    Hello Naman
    We can't install OTA If we don't have stock recovery. That's why I need stock recovery .
    FYI I flashed TWRP by grarak :/ and I can't install the latest update (300mb) . That's why I need it .

    With one word?
    Great
    With two words?
    Absolutely great
    And last but not least, in three words
    Wow, absolutely great

    But serious, if only the people would read before doing all the bricking... ;-)

    Hehe. Thanks. The rooting process is not much different than other OPs though.

    They should work. But I got some PMs that they aren't. I need some TWRP log to find the reason though. I don't have an OP3 for now so can't get you guys Stock Recovery. So, for now, my answer is No till I find a person who flashed it. I saw one person who wasn't able to.

    Thanks. :) A lot thanks to Ansh for taking up the first post. I can't manage any other guide myself now. So, for now, all my guides will have different OPs though all written work will be mine. XD
    Though, this time, Ansh has device and he taught me basics and everything of rooting. He is like a teacher of me. :)
    BTW Got your OP3 yet ?

    BTW Guys. This guide is totally tested. Don't worry for any issues. Though, you will get a message like device is modified etc and a kernel with dm verity disabled needs to be flashed. We can have a list for dm verity disabled stock kernels but I am not at home for building them. No other issues for now. Ignore those messages.

    Hi @Naman Bhalla,
    Thanks for the guide, that's totally awesome!

    Can you add a section explaining how to install Xposed on the O+3?
    Thanks.

    Nah, I'm not going to. Not only is it not too different from OP2 (except externally), I try to keep my devices for as long as they work fine, and nothing wrong with my OP2 yet. :)

    I read from the Technobuffalo that in the Oneplus 3 the bootloader is already opened? Is this true?
    (I ordered OP3 so I would like to know :))

    I got mine from the event in Paris.
    Unfortunately, I haven't had time to unlock the bootloader and root so far.
    I'll do it first thing in the morning and will keep you posted.
