TWRP has been a given thing when it comes to tinkering around stuff like custom ROMs, kernels, and modifications of devices. In the world of custom recovery, TWRP is something, which a user can’t ignore. OnePlus 6 users were getting quite anxious about the support for TWRP recovery for the device. Now recently, along with a couple of other devices, OnePlus 6 finally get fully functional TWRP recovery available for it.
So, it’d be better to get on with the full procedure of how to install the TWRP without any further ado.
Before we get on with the whole process, make sure that you are completely familiar with what you’re going to do with your device. Otherwise, you can probably end up completely damaging your device, and for that, we won’t be held responsible.
Make sure to install these following things before installing TWRP.
- Install ADB and Fastboot driver on your PC.
- Unlock the bootloader of your device.
Instructions for installing TWRP on your OnePlus 6
- First, you need to have an unlocked bootloader of your device.
- Download the required files,
TWRP IMG file: twrp-3.2.1-0-enchilada.img
TWRP ZIP file: twrp-installer-enchilada-3.2.1-0.zip
Magisk file for root: Magisk 16.4.zip
DM verity disabler: no-verity-opt-encrypt-6.0.zip
- Now, power off your device.
- Hold Volume Up + Power buttons to boot into bootloader.
- Now connect your device to your PC using the USB cable that you got with the device.
- Transfer all the files such as TWRP ZIP file, Magisk ZIP file, and the DM verity disabler file to your device. And make sure it stays connected.
- Make sure you already enabled the USB Debugging from the developer settings of your device.
- You can also rename the TWRP IMG file on the PC to twrp-3213.img which becomes a little more easy to type the command to install it later. And make sure TWRP file is also present on the PC.
- Now open up the command prompt
- Navigate to the folder where you have the TWRP file, twrp.img is located and perform
fastboot boot twrp-3.2.1-0-enchilada.img
- Now install the TWRP recovery temporarily and boot it for once by running the command below.
fastboot boot twrp-3213.img
- And now to install the TWRP permanently, navigate to the install section and select the twrp-installer-enchilada-3.2.1-0.zip was already downloaded earlier.
- If you previously rooted the device with Magisk, then flash Magisk again now (Optional)
This completes the whole process of TWRP installation on your device. However, it is worth to note that currently, MTP support is disabled in TWRP as it causes a kernel panic with the stock kernel which might probably be fixed in future updates.
