    Use Magisk to tackle safety net ;)

    Try format data, as you've just unlocked so it should not make a difference

    I will always post the link to full zips on the update thread that can be flashed via twrp.

    I recommend all if you don't have a storage issue, else you can pick and choose, the heads are all self explanatory

    Hi, I'm a bit confused over whether or not to enable modifications from TWRP or not.
    I've seen a couple of guides to rooting the OP5T, and have rooted all my previous phones, but never used Magisk before. Some say allow modifications, others say not to.
    If I want it to pass Safetynet when rooted should I disallow modifications? Will rooting still work if I disallow modifications.
    Thanks.

    Great guide, and surely thats one way of rooting your OnePlus..
    However why even bother unlocking the bootloader in the first place?
    OnePlus (unintentionally) ships all their phones with the Qualcomm diagnostic app "EngineerMode" preinstalled.
    If you decompile the apk you will notice an activity "DiagEnabled" which if opened with a specific password "Angela" can be used to gain full root access on the smartphone without unlocking the bootloader.

    Can I just dirty flash this .zip file (see screenshot) in TWRP or do I need to do a clean flash?

    Hi. Just updated TWRP to the latest with help of 'Official TWRP app' from Google store, then rebooted, dirty-flashed full OTA, flashed latest Magisk (before booting into system) ... wiped cache and dalvik, rebooted to system ... and all worked fine.

    Also did TWRP backup before all that, just in case [e]1f609[/e]

    Awesome! So you just flashed the official TWRP with the TWRP app? No other steps? Will the backups made with Bluspark TWRP still work with the official one? :)

    Yup ... this app is really handy.

    There should be no difference between backups, but to be on the safe side you can do another backup after flashing TWRP but before flashing the OS.

    Why is this necessary now? I've never had to do this before.
