Bootloop after Reinstalling & Updating SuperSU

    Hey Everyone,

    (Device: OnePlus 3
    Android: 8.0.0)

    today i tried to uninstall SuperSU manually (yeah, this was not the right way) to make way for magisk - my banking app isn´t working anymore so i tried to hide the root from it. I read some article on the internet that i have to uninstall supersu before i can use magisk - made sense to me, because you only need one for rooted devices. I did the uninstall, but i wasn´t still able to install magisk. So i reinstalled SuperSU.

    After the Reinstallation the App asked me to update the App and reboot - for sure, lets do this.


    the last two hours i tried to figure out how to solve the bootloop. I´m able to get into twrp (3.3.1) and the connection with my PC is stable, i can see all the data. First of all, I installed the Supersu 2.82 zip because i thought its that simple, but it didn´t worked. So i installed the Supersu 2.79 to get back to the start. Bootloop is still there. At last I did the factory reset wipe (data, cache and dalvik) and tried again to install the supersu 2.79 version. Still Bootloop.

    Last chance i see is the mega unbrick guide for OP3 (https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/...vXbYndoY0-3df5FZcf2s-S9nsZ__0Ek-uPTdq4Fs8Oy5s) but i prefer another way, because the device isn´t completly damaged (i think....)

    It would be great to know some way to stop the loop! Thanks in Advance.

    since you have twrp still just either restore a nandroid backup or flash a custom rom......just remember as long as you have access to your custom recovery (twrp) all is not lost,

    hopefully you have made a nandroid backup........that is.

    Sorry to hear you are having problems.

    As you have TWRP custom recovery installed, hopefully, you have a nandroid backup you could install in TWRP Restore. Failing that, you could flash the stock OxygenOS firmware using ADB. Alternatively, you can, as you have mentioned, use the OnePlus brick tool which, for some, is easier that flashing via ADB.

    Thank you all for the fast response! It really helped me out.

    Unfortunatly i made no backup... but that´s something i won´t miss in the future. So i tried to flash the latest OxygenOS for Android 8.0.0 (5.0.8) and it worked. The Installation took some time and i thought i´m back in the boot loop, but it finally started into the introduction screen - the device has been completly wiped out through the flash. Luckily i saved the most important things before.

    Does somebody know what exactly happened within the phone? I´m just wondering because i don´t think it was the update of SuperSU, i guess it was my unwise decision to uninstall the app and reinstall - that damaged the SU binary... but its just my own explanation.

    Thank you again!
