In this guide, we will show you the steps to install OTA updates on your rooted OnePlus 10 Pro. The OEM has been in some turbulence as of late, mostly due to its decision to ditch the ColorOS in favor of its in-house OxygenOS.

So what is the right way out? Well, we will be using your device’s inactive slot to get this job done. So without any further ado, let’s get started with the steps to install OTA updates on your rooted OnePlus 10 Pro.
