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.

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!
