Download OnePlus 7T Pro custom ROMs: LineageOS 17.1, Resurrection Remix, and more
One of the main reasons behind OnePlus’ popularity is the company’s stance towards the developer community. The company is known for its timely kernel source code releases and promotion of custom ROMs for EOL devices among other things, which makes it a fan favorite in the developer community. Thanks to this, third-party development for its last flagship, the OnePlus 7T Pro (review), took off to a great start. In our previous development update for the 7T Pro, we shared a couple of tools and custom kernels for the device.
However, due to the fact that the device launched with Android 10, which made dynamic partitions mandatory, there’s still no official or stable TWRP port for it yet. This has made development difficult because of the risks of getting the device soft bricked and losing data due to not having a full backup available. Regardless, some custom ROM developers have managed to port their work over to the OnePlus 7T Pro. Here’s a list of all the custom ROMs that you can download for your 7T Pro right now:
Unofficial LineageOS 17.1
An unofficial build of the popular LineageOS custom ROM based on Android 10 is now available for the OnePlus 7T Pro, allowing you to experience pure stock Android on the device without any of OnePlus’ additional features. Download the ROM from the forum post linked below and carefully follow the instructions given in the post to get it up and running on your device. Do note that while the thread hasn’t been updated in a while, the developers are still releasing new builds for the device.
Resurrection Remix is another popular Android 10-based ROM that’s now available for the OnePlus 7T. Unlike LineageOS, which aims to offer a stock Android experience, Resurrection Remix is chock full of customization options that you can use to completely transform your device. The ROM includes a mixed bag of features from other popular ROMs like LineageOS, SlimRoms, Omni ROM, and the original Remix ROM, which means that you can expect to find everything that you might need to customize your device.
If a stock Android experience or a ton of customizations aren’t top priority for you and you’d much rather go for a performance-focused ROM, then you should check out GlassROM for the OnePlus 7T Pro. The ROM features aggressive performance and battery optimizations that will help you make the most out of your device. Follow the instructions in the forum post linked below to flash the ROM on your device.
Along with these custom ROMs, developers have also released a modded version of the OxygenOS recovery with ADB enabled that you can use to access your OnePlus 7T Pro’s file system from recovery till a TWRP port is released for the device. It’s also worth noting that without TWRP, you’ll only be able to flash the aforementioned custom ROMs by using the fastboot method or using Lineage Recovery.
If you’ve been around the OnePlus modding community for awhile, then you’ve probably heard of blu_spark kernel before. It’s a custom kernel by developer eng.stk that offers a ton of tweaks and changes on top of the stock kernel. Just check out everything it does in the XDA forum thread link!
OmniROM is a popular AOSP-based custom ROM that’s been around for a long time. It focuses on stability while also offering a plethora of customization options. For the 7T Pro, it’s maintained by developers vache and maxwen. The XDA forum thread for the ROM isn’t up to date, but you can grab the latest release from their official site.
