How to Extract OnePlus OFP Firmware File

In this guide, we will show you the steps to extract the OnePlus OFP firmware file. Different OEMs provide their firmware under different packages. For example, Google has it under ZIP, LG as KDZ, Xiaomi Fastboot ROM as TGZ/, Realme OFP, and Oppo as OZIP. However, with OnePlus things are a tad bit challenging. Earlier, their stock firmware was under the payload.bin format. However, the Chinese OEM is now unifying its code and merging OxygenOS with ColorOS.

Hence, there’s every chance you might come across their firmware in the OFP format [apart from the OPS firmware that is flashed via MSM Tool to unbrick your device]. So what’s the fuss all about. Well, the challenging part arises for the tech enthusiast who wishes to get hold of the firmware’s individual partition files. They could use these files to manually flash the firmware via fastboot commands, or use a single file like the boot.img file to patch it via Magisk and flash it via Fastboot to obtain root.

Likewise, they could use the vbmeta file to disable verification/verity checks and carry out tons of other related tasks. However, you wouldn’t be able to extract this file format via WinRAR/7ZIP, etc. Rather you will need to take the help of Python and a few lines of commands. And in this guide, we will help you with just that. Given hereby are the steps to extract the OnePlus OFP firmware file. Follow along.
