The Oxygen OS 3.0 Beta can be downloaded from OnePlus website here, and have to be flashed manually. OnePlus has also given some instruction to the users, to keep in mind before installing the ROM on the OnePlus 2.
  • We only support dirty flashing of this build using Oxygen recovery.
  • Dirty flashing (that means flashing the update without wiping data or factory resetting first) requires OxygenOS 2.2.0 or higher.
  • Factory reset is needed if you are using any other recovery or coming from any other ROM. We do not guarantee these cases to work properly.
  • We ALWAYS recommend backing up all your important personal data before flashing.
