    So I bought a oneplus 3 from here recently and discovered it's got open bootloader and running FreedomOS, possibly done because it's actually Chinese and not a UK version. Who knows. But it's bloody annoying because the Bluetooth has been compromised as a result.

    Anyhoo, does anyone know how to remove this crap ROM and return to stock? I've followed a slightly complicated thread on the OPO forum, but it is for rooted phones. My phone is NOT rooted.

    Really need some easy to understand help here, if anyone says "flash xyz to your twrp" my brain will explode OK [emoji13]

    Have a look at the instructions to flash the latest community build (now based on android 7). You could just jump straight to 7 - it's much better than the standard OP3 android 6. Instructions are here:

    OnePlus 3 OxygenOS Open Beta 9

    And you need to have adb and fastboot command line tools installed, instructions here:
