Here are the download links: OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T. Once you have the Android 10 Open Beta 1 package downloaded, move it to the root directory of your internal storage using a file manager application. Then, go to Settings > System > System updates, press the menu button in the top right-hand corner, choose Local Upgrade, and then select the file you downloaded.

If you would rather wait for OnePlus to roll out the stable Android 10 update for the OnePlus 5 and 5T, then you don’t have to do anything today. The last stable OxygenOS update for both devices was released back in March of 2020, so unless there are some glaring bugs with this Android 10 beta build, we can expect it to go stable sometime next month.

he changelog states that the update brings the new Android 10-based user interface and design, along with full-screen gestures for the OnePlus 5T (Review). The Android security patch with the update is the February 2020 one, and the core features of Android 10, including systemwide dark mode, are available with the update.

If you’re on the stable software update path, installing the Android 10 Open Beta 1 through the local update option is possible and will preserve data on the smartphone. If you’re already on the OnePlus Open Beta programme for an earlier version of Android on your device, you’ll have to install the new software through Recovery mode.

This will erase all data on the device, so make sure you have all of your important data backed up before going ahead with this.As mentioned above, the Open Beta 1 for the OnePlus 5 or OnePlus 5T is not available via OTA. Interested users will have to install Open Beta 1 manually. First of all, download the appropriate package for the OnePlus 5 or OnePlus 5T (Links can be found at the bottom of the article). After downloading the file, move it from the ‘Downloads’ folder to the root directory.

After moving the file to the root directory, Open Settings – System – System updates, press the cogwheel on the top right corner, choose the Local upgrade option, and select the file.

For the OnePlus 5 or 5T users who are already on an Open Beta build, they can also upgrade to the new OxygenOS 10.0 Open Beta 1. However, they can only do it via ‘Recovery,’ which will also wipe the entire data on your smartphone. To install the Android 10 Open Beta 1, turn off the device and boot into recovery by pressing the power button and volume up key simultaneously to boot into fastboot mode. Now, navigate to Recovery option using volume and power button -> Choose English -> Install from Internal storage -> Select the downloaded zip file -> Select ‘Yes.’ Wait until the installation is complete, then press the Reboot button.
