I want to root my phone, but don't want any custom ROM and custom recoverys, and I also want to keep the possibility of OTA updates and also possibly keep my data. If that's not possible, I would like also to know how to backup my data accordingly. Do you have any ideas?
but do I have to install TWRP to root? if so, will I get OTA updates?You`ll have to unlock the bootloader first which will wipe your device completely. Your apps and Google info will be restored if you choose to install a cloud backup when setting up the phone. Pics, files and other media you can copy to your pc and put it back later.

On my OP5 i got unlocked my OP5 and installed TWP (18.104.22.168 the last official cheeseburger). I wiped full (internal storage too).
When i would like to mount with TWRP, my PC recognize the OP5, i can see the internal storage of the OP5 (my computer shows unknwow capacity) but i can't copy/paste a custom Rom or another file.
I can flash with fastboot command the OP5 etc. But no copy/paste. So my OP5 got only TWRP and fastboot mod. No Rom or another ZIP to flash.
I got that on 2 PC, one with vista and one with WIN 10.
Someone got idea?
If you can enter twrp, i think adb push will do fine.Ok thanks, i will try.
I see adb push or adb sideload.
EDIT: You need ADB, so you also need the SDK (although you *might* find only adb.exe and associated files here on XDA, which should be sufficient for this particular process, but I still recommend the SDK as it is quite handy).If you can enter twrp, i think adb push will do fine.
You welcome, any time!It works, with adb sideload.
After the end of 100%, i searched the zip (OOS 4.5.5 stock) on the phone in order to install but just reboot the phone and it's ok. The ROM was installed.
Thx very much bro.
I'm in a kinda curious situation:
Should I buy OP3T now or should I wait for fixies for OP5 and buy him?
Thanks in advance!
I couldn't seem to find this anywhere. I'm currently running Freedom rom, and whenever I open up the xda labs and tap "My Device", instead of taking me to the OnePlus 5 forums, it takes me to the One Plus One. Anyone know why this is happening?
Yes, super easy. Look in the Dev section for full install. Cliff notes:Hey.
Not new to xda. Been out of all the action for a couple of years and I'm returning with the one plus 5.
Does anyone know if I can unlock and root without screwing up Android pay? There's this Magisk thing I've read, but some tutorial on how to load it up on the one plus 5 would be nice.
Is it possible to keep root after updating your OS? i just updated to oxygenOS 4.5.4 (flashed it through zip on OP forums) and I lost my root and TWRP recovery.

I don't have a custom ROMHey, I have a question regarding rooting and OTAs! As far as I've understood, flashing a custom recovery and root after unlocking the bootloader breaks the OTAs and makes it a hassle to update your phone unless you're running a custom ROM, which im not planning to do just yet. My question is: is there a way to unlock the bootloader and root the device WITHOUT flashing a custom recovery, which (hopefully) wouldn't break OTA updates?
