[Android Auto fixed] OPPO Find X2 & X2 Pro Android 11 beta update released with ColorOS 7.2 (Download link inside)
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on June 22, 2020) follows:
Google surprised many when it announced a total of 23 smartphones to participate in the Android Q beta testing exercise back in 2019. Among these phones was the OPPO Reno, the only one from the Chinese company that took part in the program.
Other Chinese vendors like Vivo and Xiaomi had multiple devices in the program, a book the BBK Electronics company seems to have borrowed a page from with respect to the latest Android R beta testing program.
Just so you know, Android R is the internal codename for the upcoming Android 11 OS. Google released the first public beta this month and so far, several vendors have already announced devices that will be participating in the beta testing exercise.
The likes of Xiaomi Mi 10/Mi 10 Pro, Vivo NEX 3S, Vivo iQOO 3 (4G/5G), and OnePlus 8/Pro already received their Android 11 beta treats while the Realme X50 Pro gets it next month.
OPPO, on the other hand, had promised to push the update to Android 11 beta to owners of the Find X2 and Find X2 Pro soon. At the time, there was no date, but now we have one. And it’s today.
The OPPO Find X2 and Find X2 Pro Android 11 beta update is up for grabs as I write this. The software, as expected, is available in a limited capacity for models CPH2023 and CPH2025 of the duo, respectively.
This version, which has ColorOS 7.2 on top, is meant for app developers and not for daily use, so keep that in mind before attempting to install the firmware below on your phone.
- Device: OPPO Find X2/Find X2 Pro
- Channel: China Beta
- Version: Beta 1
- Android: 11
- Type: Recovery
- Download: Find X2 ROM
- Download: Find X2 Pro ROM
- Type: Recovery
Below is a quick guide of how to install Android 11 beta update on the OPPO Find X2 or Find X2 Pro handset.
1). Download the upgrade firmware package of OPPO Android 11 preview version for developers, and copy the package to the root directory of your phone storage.
2). Power off your phone. Then press and hold the Power button and the Volume Down button to enter Recovery mode. In Recovery mode, perform the operations according to on-screen prompts, select Install from storage, find the upgrade firmware package, and tap Install.
3). During the upgrade, DO NOT perform any operation on your phone. After the upgrade completes, a message will be displayed, indicating that the installation is successful. Then restart your phone. After the restart, your phone will run based on OPPO Android 11 preview version for developers.
Since this is unfinished software, beware of the following bugs as identified by OPPO:
1). Making a video call using a test machine would fail and the other party’s image could not be displayed after you answer a video call. This can be addressed by restarting your phone.
2). Your phone would not detect a simulated 4-pole earphone jack and audio would play through the speaker.
3). Charging using the CDP charger would fail.
In the event that you feel the new Android 11 experience isn’t what you expected, there is room to roll back to the previous Android 10 ROM that worked fine. The rollback ROM link for the Find X2 is here while the Find X2 Pro is here.
Once you have the right download file with you, follow the steps below to roll back to ColorOS 7 based on Android 10.
1). Download the Android Q firmware package and copy it to your phone storage. The package varies depending on different phone models. Find the corresponding packages for different models as follows:
– CPH2023: CPH2023PU_11_OTA_0730_all_4b9m0wV9ioC8_roll-back-pu-findx2.ozip
– CPH2025: CPH2023PU_11_OTA_0730_all_4b9m0wV9ioC8_roll-back-pu-findx2pro.ozip
2). Find the firm package in File Manager and tap it. You will be alerted of data erasion. Tap Next. You will then be prompted to back up data. Tap Next. Finally, confirm the rollback. You need to restart your phone after the rollback.
It remains to be seen whether the stable update will arrive with ColorOS 7.2 or ColorOS 8. Meanwhile, check out if your OPPO device stands a chance of getting an official Android 11 update.
