    Hey folks,

    I've unlocked and rooted, got SuperSu installed and all is fine. Thanks for the instructions!

    However, when I reboot it comes up with that 5 second delay counter. Can I change this behavior so I don't see that screen?

    Thanks!

    Hi - After enabling the developer options and turning on the debugging oem and advanced reboot options , and also after installing ADB from your link, I am having issues with the drivers.
    I connect the OP3 to my PC and the new device wizard starts and tries to install drivers, first it looks at windows update for the drivers then in preconfigured folders then fails :( Any advice?

    upload_2016-6-18_13-1-5.png

    i did install the ADB from the desktop and with 'run as admin'

    Where does the ADB.exe save the drivers to in windows so i can try to manually point to them

    Thanks MOD for the root guide.

    Every time I reboot my phone, my computer pops up with the "your device has been unlocked and can't be trusted" message and reverts back to the home screen. Is there a way to get rid of it?
