How To Update Nougat v7.0 Based OxygenOS Open Beta 9 On OnePlus 3

Android's latest OS version v7.0 Nougat has been around for a while, with Google even recently releasing a Nougat v7.1.1 update.

However, OEMs seem to be having issues rolling out these Nougat updates to their devices, with a majority of OEMs not having rolled out the Nougat update.

Few OEMs have however been able to rollout the Nougat updates i.e the likes of Sony, Samsung, Xiaomi, Lenovo (Moto), OnePlus etc

OnePlus has launched a stable version of the Nougat update to its device after previously rolling out beta versions.

The latest rollout from OnePlus is the Android Nougat v7.0 based Oxygen OS which so far has been ascertained to be quite stable and bug free.

Today, I will be touching on how to install Open Beta 9 on OnePlus 3. 


Procedures

  • Download OneBeta 9 HERE
  • Save the file in the internal memory of your OnePlus 3 
  • Save another copy on your PC
  • Install ADB framework 
  • Download and install Universal Android drivers on your PC 
  • Extract and run the .exe file (Universal Android Drivers) as Administrator. 
  • Press ‘Y’ at all the queries asked by the installer when installing the Drivers.

  • On your OnePlus 3 smartphone, Go to "About phone" (found under settings)
