One thing is for sure with the OnePlus brand, most of its consumer base are comprised of Android enthusiasts. Thanks to this factor, we always see strong third-party development support for OnePlus devices and seeing how quick root has been made available for OnePlus 7 Pro, we aren’t expecting any less for the brand’s latest flagship. Working with both OxygenOS (OOS) and HydrogenOS (H2OS), you can gain root on OnePlus 7 Pro through the steps below.
Why use Magisk to Gain Root on OnePlus 7 Pro?
For root, there are a couple of options you can choose from. However, the most reliable, secure and efficient still remains to be Magisk. All of these properties are integrated into Magisk by continuous testing of the app in various scenarios and devices. Further, Magisk follows a systemless approach. Simply put, Magisk doesn’t modify the system partition hence allowing for a more cleaner install which can be removed easily if need be.
Also, unique to Magisk, are the Magisk Modules which you can install and operate using Magisk Manager app. These modules add in functionality to your smartphone and also allow you to modify certain functions to your needs. As said previously, you wont be able to run these modules on any other root utility.
