How To Update OnePlus 6 or 6T Without Root Access – No Computer Required «OnePlus :: Gadget Hacks



One of the biggest drawbacks of rooting is that the monthly update can be tricky with every new security patch. For other phones, you may have had to completely remove the device from the root directory, perform inventory recovery, or even update all factory images to get a new update. Fortunately, OnePlus has made this process very easy for us modders.

In the earlier days of the root scene, it was a bit complicated, but you can now easily upgrade to new devices like OnePlus 6 or 6T, as long as you can still maintain root access. It's almost as simple as native downloading and installing an OTA update on a standard device, but not completely . I'll show you the few quick steps you need to do to update your OnePlus 6T without worrying about the entire tire-jumping.

Prerequisites

Step 1: Download the OTA Update

When you start updating your OnePlus 6 or 6T, you must first download the latest update file from the official OnePlus website to your phone's internal memory. The file is quite large and can take up to ten minutes, depending on the network connection.

Step 2: Make sure you have TWRP

It is important that you have the TWRP installer in the internal memory of your phone for safekeeping. The reason for this is that you can permanently flash TWRP after applying the OTA update. Otherwise, stock recovery will be restored to your system.

So, go to one of the following links from your phone and search for the latest version of TWRP. The links may not be okay. Pay attention to the date column on the right and select the link next to the latest date. From there, tap the first "Download …" link on the following page.

Step 3: Make sure you have Magisk

As with TWRP, you should have the latest Magisk installation ZIP file in your phone's internal memory so that you can flash it after applying the update. If you skip the Magisk Flash before the next boot, you may find yourself stuck in an endless boot loop after installing the OTA update. Magisk needs to be flashed to install a few patches after the update, so you can boot properly with Android again.

To download the latest version, click on the following link. Tap Assets to expand a menu, and then select the first link (the APK link) from the options displayed.

Step 5: Install the OTA Update

After you are in the TWRP main menu, tap Install. Locate the folder where you will put the three files from previous steps, first tap the OTA act update file to add to the installation queue. You then want to enable the Drag Through to Confirm Flash slider to install the OTA update first.

The update includes the entire operating system, so you can expect the installation time to be at least several minutes. It may sometimes seem frozen in the first step, but you'll need to be patient with it before you can move on to the second step.

Step 6: Install TWRP and restart for recovery

Once the OTA file installation is complete, click the back arrow to return to the previous screen. Then tap on the installation file for TWRP and install it in the same way as before. When you're done, tap the Home button to get to the main screen, and then choose "Reboot" and "Recovery." All that remains is to reinstall Magisk. After restarting to restore and entering your PIN when prompted, you should return to the TWRP main menu. So tap on the "Install" button, select the Magisk ZIP file from your Download folder and drag the slider to install it. When done, click on "Restart System".

From here you should be ready to start! After completing the boot process, you should now receive the latest Oxygen OS update for OnePlus 6T with full root access and TWRP.

The same installation process works for OnePlus Beta builds. So you can test all the latest updates of the beta versions of Oxygen OS while maintaining root access. Once you've finished testing these updates, you can flash the stable version directly with the same instructions. Have fun!
