Hello.
First, thank you.
How to go back to OxygenOS? If users don't like or have some issue.
Does it matter if routed or not ?
I saw that Color OS 12 have "Rise phone to ear to answer a call". This is great.

Do you still get annoying VoWifi permanent notification and does anyone is using Work profiles (I'm not able to even change password in he work profile...) ? Also my phone is rebooting randomly when connected via BT in the car in combination with Android Auto and mobile connection is extremely unstable, I hope they have fixed it otherwise I'm probably going to throw this mobile away :-( This is valid for Beta 2 btw.

I don't understand people saying that Color OS C36 Stable is running fine for them. For me, so far I got following issues :
- the default DPI 360 is too low for me, changing to 420 DPI is much better but it get reset after restart
- you can't configure to launch camera using double Power button press, now it's Volume UP/DOWN
- Developer settings is getting "disabled" after reboot (and settings are reset) to prevent 'phone to be unstable'
- by default MOBILE DATA are set to be Always enabled (can be turned off in Developers settings)
- I can't force to have same PIN/Password for Work profile - it doesn't stay enabled
- Google and other apps are frequently loosing permissions, eg. to even access contacts (doesn't matter if Permission monitoring is disabled or not)
- Android Auto doesn't work for me and it anyway asks when connecting always to choose connecting method (why????)
- phone is full of Chinese crap (not all aps can be removed while I believe during update they will anyway install back)
- phone is also heavily integrated with some Chinese Cloud solution - HeyTap Cloud and some of their Chinese payment method
- Nova Google Companion doesn't work anymore, didn't have time to take a look on it yet

The good thing - annoying VoWifi notification is gone (was present in the OxygenOS Open Beta).

So, I will for sure switch back to OxygenOS (aparently I'm going to loose ALL User data?) BUT I don't understand one thing.

Are we getting OxygenOS final 12, or it's ColorOS 12 as final version ? (yes I know about merging yet I don't get the Beta 12 OxygenOS stuff).

Thank you.

It is very stable, VERY nice, but as someone mentioned before, with default language as Amerikin English, I get a lot of apps that default to chinese. I am still trying to get my oneplus health watch to pair today. Overall, I want to see this brought to America, but, more globalized.

Thank you OP for letting me check this out! Testing Android Auto soon.

Thank you thank you thank you!

I tried upgrading from C.31 (latest beta), but device went into bootloop. Did reset to get out of bootloop and update didn't seem to be installed. Any ideas?

Bruh. Also, I turn off VoWifi since it causes a constant wakelock. VoLTE is good enough for me.

It's Beautifull that i can uninstall google BS !!!
I love the gesture that i miss on Oxygen OS, "Rise phone to answer a call" . There is more on Color OS "Rise phone to make a call"
