    This is the other statement.. "type fastboot devices to verify that you have a working connection with your phone and then type fastboot oem unlock to unlock your bootloader
    This will delete all the data off your phone and perform a complete factory reset." im scared now... should i do it or not?

    I was running twrp and it flashed everything fine (roms, modems/firmwares). I recently just flashed the ported oxygenos 3.1.1 and for some reason, my old twrp was overwritten by a newer one (not sure why, any ideas?) Anyways, does this newer version 3.0.2 flash modems well and work just as well as the old 2.8.6? Thanks!

    I just tried to restore my darkobas backup coming from ported oxygen 3.1.1, but for some reason it said failed, mounted as read only? Any ideas? Thanks!

    Try going into TWRP and then advanced!
    Uncheck read only option if there is any and check system data storage (whatever there is except usb otg) and try again!

    Thank you. Just restored the darkobas backup, but now it's stuck at the 1+ logo. Is it because of the different firmware? Should i just try reflashing darkobas with the firmware instead?

    Please help! i tried to reflash darkobas from oxygenos, but it doesn't work properly. It says "updater process ended with error: 7, failed to installed zip" I'm not too sure how to fix this, not even sure if it will restore my oxygenos backup properly either?

    Try a clean flash instead! If it still doesn't work! Try manually flashing the TWRP again! And then try and clean flash!

    Hi, I am little bit desperate.
    My problem is with the microphone. The people calling me hear me very low. I read that I need to enter some parameters on the phone to fix this. In order to do this, I need first to ROOT my phone.
    I have android 6.01 and Cyaonogen OS 13.1.2.
    I unlocked the bootloader, installed TWRP recovery and my issue is in the last step, flashing SuperSU: When I reboot my oneplus one in recovery mode I do not get any option to install SuperSU. Can you please help me?

    Dear all,

    I have a general question to ask about Root operation for OPO :

    I unfortunately deleted some pictures and movies from my phone. In fact, I deleted "Camera" folder by mistake... my bad.

    I have a pro version of disk digger app, it works very well but to recover my whole lost data, I need to use it in root mode.

    I readed many tutorials about How to root an OPO and I am little bit confused and worried because :

    I want to root my OPO without a full wipe and my OS is 13.1.2-ZNH2KAS3PO-bacon

    I am asking the community, Could you be kind and help me by linking a full process please ?

    In advance, thank you very much.
