OnePlus 6 McLaren Edition - Make OnePlus 6 look like OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition

OnePlus 6 is now 8 months old. And especially after the launch of OnePlus 6T, OnePlus 6 started looking dated. To give a new life to OnePlus 6, in this tutorial I will show you how you can make your OnePlus 6 to look like OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition.

Step 3: Installing OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition Boot Animation

Root access is required for installing OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition on OnePlus 6. I have already created an easy to follow video on how to unlock bootloader and root OnePlus 6 in case you don't already have root access on your phone. 
 
Assuming your OnePlus 6 is rooted, download OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition boot animation zip file. Open any file manager, I used Solid Explorer file manager, follow the below steps: 
  1. Rename the zip file "OnePlus6T_McLaren_bootanimation.zip" to "bootanimation.zip" and copy this zip file.
  2. Now go to root > system > media.
  3. Rename "bootanimation.zip" to "bootanimation-stock.zip".
  4. Paste the copied "bootanimation.zip" in step 1.
From now on, you will see the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition boot animation every time you will reboot your phone. If you want you can now remove root and lock bootloader. 

Step 4: Setup home screen just like a new OnePlus 6T

Follow the below steps to setup home screen layout just same as that on the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition:
  • First, set "OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition Wallpaper 5.png" as a wallpaper for home screen. Check step 1 on how to set wallpaper.
  • Long press an empty area on home screen to activate home screen customization menu. Select widgets.
  • Under widget, select Google 4x1 rounded search widget and place at the top of the home screen.
  • Under widget, select Clock 3x2 Digital clock widget. Resize the widget to make it look bigger.
  • Set phone, messages, chrome, camera and gallery shortcuts above the navigation bar.
  • Add Google search, Chrome, Gmail and Google Maps inside a folder named Google.
  • Add play store shortcut to the right, above navigation icons.
  • Finally, make sure the default icon pack is selected. To do that, long press an empty area on home screen to activate home screen customization menu. Select home settings and then icon pack. Make sure the icon pack selected is OnePlus.

Step 5: Change theme and accent colour

  The final step is to change the theme and accent colour. Follow the below steps:
