The video lasts a bit over 8 minutes and provides step-by-step from absolute scratch, even making it easy for users who have never rooted a phone before. By the end of it, your phone has an unlocked bootloader, custom recovery loaded and SuperSU installed to give apps root from within Android.

How to Root OnePlus Smartphones

The steps, in detail, are as follows. Keep in mind the files provided are for Windows. Mac and Linux users will need to get ADB going on their own before following along with the rest of the class. For starters, you’ll have to enable developer options on your phone.

In Settings, go to About Phone and click on Build Number repeatedly to unlock developer option.

Once you’ve unlocked the Developer Options menu, there are two options in there you’ll want to enable; OEM Unlock and USB Debugging.

• With those in gear, use the package provided by OnePlus on the video to install the Android SDK. This enables you to use ADB, the Android Debug Bridge.

Plug your phone into your computer via USB and open up a terminal window by typing “cmd” into the start menu.
