You do not need to wait for the OTA from OnePlus to be available in your region. OnePlus rolls out updates gradually so as to not overload their servers, but this may mean that you have to wait 2 or 3 more days to get the OTA available on your device for download. But there's GOOD NEWS!

You can install immediately an OTA is available for download regardless of where you are in the world by using a VPN app!

It's easy, I will introduce you all to this Beautiful, Lite yet effective VPN app which has UNLIMITED Bandwidth and is 100% FREE!

The name of the App is Savage VPN. In a few simple steps you can start installing an OTA that isn't yet available on your phone yet.

1. Download the Savage VPN App from the Google Play Store. Or Click -> https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...agevpn.android




2. Click the location icon at the top right part of the screen to change location. Select CANADA or GERMANY (Canada works first mostly).




3. Click CONNECT.




4. Go to Settings > System Updates. It will check Automatically. If it doesn't click 'Check For Updates' at the bottom right corner of the screen and et Viola! You can now download and install the latest OTA immediately!



P.S
- OTA are not targeted to regions. You will be installing EXACTLY the same thing you wait 2-3 days more for. So why not install it now?!
- You do not have to stay connected to the VPN to download. You can disconnect IMMEDIATELY the update is found.
- If you have Root. Only download FULL OTA updates and look at other Root threads on how to handle Root with TWRP or Magisk and what not.
- If you need a VPN Solution, you can always use it. If you need more time, Simply Click. 'GET MORE TIME'.

I hope this thread helps someone. Cheers!

Or download Oxygen Updater from the Play Store.

No need to start a VPN everytime you want to check for a new update. This app notifies you when there is a new version available. The only downside is you have to update as a local update, it will not do it automatically.

That's another method, yes. This will be more familiar to some as they are already used to installing OTAs normally.

Some people brick their phones using that app too because they played with the settings or it didn't get detection of device right.
