Hello,
since the update today my Phone doesn't recognize wired headphones anymore. Can anyone confirm if this is a software bug or is my adapter just broken?
Sorry, forgot to announce that before it happened.


Today update will "require" Oxygen 11 as a base ROM. 10 will still work, but dash charging and some bluetooth devices will not work with it.

If you upgrade your Base ROM to 11, these will work again.

The best way to upgrade without losing data is:

Download latest Oxygen zip, TWRP, Carbon zip, and optional Gapps/MicroG.
  • Fastboot boot to recovery
  • Flash Oxygen OS zip
  • reboot to bootloader, fastboot boot TWRP
  • flash oxygen zip again
  • without rebooting, flash the latest Carbon zip
  • Optional: reboot to bootloader, fastboot boot TWRP
  • Optional: Flash Gapps/MicroG
  • Reboot to system and find yourself on an updated Carbon installation
Make sure that you do NOT reboot to Oxygen in between as that could cause issues afterwards.

If you want to go the fully "clean" root, clean install the latest Oxygen (to both slots) and clean install Carbon. The above method has worked fine for me so far though :)

The OP has been updated with the new requirement.

Thank you very much for your effort in keeping this device up to date! I had some trouble while trying to follow your instructions, it seems like flashing OxygenOS erases the recovery from the slot. After I managed to flash everything my data was corrupt, but maybe that's only my fault. Now everything works like a charm. Thank you very much!

Think I might have soft bricked. Tried to fast booted to twrp and flashed oxygen oos 11, but didn't reboot to twrp and flash twrp installer first.

Now im able to get to fastboot now everything time to boot to recovery I get crashdump mode. Even from fastboot. Any advice how to proceed? or should I break out the unbrick tool? dont really care if i keep my data.

Try to fastboot boot the TWRP image instead, see if that works. If not, clean install is probably the way to go.

Try switching slots to the opposite (fastboot -a to see which one, fastboot -aa to switch to a, -ab to switch to B). Also whats the issue with EDL?

Was able to switch slot to b slot an boot back into recovery and a working ( still buggy due needing oxygen 11) Carbon rom. a slot is still a mess.

Want to confirm next actions: 1) follow up date instructions as listed above. Which should fix the a slot i think.

2) fix slot a some other way before proceeding

Yep, follow the above instructions (i would start at the first step, so you flash oxygen twice) should fix the issues. Just dont install the twrp zip this time ;)

    Can I sideload Oxygen OS from Carbon recovery or Do I have to use Twrp?
    I had some issues with Carbon Recovery while flashing OxygenOS on some of my OnePlus', so I would recommend TWRP.

    That's why I mentioned to "fastboot boot" the recovery ;)

    Glad to hear its working fine now though.

    CarbonROM is an aftermarket firmware based on the Android Open Source Project. We are dedicated to fast, stable, and feature-filled ROMs, honesty and communication with our users, and openness with our code. We like frequent builds, with the very latest and greatest hardware support and fixes. We strive to not only provide you with the best ROM we can build, but also to give back to the Android community and our fellow developers. For us, this is about creating something we can be proud of and hope you will enjoy.

    Please feel free to look, build, and use our code at CarbonROM's GitHub...

    What is R?
    Our release of Android 11, titled CR-9.0.
    It provides you with the features you need while keeping the focus on delivering an elegant, smooth, and well polished experience. R delivers a set of unique features, like a system-wide font engine that also allows for applying fonts on user apps while supporting user fonts through custom APKs generated on fonts.carbonrom.org. We are confident you'll love it, and there's many more things to discover ;)

    Disclaimer:
    While we make every effort to test these builds as much as possible, we are not responsible for anything that may happen to your device, family, pets, or perception of reality. We ask that you do your part to know your device and know how to recover from problems before you flash! As always, make sure to do backups.

    Support:
    We spend an astonishing amount of time developing this software. We can't spend much time on XDA as a result, so if you need support, please try the following:

    1) Search. Search, search, search. Yes, you. I don't care how unique or important your question is, it's very likely someone has addressed it already. Especially if you're even close to new at this.
    2) Ask a question in your device forum. Someone will no doubt try to help you. Warning: this help may come in the form of telling you it's a dumb question that has been asked before. See step 1 - such are the perils of asking questions when you haven't done the research yourself. Android is about helping yourself.
    3) Join our Discord server or Telegram group! There, you can connect with other Carbon users and our developers, and you can get quicker responses to your bug reports. The invite link is right below.

    Install Instructions:
    You should start off with the latest Android 11 OxygenOS stable build on both slots and then proceed to flash Carbon.

    The easiest way to do that is by installing the latest Version and then copy it by flashing the copy-partitions script made by LineageOS in the recovery. (See install Instructions for the recovery)

    The recommended way to install is using the CarbonRecovery linked below.
    • Download the ROM and optionally GApps, reboot to recovery by flashing the boot.img using
      Code:
      fastboot flash boot fajita-YYYYMMDD-HHMM-boot.img
      followed by booting to recovery through the bootloader.
    • Sideload the ROM. (Apply Update -> Apply from ADB -> Connect to PC ->
      Code:
      adb sideload CARBON-CR-9.0-R-WEEKLY-fajita-YYYYMMDD-HHMM.zip
    • Reboot recovery (to switch between slots)
    • Flash GApps/MicroG through sideload like above (optional)
    • Factory reset -> Format data/factory reset (Make sure to have a backup of your data)
    • Done
    Followup builds can be updated through the builtin CarbonDelta Updater or by dirtyflashing.

    My facebook and insta videos r not playing.. can't able to see them .. how to fix it
    By updating to the latest build as mentioned a few posts above yours.

    On that note:
    I've found and fixed an issue where the device would not be reported as an A/B device properly which resulted in the integrated updater being broken. It will be fixed in wednesdays build (along with August ASBs) but you will need to manually update (through recovery) to that build.

    Thx @Myself5 I appreciate the info. Hopefully I don't run into the same Android Auto issues I did with 8.0. However to be 100% fair I ran into those issues with multiple other roms as well. Something to do how OxygenOS handles the detection of USB vs ASOP I assume on the 1+ hardware. Literally the only thing thats kept me from running custom roms.
