How to Install Samsung One UI Port on OnePlus 6T
Are you ready to install Samsung’s One UI Port on your OnePlus 6T? While most Samsung users still wait to get their hands on One UI, ProtoDeVNan0 managed to bring a Samsung One UI port to the OnePlus 6T. Therefore, that’s your chance! What works? Well, the list is pretty long and it includes GPS, Sound, WiFi, Bluetooth, DRM, Camera or Flashlight (tested with Flashlight toggle).
However, there’s quite a generous list of bugs too. I am talking about FP Scanner, NFC, Alert Slider, AOD brightness is always 100% and Samsung Cloud has problems with logging in. besides that, the Auto Rotation toggle doesn’t do anything so keep it disabled.
And brightness goes from 50% at the minimum to 100% in no time so you can only use 50,75,100% within 1mm of slider length. That’s only what we know so far, so maybe more stuff could be discovered. I know that it doesn’t sound great, but the developer is working hard at fixing these bugs and claims this port to be his priority.
If you are curious too, then here’s the way to get ready:
- Your OnePlus 6T device must be on the stable Oxygen OS 9.0.7 firmware and a custom kernel;
- An unlocked bootloader and TWRP recovery are both a must;
- You’ll need a Windows PC to run the flasher script and the original USB cord;
- Take a backup of your important data;
- The device should be charged up to at least 50%.
How to Install Samsung One UI Port on OnePlus 6T:
- First of all, download the Samsung One UI Port for your OnePlus 6T;
- Extract the zip file somewhere on your desktop;
- Turn off your smartphone;
- Then, start pressing and holding the Power and Volume Down button together. This leads to rebooting your OnePlus handset to fastboot mode;
- You can now connect it to the computer;
- Then, just double-click on flasher_windows.bat to run the script;
- Reboot the device to TWRP recovery by pressing and holding the Power and Volume Up button at the same time;
- Now, you may copy the One UI backup folder from the extracted zip file on your computer to the TWRP/backups/ directory;
- Choose the Restore option in the TWRP menu;
- After that, select the backup that you just copied to your device;
- You can now swipe at the bottom to restore from the backup;
- Finally, reboot to system when the restore is complete;
- During the setup wizard, do not connect to a Wi-Fi network. Instead, once you get to the home screen, install the Chrome.APK file included in the extracted zip file. You want to get Google Play Store working, don’t you?
That was all! Once again, I need to say that all credits go to ProtoDeVNan0 @Xda!
