Can you answer my root questions?

    LewisThomas , Mar 21, 2015 :
    So for a while now I've been thinking about rooting my OPO.
    Unfortunately I am anxious to as the Lollipop update should be out in a couple weeks.
    I'm anxious as I think if I root my OPO when the update comes I won't be able to do it as it will get my phone stuck in a bootloop?
    Even if that wasn't to happen how would I go about actually backing up my OPO to root it?
    If that was to be sorted out and easy to do so, how would I actually root my OPO? Would I use of these toolkits like this http://oneplushub.blogspot.be/2015/02/Toolkit-by-manudroid19.html and just click root then that's it done?

    If anyone has any answers to any of my questions please leave it here!

    Thanks in advance!

    -Lewis

    So 100% I won't get stuck in a bootloop when the Lollipop update finally comes? I can just update it as normal as if I wasn't rooted?

    Last time I rooted a phone it was the Moto G I tried to do their official update and after that it got stuck in a bootloop because it was rooted.

    just don't do it if you don't know how to fix possible issues that may arise.

    Don't use toolkits either, learn how to do it properly so that you have the knowledge to solve said issues.

    No, don't get me wrong I don't want to use the toolkit, it seems dodgy but I'm wondering if that's the method that most people use. Also how would you backup your phone appropriately?

    Never EVER re-lock your bootloader. Don't do it.

    I've seen 4 people stuck with a locked bootloader and no TWRP or working ROM in just this month alone.

    (this means your phone is indefinitely bricked and you'll need to pay Oneplus to fix it.)

    You can do it but you have to make sure that you're on completely stock everything first, otherwise it won't unlock. Cyanogens bootloader is a piece of shit..

    In fact, I suggest you ditch it entirely and flash the ColorOS bootloader instead, it's more reliable.

    Yes you can, unlocked bootloader means nothing.

    Oppo (Yes, Oppo, not OPO / Oneplus. Oppo.) ships their devices with an unlocked bootloader by default, they allow and encourage their customers to flash custom roms and experimental versions of ColorOS.

    All an unlocked bootloader does is allow you to flash things via fastboot, other than that it affects nothing.
