GUIDE | Root Bootloader and Recovery Unlock Permissions on OnePlus One

If you are a OnePlus One owner and want to make the most of your device. In this guide I show you how:

  • Unlock the bootloader 
  • Obtain root permissions 
  • Install a custom recovery 


Fortunately, the modding operations we're going to make on Oneplus One are really simple: getting the root, unlocking the bootloader, and installing a modified recovery on Oneplus One are kids games. But let's see together how to do it as quickly and as easily as possible.


  • SDK super SLIM version Download
  • PC Windows
  • ClockWorkMod Recovery Package Download 
  • Or if you prefer, here is the Recovery TWRP package Download
  • SuperSU for the Root Download 



First we unblock the bootloader, but before proceeding ATTENTION: you're going to fully format the smartphone and its contents, so make a nice backup before proceeding.
What's more, do everything at your own risk and risk, taking responsibility for any damage caused to the smartphone.

  • Download the SDK
  • Copy it to the computer's hard drive C
  • Enter the Platform Tools folder
  • Press the Shift + right mouse button on the PC
  • Click Open Command Window Here
  • Turn on OnePlus One in FastMode by pressing Volume up + power
  • Type in the PC window: fastboot devices (Check that a number comes out)
  • Then type: fastboot oem unlock
  • Wait for the end of the procedure
  • Type: fastboot reboot
  • The phone will restart with a green robotic and reset the phone


Now we install the custom recovery:

  • Download the Recovery package
  • Turn on OnePlus One in FastMode by pressing Volume up + power
  • Click on the rayglobe_start.bat file
  • The procedure will start automatically and start the phone with ClockWorkMod
  • If you want to use TWRP, just download the .img file from the last link and replace the recovery.img with the TWRP image in the "Recovery Package"
  • Restart OnePlus One from Recovery


Now we're going to get Root permissions:

  • Once you have restarted your smartphone, connect it to your PC and copy the SuperSU file to your phone (any folder)
  • Restart OnePlus One in Recovery Mode (Volume Down + Power)
  • Click Install and look for the previously copied .zip file and install it.
  • The procedure will be successful and you will only need to restart OnePlus One for the last time.

Perfect! We ended up here, if you've come up here without losing your OnePlus One, you've got full control of your device now, giving you the crazy joy of modding. Because you now find yourself with a OnePlus One bootloader unlocking a custom recovery and root permissions.
