Benefits and Risk of Rooting Oppo devices

Rooting an Oppo smartphone opens the floodgates to a plethora of customizations. To begin with, you will now have access to the system partition. This in turn will allow you to make tweaks to the build,prop file, or change the default boot animation on your device. Likewise, you will now be in a position to install Magisk Modules, Substratum Themes, and Xposed Framework.

But on the flip side, rooting might also lead to a few issues. For example, the first step in rooting asks for an unlocked bootloader. Once you do so, the device’s warranty will become null and void. All the data will also be wiped. Furthermore, banking apps like Google Pay might not function correctly [FIX: How to Pass Magisk SafetyNet on Rooted Android].

Then the device’s WideVine L1 Certification will be degraded to L3 [FIX: How to Watch Netflix in HD on Rooted Devices ( Get Widevine L1 Support )].

If all these are well and good, then proceed ahead with the steps to root your Oppo device via Magisk without TWRP Recovery.

STEP 1: Unlock Bootloader on Oppo device

First and foremost, you will have to unlock the bootloader on your device. For that, please refer to our comprehensive guide on How to Unlock Bootloader on any Oppo Device. In short: you need to use the fastboot oem unlock command inside the CMD window with the device booted to Fastboot and connected to the PC via USB cable.

STEP 2: Download Oppo Stock Firmware

Next up download the Stock Firmware for your device. Oppo has hosted all the firmware on its official site, so download it from there only. Furthermore, you should download that version of stock firmware that is currently installed on your device. But why? Well, this is because we will be using the stock boot.img from this firmware to patch and then flash onto your device.

If the boot.img file’s version number doesn’t match with the current software build installed on your device, then it might lead to issues. This rule is applicable to all Android devices. So if you ever wish to root any of your devices using this method, then make sure to always follow this rule. With that said, once you have downloaded the Oppo firmware in OZIP format, proceed to the next step to extract it and then root your device via Magisk without TWRP.



STEP 3: Extract Oppo OZIP Stock Firmware

Nowadays, only a few OEMs uploads the firmware as a normal ZIP package. As an example, OnePlus uses the payload.bin format, Realme and Oppo follow OZIP, etc. The issue with these types of formats is the fact that they aren’t supported by popular extraction software such as WinZIP or WinRAR. But fret not.

Once the conversion is complete, it’s time to get the stock boot.img file and then root your Oppo device via Magisk without TWRP.

STEP 4: Get Oppo Stock Boot.img File

STEP 6: Flash magisk_patched boot.img and Root Oppo Device

  1. First off, download and install the Android SDK Platform Tools on your PC. These are the official ADB and Fastboot binary provided by Google. If you have any other third party ADB tool, I would suggest you switch over to this one.
  2. Now enable USB Debugging on your device. This is needed so that your PC recognizes your device in the ADB mode. But why do we need ADB mode? Well, this will be needed to boot your device to Fastboot Mode. So head over to Settings > About Phone > Tap on Build Number 7 times > Go back to Settings > System > Developer Options > Enable USB Debugging.
  3. When that is done, connect your device to the PC via USB cable.
  4. Now transfer the magisk_patched boot.img file from your device’s Download’s folder to your PC’s platform-tools folder.
  5. Likewise, inside the same platform-tools folder, type in CMD in its address bar and hit Enter. This will launch the Command prompt window.
