So, just to confirm... You install stable 11 (EU) over beta 4 (Global) ?
You didn't use any other rom to go back to 10 and then to install stable 11....
Yes. It wasn't possible with the release zip for stable 11.0.0.0 because the build date was before the build date for OB4. But with the 11.0.0.2 stable version it is possible again because build is more recent.
Just realize it formats storage so keep backups in the cloud or on external storage if you need them.
 
I haven't relock my bootloader but have test global stable oos 11 and ob4 and widevine is working fine even on the different custom roms I have tested it still active. Remember to root and hide magisk for it to activate in case you don't have it yet, that simple step might help you.
I tried that, too On beta 4, after unlocking and installing magisk, the device not only remained on L3 but became uncertified in Google Play. It looks like this might be a specific problem to me: I have an HD1907 that was converted by OnePlus to use the general North American firmware of HD1905--these were sold by B&H on closeout at the end of last year. See here:
This is the relevant bit:

I don't know how to account for not having Widevine/becoming uncertified otherwise. It's strange that the behavior is not the same for Beta 4 than for the mainline, and I think I'm the only one whose testified to this so far.

If anyone is interested in flashing some audio mods I know it's been a pain with ob4 trying to make sound mods work, ryuki mods has several that work perfectly. In this case his dts x ultra mods works well ll with OB4.

Beta 5 is out... Did anyone test it... and did it bring macro camra fix for users that use EU version with global firmware, or this beta still freezing camera in some scenario?

I've updated to OB5. No problems at all, but I also had none on OB4. OP7T, HD1900, Global.
I read on OnePlus forum that someone was claiming the camera problem to be solved.

I'm not that brave ... So I have to check again, can someone confirm ... is there still a problem with the camera on OB5? EU version Op7t of the Global Firmware. I'm on OB2 and everything works. I don't dare to go OB5 if macro mode is going to fc cammera again.

i have tested both the Europe version and the global and it was working fine, but to be honest i would just stick to latest stable, the beta program for the 7t is over so they wont be sending out more updates on the open beta channel.

Thank you very much... For me it's just important that camera macro mode, and zoom now working ok if global firmware is on EU device. Everything else is just fine even on OB2
