    nice work man, just one question
    both TWRP and CWM are available?
    and do you think we will get a rom from MIUI or PHANDROID ?

    As long as its Oxygen, the steps remain the same.
    Glad it worked for you.
    Just a matter of time.

    After flashing SuperSU in TWRP and doing a factory reset/wipe, how long should it take the OP3 to boot?

    I feel like I've been stuck on the 1+ Powered by Android screen for far too long.

    That worked! I originally flashed SuperSU version 2.46, and this latest version got me rooted!

    I tried that a few times, no luck.

    Ended up flashing the stock OTA firmware, rebooting, flashing the systemless SuperSU, rebooting and it's working now :)

    Can't I just boot TWRP to get a nandroid and leave the stock recovery in place. I have done this before but when I use the command
    fastboot boot recover.img
    is displays the ... 2 OKAY messages I expect but phone does not reboot into TWRP just locks up and I have to hold the power button to reboot. Am I missing something, yes bootloader is unlocked.
    TIA

    Glad that it worked, keep the stock rom handy for these situations and also keep a nandroid just in case. ADB push also comes handy

    Fastboot boot recovery does not work on OP3 as of now, you can have stock recovery later

    Nope as of now TWRP is not official so does not offer that functionality. You have to take the backup manually

    No you won't
