OnePlus halts OxygenOS Launch for OnePlus 8, 8 Pro Due to data wipe and other problems.

The rollout of OxygenOS was halted by OnePlus as some significant problems occurred after its release on Saturday.

The update to OxygenOS was planned for OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro and was expected to add the Android protection patch along with other new functionality to the phones in October 2020.

This was unlike other Samsung phones that have the November protection fix already. OnePlus, however, has now completely halted the OxygenOS upgrade, without giving any clear information about its resumption, after users protested, among other problems, about the wiping of their phone records. A month after OnePlus unveiled Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 for OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, OxygenOS debuted.

OnePlus community consultant told users about the halt of the OxygenOS rollout. “The rollout of this upgrade is currently paused as certain customer complaints are being reviewed by the software team. Thank you for your comprehension,’ said the consultant.

However, recognised the data wipe problem in a forum post and advised users, whether they are on an open beta, not to instal the OxygenOS upgrade. Before starting the upgrade process , the company also advises that users backup their files. However, for the impacted users who lose their data due to the issue caused by the new update, OnePlus has not offered any workaround.

Few customer reports on the company’s community forums also show that on OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, the OxygenOS upgrade deactivated VoLTE and VoWi-Fi and affected Web streaming experiences.

Additionally, some users who were still running an open beta of OxygenOS complained that they mistakenly downloaded the OxygenOS as a secure upgrade that resulted in a complete data wipe on their tablets.

The OxygenOS was meant to offer a better experience with improved frame consistency and adaptive brightness algorithms, as per the official update log. With an optimised context process management mechanism, the upgrade also aimed to improve standby efficiency.

In addition, it provided a Canvas function to draw a wireframe image on your phone based on the lock screen picture.
