ROOT ONE PLUS 3

# ADB and Fastboot Installation

1. Download the ADB For Windows from here :- http://sh.st/KDnYu
              2. Run the .exe file downloaded from above as Administrator.
              3. Press 'Y' every time the installer asks for.
              4. Continue Driver Installation.


# Some Important Things 

  • Show File Extensions - Open a command prompt window and run "Control folders" (without the quotes). Go to the View tab and uncheck the "Hide extensions for known file types" option. This will help avoid confusion when renaming files.
  • Battery - Ensure that your phone has at least 60% battery remaining, and that your PC is plugged in and wont shut down spontaneously during the process. The procedure doesn't take very long , but its best to have enough charge in case something goes wrong.
  • Backup (Optional) - Unlocking the bootloader will/should completely wipe all data from the device. This includes apps, settings and even the contents of the internal sdcard (pictures, music, etc.). Copy all important files off the phone onto a PC or upload them to a cloud.
