OnePlus distributes updates to older phones and the latest to get new updates are the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. However, the company advised users not to download this latest update.His Winkey W of his team at OnePlus Software instructed OnePlus 9 users not to download his OxygenOS 13 F.19.
Many OnePlus 9 users received the news quite late, as OnePlus staff were on vacation during Chinese New Year. Unfortunately, this meant that multiple users were able to download the update. The company responded immediately to the community through a forum post. This post has now been viewed 5.6k times, so I hope more people see this message.
So what’s wrong with OxygenOS 13 F.19?
There is no point in coating it with sugar. This situation is pretty bad. Those who have had the misfortune to install the update will find their device barely functioning. After installing the update, some users have noticed that their device won’t boot at all. It was so bad that the company quickly pulled the update and started working on fixing the issue.
In the meantime, if you installed the update just to softbrick your device, we recommend bringing your phone to the OnePlus Care Center. The company can recover devices without data loss. If you can’t access the care center, I’m not sure if the company can dispatch you.
