For some reason after updating Oxygen OS 11.0.1.1.GM21AA on my GM1910
Widevine L1 is back
It was never available before
I'm not sure if Oneplus made something
But here are some screen shots

So are there any special steps to get L1 on an unlocked bootloader or can I just wipe my phone and install the android 11 update over 10?

Ok trying to get my Widevine back to L1 from L3 and can't find a solution. I was in the last OOS10 (widevine L3) then updated to the latest 11.0.1.1.HD65AA at OnePlus chat support request and it's still L3... So I updated for nothing. I don't get it lol. Reason for posting is that I kinda want to try LOS, but not sure if that will restore L1? Thanks

It's hit or miss. I couldn't get L1 with unlocked bootloader, no matter what.
The only way to get L1 back in my case is to lock the bootloader and go back to official.

@RokCruz
Are you suggesting to update from an Android 10 L3 unlocked state to Android 11?
With Magisk already on it?
I already tested on all OB and the lastest stable OOS11 and Widevine stay in L1, even in ROMs Widevine will be L1 if you use any OOS11 stock ROM as base

So, my recommendation is make a backup of your stuff, take off the fear and try by yourself.

I'm trying. :)

But every effort in getting L1 on an unlocked bootloader was without success...
This is why I'm asking. The only difference I can spot so far is that you have a GM1917 and I have a GM1913.

I don't think that it's working just for a specific variant, maybe there's something we are missing.

Are you using Magisk? Magisk hide?

I'm in the same situation as you and I have a GM1917. It goes to L3 once I unlock the bootloader. I have Magisk with Magisk Hide enabled and it didn't work. I'd think that this is the normal situation, though...
I am also in the same situation, I tried everything but with unlocked bootloader I have L3. I have a GM1917

    No need to wipe, just update with official OTA
