Just got my OP8 after years on my trusty rooted OP6. Seems like things have changed a tiny bit...
So I'd like to ask this: I want to root it and also enroll in the OB program. Which process should I follow? Should I update the just-unboxed phone or avoid any updates and follow the first post guides before anything?
After unlocking the bootloader, you have a few options: Magisk Installer, Small Patcher, or a custom rom that "roots" your phone
The errors told you what to do my friend haha "FAILED (remote: Please flash unlock token first.)"So I keep getting this stupid pattern with trying to unlock my oneplus 8 phone, I have the token from oneplus
I can see my device in fastboot devices
I type fastboot flash boot (file location)
It looks like its going to work and then says:
target reported max download size of 805306368 bytes
sending 'boot' (0 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.000s]
FAILED (remote: Flashing is not allowed in Lock State)
Is that not why I got that token??
I try fastboot oem unlock and I get
FAILED (remote: Please flash unlock token first.)
finished. total time: 0.000s
I am in this stupid circle of death!!!!!
Yes I know that it was telling me it needed the token, I have done the unlock Code.bin like I said and it tells me that it can't do it while lockedThe errors told you what to do my friend haha "FAILED (remote: Please flash unlock token first.)"
Fastboot doesn't just "know" you have a token now. You need to flash that token to the device to be able to unlock it.
To flash the unlock token run "fastboot flash cust-unlock Unlock_Code.bin" Make sure your unlock.bin file is named like so and in the directory of your fastboot tools
Than, after you flash the unlock token, you can unlock your bootloader like this "fastboot oem unlock"
Before any of this make sure you have "Enable OEM unlocking" turned on in settings.
