Hi guys,
I am new to this forum, I hope you will bear with my questions.
I would like to install a clean version, of the official build to my One plus.
I was hoping to install the latest rootable version. It is currently rooted, has Team Win recovery on it.
If I understood correctly, I need to first unroot my device, so I can go on with process.
I tried to use SuperSU, but I encountered with the "supersu binary occupied" error. I followed the instructions on a youtube video (that I can't post here, as a new user).
but no matter what I do, after I press continue to approve the "the su binary needs to be updated", and then normal when I am promoted about: "if you have a custom recovery like twrp or CWM ..." the installation process is stuck. it says:
"installing, please wait , If you see this message for more than five minutes please restart and try again.".
I tried to restart and repeating the process few times.
Any ideas how to proceed ?

You need to download ... https://download.chainfire.eu/921/Su...etrieve_file=1
and flash the zip file in TWRP recovery mode.

You will also need to flash the correct "boot.img" for your specific phone model and current os/rom.
eg. OnePlus 6 , Android 8 ..Oreo..

1. Boot to recovery. TWRP will open.
2. Select " Install" ...navigate to where you have put the UPDATE-unSU-signed.zip ... select and install it.
3. Once the zip is flashed, DO NOT REBOOT.
Return to Install and select the boot.img.....flash/install it.

4. Now Wipe Dalvik and Cache and then select Reboot System.

Once rebooted uninstall the SuperSu app if it is still in your app draw.

Btw.. If the SU app can't load the binary it usually means you are not rooted, your boot.img has not been modified.
It might be advisable to backup your Boot.img, using TWRP recovery, of course, before flashing the SU Update zip.
