How to View Firmware Version and Software Details on your OnePlus Phone
When planning to get root access to your OnePlus device or intending to install the latest custom ROM, you need to know the number of your device’s firmware. This number isn’t always the same for the same model of phone, so it isn’t a matter of guessing, but you have to find out such details.
At the same time, knowing the Android version of your device is important for several reasons, such as when you want to see if there’s an updated version of the software available or when it comes to using hidden menu codes, like codes for prompting the unlock message or for access into the debugging screen.
Are you aware of the fact that OnePlus has coded in various secret diagnostic modes that can be accessed from the Phone app’s dial pad to aid in production line quality control and after-sales troubleshooting?
Up to this point, users all over the world have posted various dialer codes specific to OnePlus devices on forums and blogs. Some of them are general, while others are specific to certain carriers. This time I am sharing a basic tip for all OnePlus users out there: how to view Firmware Version and Software Details, no matter what carrier model you might have.
Of course, you can the very same details by heading to the “About Phone” page inside Settings too, but inputting the below code means saves you all those extra steps of navigating through menus. And it is easier to do things this way, don’t you think?
