OnePlus has really stepped into the limelight as the OEM for tinkerers following the demise of the Nexus program. One of the few manufacturers to let you keep your warranty if you unlock the bootloader and flash custom ROMs, the brand spanking new OnePlus 3T now has another feather in its modding cap: TWRP support.
TWRP 3.0.2-0 is now available on XDA Developers for the OnePlus 3T, opening up a world of possibilities for the flash-prone. A custom recovery is your gateway to all manner of fun new stuff, including flashable zips, new custom ROMs, root, advanced backups and much more.
You’ll need an unlocked bootloader before you can install TWRP though, a process that will wipe your device. So be sure to do a full backup before going ahead. As usual, be sure to read up on the documentation if you’re at all unsure about the process and cast an eye through the XDA thread for any issues or bugs.
Note that the OnePlus 3T stock boot image has dm-verity, which means you won’t be able to boot if you swipe to enable system modifications. That aside, anyone interested in flashing TWRP on their shiny new OnePlus 3T can head to XDA Developers to grab the recovery and instructions on how to do it if you’re not already familiar.
Will you flash TWRP on your OnePlus 3T? What’s the first thing you’ll use it for?
