Thanks for this. This is my first OnePlus device. I'm coming from a 5-year-old HTC One so updating pretty much meant wiping phone completely and reinstalling the ROM. I watched that video on the local update method. Good to know that even the full ROM installation doesn't wipe my data.

I do need some clarification on some things, though. I'm case 2 - stock ROM, unlocked BL & rooted. I have YouTube Vanced installed via Magisk as well as AdAway. I assume those would be considered modifications. In this guide, https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=78026660&postcount=3, it says that rooted users need to first uninstall Magisk & restore images before installing the update. Then reinstall Magisk after updating. But here it doesn't mention the need to do this. What's the difference between these two processes? I've read lots of posts lately where people get into a soft brick situation after making some modifications. But I'm not seeing any explinations as to why this happens & I'd like to avoid that.

If I use the local update method from this thread, will Magisk survive the update and will I still be rooted? Or will I need to reinstall it & re-root?

If you flash a stock rom you will lose all the mods you already do, root and twrp included. If you want you can keep the root, i will attach a image guide.

Those are the instructions that I was referring to that had me a bit confused. Is there any benefit to doing the update that way compared to using the local update method and re-flashing Magisk, the way I did when I rooted the first time? Does one method have less potential for messing something up?

Hey guys,
Re: OnePlus6T, Oxygen OS 9.0.7
SOS: Can anyone give me a Guide for Dummies (lol) kinda tutorial on how to unroot, remove twrp, remove magisk, remove adb+fastboot and everything else that had been done in the process of rooting+modding. (root as per https://oneplus.gadgethacks.com/how-to/root-your-oneplus-6t-with-magisk-0190586/ ) (stereo mod as per https://forum.xda-developers.com/oneplus-6t/themes/magisk-stereo-speaker-mod-oneplus-6t-t3860041)

Actually, i am a total newbie/non-techie. But right after updating to os 9.0.7, i took fancy to having a stereo output through the earpiece, too. But in the end, there was no sound from the earpiece. Also, i found some other complications in other sections of the phone, although i don't know whether they were related/due to the stereo mod or the rooting process. And being a non-techie, I did not want to tinker with my phone any further. So, i decided to roll back and intuitively (1)first uninstalled stereo mod from magisk, (2)then uninstalled magisk from within the magisk itself, (3)then used the case #2 method, illustrated at https://forum.xda-developers.com/oneplus-6t/how-to/how-to-update-return-to-stock-oneplus-6-t3870795 to go back to the stock rom.
But i find that i have still not gone fully back to the factory state. When booting, i find the screen which informs me about the unlocked fastboot status, etc., which shows that twrp etc are still on my system. I would certainly want to go back to the factory condition. Will someone of you guide me step by step (as i am a non-techie) into removing this fastboot, twrp, etc. and bring me back to the factory condition and also (ii)in removing any fastboot/adb related things, if any, from my windows 10 PC? I shall be very grateful, as I am scared as well as left with no further technical skill to delve further into technical misadventure. It was my big mistake to undertake this exercise, without possessing any technical knowhow, i admit.
Anyway, someone please help.

Hi I need your help, Iwant yo re-lock the bootloader on my OnePlus 6T

I did the ''root'' because I wanted to change the font and improve the sound but tlost quality on Netflix, and I that is important to me because I use it a lot. I want to back to L1

The problem was when I tried to eliminate the ''root'' (magisk) The system did not star and i was afraid because Iam not an expert so i flashed the ''full OTA'' and it works again, Now I want to remove twrp but I dont know how so I need help because i dont want brick my phone

First post is pretty clear. If you don't know what to do go with the fastboot method, the local update method (if that's what you did with full OTA) must have overwritten your recovery anyway. Boot in recovery to see which recovery you have.

Hello,


I used your fastboot guide yesterday to recover my phone but I accidently flashed a newer version (9.0.10) then I had (9.0.7).
Do I need to reflash my device? If so with what method?


Steps I did:
1. Boot TWRP and wiped all except Internal Storage

2. Reboot in to the bootl;oader

3. Unpacked 9.0.10-OnePlus6TOxygen_34_OTA_017_all_1812111237_f52c4612-FASTBOOT.zip

4. Used flash-all.bat


5. Phone rebooted and working


I did not used TWRP because it did not show the correct internal storage??? If antone knows how to fix that please let me know using latest blu_spark TWRP

    The second case?..Im rooted with twrp and stock rom on 6t..
    so I have to flash the eventually full rom via twrp? !? which twrp?

    No, the recommended is the local update
    3
    You can download the latest and do a local install.
    That will remove root and leave the phone with a locked BL.
    No it won't. Flashing a stock ROM (or any ROM) doesn't change bootloader status. It will unroot of course.

    1. During local upgrade, after system rebooted it went on bootloop. So I have to factory reset it from recovery.
    You didn't verify if you are now using the latest OOS version or still the one from December. When in doubt, download latest here (currently 9.0.11). Older OOS versions struggle with modified boot images and actually need Magisk to boot.

    2. During reset I found out that TWRP has been replaced by stock recovery. So I presumed that Magisk has been removed also.
    This is normal and if you did a factory reset (data wipe) then Magisk Manager will have been removed as well, you are correct. You need to install TWRP again after every stock upgrade.

    3. Also the bootloader was still unlocked so I have to manually lock it through " fastboot oem lock".
    I strongly advise against this! Locking a bootloader after unlocking serves absolutely no purpose and in some cases even damages partitions. The only valid reason one might have to lock again is to resell in original state.

    4. The unexpected thing was that root checker app was showing that root has not been properly setup.
    In my experience root checkers aren't always correct (e.g. the request window wasn't shown or missed by the user). A better way to check this is by installing Magisk Manager. Find all Magisk resources here and make sure you're on the latest (stable) version of both the manager and the root method itself.

    Mind that the official OOS zips can be flashed via TWRP, this allows you to retain root or to properly wipe if you'd like a fresh start without any root. This will still destroy TWRP but you can mitigate this by performing a TWRP install right after the ROM flash (if TWRP is still desired).

    I don't know what was wrong with my magisk hide. It was not working properly.

    I had same setup but with stable OOS but until I deny Google Play Services Telephone Access, mobile payments never worked.

    Moreover after denying that access other apps behaved abnormally.


    Also I was successful to relock my bootloader with the command. If it wasn't stock then my phone would have been bricked. Correct?
    I... Don't know. I never considered locking a bootloader purposely. Let alone while it's running a custom ROM. Either it'll just get locked in on the ROM (probably removing root) or it'll create a vacuum in your house which will eventually implode and drag your entire neighbourhood to bits.

    It could also deny the lock command, let's hope Android chose this path. You'd most likely have to unlock again if it did work.

    Google clearly doesn't like being denied access ?
    Anyway, telephone access is commonly needed and usually it's merely used to read phone state so it can handle interruptions by an incoming caller properly. Big G also uses this permission for when you shout 'Hey Google, call my ex and then hang up in her!'*.

    *Not an actually working command. Believe me, I've tried.
