Android 10 open beta for OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro: How to download

Notably, as is the case with any beta software, installing this on a primary device must be done with caution. The following method will not erase the data on your phone, but it's a good practice to backup your data before getting started.

Also, as OnePlus notes, make sure that before you start installing the update, you have a minimum of 30 percent battery and 3 GB of internal storage available.

  • Start with downloading the latest ROM upgrade zip package for OnePlus 7 (OTA ZIP) or OnePlus 7 Pro (OTA ZIP).
  • Then, copy the upgrade package to the phone storage.
  • Now, head to Settings > System > System Updates. Here click the top right icon > Local upgrade. Click on the corresponding installation package > Upgrade
  • Once the upgrade is complete, click Restart.
  • The phone will boot into recovery mode to format user data, it will reboot again after formatting.
    And you are done.
