For those who were on previous versions of OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro, we appreciate your active feedback and for reaching out to us.

If you don't have the Community app installed on your device, feel free to download it HERE. You can check here for more information on the integrated Feedback tool.

Please note:
  • If you have already flashed an Open Beta (you are currently running the latest Open Beta), you will receive this new build as an OTA.
  • If you are not running open beta software and would like to, please refer to the flashing instructions and the full ROM on the downloads page here.
  • Once you migrate to the Beta path, you will continue to receive Open Beta OTAs. You will no longer receive the regular Official Stable OTAs.
  • Moving back to the Official OTA path from the Beta path will require a full install and clean flash (full wipe of all data and cache).
Make sure to let us know how you feel about the beta builds here in the thread too. We are watching.

Check your downloads after completion, for integrity, by confirming MD5 checksum, I would recommend the following for Windows : WinMD5 Free - Windows MD5 Utility Freeware for Windows 7/8/10

Both OnePlus's download site and Android File Host will show the MD5 which should be shown for your completed download, if your file doesn't match then it's not a good download.

Downloaded and Installed over magisk rooted OB19, flashed TWRP in EXKM, opened Magisk Manager and installed Magisk to Inactive Slot, rebooted and all is working well.

Edit: TWRP flashes when trying to boot to recovery and never opens. Gonna try a few things.

Edit 2: No functioning TWRP for OOS11 currently, flashed stock boot.img and now unrooted with stock recovery and boot. Gonna stay here and wait until TWRP is working for us.

Can you confirm TWRP and Magisk versions? I had tried TWRP with the Hydrogen Beta and it froze on fastboot, went back to stock release OOS cycle but looking to install this beta later after work.

I already have latest TWRP and 21.4 Magisk

I had to reflash the stock boot img.

Boot to fastboot mode (hold both volume and power), and install the stock boot.img from the full OTA. Here's a download link for you if needed: https://drive.google.com/file/d/16QVeHEGiJS_3aGIFM-CKq-3kiXW2GCeP/view?usp=sharing

Command will be "fastboot flash boot c:\users\whateveryourusernameis\downloads\boot.img" and then you can restart and it will boot.

From Telegram on some custom ROM threads, there's no working TWRP for OOS11 at this time.

Can anyone test if any of the usual methods (like adb shell settings put global policy_control immersive.full=*) will hide the status bar / nav bar? If I can't hide the status bar here and mitigate the risk of burn in, I don't want to go to A11 yet

Anyone else getting a screen flash like the OS is attempting to enable one-handed mode or something? I've had it in Chrome and YouTube so far where a scaled down version of the app is popping up on the left side.

Anybody know when we're getting AOD? I'm quite disappointed it still isn't there...:confused:
Also the insight inactivity display looks quite weird since it doesn't go all the way down.
Of course I understand that that is because of the fingerprint scanner, but having it be a little bigger would look good imo.

Seems like I have lost VoLTE after updating, and PDC is not working properly, followed the adb method for Android 11 but it says Connection Not Ready. So I'm not even sure if updating switched back the PDC profile or not.

Supposedly next OB, depends on bugs and development though.

    Managed to root the OxygenOS 11 Beta 1 ! :D

    I've uploaded all the files required (including rooted and default boot.img) and instructions here : https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=17248734326145719260

    Magisk 21.4 is applied along with Magisk Manager 8.0.7 (which is included in the zip)

    Read the instructions carefully, I'm not responsible for bricked phones ;)
    If you manage to brick it then head for the MSM forum thread


    SafetyNet Attestation fails but that's happening on the Android 11 custom roms so should come in time, actually it seems to work after enabling Magisk Hide.
    9
    It does have the new AoD actually, if you enable it! Run this in a root terminal:

    setprop sys.aod.debug_support_always_on 1
    pkill systemui

    Now the option to enable it will appear in the settings.

    I am currently rooted, with twrp. I want to clean install this and keep the stock recovery for now since twrp isn't working anyway. How can I do this and also keep root?
    I did the following:
    Downloaded the Zip file (Full OTA) using Oxygen Updater.
    Went to settings, system updates, local update and clicked on the file.
    When it was done I did not reboot, went to Magisk, installed to the inactive slot, and then reboot. Everything is working fine except I don't have TWRP anymore but I'll wait for a fix on that, not that important to me.
