The latest flagship from OnePlus, the OnePlus 6, is a true powerhouse, and it’s finally starting to reach the hands of developers. Custom development for OnePlus devices has always been stellar: Just look at the activity on our OnePlus 3/3T and OnePlus 5/5T forums to see what we’re talking about. We don’t expect anything different from the new OnePlus 6 which, by the way, is both OnePlus’ first phone with Project Treble compatibility and their first phone with A/B partitioning for seamless updates. If you now have your OnePlus 6 in your hands and you want to start tinkering with it, an initial, unofficial TWRP build is now available for the device, meaning that you can now root your phone with Magisk and, in the future, install custom ROMs.
If you are interested in trying out TWRP for your device and root it, be sure to head over to the forum thread linked below. Keep in mind that you’ll first need to unlock the bootloader of your device, which shouldn’t take very long but does require a full data wipe so be sure to do it as soon as you can otherwise the transition from stock to unlocked will be painful!
