    OnePlus have at last issued the Open Beta for Nougat, Android 7.0. This is a beta test version. Beta means that there may be issues with the release. This release is for OnePlus 3, A3000 & A3003, only.

    "Some key updates in this build:
    Upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat
    New Notifications Design
    New Settings Menu Design
    Multi-Window View
    Notification Direct Reply
    Custom DPI Support
    Added Status Bar Icon Options
    Added Quick Launch For 3rd Party Applications
    Improved Shelf Customization
    This build will not OTA to current open beta users. You can download the build here:
    "

    OxygenOS Open Beta 8 See post #4, below.

    "[Known Issues]
    Android Pay may not work correctly
    Some stability/performance issues
    After upgrading to Android N, you will not be able to directly downgrade back to M builds. Our customer service team has a special build of Android M that will allow you to downgrade, but this will format your device. If you'd like to flash back to M, please contact Customer Support.
    Please keep in mind that this is beta software. This build will not be as stable as our official OTA releases. Given that this is a shift to a brand new version of Android, there may be more bugs in this build than previous Open Beta builds. By installing this update, you accept the potential risks.
    "

    For more information, see the thread at...

    OxygenOS Open Beta 8 (Nougat) for OnePlus 3


    Please read, carefully and thoroughly, all installation instructions in the thread. DO NOT attempt to use TWRP custom recovery to flash this firmware.


    N.B. This beta build is for competent and experienced users.

    OnePlus have now closed the download link for Open Beta 8, Nougat, firmware for the OnePlus 3, that is shown in post #1.

    They state...

    "***EDIT: We have disabled the download link as we have gathered enough feedback, thank you for your support.***"


    (You, "may", still be able to download Open Beta 8, Nougat, firmware, using the Oxygen Updater, from the Play Store.)
