug reports, and general thoughts, you've made OxygenOS even better, and we're making improvements faster than ever before. Today, we have a particularly exciting announcement: Open Beta 8 – built on Android Nougat - is available now for the OnePlus 3.

Some key updates in this build:
Upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat
New Notifications Design
New Settings Menu Design
Multi-Window View
Notification Direct Reply
Custom DPI Support
Added Status Bar Icon Options
Added Quick Launch For 3rd Party Applications
Improved Shelf Customization

This build will not OTA to current open beta users. You can download the build here:

OxygenOS Open Beta 8

[Known Issues]
Android Pay may not work correctly
Some stability/performance issues
After upgrading to Android N, you will not be able to directly downgrade back to M builds. Our customer service team has a special build of Android M that will allow you to downgrade, but this will format your device. If you'd like to flash back to M, please contact Customer Support.

Please keep in mind that this is beta software. This build will not be as stable as our official OTA releases. Given that this is a shift to a brand new version of Android, there may be more bugs in this build than previous Open Beta builds. By installing this update, you accept the potential risks.

Please let us know what you think! For general feedback, feel free to reply to this thread. If you find any reproducible bugs, we'd hugely appreciate it if you could fill out a report on our new Bug Report platform.

Thank you for helping us build a better OxygenOS.

Thanks, and enjoy!

For Users facing encryption problem with Modified TWRP:

1. Backed up everything to PC (whole of Internal Storage including and not limited to Titanium Backup folder, Music, Pictures, etc)

2. Reboot into TWRP 3.0.2-1.28

If you were already encrypted, it asks for a password (pattern or pin), provide and if it goes through, great and to step 4, If you’re stuck, read on…

TWRP doesn’t accept your password and says ‘Can’t Mount Storage: Connect to PC and Type these in Fastboot:

i. fastboot format userdata
ii. fastboot format cache
iii. fastboot format system
iv. fastboot erase recovery
v. fastboot erase boot
vi. fastboot reboot
vii. fastboot flash recovery <twrp28>

3. Reboot phone into Recovery
4. In TWRP, Wipe – Format Data. Confirm.

5. Once done, you can transfer from PC to Phone or use a USB OTG, the files your need to flash:
* OnePlus3Oxygen_16_OTA_016_all_1611302306_cc5d2327b 14247fd
* SR5-SuperSU-v2.78-SR5-20161130091551
6. Flash ROM (OnePlus… file)
7. Flash SuperSU SR5
8. Flash TWRP AGAIN
9. Reboot into Recovery
10. Reboot System

Boot would take about 4-5 minutes on an average
