OnePlus 5 to get faster software updates

OnePlus 5 to get faster software updates

The new update is now available for the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T and if you wish to install the update, it is recommended to take a backup of all the files before proceeding.

This new Open Beta should still be based on Android 8.1, but the addition of Treble support would be a big deal, especially considering OnePlus previously stated that its older devices, including the 5 and 5T, wouldn't be getting it. If you have signed up for the Open Beta program by installing a beta software on your device, then you should be receiving the latest update via OTA.

Note: as this build supports project treble If you are not running open beta 12 for OnePlus 5 and open beta 10 OnePlus 5T make sure you flash this builds before updating, if not you should clear all data and cache from recovery before flashing the latest build. The saga of whether or not the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T will be upgraded to support Project Treble has had its twists and turns, but everything turned out alright in the end - OnePlus has confirmed that these 2017 handsets will indeed get Treble support very soon. The key point of the last update concerns the support for Project Treble, which was not at all obvious.
