Thanks plan on doing this tomorrow

Anyone have a resource to go from release to beta then root?

If you are still on stable:

1. Boot twrp
2. Flash magisk canary.zip here
3. Reboot to system and install Open beta with updater Don't reboot!
4. Go to magisk and install to other slot (after ota)
5. Now reboot

That's what I did yesterday and it worked without issues.

I tried other method with patching the boot.img but got bootloop somehow. Not sure what was the issue.

Did you do patch the boot.img, or did you use another one?

Where did you get the twrp? The latest twrp I find for OnePlus devices is for the 7, nothing for the 8

That's a strange call.

If they're doing a wind down technique to 60hz to save battery they really should just allow 90hz, let's face it, if it's between 60 and 120 then the average is 90 ? Lol

That's my logic anyway, plus I know it's possible as there was an image presented prior to the 1+8pro launch..

Weird call from OnePlus.

Hopefully someone adds a mod for 90hz, I think it'll provide the perfect balance between stamina and performance with minimal visual impact

Yes I hope there will be a way to allow 90hz. I was already searching for it but it seems there is nothing we can do.

    For those of you using the file from mwilky to root make sure in fastboot you use the command fastboot boot new.img first of all and reboot system. Following this go back into fastboot then use both fastboot flash boot_a new.img and fastboot flash boot_b new.img commands to make sure it stays. If this doesn't work I have no idea what the issue is as Matt, myself and others through telegram have it running now. I've added the proper boot img below just to make sure its the correct one as there was a few attempts and different ones. Also added Canary Magisk Manager used. Mine was after a clean flash and mwilky's dirty so should be good both ways.

    Patched boot:
    OOS11 DP3 Patched Boot

    Canary Manager:
    Canary Magisk Manager

    Steps:
    1. First command: fastboot boot new.img
    2. Reboot system
    3. Go back into fastboot mode
    4. Use the second command: fastboot flash boot_a new.img
    5. Do the third command: fastboot flash boot_b new.img
    6. Reboot system
    7. Install Canary Magisk Manager
    8. Enjoy (hopefully)

    Also just to show that it does work:

    Oh first thing that does but me is Netflix doesn't work for now

    Netflix?! However the beta does run very smooth on my EU model

    ★ Netflix doesn't work
    * Keyboard is sluggish when navigation bar is hidden
    * Notifications are missing alignment clock as mentioned and others are off to the right
    * After reboot my FP isn't working anymore

    For the Netflix issue: simply use the latest bets from apk mirror. It's working fine.

    The misaligned clock only happens with QHD+. If you simply use FHD it's fine.

    The fingerprint sensor dies sometimes. But a reboot fixed it for me.

    So the power menu is actually completely broken. Sometimes a completely UI crash is happening.

    I miss the new media controls in the quick toggles.

    The good things:
    - dark mode toggle available
    - one handed is available in gestures settings (actually not working)
    - new notifications sections are there
    - build runs quite stable
    - 5G is working with dual sim

    The bad things:
    - UI is sometimes buggy
    - fingerprint sometimes no working
    - widewine l3
    - not certified (e.g. gpay not working)
    3
    Updated to show OOS differences


    The keyboard issue covering the input text is due to (Hide the bottom bar) in Gestures , turn that on and all is sorted .......(Still a bug though) I spent ages trying to resolve .....?

    Now on OxygenOS 11 DP3 and all is dandy in regards to that specific issue ......?
