At Google IO 2021, the search-engine tech giant took officially introduced Android 12 to the world, albeit one of the very first builds.
This effectively marked the beginning of more active development from all major Android OEMs with the release of the Android 12 Developer Preview 1.
Among the devices listed to take part in this program are two OnePlus devices, the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro, and with the rollout of Android 12 Developer Preview 1, it is a race of finding and fixing bugs that should culminate in the release of stable Android 12-based OxygenOS 12 sometimes in fall (if last year is anything to go by).
As has been customary, we’re going to keep an eye out for these bugs and issues and follow them to their conclusion (read workarounds and bug-fix updates).
Usually, we hold off from pointing out bugs and issues with various builds until the update gets to the public beta phases but OnePlus might have dropped the ball already.
A section of users is noting issues being unable to set up their OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro devices following this update to OxygenOS 12 Developer Preview 1.
According to them, the setup process gets stuck, leaving them with soft-bricked devices. A suggested fix involves reflashing OxygenOS 11, unlocking the bootloader, and toggling OEM unlock. This disables Factory Reset Protection (FRP).
OnePlus has since moved quickly to pull the download links from its community forum and you can read more on this in our coverage of the same here.
We shall continue to keep an eye on these OxygenOS 12 issues and report new ones as and when they become apparent, along with an analysis of their current status.
