Hi All,
Can any body please tell me where is preferred network option in oneplus 3. As what I have to do if I want to switch the network permanently to 2G/3G.

Preferred network is the highest speed you will get depending on your network provider.

If you choose LTE, the phone will search for 4G, and if it is not available will jump to 3G or 2G automatically.

But if you 3g, the phone will not search for 4G and jump between 3g and 2f depending on your network provider and network strength

But I am asking about the option which comes in setting menu for other device but it is not present in Oneplus to select the network type to LTE/3G/2G.

Yes there is no way to fix the network to 4G or 3G only. You'll have to use a 3rd party app
There is. See the screenshots.

So because I am feeling pretty lazy and this is a noob thread, I would like to verify my thoughts on rooting & unlocking this phone, as well as throwing future OTAs on it when they come out.

  1. Follow these steps to for unlocking and root
  2. Follow this tutorial (or something similar) for installing xposed
  3. Make a nadroid backup whenever I want to flash a new OTA
  4. Flash said OTA

I am probably missing something here. Last time I heavily modded a phone was my Galaxy S2, way back in the day. My current Galaxy S4 is only rooted, nothing too fancy, because gay Samsung.

Thanks

Once you have installed twrp, you cannot do OTAs

Backup data
Unlock bootloader
Install twrp
Make nandroid and efs backup (MOST IMPORTANT)
Root
Xposed
(Any mod, kernel that you want to install goes here, unless specified otherwise)
Reboot

Sure, I meant that I would dirty flash the OTA zip. I should have been more clear.

And since I will be doing this right off the bat when I get the phone, I have nothing to back up. Otherwise, sounds like what I was thinking. Thanks.

OTAs can't be dirty flashed in twrp I think. You'll have to download full ROM

My question is a little advanced here.. im looking for people who have actually one this so that i can confirm im in the right direction on what im abotu to do..

im on 3.5.4 community beta (stock zip flashed,full rom) with the modded twrp (the one that shows the pointer arrow in twrp)
now i need to revert back to 3.2.4 oxygen os because i need to flash the ressurection remix rom for my device...
i know i can directly flash te 3.2.4 firmware files n flash the rom but im afraid there might be problems...

so people who have either flashed from 3.5.4 to 3.2.4 and those who flashed from 2.5.4 to any of the AOSP roms based on 3.2.4 have succesfully flashed their phones... help me on this.

which is advisable ? a quick flash of rom + recovery ? or go from scratch ? because i know if i flash the firmware, somewhere mid way ill have to flash the official twrp image on my oneplus device before flashing the aosp rom...

Flash 3.5.0/3.2.4 FW through modified TWRP from here depending on whatever is compatible with your ROM.
Then flash TWRP 3.0.2-0 through fast boot.
Then flash your ROM.

If you have any problem at any step, whatever you do, do not relock your boot loader.

    Hi! I am new to oneplus forum. Can anyone please answer these doubts:

    1. There seems to be different versions of TWRP floating around i.e. Official TWRP 3.0.2-1, modified 3.0.2-19 and 3.0.2-22. From what I have read till now, different people are using different versions. So, what is the difference between these 3 versions?
    2. If I am on either official or modified TWRP, and flash official OTA or full zip of stock oos rom then will I lose my custom recovery and get stock recovery or there will be no change in recovery partition.
    3. I am hoping, recovery has it's own separate partition and will not be affected by rom flashing?
    4. Why are there instructions for flashing a particular version of stock OOS before flashing any custom roms? Does the version needs to be exactly same of latest i.e. 3.2.7 or CB 3.5.5 will do fine?

    Thanks in advance :)


    The 3.0.2-1 is official twrp. Community builds don't work with it. So there are some modified versions. Use the -22 as it works with everything

    2) This depends. If you flash full zip and directly boot to system, sometimes you loose twrp. Community builds have this annoying habit. BTW, you cannot flash ota using twrp

    3) it has a separate partition but full oos zip comes with its own recovery which replace twrp

    4) this has to to do with different firmwares. I haven't really explored this in detail but follow the instructions in ROM thread. Like 3.2.4 fw is required for resurrection and 3.2.6 for Sultan's. There is a thread on firmwares too. You should read that.

    Hello everyone, i believe i just posted something at a wrong place, because i can't find my thread anymore, i'm trying now here, sorry if there were double post. .... So... I'm just in the process of buying a used OnePlus 3 phone. Could you give me any advice what to check on the phone? Were there faulty ones (like weak GPS, weak Bluetooth whatsoever) which i can check before buy? I would really grateful for any advice!

    Thanks
    There are plenty phone checking apps on play store and they will help u to check everything
    Got following from t-shock
    Check the following:
    1. If the other guy has bought it over the official OnePlus site (very important)
    2. Check if the device has locked bootloader or not
    3. Check for scratches on the Camera
    4. Try pressing the screen a little bit hard to see if it has any flex or weird reaction (He may has changed the screen who knows???)
    5. General testing (FP, Calling ETC)

    If I have a rooted OP3 with TWRP, how should I install the latest updates? Will I have to install Xposed again and again each time I update?

    Yes each time you flash the stock OOS (update, same or older versions):

    1. Boot to TWRP
    2. Wipe dalvik and cache
    3. Flash full signed OOS zip
    4. Wipe dalvik and cache
    5. Flash SuperSU zip
    6. Wipe dalvik and cache
    7. Flash Xposed
    8. Wipe dalvik and cache
    9. Reboot and enjoy

    Not sure if wiping dalvik and cache between each step is necessary but better safe then sorry.

    Yes it is.
    It downloaded the file, rebooted in recovery and left me there. Suggestions?

    ---------- Post added at 02:02 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:27 PM ----------


    Yes it booted to TWRP (auto correct issue) and it's rooted.

    Official or Unofficial TWRP?

    Anyway you cannot flash OTA over the rooted firmware.

    Either you have to dirty flash 3.2.1 and flash the OTA on top of it or flash 3.2.2 full zip.
