OnePlus Developers Post Root Tutorial On YouTube To Familiarize Yourself With The Process
Several smartphone manufacturers have stated from the very beginning that rooting your Android handset will result in the immediate void of your device’s warranty. OnePlus and its developers are using the completely opposite approach, and you will see this thanks to the inclusion of a video tutorial present at the bottom.
OnePlus Smartphones’ Tutorial Video Posted By Developers Aims To Make You More Comforting Over The Rooting Process
OnePlus developers will definitely be doing their level best to ensure that users feel extremely comfortable in rooting their devices. On the opposite end of the smartphone manufacturers club, most OEMs do their best to push their own software and discourage root users and community developers from doing what they do best. Such companies also go to extreme lengths by making the rooting process extremely difficult through the patching of root exploits when they pop up. OnePlus developers do not only want to change the stance of making users comfortable with the rooting process, they’ve gone as far as posting a simple step-by-step tutorial on how you can unlock the bootloader of your device.
Carlo, who is one the finest members of OnePlus’ ROM development team, has provided every inch of detail on how you too can make the rooting process a walk in the park. We have posted a video right at the bottom, so be sure to check that out before you proceed. By the end of the video tutorial, you will have an unlocked bootloader, with a custom recovery loaded and SuperSU installed in order to give apps root from within Android.
Here Is A Step-By-Step Guide Just In Case You Do Not Want To View The Video
Users will need to get ADB started on their own before moving on with the remainder of the rooting process. You will also have to enable developer options on your phone and this can be done by reading the following steps:
- Go to settings
- Go to ‘About Phone’
- Click on ‘Build Number’ repeatedly
- You will receive a notification on your phone that you have enabled developer options
Next, you should head down to the ‘Developer Options’ menu, where you will be able to see two options: OEM Unlock and USB Debugging.
- Use the package provided by OnePlus on the video to install the Android SDK (This will enable you to use ADB, or Android Debug Bridge)
- Plug your phone into your computer via USB and open up a terminal window by typing ‘cmd’ into the start menu
- From there, you will be guided on using ADB to back up your phone and push the remaining files to it, then reboot
Keep in mind that this entire process will erase all of the data present in your OnePlus device, so make sure that you have saved your important files before proceeding. If you haven’t own a device from the Chinese manufacturer then you will be happy to know that OnePlus X, the company’s first ever to provide a slot for expandable storage, as well as the first from the firm to sport beautiful AMOLED display is available on Amazon so if you are interested in the deal, then make sure that you purchase it before stocks run out.
