How to Root OnePlus 6 w/ TWRP & Magisk! [New Method]

While OnePlus 6 root method works fine as it is, TWRP officially released their official version of TWRP, which makes rooting the OnePlus 6 slightly easier as now TWRP recovery can be easily booted using the command, “fastboot boot TWRP”.  Now, you can also install TWRP recovery permanently with the TWRP installer ZIP file but I do not recommend it as it has a bug where the user may end up in a bootloop.

However, you can use the TWRP image file to boot into TWRP using fastboot and flashing files once booted works flawless.  You can simply boot TWRP temporarily using fastboot whenever you need to flash files using TWRP until TWRP team has fixed the issue.

Here’s the update root method for OnePlus 6.

First, unlock your bootloader using our guide How to Unlock Bootloader on OnePlus 6!(Also you can use our universal guide on How to unlock Bootloader on Any Android!)

Step 1. Enable “Developer options” in About phone.

Step 2. Power off phone, make sure USB is disconnected then boot into fastboot mode.

Step 3. Once in fastboot mode, connect to computer using USB cabble.

Step 4. Download and latest TWRP image.
