OnePlus has been releasing quick and critical bug fix updates for the OnePlus 3’s Android 7.0 Nougat firmware making it more and more stable with each OTA.

Download OnePlus 3 Open Beta 10 OTA and Full ROM zip
The Open Beta 10 is based on the Android v7.0 and not the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat that Google phones have already received. It will take long for OnePlus to release the Android 7.1.1 Nougat or later version.
Nougat Beta 10 may not work with the official TWRP recovery. You will need the modified TWRP listed below in the tutorial section. On the other hand, you can use the OTA update captured by us to update from Open Beta 9 to Open Beta 10 using the signed stock OnePlus recovery.
You may also like the stable firmware for OnePlus 3 like the Oxygen OS 3.2.8 based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow – which is the best option if you want everything stable. However, based on our experience the Open Beta 10 is very stable and has many features. You may also like to see OnePlus 3T Oxygen OS 3.5.4 update.
