For People with Rooted phones and Custom Recovery

If you’re rooted and need to download the full image, the file is nearly 1.5GB large. OnePlus notes that the OTA will be incremental and that just a small percentage of 3 and 3T owners will get the OxygenOS 5.0 OTA today. A broader rollout will begin in a few days. But if you’re impatient, you can always use a VPN set to Germany to get the OTA right away.

It’s worth noting that flashing the OTA from TWRP turns up “Error: 7,” which indicates a device name mismatch. So if you’re rooted and need to flash the OTA from custom recovery, you’ll have to find a workaround with a build of TWRP that’s not set to verify device names from images, which is risky. Or you’ll have to pull the stock recovery, flash that separately, then flash the OTA.
