Why you shouldn't upgrade your OnePlus 9 to OxygenOS

Users of the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro were delighted to receive the news about the arrival of OxygenOS 12, an update to the operating system based on Android 12. However, this emotion did not last long.

Within days of its release, a host of issues began to be reported with OxygenOS 12. This led to OnePlus suspending the update of the OnePlus 9 while these errors are resolved. Don’t want to wait for this update to be available again? Well, here we tell you how to install OxygenOS 12.

Taking into account the problems already mentioned with OxygenOS 12 (which belongs to its C.36 version), the Chinese brand has worked on a new version that is beginning to arrive in some regions. The OxygenOS 12 version C.39 update is destined to solve a large part of these errors and you can now download it in this article from the guys at XDA Developers.

Now, remember that you must download the updated ZIP file that fits the model of your mobile (OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro) and your region (Europe, India, or global). Once you have it downloaded in the terminal, you must do the following:

  • Open the settings menu of your OnePlus 9.
  • Now enter the System section.
  • The next thing is to click on System updates.
  • Then hit the gear icon in the upper right corner.
  • Once you enter this section, you have to press Local Update.
  • Finally, the file manager will open and you will have to look for the ZIP that you have downloaded. When you find it, select it and hit Install Now .

The installation will take 10 to 15 minutes and once finished, your OnePlus 9 will restart. With these simple steps, you will be able to enjoy the new functions of Android 12.

Why you shouldn’t upgrade your OnePlus 9 to OxygenOS

If your OnePlus 9 did not receive the first version of OxygenOS 12 (C.36), you should avoid installing this new update. This is because version C.39 is only designed to correct the errors of the first version.

Therefore, if you update to this new version of OxygenOS without having version C.36 installed on your OnePlus, you will have the same problems as the first update. The brand has already revealed that they are working on these errors and that in 2 weeks they will resume the update of the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro. Therefore, we recommend that you do not rush and wait for the update to reach your mobile.
