OnePlus X has been the most waited device of November and as it has been released now, we present to you the rooting process for it. It’s a simple process. All you need is the SuperSU file in your device’s internal storage and a custom recovery installed. Though SuperSU v2.56 is available for download, this version is meant for the Marshmallow ROMS and is experimental. Since the device runs on the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware, the stable v2.46 should root it easily.
Here is a simple tutorial that will root your OnePlus X with the unofficial TWRP recovery available for the device. Before you proceed, make sure you have setup TWRP. Through this custom recovery, you will need to flash the SuperSU file and you will have root once you boot into system. So let’s begin with the tutorial.
