OnePlus have published the first factory images for their late 2017 flagship killer, the OnePlus 5T. The factory images are for OxygenOS version 4.7.4, which was recently pushed out to users via an OTA update to users of the device. The system image should allow for users running a custom ROM or modified ROM to restore back to this latest version of OxygenOS for the OnePlus 5T with ease.
OnePlus says you need an unlocked bootloader to install the system image, but Android Police have confirmed that the stock OnePlus 5T recovery can install the image on a locked device as well. Interestingly, OnePlus also provides instructions for flashing with TWRP, building upon their existing reputation as an enthusiast-embracing brand.
