How to Install TWRP Recovery on OnePlus 11

In this guide, we will show you the steps to install the TWRP Recovery onto your OnePlus 11. Back in the day, OnePlus used to be the tech enthusiasts’ favorite toy, however, all that changed for the worse ever since it got under the hands of Oppo. However, after a few rough patches, there seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel, at least for the eleventh iteration.

After the device got blessed with an MSM Download Tool, a few AOSP custom ROMs made their way, and now we even have a working custom recovery in hand. So you could easily flash custom binaries, wipe data from numerous partitions, and most importantly, take a Nandroid backup. So without further ado, let’s make you aware of the steps to install the TWRP Recovery onto your OnePlus 11.

Before starting, please take a backup of all the data on your device, just to be on the safer side. Droidwin and its members wouldn’t be held responsible in case of a thermonuclear war, your alarm doesn’t wake you up, or if anything happens to your device and data by performing the below steps.

STEP 1: Install Android SDK

install adb platform tools windows

First and foremost, you will have to install the Android SDK Platform Tools on your PC. This is the official ADB and Fastboot binary provided by Google and is the only recommended one. So download it and then extract it to any convenient location on your PC. Doing so will give you the platform-tools folder, which will be used throughout this guide to install the TWRP Recovery on OnePlus 11.

STEP 2: Enable USB Debugging and OEM Unlocking

Next up, you will also have to enable USB Debugging and OEM Unlocking on your device. The former will make your device recognizable by the PC in ADB mode. This will then allow you to boot your device to Fastboot Mode. On the other hand, OEM Unlocking is required to carry out the bootloader unlocking.

  • Since that is a fairly new post – I have it a go yesterday and here I am reporting.
    TWRP actually works! I did root using flashable magisk26.3.zip through the recovery and it did the magic. FYI I used TWRP-3.7.0-salami-13-09-23.img.
    The only remark is that using the latest Platform Tools (Adb & Fastboot) couldn’t properly execute the command “fastboot flash recovery_ab twrp.img”
    Instead, I did first:
    fastboot flash recovery_a twrp.img
    fastboot flash recovery_b twrp.img
    Then rebooted into recovery and it was all good. Rebooting into system worked too.

  • I cannot see any files in TWRP and it requires a password to decrypt. It does not however accept any password I try so now I am stuck.

  • Hello, is there already a reliable method to install TWRP on Oneplus 11?
