How to Root OnePlus 3 OxygenOS 4.0 Nougat [Fix SIM Card not Detected]

Did you just update to OnePlus 3 OxygenOS 4.0? And now want to root OnePlus 3 OxygenOS 4.0? If yes, then you are on the right page.

I just downloaded OxygenOS 4.0 on my OnePlus 3 and I had to struggle a little bit while rooting OnePlus 3 OxygenOS 4.0 Nougat.

The superSU zip I found on xda to root OnePlus 3 OxygenOS 4.0 was giving me problems. My OnePlus 3 was not detecting any of my sim card. I tried different variations, stock recovery, different twrp, formating completely and what else. But it didn’t fix the problem.

I later realized the problem was happening only after flashing that particular superSU zip. And finally I found a suitable zip and got my Oneplus 3 OxygenOS 4.0 to root successfully. Find the steps that I used to root my OnePlus 3 below:
