OnePlus has Stopped the rollout of the Hottest OxygenOS Open Beta Upgrades for the OnePlus 5$35,999 and OnePlus 5T after some users complained that the Newest Variants bricked their devices.
The Chinese firm also pulled the latest OxygenOS Open Beta upgrades for the OnePlus 6$39,999 and OnePlus 6T$37,999 to avoid any conflicts. The business in a forum post on Wednesday acknowledged it obtained consumer reports of upgrade collapse and bricking of the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T after installing the newest OxygenOS versions that were released earlier this week. Additionally, it provided a workaround for affected users to help them regain their OnePlus phones.
“We have received reports of OTAfailure and Apparatus not powering on after updating to the most recent open beta builds on OnePlus 5 and 5T, based on these reports we’d paused the OTA update,” OnePlus’ International Product Operations Manager with username Manu J wrote from the forum post on Wednesday.
These bundles can manually be installed after obtaining the retrieval mode by holding the volume down and electricity key for five minutes.
For users who aren’t able to access the recovery mode, OnePlus has guided them to reach out to the official customer support .” [T]he client support is aware of the issue, and they’ll help you flash the package , or you might also visit your closest ESC,” the executive noted in the forum post.
Notably, OnePlus has not detailed the number of consumers who are affected by the latest issue. This is not likely to have impacted the masses because the Open Beta programme is exclusive to ancient testers.
The updates included optimisations for the screenshot feature, support for fast reply in landscape mode, and some gaming style enhancements. Similar changes were provided to the Open Beta participants having the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T, except some improvements into the clock and especially the OnePlus Laboratory function for the OnePlus 6.
