OnePlus warns that the build is not as stable as official OTAs. So, bear in mind that installing the update you are putting your device at risk. If you have already flashed an Open Beta, you will receive this new build as an OTA. And if you wish to migrate to the Beta path, you will continue to receive Open Beta OTAs.
