How to Root OnePlus One!

For those of you who want to root your OnePlus One (Why root?  See Why Root Android?) to run rooted apps or want to install a custom ROM, here’s a step-by-step tutorial guide you can follow for all Windows, Mac, and Linux computers. Rooting the OnePlus One requires the user to unlock the bootloader.  Unlocking bootloader will ERASE EVERYTHING ON YOUR PHONE, so make a backup of everything including your personal photos, videos, etc beforehand!  YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!!! Will rooting OnePlus One void my warranty?  Technically yes, but you can unroot/unbrick completely back to 100% stock so you can always unvoid warranty. So, if you have a Window, Mac OS X, or Linux (like Ubuntu) computer, let’s go ahead and root this bad boy! Before we begin, you can also download all the files you need here for all Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux/Ubuntu: Download:
