OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T firmware download: Android 9 Pie update now available as OxygenOS 9.0.0

OnePlus 5T Android 9 Pie

The OnePlus 5 and 5T are the 2017 flagship devices from OnePlus. The devices run pretty well and don’t generally lag or give system errors. However, if you have recently updated your device or rooted/installed a custom ROM on it, you may experience instability issues. In that case, installing a stock firmware is the best way to fix your device.

Stock firmware for your OnePlus 5 and 5T will give your device a fresh start with the software and settings as OnePlus provides out-of-the-box. Installing stock firmware manually requires a knowledgeable hand though, as it involves booting into recovery mode and flashing the firmware zip file. If you’re a tech enthusiast, you’d probably go through the installation process pretty fine, if not, we suggest you take help from a friend who knows this kind of stuff.

That said, installing stock firmware on OnePlus devices is easier than most other OEMs. Samsung, LG, Google and a few others require a PC to install/flash firmware on their Android devices. OnePlus, however, just gives you a full firmware zip file that can be flashed via the stock recovery on your OnePlus phone.

You can find the stock firmware for all updates OnePlus pushed to OnePlus 5 and 5T till date in the table below. You can use these firmware files to also rollback to a previous version of Android. For example, if you’re facing problems with OnePlus 5 Oreo update, you can use the stock firmware for Android 7.0 Nougat to revert back to Nougat from Oreo.

How to install stock firmware on OnePlus 5 and 5T

There are two ways to install stock firmware on your OnePlus 5 and 5T. Both methods involve the use of stock recovery, but the former is much convenient if you’re on mobile and don’t have access to a PC.

Method 1: Install directly from the phone’s internal storage

Step 1. Download the update file (either OTA or Full) from above.

Step 2. Transfer the downloaded update file to your OnePlus 5. Remember its location. (You can also download the update directly on phone, in which case, it should be in the download folder.)

Step 3. Boot your OnePlus One into recovery mode:

  • Power off your OnePlus 5. Wait for 6-7 seconds after screen goes off.
  • Press and hold Power + Volume up together until you see anything on the screen.
  • Use volume buttons to bring up Recovery mode option at the top of the screen.
  • And then press the Power button to select recovery mode option. That’s it you’ll boot into recovery mode.

Step 4. Install the update. Use the instruction for your recovery.

  • In 3e recovery, use volume buttons to navigate to ‘install update ..’ option and then press the power button to select it.
  • Now, select the update file that you transferred to OnePlus 5 in step 2 above. Confirm this and Oxygen OS 2.0.1 update will be installed on your device.

→ If OTA update doesn’t install using the above method, just use the full ROM file, it should install without problem.

Step 5. The update will start installing, so just wait until that is finished. When it’s done, you will be back in recovery’s home screen.

Step 6. Select ‘Reboot system now’ to restart your OnePlus 5.

That’s it.

Method 2: Install from PC via ADB Sideload

Step 1. Setup ADB and Fastboot on your PC.

Step 2.  Download the update .zip file on your PC and rename it to op5-update.zip.

Step 3. Enable USB debugging:

  • Go to your phone’s settings » About phone » and tap “Build number” Seven times. This will enable Developer options on your phone.
  • Now go to Settings » Developer options » and tick the USB debugging checkbox.

Step 4. Connect your OnePlus 5 to PC.

Step 5. Now open the folder on PC where you downloaded the update’s .zip file and then open a command window inside the folder. To do that, do a “Shift + Right click” on any empty white space inside the folder and select “Open command window here” from the context menu.

Step 6. Now issue the following window to command window to reboot your device into recovery mode:

 adb reboot recovery

└ Check your phone’s screen, if it’s asking for “Allow USB debugging”, accept it by selecting OK/Yes.

Step 7. Once in recovery mode, use Volume buttons to navigate up and down between options and Power button to select an option.

Step 8. Select the “Install from USB” option on the device.

Step 9. Now issue the following command to finally begin installing the update:

adb sideload op5-update.zip

└ This will begin the installation of the firmware/update.

Step 10. Once the update is installed, select reboot from the main menu of recovery to restart the device.

That’s it. You successfully installed the update.
