Oneplus in past started Close beta testing for the Oneplus 7 Series for both OxygenOS 12 & ColorOS 12. ColorOS 12 files of Close beta were leaked and users flashed ColorOS 12 on global units with that there was no problem but the major problem occurred when users started to downgrade back to OxygenOS 11.

  • Copy edited persist to Adb folder or Platform-tools folder
  • Open command prompt in adb folder or platform-tools folder
  • If you have Oneplus 7 & 7pro (Enable USB Debugging on your Smartphone Note: Bootloader should be Unlocked) we need to use a custom recovery to boot into fastbootd mode (Use lineage recovery links given above)
  • If you have Oneplus 7T & 7T pro (Enable USB Debugging on your Smartphone Note: Bootloader should be Unlocked) you can directly boot into fastbootd by giving the command (Adb reboot bootloader), Once device boots into fastboot mode give command (fastboot reboot fastboot) now device should boot into fastbootd.
  • Finally, flash edited persist by giving the command (fasboot flash persist (edited persist name).img
  • Reboot & Enjoy
