hey everyone,
i recently bought the oneplus one from a store. it is the chinese version, but came preinstalled with CM11. Probably the store owner did it because the back of the phone doesnt mention Cyanogenmod. How do i root this phone? when i go into recovery, i get ' Cyanogenmod Simple Recovery <3e> KVT49L

As yours already probably has the bootloader unlocked, skip to step 2.
Alternatively instead of installing the recovery, you can just boot to it - fastboot boot recovery.img and flash the root from recovery afterwards.

Just fastboot flash twrp. I have the Chinese version and it came pre-installed with cm as well and that's what i did to get root.

Bootloader is not unlocked.

Go here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2788632 and read/perform the section about unlocking the bootloader before trying to flash a recovery, etc.
