OnePlus releases community build of OxygenOS 3.5 for OnePlus 3


OnePlus wants to let its users test software builds before release, so the company released a community build of OxygenOS 3.5 for the OnePlus 3. It seems to be a trend for companies to release test builds or beta builds for devices, as LG recently did the same for Android 7.0 Nougat.

The build contains a lot of changes, including:

  • Several UI improvements
  • New and improved OnePlus apps, including clock, weather and file manager
  • Improved camera software
  • More robust settings and and customization features

There are also back-end changes that won’t really be noticeable. Unfortunately, it is a beta build, so there will be some serious bugs:

  • Android Pay is not currently supported
  • Only English is currently supported in several OnePlus apps
  • Some performance issues
  • Some UI issues when using custom themes
  • System UI tuner is unstable (do not use); using the system UI tuner could cause serious issues that can only be resolved via factory reset
  • You will need to re-register your fingerprints if you have fingerprint authentication enabled

This isn’t meant to be everyone’s daily driver, but only those who want to test it on a spare OnePlus 3 or are daring enough to deal with bugs on their daily. Hit the source link to find instructions on how to flash it. Rolling back to official builds will require a clean flash, so be sure you want to stick around on community builds before flashing!
