    Use magisk to root it. Long as you got adb and fastboot on ur pc and the phone's bootloader is unlocked you can root like this...

    1)download the magisk manager.

    2)get the ota .zip file for the android version you are running.

    3)get payload-dumperwin64.zip and unzip it.

    4)unzip the ota.

    5)put the payload.bin file from the ota into the input folder for payload dumper.

    6)run payload dumper.

    7)get the boot.img from the output folder of the payload dumper.

    8)copy the boot.img to your phone.

    9)open magisk manager.

    10)press install, then install, then 'select and patch a file'.

    11)select the boot.img

    12)once the boot.img is patched it will be renamed magisk_patched.img, copy the magisk_patched.img to your computer.

    13)start your phone in fastboot mode

    14)on your computer open a command prompt and type 'fastboot flash boot (and the magisk_patched.img file location)'

    15)once successful type 'fastboot reboot'

    ROoT! Super easy right? And yes, it works with 10 stable. Just make sure to use magisk manager 20.1.

    Then as far as twrp goes, you can try flashing the retention module w magisk once ur rooted. IDK if itll work on android 10 or not. I didnt try it.

    If u use substratum, u can get this badass edge lighting notification for when ur screen is off.. Check it out https://forum.xda-developers.com/on...ratum-deadlyghost-horizon-light-t3997483/amp/

    Also the same guy makes custom fingerprint animations. https://forum.xda-developers.com/oneplus-6t/themes/substratum-deadlyghost-fingerprint-t3933018/amp/

    OH!! And after ur rooted.. next time u need to ota update, it is super easy to keep from losing root After ur install the ota update, BUT before rebooting, open magisk, go to install then go to install to second slot. then reboot. Then when u boot up u will still be rooted.

    I think your best bet is to upgrade by using the 'settings > system > system updates > local upgrade' method. THEN root, THEN install the newest version of twrp. You have to DL the ota off of oxygen updater, then put it into your /sdcard directory, if it isnt already in there, for it to show up on the local upgrade tho.

    If u scroll up a ways I explain how I rooted after I upgraded to ten. Use magisk apk to patch the boot image u extract from the ota u used to update. I explain it better in that post.

    Hi sorry to resurrect this thread but I've been away on rooting scene for a while now.

    question: will this work on OP6T with Android 10.3.5? my boot loader is already unlocked.
