Default Fastboot without volume buttons

Hey all. Ok. Got my Oneplus end of last week thanks to an invite from @playya here. After doing initial set up and allowing updates to install on phone, I quickly noticed the volume keys do not register. I am thinking it is a hardware issue and have submitted for RMA with OnePlus, but I have not even heard anything from them yet after 6 days.

I want to see if maybe it is just a ROM/software issue though and see if I can re-flash, but how can I even get into fastboot as volume down does not register at all. (Or volume up for that matter).

Fastboot is bootloader (correct me if I'm wrong).

Settings> Developer Options> check 'Advanced Reboot'

Derp....I think you may be right actually. Gonna have to see if that may do something to allow me to re-flash stock ROM and see if I can get it to work.

Oh well, I tried it. RE-installed an older version of CM11S to see if maybe it was an issue with 33R and my phone and still not response when pressing the volume keys. I am now pretty certain that the buttons are messed up and it is a hardware issue. Well, here's hoping I get some response sometime soon to my RMA request.

There is many people with your exact issue...this phone is so disappointing, it's such a Chinese pos. I wonder how so many guys are satisfied by it...thanks God I have no major hardware issues but if you look around over the community you will find that this thing is such an epic fail

I'm completely satisfied, not a single problem with mine, or my fiance's, or any of my friends' either. Why don't you sell it if you hate it so much? The problems are minor, and they affect a small quantity. It's always the unhappy people that speak the loudest, don't forget.

Just want to make sure people take in what he just said so I made it bold and enlarged it. No greater words have ever been spoken. If you don't realize that then you have already lost... Here let me repeat it for you

It's always the unhappy people that speak the loudest, don't forget.

Just like to say no issues on my end either.. Sorry @drmacrofish you got a bad one man. But they do get back to you. I had purchased a bad case and they gave me a refund. It took a few days but they do get back to you

Thanks all. Hopefully I will have something good to report and they, OnePlus, will get back to me and get things rectified. It really is an awesome phone otherwise. I am hoping I will be able to get a replacement and not have to go the refund route, but I guess we will see. For sure it is always the unhappy that speak out the most, so I am hoping there are a lot of others out there who had to RMA for replacement without issues, and that I will be one of them.

I'm just waiting for N6. I will swap this thing as soon as i will have the opt to buy a newer phone, this is not a moment to change. Summer is the worst period to buy a smartphone.
