    Hi, I am an ex OP3 user who switched to a OP8P recently and I was going through all the forums related to OP 8 Series to find out if rooting this device will void my warranty or not (It didn't void the warranty of OP3 back in 2016 and I was curious if OP has changed their stance related to rooting).But there was no official or forum answer available for this query so I did the next best thing and I asked the official oneplus chat support.The answer was UNLOCKING YOUR BOOTLOADER or ROOTING YOUR ONEPLUS 8 SERIES DOES NOT VOID IT'S WARRANTY.

    PS: Of course, if something happens to the phone hardware it will not be covered under warranty though.
    PPS: I am from India, It may be different for your country.

    Here is a screenshot of the conversation.

    It has always been same with OnePlus. Since OnePlus One. Hence people love them. These guys are as techy as us. Never disappointing when it comes to software ❤️

    Truth be told, what's stopping me is not this.
    Rather, I don't want to end up if widevine L3 (Though it can happen just by updating your OP8pro...o_O) and mess up with some things (you can hide root with magisk etc, but sometimes it just won't do)

    Back then, I thought it was mandatory to root your phone: to block the ads and add some functions that I found important.
    But nowadays you can accomplish a lot without even rooting your phone, just using adb of finding the right app.
