Newbie here: Can you swtich from UT to the original OS? Or do you commit your phone forever by choosing UT?



  • I bought a OnePlus One, but realize now that the camera isn't working. Can I make it work so that I run how it's supposed to run originally so I have access to the camera and then switch over when I want to?

    Short answer: Yes, should be possible to switch back and forth.

    Longer answer: Yes, it should be possible. The exact steps can differ from device to device and depend on which exact version of android you want. And there's usually more than one way to achieved this. You might want to do a bit of research yourself before you start. Check out magic device tool https://github.com/MariusQuabeck/magic-device-tool As far as I can tell, for oneplusone it supports installing LineageOS, so, that's a kind of Android but not exactly "how it's supposed to run originally". Up to you whether that's what you need. Otherwise look for instructions to return one plus one to "stock". "Stock" is often used to refer to the original state / operating system. Generally, I'd say, you will have a learning curve for flashing different operating systems on your mobile phone, but if you're curious enough you'll manage and it can be a lot of fun!
