How to Install Lineage OS 14.1 based Resurrection Remix 5.8.3 for OnePlus 5?

The installation procedure is simple. However, there are certain things to be noted here. As the RR ROM is at initial builds, it does not work on encrypted devices. You will need to flash the Decrypt zip first. Moreover, OnePlus 5 file system is based on Ext4 so its better keep that way.

At the end, you can either root device using SuperSU or Magisk Manager.

  • Make sure your OnePlus 5 is rooted with latest TWRP recovery.
  • Decryption is important with this build. Hence, flash the Decrypt OnePlus 5 zip via TWRP first.
  • Download all the files from above like RR ROM, SuperSU/Magisk, Gapps, etc.
  • Reboot back into TWRP recovery.
  • Take a  full Nandroid backup.
  • Now, Wipe the system, data, cache. NOT storage!
  • Go home and flash latest RR ROM followed by Gapps and SuperSU/Magisk.
  • Reboot to system.

That’s it. First boot may take some time. If something goes wrong, restore the backup. You may revert back to Oxygen OS or H2OS going through the same procedure, except flashing Gapps.
