Android OEMs normally provide support for 2 major Android versions for most of their devices. But updates for some of these devices are often curbed to only one major release due to factors like hardware limitations.

On the other hand, OnePlus has always strived to provide the best software experience possible to their buyers. The 2017-released OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T are a stellar example of their dedication to the users. The phones received Android 10 officially this year as their third major Android version upgrade. Something that we rarely see happening.

Manually Upgrading OxygenOS on OnePlus 5/5T

Now, like any other Android device, software updates for the OnePlus 5 and 5T are rolled out to the users over-the-air in a stagged manner. This means the OTA is first made available for a small percentage of users, followed by a wider rollout in the following days/weeks. This ensures that no critical bugs are present in the update before it’s available for everyone.

This also means that you’ll often need to wait for the latest OTA update to arrive on your phone. Well, not necessarily. If you wish to upgrade your phone to the latest OxygenOS version right now, then you can simply download the latest OxygenOS OTA package for your OnePlus 5/5T from below and install it manually using the provided instructions.

You could also use the Oxygen Updater app to immediately get the latest updates on your phone.

Before you attempt to manually upgrade your phone, it’s strongly advised to check if the OTA update for automatic installation is available for your device or not. To do this, go to “Settings” → “System” → “System updates” on your phone. Only resort to the manual installation if the automatic OTA isn’t available.

Prerequisites

Before you head to the installation instructions, there a couple of things you should do.

1. Take a Backup

Manually installing updates does not erase any data on your phone. However, to be precautious and for safeguarding, make sure that you take a backup of all your data stored on the device.

You could take a look at our article here on backing up different types of data stored on Android devices.

2. Install OnePlus USB Drivers (if required)

Download the latest OnePlus USB drivers from here and install them on your Windows computer.

These will only be required if you download the ROM package on your PC and need to transfer it to your phone’s storage during the installation instructions.

3. Charge your OnePlus Nord

Charge your phone to a minimum of 40-50% battery level. This will ensure that it doesn’t suddenly power off due to low battery during the software update process.

How to Manually Install OxygenOS Updates on OnePlus 5/5T

Now, there are two different ways/methods to manually install the latest OxygenOS update on your OnePlus 5/5T. These are as follows:

  • The first method is for users who are running the stock OxygenOS software on their phones and are not rooted. This method uses the in-built Local Upgrade option in the phone’s settings menu to install the update. This is the easiest and recommended way.
  • The second method is for users who have TWRP recovery installed on their phones, regardless if it’s running OxygenOS, a custom ROM, or is rooted. This method uses TWRP recovery to flash the full ROM/OTA package of the update. This will also allow you preserve both TWRP and Magisk root after the update is installed.

So, choose the method that best suits your phone’s current state.

Method 1: Using Local Upgrade Option in Settings

First, download the full ROM package of the latest OxygenOS update for your OnePlus 5 or OnePlus 5T. Once downloaded, connect your phone to the PC via the USB cable and enable File Transfer/MTP mode. Copy the downloaded file to the root of your phone’s internal storage (Outside all folders). Once the file has been copied, disconnect the phone from the PC.

Go to 'Settings' > 'System' > 'System update' on OnePlus 5/5T

 

Now, go to ‘Settings’ > ‘System’ > ‘System updates’ on your phone. Then press the cogwheel icon on the top-right of the screen and select ‘Local Upgrade’. The system will automatically detect and fetch the full ROM package.

  1. First of all, download the full ROM package of the latest OxygenOS update for your OnePlus 5/5T.
  2. Next, download the following files as well:
    1. Magisk Installer: Magisk-v20.4.zip

  5. Once the files have been copied, disconnect the phone from the PC and boot it into TWRP recovery mode.

  7. Tap on the ‘Install’ button in TWRP, then navigate to the internal storage of your phone and select the full ROM ZIP file. Then swipe the button on the screen to flash the file and install the OxygenOS update on your OnePlus 5/5T.
