yeah but aren't those steps for oos builds via local upgrade ? I'm on aosip (custom rom)
Do a factory reset in twrp
Don't reboot
Flash last pie beta
Flash twrp installer
Reboot to twrp
Reboot to system
Reboot to recovery
Flash latest Q beta
Flash twrp installer
Reboot to twrp
Flash magisk 20.1
Reboot to system.

Should work. Did for me whenever I used custom roms.

The link I posted isn't downloadable from within magisk, this version downloads it driver/magisk module itself.
Okay I shall try it.
Edit: it's not working.

I am experiencing a medium stuttering on this OB2 as well as OB1 on Android 10..
Anyone experienced this also?

Friends says that it was the launcher..

stability in beta 2 is unfortunately noticeably worse than in beta 1
some games (e.g. CRS2 Racing) FC after a while (on beta 1 it was okay)

Every game that I'm play, will freeze or flickering after certain time, both happen with OB1 and OB2.

A little bit of Google, I'm found out the culprit of it was Android 10. It the Google end to fix this.

The Picture-in-picture big for YouTube is still there. It only does it on this phone, none of my other phones.

When the PiP window is invisible until you touch it, or sometimes not at all there.
When this happens YouTube is not even in recents or notifications.

Just annoying.

Everything else seems great, it's 10x more stable than the last build. No more major freezes or glitches and has amazing battery life even under heavy use.

I have no such issues. Did you factory reset? Did you update the games?

Clean Install, factory reset, two of my friend that are using android 10 got this issue too, it android 10 bug.

Try playing some heavy game like Call Of Duty etc².
Or you can do a little Google search for this issue.

And when I return to Android 9, the problem gone.
May I know what game you are playing? And what hour do you spend playing it?

    Guys just like to mention here that BETA is its initial stages so expect bugs and broken functionalities. We try our best to test all major functionalities before moving the build from a closed stage to open for you guys to test it further and share your findings as there can be infinite possibilities of something still being broken and that is were you guys come into spotlight :fingers-crossed:

    If you take a look around, there are not many OEMs who are offering 9.0 builds even in beta. I don't want to take any names here but some of them have much bigger development teams, staff and resources. We are still working towards the a better and sweeter pie experience for you and that will not only cover the current devices, but will trickle down till the OnePlus 3/3T, for the record, there are very few 2016 devices which will get the pie treatment.

    Having said that I truly appreciate your support and participation in OnePlus Beta Program and consider you guys our core community members who give us our true feedback, good or bad always valuable to us.

    Thank you once again for your continued support and active participation in the beta program, expect bugs and subsiquent fixes, its a cat and mouse chase :laugh:

    Let's keep the thread moving forward towards positive contributions and a better, sweeter pie experience :highfive:
