I'm sorry to ask... is there a guide for flashing PE on this phone?

Idk how to unlock the bootloader / Install it without TWRP, which is not available for this phone.

Is your device a T-Mobile branded device? If so, the process may take up to two weeks for all of the information to go through. You basically either have to have your device fully paid off and on the service for more than 20 days or you can message mobdeep (I think that was their name, but I will double check for you) with the account last name and phone number. From there, they'll give you further instruction regarding a SIM unlock (which is the first step to unlocking the bootloader.

Next, you'll want to get a OnePlus unlock token, which takes exactly a week from the time you request it. Detailed instructions from OnePlus here: https://www.oneplus.com/support/answer/detail/op588. This is the website you go to for the unlock token request. https://www.oneplus.com/unlock_token

Please keep in mind that a bootloader unlock will factory reset the device!

Once you setup your device after the unlock (I recommend just skipping through everything really, it's gonna be flashed away again soon), you can either manually flash every img in fastbootd (which can be accessed by adb reboot fastboot when the device is on or rebooting to the bootloader and executing fastboot reboot fastboot), flashing the PE recovery image and then sideloading the ROM with ADB, or you can use my automatic script that only works on Linux at the moment.

I'm here if you need help :)

Edit: message this dude on XDA with the required information https://forum.xda-developers.com/m/mobbdeep.6958558/

This rom is so great but I have a couple issues.

There's no native parallel apps support but I found that the app "shelter" creates a work profile and it works just as great. I highly recommend.

also, the always on display has to slightly correct when turned onto the lock screen, basically the AOD is off center, or the lock screen is. (small but is extremely noticeable when you start unlocking your phone a lot)

Also, launchers like shut off in the background? They take a second to load when you go back to the home screen except for the stock one. Driving me crazy!

Stock camera app can't use wide angle camera. (IN2017)

Hoping these all get improved with the soon android 12 update, have a good one, love your work!

EDIT: I'm also on pixel experience plus

I second all of this. To work around the ultra wide issue, I installed GCam and PX Camera (latest versions of both will do just fine).

I have discovered a bug. When the device is done playing YouTube HDR content ( which weren't display correctly) the screen will shift to green and break the fingerprint scanner.

Hello, I have a Tmobile OnePlus with A11 and the August patch, when I perform all the steps for the installation in the first boot it gives me an error of "system ui isn't responding" and it does not detect the simcard or the wifi, shortly after I get a "Qualcomm CrashDump Mode" error

If you are rooted with magisk you can use riru lsposed + xprivacylua magisk hide to get safteynet working (my OP8 is on the July patch due to no updates yet).

The only major downside to this method is it will break google call screening. You can re enable it but 3-4$ donation is required to enable the manage hook assignments feature.

Hi.
Not really sure about AOD, but I guess that's a feature, not a Bug. I believe its to prevent screen burnout changing the position of the clock so the leds being use aren't always the same.
The launcher problem is a well known one, and the only workaround is or to use the stock launcher, or use the magisk module quick switch (find it in magisk app, modules tab). The only current launcher supporting quick switch and android 11 is Lawnchair 11 beta (find it in telegram channel).
Stock camera, same problem as usual. Really hard for devs to do anything without oneplus to release the source.

    why does it have to be done that way thru adb? maybe twrp flashable to come because i doubt I'll try to install it that way. I'm excited by the prospect of the rom very much but I'll let a few guinea pigs go first and keep tabs on this. Is the lack of custom rom development because developers are waiting for android 11 or what? One of the main reasons I decided on OP8 was because i thought the forum would be very active and its been kinda disappointing thus far. Does anyone know when theres gonna be the official android 11 update not this open beta bullshit? also when an official twrp recovery?
    First of all, it has to be flashed through Fastboot because TWRP for Android 10 isn't really finished yet, devs have a hard time finding ways to comply with Android 10 new system, that's why there are a lot of those Fastboot ROMs.
    Second of all, those "Guinea Pigs" are users that allows OP to release the official OOS build you're eager to have. You just wait for it to come and you call users who report bugs "Guinea Pigs"... Remember that those who install Open Betas are the ones that make this phone not a crappyy pile of bugs bad glitches, and represent the "active community" you're complaining of rn. Get off you high horse man...
    Finally, the "lack of development" is indeed partially because devs are waiting for Android 11, and it has always been like that for every newly released OP phone. Once they age a bit that's when the amazing community comes together to build, to TEST, and finally release ROMs.

    How to install magisk on pixel experience rom?
    Get extracted boot.img and put into phone, open magisk and patch boot.img. Magisk outputs a patched boot.img in downloads. Transfer to pc where ADB lives, reboot to bootloader and enter fastboot flash boot patched_boot.img. Should flash to phone and Magisk has given root.
