With the latest launch of OnePlus 6T, the company continues to impress some of the best handsets in terms of root and modding. OnePlus has made it easy to get started with the rotation process as soon as possible. The OnePlus devices follow the same core principles that Google uses for their Pixels, which is outstanding news for both the user and the development page.
Whether you're a professional on the rotating stuff or just starting OnePlus 6T is a solid choice to dive into the modding scene. The most popular and universal method for gaining root access on any new Android device will be through the method of installing Magic. One of the main benefits of using Magic is that you can keep Google's security network flag triggering, which may cause some apps to deny user access.
Step 1: Unlock Your Bootloader
Before you can start installing Magic to your device, make sure your boot charger is unlocked. If you do, you can install any custom firmware that is compatible with your device.
When the boot charger is unlocked, you can see if you have unlocked the launcher. You will be able to proceed with installing TWRP on your device. . This is a custom reset that is required to blink custom firmware and ZIP files, such as Magic. If you have not installed TWRP on your OnePlus 6T yet, check the wizard on how to do it.
You now need to download the most important Magic ZIP file, which contains both the Magic System itself and the Magic Manager app. The app provides you with an interface to install modules, manage root-related permissions for your apps, and even lets you hide specific problem issues from tripling Google's security network through the Magic Hide feature. Download the file below with your phone or transfer the file from your computer to the phone's "Download" folder.
Now that you have the Magic file you need to access root; You must enter TWRP so you can complete the installation process. Access the power menu on the device by slowly pressing the power button and then selecting "Reset". If you do not see the "Recovery" option, you must enable Advanced Reboot.
Step 5: Flash Magic
If you are running the latest version of TWRP that decrypts the internal memory (3.2.3 -6), you will be asked to enter your PIN or password. When you do, you should be on the TWRP main menu and ready to move to the Magical installation. Start by pressing "Install" and navigate to the folder where the Magic ZIP file is stored. The default location that most browsers save files to will be in the "Download" folder. Point to the file you want to install and then start the "Quick to confirm Flash" button to begin.
It will now be installed Magic to your device, so let it do things and you're ready to go in no time! Once you have installed it, continue and press "Reboot System" to get back to your operating system. Now you go into the app box on your home screen, and you should notice a new app called "Magic Manager."
Go ahead and open the Magisk Manager app and from the main menu you want to use "Tap to launch SafetyNet Check". You should be prompted to download an extension required for Magic to start the SafetyNet check. Touch "Yes" to confirm the download, and within seconds you'll see the amazing message "SafetyNet Check Success".
This means you not only have full root access, but your device has also gone through Google's security network controls, which is exactly what you're looking for! You do not have to worry about losing access to apps like Netflix, Android Pay, and even some newer games as much. Now you're ready to explore what the world of rooting has to offer to your OnePlus 6T. Happy modding!
