    Look, people need to get off their search high horse sometimes. I decided to search for "root without losing data" and out of 19 results, the only relevant ones were this thread. Check for yourself: https://forums.oneplus.net/search/4990550/?q=root without losing data&o=relevance&c[node]=2

    In a perfect world, that search would always work and users would always remember to use it. Neither of those two are perfect though. Thank you for at least including answers in your post to help the OP, and also thank you for creating the cool / simple One+ Like ratio PHP script.

    Is there a way to run without using your legs?

    You can't flash SuperSU without unlocking your bootloader first. There was a way to boot TWRP and flash it in 25R but it was "fixed" in a future update.

    If your bootloader is unlocked then you wouldn't loose any data.

    Guessing, you havent unlocked your bootloader huh?

    That is one problem with google style (aka keyword) searching. You have to know the magic words.

    The other problem, as minderwiessen pointed out, is that you get a lot of garbage.

    One solution is to look for posts with [GUIDE] in the subject, but those frequently aren't useful, either.

    So, the problem is structural, not individual. I don't like seeing the same questions over and over again, either, but the solution isn't telling people to use google or to search the forums, it is to create very high quality FAQs and guides, and to somehow make those very visible to newbies. Or to hire librarians <g>.

    Then, yes, you have unlocked the bootloader, and can reroot without loosing data. Not that making a backup first isn't always a good idea.

    I don't if that's the right place to ask a question for the problem that I encountered.
    So I ask you to forgive me if I am in the wrong thread.

    I am on the latest stock rom. Today I upgraded some apps and suddenly I lost all of my pics and videos and some other data. I haven't unlocked the bootloader before and obviously my phone isn't rooted too. I tried recover my lost data but most of the apps like Disk Digger work on rooted phone. I tried some other software on windows but didn't worked too...

    If I unlock bootloader and root my device would I still have a possibility to recover my lost pics and videos or not. I am afraid that the answer is probably not.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Unlocking bootloader will erase everything. Rooting your device won't erase anything.
