Beta Release Highlights
OnePlus enthusiasts and early adopters can now explore the cutting-edge features and improvements of Android 14 on their OnePlus 11 devices.

It’s important to note that the beta build is not recommended for inexperienced users or those unfamiliar with flashing custom ROMs.
Android 14 Beta Program Known Issues
The Android 14 Beta for OnePlus 11 has a few known issues that users should know. These include WLAN malfunctions in specific scenarios, connection failures when casting to a TV display, a red screen appearing when switching from Guest mode to Owner mode, and other minor glitches such as WeChat call ringtone inconsistencies and screen freezes when using the front camera in WhatsApp. OnePlus is actively addressing these issues and improving the overall user experience.
Flashing custom ROMs always carries some risks, including the possibility of bricking your phone. Users must carefully read and follow the instructions provided by OnePlus to minimize these risks. Additionally, backing up all important data before proceeding with the installation process is crucial.
Upgrade Instructions (EU&IN Versions)
For OnePlus 11 users in the EU and IN regions, Android 14 Beta can be upgraded via Local Install. The process involves downloading the latest ROM upgrade zip package from the specified server, copying it to the phone storage, enabling developer mode, and initiating the upgrade through the system settings. Detailed step-by-step instructions can be found on the OnePlus forum.
Upgrade Instructions (NA Version)
OnePlus 11 users in the NA region should follow a slightly different upgrade process. They must download the ROM upgrade zip package, copy it to the phone storage, install a specific APK, and initiate the upgrade through a dedicated app. This process is also outlined in detail on the OnePlus forum.
If users encounter difficulties or wish to revert to a previous version, OnePlus provides rollback instructions. The rollback process requires downloading the appropriate ROM rollback zip package, copying it to the phone storage, and following similar steps as the upgrade process. Separate instructions are available for EU&IN versions and NA versions.
