OnePlus Starts Pushing Nougat Update to OnePlus 3 and 3T


On New Year’s Eve, OnePlus squeezed in a couple of announcement posts to share to the world that Android Nougat is here for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. Well, sort of. They announced that they were starting the incremental rollout of each update, so you may not have seen it yet, as they do so slowly to hopefully not send out an update that could cause problems for everyone. Related, though, they also released a beta of Nougat for the OnePlus 3T, for those who don’t want to wait for the stable build. 

OnePlus told us to expect the Nougat update for the OnePlus 3 before the end of December, so this last minute push technically gave us just that. With that said, we weren’t necessarily sure about the 3T’s Nougat update timeframe, only that once it received Nougat, it and the regular 3 would be on the same schedule moving forward. However, it did see the love. Also, if you just want to manually flash the beta, you can do so this very minute.

The Nougat update for OnePlus’ OxygenOS 4.0 adds the following to each phone:

  • Upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat
    • New Notifications Design
    • New Settings Menu Design
    • Multi-Window View
    • Notification Direct Reply
    • Custom DPI Support
  • Added Status Bar Icon Options
  • Improved Shelf Customization

Again, the update is rolling out to a few today, a few more tomorrow, and then should increase each day until everyone has it. For those with a OnePlus 3T, if you don’t want to wait and instead just want to flash the beta manually, hit up this link.

Anyone see that over-the-air update of the stable build yet? If so, how’s it going?

    I’m patiently waiting for the full zip and TWRP version that will let me install it and keep root.

      It’s not that hard to re root.

      • Bane✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        I have the original OnePlus 3.

      make sure you use the new modified TWRP or you will have many issues

  • ddevito

    For those interested, VPN into Germany or Canada to get it now. Also, avoid rooting as there are way too many workarounds needed for TWRP right now.

      I rooted a 3T just fine after the Nougat update. I just grabbed the Nougat update Zip from Reddit, flashed in TWRP. After the install was complete and everything was working fine, I went back into TWRP and flashed the latest SuperSU Zip.

      A scratch or two never hurt anybody. You should see my OPO.

  • No OTA for me yet on my 3. I’m on the Open Bet 10 so not sure when they will give us an update. On OnePlus Forums it’s widely known to use a VPN and switch to Canada to receive OTA instantly.

    • ddevito

      …or Germany

    • mcdonsco

      That’s what I did, opera free VPN and the moment I set it to Canada BAM! update available.

    • Nick Heintzman

      Thank you for this info. I just downloaded Opera Free VPN and switched to Canada and am downloading the update now. 🙂

      You will not get the update being on beta. If you want 4.0 stable, you need to go back to 3.2.8 stable and then OTA to 4.0.

      • How? When jumping to the open beta it was stated that once on 7.0 you could not downgrade to Marshmallow. Anyone on the open beta should wait for clearer instructions…

        • mark555055d

          That’s a bit of a myth. You have to adb sideload 3.2.8, then factory reset in recovery.

      • Gautam Tiwari

        I have 3.2.8 but still i am not getting any updates ..

        • mark555055d

          Staged rollout. If you want the update immediately, you can install opera vpn from the play store, connect and change region to canada or germany, and then check for system update and it should become available.
