Downgrade OnePlus 10T from OxygenOS 14 to OxygenOS 13

Want to downgrade your OnePlus 10T from OxygenOS 14 to OxygenOS 13 (Android 13)? OxygenOS 14 brings several new features like the Trinity Engine, new UI design elements, extra sidebar features, and more. There are also many UI/ UX changes to improve the experience.

However, many people have multiple bugs on OxygenOS 14. If you have app incompatibility, bugs, or battery drain problems with Android 14, you can downgrade to OxygenOS 13 until the latest version is more stable. Many people also dislike the new UI design language of OnePlus. The Gallery app and Settings closely resemble iOS, and the widgets also take heavy inspiration from the iOS UI design. There’s also a Dynamic Island clone called the Fluid Cloud. Downgrading will get rid of these changes.

Note: Downgrading your phone from Android 14 to 13 will erase all the data on your phone, including Photos and Videos, app data, etc. We recommend taking a backup of all essential data before proceeding with the downgrade. Since downgrading is a slightly risky process, sometimes your device might go into a boot loop or get soft-bricked.
