Hello guys, i just got home from the OnePlus popup event in Amsterdam. And i just finished rooting the OnePlus 6T.
Requirements: ADB/Fastboot
First unlock your bootloader if you haven't already done it, there are many tutorials on the internet.
Download Blu_Sparks OP6 TWRP 9.86(.img and .zip) or newer.
Then boot into bootloader and do: fastboot boot twrp-3.2.3-x_blu_spark_v9.86_op6.img
When you're in TWRP go to Advanced>Adb sideload and start it.
Then do: adb sideload twrp-3.2.3-x_blu_spark_v9.86_op6.zip
After that installs, reboot recovery. Then go to advanced>adb sideload and start it again
Then do: adb sideload Magisk-v17.3.zip
after that finished just reboot back to oos and you're rooted!

Can we skip the second install (adb sideload twrp zip) to just sideload Magisk and keep stock recovery for now

Auto answering, it works without flashing for good twrp, just adb sideload Magisk zip once you've booted into temporary twrp img

Don't forget to install Magiskmanager apk then.
Will evidently need to be repeated at each OOS update if boot is replaced

What's the correct procedure when an OOS OTA is released?

Are we safe to install and then just reflash TWRP and Magisk?

You need to keep stock recovery to be able to use OTA, To use TWRP you'll have to download the whole oos ROM, flash it and then you need to reflash TWRP and magisk as there is no separate recovery partition on op6 /6t

Why need the magisk zip to be sideloaded..
Can not be just flashed through the temporary twrp?

Because it's temporary you have to use sideload, as TWRP is present only in ram, and it seems that the op6 version have difficulties to decrypt op6t data partition if I understood correctly. And because I didn't want to flash for good TWRP on the phone to keep stock recovery.

can u please elaborate sir ??


It's not very easy as you need to extract boot.img from the full oos zip(or extract it from your phone with fastboot), patch the boot img, then fastboot flash it back. Far more simple to to it as explained. And you need a computer anyway.

And with the new slot A/B architecture you need anyway a computer each time you flash a ROM, as you need to reinstall TWRP each time, due to the lack of recovery partition here (it's been 'replaced' by vendor partition necessary for Treble compatibility) .

I had rooted my 6T and was installing midnight core magisk module. After flashing it in magisk i rebooted the phone and now im stuck in bootloop. I tried sideloading Magisk Uninstaller, But it gives me some error. Tried sideloading magisk, but still stuck in bootloop. Any suggestions?

    Hey, can you tell how to make a nandroid backup of oneplus 6t using this twrp. I tried doing the same, it gives error.

    Can not create '/data/media/0TWRP' folder (Required key not available). Failed to make backup folder.

    I tried it with and without setting pattern on the phone. Maybe this is happening because my phone is still encrypted, if this is the case please tell how to decrypt and then make the nandroid backup.
