OnePlus notes that users with the latest stable update will need to have their BootLoaders locked. This means that everyone that has rooted their OnePlus 3 and 3T devices will have to unroot and relock the bootloader. This also means that all the data saved on their device will be removed so it is better to take a backup of all the important data that you don t want to lose. After the backup, users need to download the corresponding Android 9 Community Beta build for their OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T and then move it to the root folder on the internal storage of their device. Now that the preparation is done, users need to note that there are two different ways to go about the update. Let s take a look.

Local Update

The first way is to use the local update option that is present inside the system. As part of this, users need to open the Settings app and then head to System Update section. Once inside, users need to tap on the setting icon present on the top left corner. After that, they need to tap on the Local update option and then select the downloaded file to start the installation until it reboots.

Recovery Update

As part of this method, the user needs to turn off their device and then open it in the Fastboot mode by pressing and holding on the power button and volume up key at the same time. Once here, users need to open the Recovery with the help of the volume rocker. Once you enter the Recovery, select English , select Install from internal storage and then select the Community Beta build and then tap Yes . Users need to wait for the reboot.

Another thing to note here is that the backup should be taken on a storage location that is outside the device for obvious reasons.
