Alright took the plunge, Magisk/Root is working after moving from OB1 -> OB2.

Steps:
- Install OB2 local ZIP
- DO NOT REBOOT
- Magisk Manager -> Disable all modules
- Magisk Manager -> Install -> "Install to Inactive Slot (After OTA)" v21.4
- Reboot via: Settings -> System -> System Updates (or via 'Reboot' in notification)
- OB2 install done, Magisk/root is working
- Magisk Manager -> Install -> 'Direct Install (Reccommended)
- Reboot
- Re-activate Magisk modules
- Done :)

Just updated from OB2 -> OB3 with these steps.

No issues. Magisk is working fine

Can anyone confirm if the call echo issue has been fixed in Beta 3? It was unbearable in Beta 2, so I rolled back to stable 10. I'd hate to have to spend the time rolling back again if Beta 3 still has this issue.
Not fixed here, calls still go through both speakers

It's absolutely ridiculous that Oneplus allows this to persist. They've really gone downhill as a company this past year. I used to adamantly recommend Oneplus to anyone looking for a new phone. Now I advise them to steer clear.

To be fair, it seems like you're judging them for issues on beta software, that it's not supposed to be for the general public and only for testing.

You should stay on oficial firmware and then pass your judgement based on that.

They state it very clearly that Open Beta's are not as stable as official releases. Bugs are expected.

I'm not getting an echo in calls. Neither are the callers on the other end (like before). I'm on Beta 3

I also couldn't get Google messages chat feature activated on Beta 2. As soon as I went back to 10.3.8, it activated immediate. Can anyone confirm if this is resolved in Beta 3?
It was working on Beta 2 for me. And now on Beta 3 too.

Open Beta 3 is out, updated original post with AFH mirror, unpacked images and rooting guide with required files.

Open Beta 3 AFH Mirror : Download
Default image collection for OB3 : https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=17248734326145745859
Rooting guide and files for OB3 : https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=17248734326145745863

TWRP twrp-3.5.0_9-0-guacamole still not working with fastboot boot, either encrypted or unencrypted. Just sits on "Fastboot Mode"

No source released by the looks of it too : GitHub - OnePlusOSS/android_kernel_oneplus_sm8150

Rom definitely feels snappier to me, unlocking is smoother, launching is smoother, I'm guessing they're starting to remove the beta framework.

Download Carrier Services by google from apk mirror. After you install it, and reboot your phone, you should get a prompt to enable google messages chat features

For those who were boot looping on ob2 and just switched active slot back to Android 10, I can confirm upgrading to ob3 works perfectly.

For those having the calling issues related to speaker, use the stock dialer and not the Google dialer

    Open Beta 4 is now out, downloaded it and trying to get it uploaded to AFH but uploads aren't currently working for me, although both OxygenOS and Oxygen Updater offered it.


    Changelog
    • System
      • Fixed the issue that the battery icon in the status bar is abnormally displayed
      • Fixed known issues and improved system stability
    • Bluetooth
      • Fixed the issue where Bluetooth headsets are silent in aptX Adaptive mode
    Since the OnePlus 7 skipped Open Beta 3, this is the OnePlus 7-specific change log:
    • System
      • Fixed the issue of slow charging rate in some cases
      • Fixed the issue where Voice Wakeup is turned off after a system upgrade
      • Fixed the lagging issue when playing screen-recorded videos
      • Fixed the small probability failure issue with the Double Tap to Wake
      • Fixed the issue that the battery icon in the status bar is abnormally displayed
    • Ambient Display
      • Always-on ambient display is available now (Go to: Settings - Utilities - OnePlus Laboratory - Always-on ambient display)
    • Bluetooth
      • Fixed the silent issue when the Bluetooth transport protocol is changed to aptX or aptX Adaptive
    • Network
      • Improved the stability of the Wi-Fi connection and reduce Internet outages
    Note:
    Enabling the AOD feature will lead to increased power consumption in the build. However, this will be optimized in the upcoming builds.

    If you are rooted already then download the update and let it install but DO NOT REBOOT, then go into the Magisk app and choose the option to install to inactive slot : "Install to Inactive Slot (After OTA)", then let the Magisk app reboot for you. You should remain rooted when it boots into Beta 4.

    I would recommend clearing cache in the recovery after any OTA update.

    From OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 4
    to OxygenOS 11
    without losing your data.

    1.) Download and install OxygenOS 11
    2.) Download keep_data.apk
    You need to install it after the update was installed but before you restart.

    After the apk is installed, run the application, click "KEEP DATA".

    You should now be able to restart the phone without losing your data

    P.S.
    All your applications
    and data remain intact

    Is there anyway to root oxygen 11 stable ?
    1
    isnt twrp working yet? i have twrp and using pixel experience R...isnt it the same concept?

    No, all the "Android 11" custom roms are using an amalgamation of Android 11 core and Android 10 kernel stuff for OP7P, that's why TWRP works on em, it won't work yet on OxygenOS 11 until we get official source.

    Hi Guys, I tested last year the beta of Android 11 and i didnt like the New font. There wasnt an option to choose the old font of Oxygen OS so i returned to Android 10.

    Can someone Confirm, that in the New stable Version there is the old font too?

    Thx

    OnePlus Sans in the new official OnePlus font, the other one won't return by default but there are plenty of font management apps that still include it, they'll usually need root access.

    FontFix is a good one with plenty of choice and some very nice looking fonts.

    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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
