[How To] Root the OnePlus One + TWRP DL Link

    Patrick Hill, May 28, 2014 :
    Requirements: ADB and Fastboot knowledge


    Here are the root Instructions:
    Download Twrp: http://teamw.in/project/twrp2/231

    copy Supersu.zip to your sdcard: http://download.chainfire.eu/420/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.99.zip

    boot into the bootloader

    run the command:
    Code:
    fastboot boot twrpimgname.img
    (notice it's boot, not flash. It will take about a minute before it boots into twrp)

    flash the SuperSu zip in recovery

    reboot

    go into SuperSU settings and uncheck "Respect CM's root Policy"

    you will then be rooted..

    If you want to flash the recovery instead of just booting it you will have to unlock the bootloader first
    fastboot oem unlock
    then after it wipes the device, boot back into the bootloader and run the command:
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery twrpimgname.img


    Disclaimer: I am not responsible if you use this and brick your device or if your device blows up, implodes, flames start shooting from it, or it kills your neighbor's dog.. It was the other guy... I swear....

    Thank you, @Patrick Hill!!! All I need is the phone now :D:p

    Edit: do you need a separate USB driver for OPO?

    Thanks, but I just might keep it the way it is since most of the things I would usually root for (lol) are already packaged in cyanogen.

    Let's Root his phone.
    <fastboot> <root> <his phone> --now

    Not good in Rooting, Go to youtube and search "How to root Nexus TWRP".
    Same method with OPO Phone. Nothing different at all.

    I'll be rooting only to get Xposed Framework, nothing else at first. After support has stopped I may end up flashing ROMs etc. but when I initially get it, it'll only be for Xposed!

    Oh and Viper4Android because the DSP manager is not great!

    Excellent

    Crossed off my list

    Reasons to not buy the OPO
    1. Can't root
    2. Not field tested
    3. Too big top+bottom bezels for 5.5" screen
    4. Can't get one!
