Instructions How to Install Android Oreo on OnePlus 5 

Now, you can install the update and choose the method depending on your device’s current situation. If your OP5 is running OxygenOS 4.5.14, you can simply use method 1. In case your device has TWRP recovery installed, you can use method 2.

Method 1: Using Local Upgrade

  1. Download the full ROM package from the link Download.
  2. Connect your OnePlus 5 to the PC and enable File Transfer mode.
  3. Transfer the full ROM file to the root of the internal storage. By ‘root’, we mean outside all the folders.
  4. Disconnect the device.
  5. Go to ‘Settings’ -> ‘System updates’.
  6. Tap on the cog (gear icon) on the top-right of the screen.
  7. Select ‘Local upgrade’.
  8. The system will automatically detect the ROM file.
  9. So, tap on the file name and press ‘UPGRADE NOW’.

Your device will reboot into the recovery and install the OnePlus 5 Open Beta 1. Once done, your OP5 will boot into the updated ROM.

Method 2: Using TWRP Recovery

  1. Download the full ROM zip from the link Download.
  2. Copy the downloaded ROM file to the internal storage of your OnePlus 5.
  3. Once copied, disconnect the device and power it down.
  4. Boot your OnePlus 5 into TWRP recovery mode.
  5. [Optional] If you’re coming from a ROM other than OxygenOS, then go to ‘Wipe’ -> ‘Advanced Wipe’. Select the options shown in the image below and wipe the device.
  6. Tap on the ‘Install’ button.
  7. Navigate to the internal storage and select the ROM zip file. Swipe the button on the screen to install OnePlus 5 Open Beta 1 update.
  8. Once the file has been selected, tap on ‘Wipe dalvik/cache’.
  9. Finally, hit the ‘Reboot System’ button.


How to roll-back to stable release

Reverting back to the Official OTA path from the Beta path will require a full install and clean flash (FULL WIPE of all data and cache). Please carefully follow the flash instructions below.

  • Please be aware that all data will be wiped during the revert-back process, so do remember to backup your data in advance.
  • Download the roll-back build provided [HERE] to Internal storage.
  • Shut down your device and enter recovery mode by long pressing the Power + Volume Down key simultaneously.
  • Select “Install from Local” and choose the downloaded build to install.
  • Reboot your device after installing the build. You have to re-enter recovery mode to Wipe data cache and Erase everything(Music, pics, etc).
  • Reboot your device again and you’re all good to go.

How to Root BLU R1 HD ?


Senior Member jasonmerc has comeup with the procedure to root BLU R1 HD mobile phone.

Please proceed further with caution…

Download this file, flash the included recovery that Antonio made with the included scatter file Bullet made. Make sure you are using the latest SP Flash Tools V. 1628. Please note this is only for the Prime variant, the vanilla variant recovery will be coming soon. MrMazak will probably post about that.

Also note this was only tested on the 16gb variant of the Prime Phone. We are not sure if this will work on the 8gb variant. Flash at your own risk!

Extract the contents of the zip I posted to the same directory. They must be in the same directory to work. Turn off your R1 and unplug it from your PC.

To flash with SP Flash Tools, simply open the tool, load the scatter file you got from the zip, and a check box should be next to the recovery section of the flashing screen. Make sure flashing is set to Download Only, and click Download. Make sure your R1 is completely off, and plug it in to your computer. After a second or so it will start flashing.

Wanam Xposed Pulled Out of Play Store

Wanam gave an explanation in the forums:

For people who are still asking why I pulled out the App, it’s simply because Google does not allow playing with Samsung security stuff anymore: Knox, secure storage, Device status… my module will become useless if i remove those features, so i decided to unpublish my other modules as well, and will keep updating them on the Xposed repository.

This was one of the reasons I didn’t push my L update of the module to the PlayStore months ago, i need my dev account and i don’t want to put it in any kind of troubles.
