  1. You should change the download nameto this article, because this particular line does not give the OxygenOS 4.0, rather the open beta version. “OxygenOS 3.5.4 to OxygenOS 4.0”

  2. Thank you for the guide! I appreciate that! But it would be great if possible to include a note for stock hydrogen OS users that wish to switch to OOS 4.0. I ordered my device from China and it comes with H2OS. I would go straight to flashing OOS4.0 if these steps apply for this device too. I just wanted to make sure I’m not going to brick my device and that there are no traces of H2OS left after the flashing is finished. Thank you in advance and have a happy new year!
