    OnePlus 3 is launched on June 14th officially in a VR event. This is one of the best flagship phone to date with high-end hardware specs yet with a lower price tag. Here I am going to present the OnePLus 3 Bootloader Unlock guide for all your beloved OnePlus 3 phone. You need to have an unlocked bootloader if you want to install a custom recovery like TWRP or to install a custom ROM like CyanogenMod or any other Custom ROM like: Resurrection Remix ROM, Slim ROM or Paranoid Android ROM, Exodus ROM etc.

    DISCLAIMER:
    Unlocking the bootloader on OnePlus 3 may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup of your all data. Understand the fact that you are the only person responsible for everything that you do with you device.

    If you blame me for the disaster that happened to your device then I will simply laugh at you.
