Default Re: [OnePlus 3] How to Unlock Bootloader, Flash TWRP, Root, OS

4. Rooting

Now that your phone has an unlocked bootloader and a custom recovery installed, you have two options to gain root (Pick one or the other. You don't need to do both. ).

Option A) Flash SuperSU binaries which will give you root with the stock ROM
Confirm that you have downloaded the SuperSU zip from the downloads section above. Connect OP3 to PC and send SuperSU to your phone.
Turn the phone off. Then boot into recovery mode by holding volume down + power. Leave the phone at the main screen of the custom recovery for now.
Install > browse to SuperSU zip and select it
Swipe to confirm the installation. Then reboot.

Option B) Flash a custom rom which will come pre-rooted
Note that not all custom roms will be pre rooted, however the majority of them are. Read the OP of the ROM thread to see what the verdict is.
Copy a custom rom (you can find these in the OnePlus 3 ROMs, Kernels, Recoveries, & Other Development section of XDA or Custom OP3 Software section on OnePlus Forums) onto the phone (remember the location of where you copy it to)
Turn the phone off then boot into recovery mode by holding volume down + power. To install a custom ROM the general procedure to follow is: wipe Dalvik + System + Data + Cache, flash ROM, flash GApps.
Wipe > Advanced Wipe > Select Dalvik + System + Data + Cache > Swipe to Wipe
Install > browse to the location where you previously copied the ROM zip and select it > Swipe to confirm the installation
Install GApps using same process as ROM, then reboot.

Keep in mind that the first boot after installing a custom ROM & wiping the phone may take longer than usual, as the phone will need to rebuild the dalvik cache and initialize other first boot stuff.

Congrats! That is all! Your phone now has an unlocked bootloader, a custom recovery installed and is rooted. Enjoy !

The very first thing we highly recommend you to do now is to take EFS Backup and save it at your cloud and PC. It is very very important.
