How to Install OnePlus 5 OxygenOS 4.5.10 Update
Since the rollout occurs in stages, it may take some time to reach your device. Once it does, you can instantly install the OnePlus 5 OxygenOS 4.5.10 update by navigating to Settings > System updates.
But if you’re not much of a patient man, you can always grab the update zip and sideload/install it through the stock recovery.

So just follow the steps below to easily install OnePlus 5 OxygenOS 4.5.10 update right now.
Important: Flashing the incremental OTA update zip (size <1GB) on a modified device (Root/TWRP) will end up with a brick. So make sure that you only flash the full ROM zip provided in respective section.

Your device must be running on OxygenOS 4.5.8 for this to work. Also, make sure that your device is charged to at least 20% battery level or the update will be denied.
- Download the OnePlus 5 OxygenOS 4.5.10 update zip (4.5.8 > 4.5.10).

» TWRP Recovery – Rooted Users
In case you have TWRP installed instead of the stock recovery, the local upgrade option will not work for you. So you will have to manually flash the update zip through TWRP and then flash the root (Magisk or SuperSU) to maintain root.
- Download the OnePlus 5 OxygenOS 4.5.10 update zip (Full ROM ZIP).
- Download the Magisk or SuperSU root zip (optional).
- Copy the update zip and the root zip (optional) to your device’s internal storage.
- Reboot into TWRP recovery mode.
- When your OP5 enters TWRP, go to the “Install” tab. Browse the storage for the update zip and select it.
- Swipe the button on the bottom of the screen to start the flashing process.
- (Optional Root) If you want to root, you can flash the Magisk or SuperSU root zip following the same method.
- Once the update has been flashed, tap on the “Reboot system” option.
The first boot might take some time, so sit back and let it do its job.
