    How to Root OnePlus One with TWRP Recovery

    OnePlus One is a high end Smartphone that provide you a amazing 5.5inch full hd display on the screen. This phone falls in the category of phablet where you are having a rich screen with smooth touch support. The phone is powered by a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU and has 3GB ram. It is further supported by Adreno 330 GPU. Overall hardware of this mobile phone is amazing where you get really good app and game output. The phone performance is also not bad at all. For camera the device comes with dual support. That means there is a 13MP rear camera and 5Mp front camera which is more than enough to take amazing photos.

    In this guide today, I am going to show you a detailed process through which you can root the phone and install custom TWRP recovery. This custom recover will further help you to install more custom rom on the phone. There are ample of good benefits when it comes to rooting. Because here you are having a unlocked bootloader. You can run different rom and improve your phone output. but remember at the sometime when you root you almost lose your phone warranty. So move ahead on your own risk.


    • The first thing I want to repeat here is that after rooting you will loose your phone warranty. You might not receive future OTA updates also.
    • Always backup your entire phone data before rooting. Because most of the time the device is bricked and you are unable to get appropriate output. So copy everything.
    • Update your system with latest usb drivers for OnePlus One.
    • Go in the settings, developer options and then enable usb debugging.
    • Charge your phone to maximum before moving ahead. There must be more than 50% battery in the device.
    • Download Android SDK and Setup ADB on your Windows pc. Without this you cannot move ahead. If you dont know how to setup ADB, check this tutorial.
    • Download TWRP Recovery file from this page and save it on your desktop.
    • Download SuperSU zip file.
    • Remember once you had rooted you cannot restore the old settings back again. You cannot unroot the phone back.

    Installing TWRP Custom Recovery on OnePlus One:

    • Before moving ahead just check once that you had installing Android SDK and setup Android ADB on your system. We are going to use the command line utility here.
    • Now keep the openrecovery-twrp- file in the same folder where you had keep Android SDK. You have to look for platform-tools folder here and move the file in that. Rename the file to recovery.image.
    • Now go in the android sdk folder and hold shift and then right click. Click on cmd.
    • Check once that you had enabled usb debugging and then connect the phone to pc.
    • In cmd type adb reboot bootloader and hit enter.
    • The device will reboot and start in bootloader mode.
    • Now to flash the rom type fastboot flash recovery recovery.img and hit enter.
    • Once done type fastboot reboot and hit enter.
    • Wait back. Once done hold the volume down + power to get in the TWRP Recovery.
