Important note for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T users
OnePlus has also mentioned some steps to experience the new features on OnePlus 3 and OnePlu 3T devices. Follow these steps to make the most out of your OnePlus devices without breaking them.
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 found in the downloads page here: http://downloads.oneplus.net/
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)
Don't miss on these...
Besides, OnePlus also mentioned that the Airtel VoLTE feature may not work (have coverage) in some areas and some third party camera applications may not fully work with this update. We expect OnePlus to address these issues in the final update that can come anytime soon. Stay tuned on Gizbot for more updates.
