Is anyone having issues with VPNs on the beta. I have two VPN providers and neither of them work on Beta 1 or 2.

EDIT: VPN seems to be working now...

I've been running beta 1 since it was available in this thread. No issues at all.

Sam here, AND now I'm on BETA 2. Hoping to make meaningful contributions but so far so good!

Also I'm not entirely sure how much this matters to other beta testers here but the McLaren FP Animation sticks around after updating...

I'm curious if anyone on beta 2 is still getting the random soft reboots like on beta 1?

Did you get the reboots on beta 1 though?

Guys please report if you have any random reboots. I didn't have any yet and running the build since last night. Hopefully should be fixed if existed for any. I recommend to use the full zip please via system upgrade and rooting by either the Magisk install to inactive slot or booting into twrp again via fastboot and flashing twrp installer reboot recovery and flashing magisk V18 or Unofficial 18.1 :good:

I noticed 2 randoms yesterday after installing via local upgrade. I did a reset and has been fine since. Google backup and restore is perfect with this phone.

    Should we expect more beta releases or switch to stable branch?
    Stable is the best bet in my opinion.

    Opinions are nice, but I always used beta versions for 6T, as long as they were available.
    My bad, I miss read your original question.

    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.

    Thread cleaned.
    Some posts were pointless, some were useless, most were complaints,
    few were mature (but had to be removed since they were part of discussion )

    Before posting in the thread , do the following steps.
    1.)Read the thread title and first post.
    2.) Check if the post you are going to make is relevant to thread
    3.)If not , don't post.

    In case you are not happy with a manufacturer/update/firmware/blah-blah-blah then make your decision with your wallets.
    Don't go on complaining around random threads for the sake of complaining.

    @Funk Wizard any news on beta 8 or stable 9.0.13??

    No ETA due to release policy/non disclosure agreement but, both are close. You may have already received the play store update launcher/shelf addition of new features if you opted for beta along with some other updates. The team is working relentlessly on the launcher/shelf and there are many more features planned which i wont be able to disclose currently but all i can say it would turn up to your virtual assistant in the times to come and will give you a lot of information on the go.

    Also some additional features/mode is under final testing on the alphas so it should trickle down soon along with other tweaks and welcome additions.

    Pie build for 3/3T is all cooked and certified and ready to be delivered really shortly now so once that gets out of the way the focus will be more getting the builds out every 10-14 days on betas & 30-60 days on the stable path.

    Also OnePlus OEF Developer conference in to take place in Goa where some of the top developers to come together on one platform early next month which will further step up third party development for the current and upcoming device.

    Lots happening behind the scenes so i would thank the community for being patient so far and request for continued support as there is a lot to come in the next 3 months :good:

    Stay Tuned :highfive:
