With the recent launch of the OnePlus 6T, the company continues to impress us with some of the best handsets when it comes to rooting and modding. OnePlus has made it so easy to put the rooting process into operation as soon as possible. The OnePlus devices follow the same basic principles that Google uses for their pixels, which is great news for both the user and the development of things.
Whether you're a professional in rooting or starting with the OnePlus 6T is a great choice for immersing yourself in the modding scene. The most popular and universal way to gain root access on any new Android device is to install Magisk. The main benefit of using Magisk is that you can prevent Google from releasing the SafetyNet flag, which may cause certain apps to deny user access.
: Unlock the Boot Loader
Before You Begin Installing Magisk On Your Device, Make sure Your Boot Loader Is Unlocked. This allows you to install any custom firmware compatible with your device. If you have not unlocked the bootloader, read the instructions.
Once the bootloader is unlocked, you can install TWRP on your device. This is a custom recovery required for flashing custom firmware and ZIP files like Magisk. If you have not already installed TWRP on your OnePlus 6T, read the instructions.
Now you need to download the Magisk ZIP file that contains both the Magisk core system itself and the Magisk Manager app contains. The app provides you with an interface to install modules, manage root-related permissions for your apps, and even view specific "problematic" apps that trigger Google SafetyNet using the "Magisk Hide" feature. Download the following file from your phone or transfer the file from your computer to the Download folder of your phone.
Now you have the Magisk file you need for root access; You must start TWRP to complete the installation process. Enter the power menu of your device by holding down the power button and selecting "Recovery". If the "Recovery" option is not displayed, you must enable Advanced Reboot.
Step 5: Flash Magisk
When you run the latest version of TWRP that decrypts the internal memory (3.2 .3-6), you will be asked to enter your PIN or password. Once you have done that, you should be in the TWRP main menu and proceed with installing Magisk. First, tap Install and navigate to the folder where Magisk's ZIP file is stored. The default location where most web browsers store files is in the Download folder. Tap the file you want to install and launch the Swipe slider to confirm Flash.
Now Magisk will be installed on your device. So let it go, and you can start working right away! When you have successfully completed the installation, tap "Reboot System" to re-enter your operating system. Now go into the app drawer of your launcher and you should see a new app called "Magisk Manager".
Open the Magisk Manager App, and from the main menu you want to use the "Tap to start SafetyNet exam" option. You should be prompted to download an extension that is required for Magisk to start the SafetyNet exam. Tap "Yes" to confirm the download, and then you should see the impressive "SafetyNet Check Success" message within seconds.
This means you not only have full root access, but your device also passed Google's SafetyNet exams – exactly what you're looking for! Do not worry about losing access to apps like Netflix, Android Pay and even some newer games. Now you can find out what the One-Plus 6T World of Roots has to offer. Happy modding!
