First Step: You’ll need to enable installations from unknown sources (settings > security) in order to install the feedback app on OxygenOS. Also you need to backup your whole data first. If something goes wrong you can revert back without loss of data.

Please proceed only if you are confident in your abilities to flash a custom ROM. This guide exists to help you flash OxygenOS, but things can still go wrong if not followed correctly. While rooting and flashing will not void your OnePlus warranty, any damage caused by improper flashing is not covered under warranty.

If you are looking forward to install this OS on Windows or MAC then you need FastBoot and ABD Installed.

Second Step: You first need to flash a recovery onto your device. We recommend using TWRP. Please download the recovery image to your computer. You can follow their instructions to flash recovery, or you can reference these steps:
Boot into fastboot mode. You can do this on your OnePlus One by holding down the power button and the volume up button. When you see the fastboot logo, connect your device to your computer.

Now from here its a little different for different versions of your SmartPhone OS. Android users can skip both these and proceed with the next step.

For Windows Users:

  • In your terminal window, find the folder where you put the recovery image and run the following commands:
    fastboot oem unlock (You can skip this step if your phone’s bootloader is already unlocked).
    fastboot flash recovery <recovery.img>. Image file should be the TWRP recovery image.
    fastboot reboot.

For MAC Users:

  • In your terminal window, find the folder where you put the recovery image and run the following commands:
    ./fastboot oem unlock (You can skip this step if your phone’s bootloader is already unlocked).
    ./fastboot flash recovery <recovery.img>. Image file should be the TWRP recovery image.
    ./fastboot reboot

You should now have the recovery installed.

From here on the steps are common for all Users:

Step 3 : Unzip oxygenos_1.0.0.zip. In there, you will see a oxygenos_1.0.0.flashable.zip file. Copy oxygenos_1.0.0.flashable.zip to your phone. On a Mac, you can use Android File Transfer.

Step 4: Boot into recovery. You can do this on your OnePlus One by holding down both the volume down key and the power button.

Step 5: Once you are in the recovery interface, the first thing you want to do is a factory reset. Again, you will lose all your data so please make sure you have backed up everything before doing this.

Step 6: After the wipe, go to install and find oxygenos_1.0.0.flashable.zip. Confirm flash. This will flash OxygenOS onto your device.

Step 7: After the flash succeeds, you can reboot the device, which will take you to the new OxygenOS. Enjoy!

If you find yourself wanting to rollback to CM, Make sure you have TWRP or CM recovery on the device. Another factory reset will be needed before flashing unfortunately so make sure you backup all of you data.
