OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 7 users can now install the Android Q Developer Preview 2 update

Do you use a OnePlus 7 Pro or OnePlus 7? Here's something for you.

If you own a OnePlus 7 or a OnePlus 7 Pro, we have some good news for you. The Android Q Developer Preview 2 is now available for the two smartphones. The Chinese smartphone brand has shared the download links for both the devices and it is worth noticing that this is the first time that users will be able to flash the update to their handsets. However, if you have the Developer Preview 1, you would not need to wipe any data from your smartphone to install the update.

We should mention that the update is primarily meant for developers as well as early adopters and may have some bugs. Some of the known issues of the update include problems in the reading mode and the display mode. If you are a OnePlus 7 or OnePlus 7 Pro user, make sure that you do not confuse Android Q Developer Preview 2 with Android Q Beta 2 update.

It is also worth adding that all the Pixel smartphones recently received their Android Q Beta 4 update and with that, they got their final APIs. As of now, there is no changelog available for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro, so we cannot really say if Android Q Developer Preview 2 update includes the APIs or not. However, one thing that OnePlus has published is a guide on how to install the update and how to go back to the stable release in case you are unhappy with it.

But then, users would have to flash the smartphone in both the cases, so that their data remains secure.

Here’s what you need to do to install the update (as mentioned on OnePlus’ forum):

  1. Download the latest ROM upgrade zip package from the specified server.
  2. Copy the ROM upgrade package to the phone storage.
  3. Go to Settings -> System -> System Updates -> Click top right icon -> Local upgrade -> Click on the corresponding installation package -> upgrade -> System upgrade completed to 100%.
  4. After the upgrade is complete, click Restart.
  5. The phone will boot into recovery mode to format user data; it will reboot again after formatting.
  6. Update successful.

Steps to uninstall it (according to OnePlus):

  1. Download the latest ROM upgrade zip package from the specified server.
  2. Copy the Rollback package to the phone storage.
  3. Go to Settings -> System -> System Updates -> Click top right icon -> Local upgrade -> Click on the corresponding installation package -> upgrade -> System upgrade completed to 100%.
  4. After the upgrade is complete, click Restart.
  5. The phone will boot into recovery mode to format user data; it will reboot again after formatting.
  6. Update successful.

You will be able to find the links to install as well as uninstall the update on OnePlus forum itself. If you are too dependent on your smartphone, it is not advisable to download the update as it is too full of bugs.
