OxygenOS 188.8.131.52 is now rolling out for the entire OnePlus 7 and 7T series with the overdue March 2021 security patch and a substantial number of tweaks in tow.
Most of the tweaks added with OxygenOS 184.108.40.206 provide hotfixes for problems that were present in the stable OxygenOS 11.0 update that began rolling out a few weeks ago. The updates for the OnePlus 7/7 Pro and 7T/7T Pro were announced in a series of official OnePlus Forum posts, but the changelogs are almost identical for each device.
We are starting to push the 220.127.116.11 hotfix build that replaces the previous release. This incremental rollout fixes some unforeseen bugs found in the original Android 11 release and updates the security patch.

Now the fact that the OxygenOS 22.214.171.124 update brings a month-old March 2021 security patch is frustrating, especially as we’re now well on the way toward May. However, given how poor the Android 11 update process has been for OnePlus 7 and 7T series has been, it’s better than it has been for a while.
