  1. Hello,

    Yesterday evening I’ve installed Oxygen OS 3.0 on my OP2 device. After installing OS 3.0 phone wouldn’t start up and hang in a boot loop. Repaiting “starting apps” followed by android logo. (A well know issue according the 1+ forums.)
    I have to go back to Oxygen OS 2.2.1. but do not know how to do.
    Could you make a step by step list how I can go back to previsious OS?
    Many thanks!
