My device is Chinese version KB2000
And I'm on Android 11 beta 5 global
I never unlock the bootloader..
Is this need bootloader to be unlocked? And do I need a specific version of Oxygen os to to do these steps or I could do it directly from ob 5??
Please help?

Hi all!
I'm really curious to try color os on my oneplus 8t, do you know if there is any chance to select the Italian language in color os or if there is any possibility to translate the ui?
Thanks 😊

Yeah this isn't working for TMO model, tried a bunch of times and I have the right Qualcomm drivers installed as I've msm my way back from a few other ROMs. Getting a device mismatch error. Maybe someone that successfully installed can rip a copy of the ROM into fastboot imgs or even a zip with a payload.bin?

Going to try and go global and then coloros. But I'm wondering if anyone that's had consistent problems with their 4g/5g cellular connection saw improvement on this ROM.

So this is straight ColorOS it's not the new version of OxygenOS that we'll be able to upgrade to that's just a skin over the top of ColorOS/RealmeUi that the Nord 2 comes with and that eventually all OOS ROMs will become... Wonder if @ProtoDeVNan0 could port that Nord 2 ROM to the 8 series for us?

    Edit: OnePlus officially confirmed that there is no new update A11 ColorOS for 8 series. A12 of the 8 series canceled HOS12 and changed to ColorOS 12. and Color OS stable version of the 8 series is directly ColorOS 12 (based on A12). Release time of Color 12 of the 8 series is currently only officially stated in 2022, there is no specific date.

    It's ALPHA Build, so it can be buggy !
    Requirements
    If you are coming from non chinese variant , first switch to hos then flash color os with msm

    STEPS
    1. Disconnect phone from pc and turn of phone.
    2. Open MSM file and choose H2 from Target section (It's important!)
    3. Press Volume up + down then plug the cable
    4. Press start button from msm
    Repeat this step for oos to hos switch and hos to coloros switch


    Tested on KB2003,KB2000,KB2001


    For Debloat without root

    • Enable USB Debugging ( Settings > About phone > Baseband & Kernel > Tap 10 times on Build number than go to Settings > Additional Settings > Developer Options > USB Debugging

    This is a totally unnecessary step that OP has mentioned in the first post. You can just use MSM tool to go from Oxygen OS to Colour OS , flashing hydrogen OS first doesn't do anything as Colour OS MSM tool has all the necessary files to flash colour OS

    and do you know where we can see which is the latest version for our 8t?
    I use the internet for search and this file here in the thread is the first version for our 8T, and I think when a new version is available the thread owner will post the new version 👍🏿😀
