How to root a OnePlus 7T Pro with Magisk, For Noobs!

Search This thread
In this guide, ill be showing you how to root your device using Magisk. This is done at your own risk, i am not responsible for corrupted images, bricked devices etc.

*NOTE: This guide is for the OnePlus 7T Pro only*

What you will need:
A windows PC - idk buy one lol?
Platform tools SDK - https://developer.android.com/studio/releases/platform-tools
USB cable that came with the phone
Magisk Manager APK - https://magiskapp.com/apk/
Your phones current software boot.img! You can either get this from the vendors website, or if you are running a custom OS, you should already have the file.

*Ill be assuming you are familiar with cmd, fastboot commands, and that your bootloader is already unlocked, and you are running a custom recovery! For a guide on how to do the last two things, part of my last guide can help you - https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/how-to-install-android-12-derpfest-for-noobs.4385171/ *

Step 1: Download the magisk apk from the website and install it to your device. After this, copy over the boot.img file that is from your current rom into the downloads folder of your phone! Now, open up magisk manager, and press install beside the 'Magisk' Section on the home screen. Then press 'Select and Patch a FIle'. Now you can select the boot.img file and let Magisk do its thing.

Step 2: Once that process has been completed, you should have a file beginning with 'magisk_patched....img' in your downloads folder. Copy that file over to the platform tools folder in your computer. Now boot your phone into fastboot mode and connect it to your computer. Then on your computer, go to where you placed the magisk_patched file and in the search bar in file explorer type cmd. This should open a cmd window. Then type 'fastboot reboot fastboot' in order to enter your phone into fastbootd mode.

Step 3: Type 'fastboot flash boot 'PATH TO MAGISK_PATCHED FILE'
Let this run and once its done, reboot your phone.
Go to Magisk and Voila you should be rooted!

If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask!
