If you haven’t upgraded your smartphone before making a return to college, OnePlus is now willing to shave 10 percent off the price of its latest flagship, the OnePlus 5. You’ll have to verify that you’re actually a student to receive the coupon code, but it seems like that’s really all there is to it. Once that step’s done, you can save a bit of money and get yourself a device that very few people on campus will have.
The offer is open in the United States, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Austria, Belgium, Portugal, Poland, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Croatia, and Hungary. You’ll have a month to use your discount code, but students will be able toredeem the deal once each year while enrolled.
You’ll have to verify that you’re a student by logging in to a Student Beans account (or create a new one if needed). More information is available at OnePlus via the two source links below.
IMPORTANT: It is important to obtain the correct upgrade file/firmware for your particular model of phone.
You can also reset the phone using the apply update menu option in the recovery menu. Note: This will completely reflash the phone’s software and all your data will be deleted!
Before you do anything you have to download the correct firmware and put it on your phone’s internal storage. Oneplus 5 has no external SD card slot.
You can copy the firmware via SD cable when the phone is in MTP mode, or you can use the ADB shell to “push” the firmware to the phone’s internal virtual sdcard storage.
Name or rename the file as update.zip
Power off your device Press and hold volume down + Power button. When the phone is vibrate let go the power button and keep press the Volume DOWN button until the recovery menu shows up.( device will boot into recovery mode )
Select apply update This operation will take a while so be patient.
When the flashing procedure finished the phone will reboot itself OR if not from the recovery main menu select
Reboot system now from ” Reboot” option.
If you haven’t seen the update on your own device it’s possible to grab the necessary file from the buttons below both in a Full ROM version and just as a link to the OTA file that will update you from v4.5.4 to v4.5.5. In addition to the improvements made to the Wi-Fi connectivity the update also brings along some fixes for things like the Wi-Fi signal displaying as being weak on a consistent basis. Users currently experiencing this particular problem should see it disappear after installing this latest update to OxygenOS, though it should be kept in mind that this is OxygenOS meant for the OnePlus 5 and not for past OnePlus devices. This update also quickly follows the one that was sent out back on June 28th that bumped users up to OxygenOS v4.5.3.
