Hi all. I'm confused and not following the post

I am still on 11/19 for my OP8P. I see there is an OTA update available on my phone if I download and install as normal and run Magisk to keep root.

I have not done anything since there is some post here about needing to wipe data or reformat.

In newbie language, if I want to update what do I do from here? Same as normal, or am I forced to wipe data?

Far as I know, you must wipe data before updating with adb sideload.

I am still on 11/19 update since I am a corp traveler and have no time currently to wipe data on my phone going from city/city....just takes too long to get all the apps I need for travel and work set up correctly.

Why is it so dead...like no post.

Is there a new thread for the new 11/24 update?

No feedback either on 11/24 update, or it's just that great there is no issue :)

Hi @AnierinB
Is it possible to bring back advanced navigation gestures? Such as kill an app or switch to the last app when hold swipe left, right or down?

I think it might be this! I have only used it for half a day or so and haven't noticed any bugs.

I've had wireless charging problems and issues with apps not closing off location requests on previous builds but I am not experiencing either of these anymore.

Well worth the format data. Thanks Dev!

since latest v7.3 (A13), gnirehtet started failing to be deteced (https://github.com/Genymobile/gnirehtet) and also adb devices produces 'offline' status... could anyone point out where the issue might be and whether it is due to new google removal of yet another control users have over their phones?

    The OP8/OP8P twrp thread was updated yesterday with a13 compatibility.
    I haven't tried it yet, but I'll do asap.

    A question regarding the last update: "instantnoodlep: Update fw and libs to F.15" means that I have to flash the new firmware before to download and install the OTA? Or I can flash the OTA update as usually?
    Firmware is shipped with instantnoodle/p.

    Only kebab/lemonades users need to manually update firmware before flashing the ROM.
    Thank you for your work. I have been using this rom for a few days and, it is awesome. I personally can't see why anyone who is running Android 13 would choose to be without this rom. This rom brings new life to the oneplus 8 (I'm coming from android 11,tried oxygenos 13 when released and went back to 11, never tried 12, and now I'm using this rom with no regrets. A complete daily driver out of the box. Thanks again. I will be supporting.

    I appreciate the kind words and I'm glad to see many are enjoying our work! There's definitely more to come so stay tuned and #KeepEvolving! If you do wish to support, donations can be made via the link in the OP as the "friends and family" option. :) Much appreciated and thank you in advance!
    Im currently trying to figure out the issue. If i find a solution i will be sure to tell you what it is
    Bro found it, it was the version of the ADB, try this one:

    directly from google works tight away
    To note:

    -Rom has been working amazing, with great battery life and performance, love A13 animations, lot of props to the Dev
    -Using Greatness GCam mod and getting some AMAZING results

    System wise:

    -FP is working a little slower than OOS, (again, maybe just 1 seg longer to read)
    -When I choose the FPUDS animations, they play really fast, like 2.5x the regular speed, is this normal?
    -Warp suppose to charge at 30W but tops I've seen on several charges is 22W
    -Is there an option to lock apps on recents? Can't seem to find it xp

    Apps wise (just to mention):

    -Google Photos got stutter on all my videos when playing (new ones and old ones already uploaded)....but when I play them with other app (google files ie) they play just fine
    -When snap a photo on WhatsApp, it froozes the screen from 3-5 secs and then show the photo taken

    Always available for trying and testing stuff 😋
    Again thanks to the Dev for the awesome work, you revived my 8 Pro 🙏🏽

    Edit 1: G Photos just need an update, my bad!
    Does this zip work with the latest Evo-X rom?
    No, Pixel Experience has the same problem. LineageOS is the only one that is able to be read.

    DO NOT flash instantnoodlep (8 Pro) on instantnoodle (8) or vice versa, else you will semi brick your device! The only way to recover from this is by purchasing an EDL DEEP FLASH cable and using it in-conjunction with msmtool.

    Please note that we ship OOS13 F.10 abl.img on 8, 8 Pro, 8T & 9R to bypass the BL unlocked warning!
    Please note that we ship a Custom logo.img on 8, 8 Pro, 8T & 9R to better match the ROM!

    First Time Install (8 & 8 Pro)
    1. Be on any version of OOS12 or OOS13 (F.15 firmware is included in these builds)
    2. Download vbmeta, recovery, and rom for your device from here
    3. Reboot to bootloader
    4. fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    fastboot reboot recovery
    5. While in recovery, navigate to Apply update -> Apply from ADB
    6. adb sideload rom.zip (replace "rom" with actual filename)
    7. Format data, reboot to system & #KeepEvolving

    First Time Install (8T & 9R)
    1. Be on the latest OOS13 (F.15 for 8T & F.19 for 9R)
    2. Download copy_partitions, vbmeta, recovery, and rom for your device from here
    3. Reboot to bootloader
    4.fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    fastboot reboot recovery
    5. While in recovery, navigate to Apply update -> Apply from ADB
    6. adb sideload copy_partitions.zip (press "yes" when signature verification fails) and then reboot to recovery
    7. Repeat step 5 and adb sideload rom.zip (replace "rom" with actual filename)
    8. Format data, reboot to system & #KeepEvolving

    Please note that if you are not on F.15 (kebab) or F.19 (lemonades) firmware, your proximity sensor will cease to function until you update to said firmware!!

    Update (8, 8 Pro, 8T & 9R)
    1. Reboot to recovery
    2. While in recovery, navigate to Apply update -> Apply from ADB
    3. adb sideload rom.zip (replace "rom" with actual filename)
    4. Reboot to system & #KeepEvolving


    1. Check for update. If available, select "Download and install" (approx 10-15 min)
    2. Reboot & #KeepEvolving

    Firmware Update (8, 8 Pro, 8T & 9R)​


    Updates are out!

    If coming from the previous 09/16/2022 release, OTA will work. For anyone who hasn't updated to that build, you will need to use the new recovery with support for erofs as pointed out here in order to flash the latest build.

    Not sure why you sound so bitter. Everyone makes his own choices, however one can't deny the reality - the stock OS is better at this point of time than any other ROM.

    I've seen people updating to the latest build of Evo and their data wiped without warning. The developer didn't say a word of precaution in this forum that the users data would be wiped upon the update. That's a critical oversight and logcats will not help getting your data back.

    I won't say anything about other issues I encountered myself. I mentioned them earlier in this forum thread but never got any reply.

    While the sixth version of EvoX (Android 12), which was based on OOS 11 worked quite well (I was very happy with it at some point), everything went downhill when the base was changed to OOS 12, including the newly-introduced absence of OOS cam.

    OnePlus 8 Pro can make some beautiful videos with hyperstabilization, which no other camera applications are capable of. However, the developer straight up said he will never add the native camera back. I understand that quite a number of people couldn't care less about OOS cam, but for many that's something that would prevent from using this ROM.

    Some other Android 13-based custom ROMs for OnePlus 8 series do have OOS cam, which means that the absence of it in EvoX isn't a result of a technical limitation, but rather a result of the developer's unexplained reluctance to implement the feature.

    Everyone has their own views and this is mine. I do understand that all of these custom ROMs are provided for free and on "as is" basis. What I'm saying is that this one In particular isn't stable and feature-rich enough to be a daily driver.
    1. Those builds for OnePlus 8/8Pro were updated to use qcom wrapped key encryption changes (which was clearly in the changelog). It should be a given that any changes to encryption would result in having to format data. I also intentionally mismatched the hashes in our OTA updater system so OTA would fail due to such. You know, there's a "Device Support" link in the OP thread you also could have joined to ask.

    2. I've explained my stance on OOS cam multiple times. Just because "other ROMS" include it doesn't mean I have to. My ROM, my rules. Use something else if you have an issue with that as you're under no obligation to use my ROM, just as I am under no obligation to add anything I don't want to. Also, there are very impressive GCAM mods (with the appropriate XMLS) for OnePlus 8 series and we now ship Aperture from LOS, which just added support for OIS as well as 4k/60fps video recording on main lens + aux lenses.

    3. "What I'm saying is that this one In particular isn't stable and feature-rich enough to be a daily driver." The ROM is pretty stable and full of features, so I don't understand what made you come to that conclusion though you are entitled to your own opinion (emphasis on opinion, as it isn't factual). I believe my user count, the amount of work I put into squashing bugs & working directly with OnePlus LOS devs to fix issues in the base device trees, etc shows the complete opposite of your "opinion".
    OPlusExtras are back :)
