How to install the Android Pie update on OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T

As explained above, the update is not done via OTA but manually. If you decide to install it, we take this opportunity to remind you again that it is still a beta version and therefore not mature. Installation is at your own risk.

Installing the beta version is not as simple as this Google can offer, but it's not that difficult. Just follow these steps:

  • Download the ROM package from the OnePlus website
  • Copy or save the file to the smartphone
  • The device can only be updated via the Recovery Update mode:
    • Turn off the device -> Simultaneously press the power and volume up button until the device switches to quick start mode.
    • Access the Recovery option using the volume buttons to move -> Choose English -> Install from internal storage memory -> Select the downloaded zip file -> Select "Yes".
    • Wait for the end of the installation -> Restart
