Hey everyone,

 • No more crashes in the Launcher with apps in full-screen display
 • Got rid of blank screens while clearing up the background apps

Note:
1. Please keep in mind that this is beta software. These builds are not as stable as our official OTAs. By installing this update, you accept the potential risks.
As always, please share your feedback through https://forums.oneplus.com/feedback/. For more information on submitting bugs or suggestions please refer to How to report a bug and feel free to share your product suggestions via the Community app (please assign the category as OnePlus 6/6T with Android 10).

Please note:
  • If you have already flashed an Open Beta (you are currently running the latest Open Beta), you will receive this new build as an OTA.
  • If you are not running open beta software and would like to, please refer to the flashing instructions and the full ROM on the downloads page.
  • Once you migrate to the beta path, you will continue to receive Open Beta OTAs. You will no longer receive the regular Official Stable OTAs.
  • Moving back to the Official OTA path from the Beta path will require a full install and clean flash (full wipe of all data and cache).

Make sure to let us know how you feel about the beta builds here in the thread too, we are watching.

Warning: Do not flash partial update OTAs (under 1 GB) on a modified/rooted device! If you want to use partial OTAs, you must first flash the full OxygenOS zip that it applies to, and then flash the partial OTA from stock recovery. Flashing partial OTAs from TWRP will either fail or soft brick your device. You can return to a usable state by flashing one of the above full zips in recovery.

Announcement & Disclaimer

While we are on the Beta Thread, I thought this goes without saying, but it looks like some users do not read the thread before they flash the builds. Thus i have added the disclaimer just to make them aware that reading the thread is necessary and i would appreciate if they also participate in the discussions rather than just doing an update and remain silent.

Currently the OTA is paused and thus i have removed the existing build mirrors. It is likely that we will get a new build in the coming days and till then, i would request users to stay on beta 11 and those who have already updated, no need to panic, please stay on beta 12. I will update the OP once the rollout begins again with the updated builds.

As i have always said Feedback whether good or bad is extremely important to Me and OnePlus, as it is only on the receipt of such information, OnePlus can assess and improve on the software experience, so please don't shy away from sharing your experience.


Needless to say but i have added the disclaimer on the OP. This is a Beta Thread and things can go bad sometimes. I always recommend to take backup before you proceed or flash a new build. If this is your primary device i would always recommend to stay on Stable builds instead of beta or you should have everything backed up and ready to loose all before you start.

What OnePlus has achieved today is mainly because of its active community and early supporters and OP would like to keep it that way and maintain its focus on the community while building the software to enhance the user experience.

Thank you for your continued feedback and support.

Never Settle
