A PSA warning about how the most recent update for the OnePlus 9 series can break your phone was just published a few days ago.

Well, good news to all of you! The LE2111 11.F.F19 (abbreviated to F.19) update for your OnePlus 9 or OnePlus 9 Pro will shortly become available after OnePlus swiftly responded and paused roll out.

It would seem from what AndroidHeadlines has reported that the problem was exclusive to India, so hopefully there weren't any outliers in other nations. In any case, OnePlus is expecting you to get in touch if you happen to be one of these unfortunate individuals so they can make arrangements for your phone to be taken to a service centre.

Because of this, it's unlikely that you'll be able to handle this one by yourself. Some of you, we assume, may have missed the news item and are morbidly interested in what would occur if the flawed update were to be applied. In essence, after installing it, your phone would get soft-bricked and you would be locked out.

OnePlus should be commended for moving so rapidly and stopping the update's rollout pretty quickly. To allay any concern, the new version that is currently being prepared is designated F.20 rather than F.19. Don't let it concern you: it's part of the process of updating from F.18 to F.20 for anyone who didn't brick their phone.

Though it can take some time before you receive a notification, OnePlus is presently rolling out the update to smaller groups to make sure that everything is operating as intended this time. We can only hope that the phrase "Third time's the charm!" won't be necessary.
