OnePlus users in India have reported bricking their phones after updating them. To encounter and resolve this issue, it was advised not to update or roll back, but OnePlus acknowledged this issue and released a new update to fix it.

It was previously stated that updating the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro bricked them into restart mode. This update comes with the latest security patch (January 1, 2021). Last month, OnePlus rolled out the OxygenOS 13 Incremental Update with Feature F.19 for both the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro. Users have started breaking their devices by updating the device with LE2111_11.F.19 (OnePlus 9) and LE2121_11.F.19 (OnePlus 9 Pro).

According to a report, users who have updated their devices won’t be able to boot after installing the update. Therefore, OnePlus has now rolled out a new update to fix that issue and advised users not to update and to visit a service center if they face any problems. As a result, OnePlus promised that the phone would be reverted to its previous state with no data loss.

The update is for Indian users: LE2111_11.F.20 for the OnePlus 9 and LE2121_11.F.20 for the OnePlus 9 Pro, which they can directly upgrade from F.20 without needing to go through the F.19 update.

There is nothing in the changelog since the update is a fix, but the company has added the January 2023 security patch and improved system stability. Apart from this, there are potential fixes to address some UI elements and improve screen brightness adjustment while auto brightness is turned on. Lastly, there are improvements to mobile network connections in terms of stability.
