So you now have the option to carry out a plethora of tweaks on your OnePlus Ace 2 Pro, including the ability to flash TWRP and gain administrative privileges by rooting your device via Magisk. This in turn will open the floodgates to welcome abode tons of modules and customizations. So without any further ado, let’s get started with the installation steps right away.

Benefits and Risks of Root and TWRP
