I am in trouble- I really don't want to lose this phone. It's been 3 months since I bought this phone and got it updated to Lolipop which was a pain. I decided to downgrade it and flashed my OPO without unlocking bootloader(forgot to unlock it). Now its sitting at boot screen and nothing is happening!! I could boot the device only in fast boot mode and nothing happens if I flash it again!! No recovery options and device is not showing up in adb device list! Please suggest how to fix it. Do I take it to service center? Does it help? I really really want this phone back online...
See bro, adb is only possible when ur device is working alright. Since it's not switching on, it won't show ur device in adb devices.
Now the thing is u want to get it back on to stock, so u must have to unlock the bootloader in order to downgrade the device or even if u want to upgrade in future. So first unlock the bootloader of device, flash the required files and then boot it. There is no need to worry bout the device no booting since device is fully locked and nothing can make changes to system. So don't panic and keep the process steady.
Report back if its successful or not. Will try to help more.
If u're not enough confident, take it to service centre. But they sucks in my opinion.
