OnePlus 8T
This guide should work with all variants that were converted from OxygenOS to ColorOS (Spoofed as OnePlus KB2000) on Build Number KB2000_11_C.01, but I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DATA LOSS, DAMAGE, OR BROKEN DEVICES, OR ANY DAMAGE THAT OCCURS BY FLASHING THESE FILES.

ONLY
devices converted to ColorOS using this guide have been tested with this method.

Fingerprint sensor WILL NOT work after flashing those files.

Before following the steps make sure you have done the following things:
Unlocked your bootloader
Downloaded and installed Minimal ADB and Fastboot
Downloaded these 2 files:
patched-boot.img
vbmeta.img



Step 1 - Download and install magisk manager on your OnePlus 8T (Download)
Step 2 - Boot into fastboot mode by holding Power + VolumeUP + VolumeDOWN at the same time until fastboot appears
Step 3 - launch fastboot into the same directory as the patched boot and vbmeta
Step 4 - Run the following commands:
fastboot flash boot 0518_magisk_patched-23000_Zj6yn.img
fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta 0518_vbmeta.img
Step 5 - Launch Magisk Manager and run a "direct install"



If you run into issues or just want to revert you can download the attached zip and run the commands (in fastboot mode) below inside the extracted zip to revert the system (data will not be affected) to the previous state and restore fingerprint functionality
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img

The general rooting method involves patching the stock boot.img file via Magisk and then flashing it to the boot partition via Fastboot Commands. However, when it comes to rooting OnePlus ColorOS, things are a little bit different. Apart from patching and flashing the stock boot.img file, you will also have to patch the vendor_boot and then flash it to its respective partition.
