In my Knowledge you cant OTA OxygenOS on Cyberpunk edition Phone. Only HydrogenOS.
So reinstalling with the every Security update is a must. Or am i wrong.
And no, has nothing to do with root. I don't even have root enabled.
Using KB2000 cyberpunk edition over a year, got every OTA(KB05AA/KB05BA both can), and you can download full update.zip to update. there must be some big misunderstanding here.

how do i flash the image?
Start reading this thread from page 1, there is a discussion of how to do everything and the final way that works for everyone.I was helping a guy from Italy to go through the points. If necessary, I can give you a brief excerpt on the points. The moment of this help, it is in Italian, and even through a Google translator. But the friend was pleased, because he did everything according to this instruction. Even taking into account the transcription of one language into another :cool:

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.

Follow step 11:

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

You can update to OOS via local upgrade option.
Preserving cyberpunk theme is possible, though not very straightforward.

Well, after the update to Android 12 it seems that we'll need to do some research again.

I've repeated the same steps but extracting the oem_cust1.img from the latest Color OS build (C.17).
The result looks like this, but the text is a white mess and it's buggy amongst many apps.

Screenshot_2022-03-25-18-19-19-11_b783bf344239542886fee7b48fa4b892.jpg

The app drawer, notification & ringtone sounds, boot animation, camera effects all are looking good and working fine.

It seems that the ColorOS notification drawer is totally different than the OxygenOS, and that is probably the main reason for this weird behavior, does anyone know if there's an easy way to port the notification drawer from ColorOS to OxygenOS?

I use payload dumper to extract payload.bin from New coloros 12 to try to have cyberpunk theme on my original cyberpunk 8t.

But i can't see oem_cust on payload_output ???....

No solution so far, to get the oem_cust you need to get the ColorOS payload, the OOS one won't have it.

@g4seb

I was able to get the charging animation from ColorOS 12, by running the msm tool to OxygenOS and updating it with the OOS 12 right afterwards(do not flash the oem_cust1, it was probably kept on a secondary partition). But the UI issue remains the same, the real issue is that the new ColorOS 12 notification/quick action bar is totally different from the OOS version, I dunno how to port that over, as this is out of my knowledge level.

@R3pl0id : where could i download thé good color OS ?

In fact, what is exactly the problem? Just notification center ? No possibility to change the color of text ?

Here's the official link to ColorOS 12 C.21

Yup, the notification center is all blanked out to most apps, also this issue happens on the settings app, I dunno if there's an easy way to change the color text, but if you know any solutions that could be helpful.
Thanks for link. And After you just use payload dumper and it's ok ?

In accessibilty you Can put color correction...or perhaps with substratum ??

To have full cyberpunk, you just flash oem_cust ?

And the Cyberpunk theme itself has been updated to Android 12 in the case of ColorOS? In China, after all, OnePlus has replaced HydrogenOS with it, and you might think that compatibility has become better. But I also lost almost all the Cyberpunk design when upgrading to OOS 12, only the Samurai wallpaper in the screensaver remained.

    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)

    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).

    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.
