Other Rooting OP5 for data recovery

    I would like to root my OnePlus 5 in order to let data recovery programs access the entire drive.
    But so far, Kingo Root and Root Genius failed, though I unlocked the OEM bootloader and have debugging and file transfer checked (and given the PC rooting apps permission when the popups came on). One of the programs said something like "this was a tough one to root"...
    What can be the problem?

    Oneplus 5 A5000, build number A5000_23_190118
    Android version 9 (OxygenOS 9.0.3)

    I have aeroplane mode turned on (don't want random apps to start overwriting files) and am connected through USB.

    Can you recommend a good tutorial for a newbie?

    Also, I'm getting double opinions about whether rooting will wipe the phone. As recovery programs recommend rooting apps, I take it that wiping is not a necessary consequence?

    you are still living in past my friend. those apps are useless garbage. Magisk is the no 1 rooting solution these days. use that. i doubt that you can recover much using after market free software.

    Thank you both. But how can I recover data at all if all data are wiped during root (as it says in that explanatory link)? That one puzzles me. Or will I have an almost empty drive (except OS) but with the 1's and 0's still in place for recovery?

    And that did not wipe your data ?

    Sorry, I think I ticked the checkbox for *allowing* this.
    So for recovery to be possible, should I untick this again? Or will the data be there, though deleted?

    You already wiped the data. Move on.

    You have to unlock the bootloader to root your phone. If you unlock the bootloader your data will be wiped. No chance to unlook without wipeing.

    I see a lot of replies here, though not sure I understand.
    - For deep scan and recovery, I need to root.
    - To root I need to unlock the bootloader.
    - If I unlock the bootloader, my data will be wiped.
    So the recovery program will then search on a virtual memory card with wiped data, but with the information still there in the huge collection of binary "junk" marked as free space?

    you wont b able to recover any thing even after doing all this

    wiping data means writing memory over (overwrite) and all data will be 0

    iam unlocked day 1 , formatted 4 or 5 times and never able to recover data

    so just forget

    So why do makers of recovery programs claim you can do a deep scan on android after rooting, if rooting will always wipe all data...?

    Or is this a specific thing for OnePlus, whereas other phones are not necessarily wiped on rooting?
