Hello guys!

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?

Thanks!

I'm on the same boat, just will get my OP8 8/128 tomorrow. Coming from an OP6 as well.

I'd like to do the same you wanted. To enroll into the OB program and to root. Any tips?

Ok guys, I just got the OP8. Can anyone tell me what would be the first step, after unlocking the bootloader, in order to get it rooted?

Flashing or booting from patched img still not working here, tried the 11.0.2.2.in21aa patched which is exactly what i have and my phone stays on the animation shown below no matter how long I wait. I have magisk manager etc installed but i am not rooted since I must have messed up the updated to Android 11 somehow. Anything I'm doing wrong/anyone had the same issue? (I'm using fastboot boot magisk-patched.img)
