Oneplus 3 and 3T get hydrogenOS 3.0 Nougat based update 

Oneplus 3 and 3T are two devices of same Variant but differ in storage . Both smartphones arrived recently in the market and creating a buzz over features.

You may know that new smartphones that are arriving are pre-installed with new Android Nougat 7.0 but , interesting thing is oneplus 3 and 3T have Nougat but it’s not oxygen OS . Yes , you heard me it’s not oxygen instead their is a special version launched for only these two variants that is hydrogen OS.

So , if you like things with special scenerio to change things especially on smartphones like me then you can switch to oneplus 3 and 3T versions and experience what things look like from other side.

The ROM is created for Chinese based versions language on both the devices but you can get universal language (English) custom ROM easily and can use it from  any recovery app like twrp recovery or CWM recovery etc. Apparently you have to download file of Google apps ( Gapps) and flash them firmware like you flash custom ROM file of hydrogen OS .

Note – procedure of installing this custom ROM needs an professional advise so if you are a beginner that please do not try it as it may brick your device and can also void your warranty.

HydrogenOS ROM is only available in Chinese and English language and when you succeed in installation of this file then you have to download unwanted Chinese based apps.


  • Most of people that switched their oxygenOS ROM to hydrogenOS posted that they are reporting better battery life than previous ROM.

Custom ROM file is of 1.2 GB and you can download this file from the link mentioned below-
