Oxygen Updater is an open-source app supported by ads & donations. Ads can be removed by purchasing the ad-free unlock in the app’s settings. This is a third-party app, not an official OnePlus application.
OnePlus rolls out OTA updates in a staged manner, meaning you might have to wait a long time before receiving an update. That’s where this app comes in — it downloads only official updates directly from OnePlus/Google servers, and even verifies the integrity of the ZIP before allowing you to install. By doing so, Oxygen Updater lets you skip the rollout queue and install official updates ASAP. It’s faster than OTA 99% of the time.

All OnePlus devices that aren’t carrier-branded (e.g. T-Mobile & Verizon) work perfectly. Carrier-branded devices run a custom, completely locked-down OxygenOS flavour. If you own such a device, be aware that you cannot manually update your firmware, even if you don’t use our app.
Works perfectly without root
If you grant root access to the app, there are some additional features you can take advantage of: auto-install (via OpenRecovery scripts), hiding “incremental” update methods (they’re not compatible with rooted devices, so the app makes it less confusing for you), etc.
Note: auto-install doesn’t work on newer devices/versions. We recommend the following instead:
1. Install via “local upgrade” as you normally would, but *DO NOT* reboot
2. Open Magisk and select the “flash to inactive slot” option
3. Reboot and enjoy
Supports all update tracks & package types
• Stable (default): supposed to be pristine quality, daily-driver material
• Open Beta (opt-in): may contain bugs, but you can experience new features early
• Developer Preview (opt-in, if available for your device): unstable, meant only for developers or hardcore enthusiasts
Switching between different tracks requires enabling “advanced mode” in the app’s settings.
• Incremental (default): much smaller than full, meant for a specific source → target version combo (e.g. 1.2.3 → 1.2.6). Incompatible if rooted, standard Android behaviour. Note: app falls back to full if for whatever reason an incremental isn’t available.
• Full: contain the entire OS, so they’re quite large. Uses: switching between different tracks, or upgrading to a brand new major Android version (e.g. 11 → 12), or if you’re rooted. In all other cases, incremental is recommended.
