In this post, I will tell you how to install ColorOS 13 (the sister OS and original version of OxygenOS 13) on the OnePlus 10 Pro!

Download: OnePlus 10 Pro ColorOS 13.0.0 C.23

In order to upgrade to this build successfully, be sure that your device is in the last OxygenOS 12 version (A.17) for the region you are in.
These instructions are only for the OnePlus 10 Pro. Please make sure the battery level is above 30% and a minimum of 6GB of storage space is available (more is definitely preferred :D).
Please be sure to back up first.

You've probably never seen it b/c Oneplus/Oppo hasn't released ColorOS globally for Onepus devices. ColorOS 13 is mainly used by Oneplus Phones in China.

Edit: I would also say it is better optimized than OOS 13 b/c it is the original OS that OOS 13 is based on.
I've certainly heard of it but haven't ever thought to commit to install it... If Google play services can be installed then id see it as a custom ROMs of sorts compared to OOS...

How sad android has got when this is what I'd consider a custom ROM.

I may give it a whirl.

I've been considering trying to make a custom rom for the 10 pro as I've done it before for my 7T Pro, but like everyone is saying, the lack of easy access to the MSM tool is just a big obstacle.

very good tutorial
I have a question, I have the oneplus 10 pro just received, it is NE2215 and I have it in version 11.A.17.
I have already downloaded the update with oxigen updater and the file that you recommend for its installation.
My question is, I want to install oxygen 13, if I install I will have oxygen or Coloros? Or since the mobile is the CH version, I cannot install oxygen 13.
I would be very grateful if you can solve this doubt for me, even though it may be an absurd question.

Thank you very much and great job to help

If you want to install OOS 13 you can go for it, ColorOS 13 is just another option. For your questions, yes if you update to ColorOS 13, you won't be able to install OOS 13 unless you roll back to OOS 12 and update to OOS 13.

Ok thank you very much, with the oxygen updater I downloaded this version: NE2215_11_C.21
So I imagine that it will be oxygen 13, right?
And then, to install it, I install it the same as you have explained for the Coloros version?? Just download the OPLocalUpdateAPK file and install ??

Thank you very much again for your help

Cheers

    Hi! Did Aod notification for non-Chinese messenger work with this type of update?)
    Not sure I'll check, but i use the messenger included in ColorOS anyway.
