OnePlus is a company that does a decent job when it comes to providing major Android updates. They usually update their latest flagships (or the second latest flagships as was the case last time) by the end of December or early in the next year. However, they don’t do as good a job when it comes to providing links to prior software and updates. For instance, the OnePlus 5T which is their latest flagship right now has received a number of OS updates from OxygenOS 4.7.0 to 5.0.4. You can’t find them all on the company’s official Downloads page for the OnePlus 5T. For this reason, XDA member has mirrored all of the official OxygenOS ROMS and OTA updates for the OnePlus 5T. This makes it easier for those who often try custom ROMs or modify their device after rooting it.
The links are provided for not only full official ROMS but also the OnePlus open beta ROMs. There are single flashable zips for both kinds of ROMs which are full ROM files. Links are also provided for OTA update files for both kinds of ROMs which are incremental updates. These are supposed to be flashed only if you have a certain version of the ROM already installed. The ROMs are all in a flashable zip format meant to be flashed via the stock OnePlus recovery. Along with the ROMS Titokhan also provides a link to download the stock recovery image in case you need it. You can download any of the ROMs or OTA files from the download links below.
