    I have a OnePlus 5 and have decided I want to root my device. yes I have my reasons. what is the best and stable way to root a OP device in 2019? I have rooted devices before but this was a long time ago. what apps do I use to root, and what are pros and cons of certain apps to use. also wouldn't mind tips of recovery to go back to stock Android in case things go to hstiay

    If you haven't mastered the use of the search button, are you sure you're up to rooting?

    I have searched for answers but some either aren't about rooting a phone (just about other rooting things) or are 2 years or more old. I have looked up articles on Google but most of the time they can't really be trusted so I decided to ask the OP community. no need for you to get like this let's stay formal and give actual information

    Your phone is 2 years old, why would the VERY HELPFUL rooting guides not be 2 years old?

    There is no such thing as a OnePlus5 only rooting method. rooting methods like magisk are not "OnePlus 6t" only, I am sorry to break it to you. I just wanted to know in what way people root now days, since things like towelroot aren't an option anymore like it was 5 years ago. I have no clue what I said in my initial question that made you so angry when I started this thread, but there is no reason to spew out nonsense because you had a bad day. I just wanted some help, have a good day

    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.
