There are various things that make up an operating system. In any operating system, one of the most critical parts is powering on the machine. During this process, the computer will execute a small program in read-only memory (ROM) to begin initiating the startup process. This small program is known by many names, but most often called a boot loader. In almost every Linux distribution, including Fedora, GRUB2 (or GRand Unified Bootloader 2) is the default boot loader. Even though it is a critical piece of the operating system, many people aren’t aware of the boot loader, all that goes into it, or how it can be customized.

It was earlier this month when a report suggested that OnePlus is working on a new variant of its flagship device – the OnePlus 3. Even while earlier reports suggested that the phone might be called the OnePlus 3 Plus or the OnePlus 3s, but a recent post made by a OnePlus designer on Weibo suggests that the phone might be called the OnePlus 3T.
There has been no official information that OnePlus is even working on a new variant of the phone. OnePlus has said in the past that they will be launching just one flagship device in a year, but according to a GizmoChina report, the company is facing a huge backlog of OnePlus 3 orders that they have been unable to fulfill because of a shortage in supply of AMOLED displays. The report had added that the new version of the phone might feature an LCD panel display instead.
