So when you did latest update you lost the cyberpunk theme? Did you get boot loop?
no, I didn't. If you getting it and using regular cable (typeA to typeC) while flashing with MSM tool, then you need to try the box cable (typeC to typeC). I have typeC on my laptop and it solved the issue with the bootloop for me.

Almost everything was gone from cyberpunk theme, the only thing left is you can chose theme in the display menu to cyberpunk but it doesn't change anything beside menu colors.

You can get the icons and live wallpaper back without rooting the devise
If root, you can also get back the load, fingerprint and charging animation back with magisk

But so far I'm in love with sounds screen tap and unlock. Didn't find the way to get them back

I'm on HOS so I don't have any issues with updating OTA or the theme. From the last post it seems you lose the cyberpunk theme with latest OOS.

Just flash newest "oem_cust.img" to both slot, you won't lost any cyberpunk element after OTA or Factory Reset. Only "MSM low version HOS" will rewrite "oem_cust" cause bootloop or theme lost.

Flow step 11:

Newest HOS(use tool "payload_dumper" to get "oem_cust1.img"):

Do I need steps 7 and 8 necessarily do be done in order to perform step 11? Cause I'm not sure how to do those properly. TY

I saw your old post, said there was a cyberpunk element before update, that basically means you done all steps before.
If you still rooted, Should only need flash "oem_cust1.img", reboot. :)

So I've managed to start with base Hydrogen for the phone, root with Magisk, flash the patched boot image to Slot A and B then did a local update to this current firmware. I'm at a loss on what steps to take next to have a solution for converting to Oxygen like Shadow had posted on page 11. I wasn't able to find a working local update file for firmware 4.5 that he used. But I do have the most recent OTA available. Idk if I should do other steps now before trying to load Oxygen or even how I should try to load Oxygen. Can I load a local Oxygen update directly and maintain root and have the Cyberpunk goodies working? I'm new to a lot of this but I managed to have 0 bricking scares and did all this in a day so I'm not completely useless lol just need some direction since most of the solutions are from December.

Edit: I do have MSM tool installed and successfully switched to Vanilla Oxygen and then back to base Hydrogen before rooting but not sure if I need to take that route.

Well an update to my previous comment. I managed to get the phone completed converted to Oxygen with everything working BUT Netflix and Hulu don't work and I have no idea what to do about that? I thought with Oxygen the phone would run everything just fine?

Unlock bootloader will decrease "widevine" level, enable "magisk hide" and reboot + wipe cache, should back to level 3(netflix can run but only SD), relock(unroot frist) or reMSM can back to level 1, means no limitation.
Some EU version Oxygen OS user can keep unlock/root and widevine level 1, but no guarantee.
You can download APP "DRM info" in play store, to check current widevine level.
More info

And this thread's most post is obsolete.
8T(KB2000) Oxygen OS with Cyberpunk element, you only need to do: MSM Oxygen OS(11.0.5.6 or above), flash "oem_cust1.img" to both slot, that's it.

I ended up just going for it and read off of several forum posts across here and other sites and managed to replicate steps from each and got the 8t custom flashed for both slots on Global Oxygen with OTA and every single theme working minus the custom dialer of course and I just downloaded APKs for Netflix and Hulu with no issues. Android auto and Hey Google work as well and I left the bootloader unlocked. I actually had it working perfect before realizing I was on the EU Oxygen and reflashed a new proper zip with Global Oxygen and flashed custom images again to be safe then did a local update to the immediate next Oxygen then downloaded the new OTA the phone had available and then the newest update available on Oxygen Updater past that. Phones been working beautifully. If someone can just come up with some solutions to the dialer that would be great. Also haven't rooted the phone again yet because I had read that it's more of a pain with Global Oxygen currently?

Also didn't brick the phone at all during this whole process with 0 previous knowledge or experience with any of these tools like ADB and Fastboot. Took me 2 days of reading and tinkering but I learned a lot.

Not sure if its an issue or me being paranoic but ive noticed that after making it oxygen with all cp stuff it drains a battery like 40%faster. I use to do a full charge once in 40-50 hrs according to settings log and after flashing to o2 its like from up till down, like 14 hrs from 100% to 15%

I haven't noticed anything like that, if anything my battery life is way better than my 7t pro McLaren on wifi and 5g. Sometimes the settings log doesn't notice when you charge the phone and says you've been running the battery longer than it really has. I know a few times it said the last time I charged the phone was hours ago but I had just plugged the phone in halfway through the day. At least on my 7t I noticed that.

    It is fixed. Prior to the 11.0.8.11 update my icons were white when activated which was annoying on the yellow but now they are blacked out in the center as they should be

    Update worked, however I need to highlight that 11.0.6.7 seems buggy to me (Stutter and other stuff)

    Ok. So I got Global 11.0.6.7 update (OTA, incremental, around 500 MB size).
    I updated and it worked (with all cyberpunk elements working and nothing changed).

    Proof:

    1) Cyberpunk8T Phone at Global OOS 11.0.5.6, and showing receiving new update under system-update:

    2) Downloading Global OOS 11.0.6.7 update. Not full update, OTA, incremental, around 500 MB size:

    3) Booting to Global OOS 11.0.6.7 after update and restart (it took a bit more time while booting, but worked at the end):

    4) Showing updated phone to Global OOS 11.0.6.7 with cyberpunk elements intact:


    So, I think flashing cyberpunk cust on both slots before, and then relocking and updating did work.
    Below I will put the steps I took (please note that I tried this on Global version, no idea if EU or IN is the same).

    Steps:

    -1) If you received phone on HOS, do full local update into next HOS in order to ensure cust is flashed to the other slot. (preferably do 2 HOS full local updates just to ensure, recommended versions are OnePlus8T_Hydrogen_11.0.4.5_15.H.19_KB05, and OnePlus8T_Hydrogen_11.0.5.6_15.H.20_KB05. (another option would be to flash cust at this stage, but I am just stating what I did personally).

    0) Use MSM tool to convert to Global OOS (check thread and forums for this step)

    1) Now your cyberpunk 8T phone should be on OOS, and you have all cyberpunk elements working (this is important as it points that param flag for cyberpunk is active)

    2) Unlock bootloader and root the phone (credit to @Kihara777 )
    (for full info about this step check https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...-for-oneplus-8t-devices.4198459/post-84055453 )
    (for root info read https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...in-eu-us-kb2000-kb2001-kb2003-kb2005.4178675/ )

    2a) download this image: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AsJy8Rcn_wjLhLwuunq7W9seKfKT7Q?e=vTKQd0
    2b) Use below commands in adb to push the cust images (google how to to adb commands).
    Bash:
    adb push H19_OTA-oem_cust1-raw.img /sdcard/oc1.img
    (I actually unziped and copied the file to phone root through windows and renamed it to oc1.img, then did adb shell in cmd, and ran the below commands)
    su
    dd if=/sdcard/oc1.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/oem_cust1_a
    dd if=/sdcard/oc1.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/oem_cust1_b
    2c) remove root and relock the bootloader (optional)

    [Alternative to step 2 if you cannot root][Tested by @lexcyn Thanks! ]
    2) Unlock bootloader
    2i) download this file: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AsJy8Rcn_wjLhLwtuwnEWCG4E1bNMQ?e=iRf5jm
    2ii) flash through fastboot using these commands
    Bash:
    fastboot flash oem_cust1_a H19_OTA-oem_cust1-sparse.img
    fastboot flash oem_cust1_b H19_OTA-oem_cust1-sparse.img
    2iii) relock the bootloader (optional)


    3) After rebooting the phone, you should have all elements, and OTA incremental updates should not affect your cyberpunk elements or cause bootloop

    This what have worked for me. Please familiarize yourself on how to unbrick just in case things did not go well.


    Edit: fixed OOS 11.0.6.7 video link, and info about the adb commands
    Edit2: flashing cust files using "dd" commands require the phone to be rooted. Alternatively, I added another flash commands using fastboot that not require root.

    Hi,
    So I have some good news (I think).

    I was trying to flash OxygenOS (Global and EU) on my HydrogenOS (11.0.4.5) Cyberpunk8T. It ended me bricking my device. (Yes, I was fooling around with fastbootd >_<)
    I went to this thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...l-to-restore-your-device-to-oxygenos.4180837/
    and used the MSM tool @OniAraAra linked: https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=320230

    I was able to get back to HOS (11.0.1.2). So this even downgraded my version, and I had all cyberpunk elements.

    Then it hit me. I was trying to figure out how did the sellers flash the global OOS.... and most of xda members here state that their device came on "11.0.4.5.KB05AA ", and it had " SOME Cyberpunk things ".

    So I went and did an MSM restore on my Cyberpunk8T HOS (11.0.1.2) to EU OOS 11.0.4.5 (from unbrick-tool thread above). Guess what it worked. I was able to boot to EU OOS 11.0.4.5.

    Then right away, I did a local OTA upgrade using full package EU OOS 11.0.5.6 (https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...l-to-restore-your-device-to-oxygenos.4180837/).

    I booted to EU OOS 11.0.5.6, have cyberpunk boot animation, wallpapers, theme, icon pack, and sounds (basically everything, let me know if I should check something specific).


    ps: I also heard that local upgrade is not available on Global or India OOS, thats why I tried it on EU. Not sure if one does EU MSM, then flash Global Full OTA locally if that might work or not.


    Edit:
    Uploading some videos (higher quality might some time to process)

    Still stuck at bootloop...
    I have done the following

    MSM to HOS then MSM to OOS (GLOBAL) - local update to newest update full zip (GLOBAL)= bootloop

    MSM to HOS then MSM to OOS (EU) - local update to newest update full zip (EU) = bootloop

    Cyberpunk goodies only work on HOS so far...

    I'm kind of out of ideas, any suggestion?
    Thanks!

    OK, so i finally got Oxygen OS 11.0.5.6.KB05AA (Global/USA) Running on my Oneplus 8T Cyberpunk edition (KB2000) with all the Cyberpunk goodies.. .

    After all the previously mentioned attempts this is what got me through:

    1.- MSM to Hydrogen OS using the link provided at OP.
    2.-- Update Hydrogen OS to 11.0.5.6 using OTA update (incremental update directly on the phone).
    3.- Once Hydrogen complete update to 11.0.5.6. Turn phone OFF.
    4.- MSM to Oxygen OS to 11.0.1.2.
    5.- Once Oxygen OS boot up, loaded 11.0.5.6.KB05AA FULL zip update (Provided on OnePlus website) to the phone's root directory.
    6.- Perform a Local update through the "gear" icon under the system update section.
    7.- voilà!!!

    If you guys have any questions in regards of what i did, feel free to ask me.
    Best of luck~

    So to flash using dd commands, you need to be rooted (sorry I did not notice that at first). See https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...eplus-8t-devices.4198459/page-5#post-84055453

    However, I think flashing the parse images through fastboot might work without being rooted. if someone want to test that here are the steps:

    i) download this file: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AsJy8Rcn_wjLhLwtuwnEWCG4E1bNMQ?e=iRf5jm
    ii) flash through fastboot using these commands
    Bash:
    fastboot flash oem_cust1_a H19_OTA-oem_cust1-sparse.img
    fastboot flash oem_cust1_b H19_OTA-oem_cust1-sparse.img

    I will update my original post to state that flashing through dd command need root, and add this above info as unconfirmed (until someone can test?)
    Was just going to post this - the other command is if you are rooted.

    This worked for me by the way, THANK YOU.

    I was already on OOS 11.0.5.6 so I:

    1) Unlocked bootloader
    2) Flashed cust to a & b via fastboot
    3) Relocked bootloader
    4) Set up phone and restored from my OnePlus backup
    5) Downloaded / installed OTA

    Worked a treat and still have all of the Cyberpunk goodies!

    [Edit] Also worth mentioning I don't have any of the lag issues on the new update, but probably since I wiped the phone and updated.

    I received a Oneplus 8t (Cyberpunk Edition). The phone was supposed to have HydrogenOS as it is a Chinese phone. However, the vendor installed Global OxygenOS (KB05AA). After OTA updates, the phone wouldn't reboot and would get stuck on the Cyberpunk boot animation.

    ________________________________________

    OxygenOS

    I tried updating/restoring OxygenOS using the the MSM download tools here:

    Pros: Google Apps and a Global ROM.
    Cons: No OTA updates and no original Cyberpunk theme.

    Best case scenario for OxygenOS users would be for Oneplus to fix the OTA updates for Cyberpunk phones. This would stop the bootloop problem people are having.

    ________________________________________

    HydrogenOS

    I have made a guide on how to restore HydrogenOS and add Google Apps:

    Pros: Working OTA updates, the original Cyberpunk theme, and Google Apps!
    Cons: A little bit of time and maintenance.

    ________________________________________

    Overall I would highly recommend trying the HydrogenOS solution I've linked above. It works excellent for me, so I won't be pursuing a solution for OxygenOS unless things change. The guide I wrote and linked above should get anyone with a Cyberpunk phone on to HydrogenOS (with OTA updates, original theme, and Google Apps).
