Unfortunately I didn't do a backup of my phone to a computer before I installed the one ui beta. How difficult is it to rollback and what data/apps will I lose? Thanks

Gotcha - thanks.

I can't speak from experience, as I've never done a Withdraw.

However, if it were me in the situation, I'd backup to SmartSwitch anyway, and on top of that, backup to OneDrive and Google Drive. Then create an inventory of installed apps.

Execute the Withdraw in Members.
Factory Reset
Fire up SmartSwitch, plug in phone, select Downgrade.

Then, cross fingers and attempt to Restore any of the Backups.

There are more detailed / official "how to rollback" docs.

Hello @Noodles ,

Rolling back to Android 11 is fairly Simple. You back up your data and Connect device to a PC with smart switch installed. You will be shown a down grade button and you should be able to go back to Android 11.  Rolling back has the same affect as a master reset of the device as device is flashed with Android 11 binary and all data on the device is lost. 

If certain apps are not working, it may be a good idea to reach out to the app developer and let them know of the issue as eventually your device will be upgraded to Android 12 official binary.

Regards
One UI Beta Team

No PC?

Ask a friend, neighbor, family member, maybe check with the local library, bound to be someone out there with a machine 🙂
