Rollback Build for OnePlus 6 Open Beta Testers

Hey Everyone,

To assure that our Open Beta program runs smoothly, and to prepare the addition of new devices to the program, OxygenOS Open Beta 6 will be the last open beta build for the OnePlus 6

We would like to thank all of you that joined our open beta testing program and shared your feedback for nearly two years. Your participation has helped ensure quality stable builds for the rest of the community, while also helping shape numerous features.

In order to ensure that you have a smooth transition back to the stable software branch, we're releasing a special rollback build that will install OxygenOS 10.3.2 on your phone. After that, you will keep getting stable updates as per the maintenance schedule. Please make sure to back up your data. This process will completely wipe all the data on your phone. To help you backing up your data, we are sharing a small tutorial below.

How to back up your data:

OnePlus Switch can help you back up and restore all your contacts, call history, short messages, multimedia files, system data, and apps. Please bear in mind that app data will not be backed up, so make sure to sync apps and games that support this feature.

1. Go to Settings - Utilities - OnePlus Switch and select Backup and Restore - New Backup.
2. Select the data types that you want to back up, and tap Start Backup.
3. Important - Once the backup process is finished, make sure to copy the [opbackup] folder present on your phone to your computer using a data cable, the cloud using the internet or external storage using an OTG cable. This folder can be copied back to the phone after the rollback is concluded, and the backup can be restored through OnePlus Switch.

How to rollback your device
1. Download the appropriate rollback package - OnePlus 6
2. Open the File Manager and move the downloaded .zip package from the Downloads folder to the root directory.
3. Open Settings - System - System updates, press the cogwheel on the top right corner, choose the Local upgrade option and select the rollback file.

How to restore your data
1. Go to Settings - Utilities - OnePlus Switch and select Backup and Restore - Restore Backup
2. Select a type of data to be restored, and tap Start Restoration. A moment later, the phone data will start being restored to its former state.

Thank you once again for your extended support.

Never Settle :)
 
Just saw the post about the beta ended for OP6, i want to know, if i wait for next stable that is more newer than the beta build, and install that over the Open Beta 6, will it still wipe the data?
It worked on previous versions without any wipe, when stable had a security patch newer than beta. Maybe it will work again? Who knows, wait and try.

35th beta, but 5th or 6th A10.
Just flash the latest full production version as you normally would. No data loss.

    Just going to do this. Normal flash on top of ob35 will cause no data loss? The thread says it will wipe. It would save me so much time if data is not wiped

    Instead of repeating the very common question over and over try searching for the same in the thread, hardly takes a minute.

      Hey everyone,

      Here are the latest open beta builds for the OnePlus 6 and 6T.

      Changelog
      Code:
      [B]System:[/B]
       • Now unlock the LockBox without any problems in File Manager
       • No more crashes in the Launcher with apps in full-screen display
       • Got rid of blank screens while clearing up the background apps
       • Updated Android security patch to 2020.03

      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.

      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:
