The time is finally here, the day you’ve been eagerly anticipating, you can now unlock the bootloader on your Sprint OnePlus 7 Pro 5G (GM1925)!

*NOTE: UNLOCKING THE BOOTLOADER ON THIS PHONE WILL PREVENT YOU FROM INSTALLING FUTURE UPDATES VIA OTA, MEANING THEY'LL NEED TO BE FLASHED WITH FASTBOOT OR YOU'LL NEED TO REFLASH STOCK AND RELOCK THE BOOTLOADER TO UPDATE.*.





THERE IS NOT A FEE FOR UNLOCKING THE BOOTLOADER, THE PART OF THIS THAT COSTS MONEY IS THE SHIPPING, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE, THAT IS WELCOME AS WELL.


Starting now, you can place a request for bootloader unlock via this MAIL-IN service:


  • YOUR DEVICE WILL BE WIPED DURING THE UNLOCK
  • YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR INSURING YOUR DEVICE DURING TRANSIT, IF YOU DO NOT PAY FOR INSURANCE AND ANYTHING HAPPENS TO YOUR PHONE DURING SHIPMENT, THATS ON YOU, EVEN WHEN INSURED, WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY REPLACEMENTS OR REPAIRS!
  • THIS SERVICE IS MAIL IN ONLY, PROCESS IS AS FOLLOWS:
  • You (the customer) will pay for shipping to the address of the servicer and will send return postage via PayPal before sending us your phone.
  • You are responsible for insuring the package, if you do not insure the package, and something happens, you will be out of luck, as it’s not our responsibility to replace or repair your phone if it gets lost in transit.
  • This is a one-time service, meaning that once your bootloader is unlocked and you have received your device back, if you re-lock the bootloader for ANY reason (THIS INCLUDES FLASHING STOCK FIRMWARE WITH MSMDOWNLOADTOOL), You must submit a new request and re-do the mail in process at your own expenditure.

    Request will be processed on an individual basis, once we receive your request we will ask you for your:

  • Full Name
  • IMEI
  • Address for return shipping
  • Phone Number to contact you if necessary.

After receiving the device, we will flash the latest firmware and unlock the bootloader, requests will be shipped back out at the end of the week we receive the phone, or potentially sooner depending on the volume of requests.


TO MAKE A REQUEST, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT ON THIS THREAD AND SEND AN EMAIL TO
:
[email protected]


We will then direct you where to ship your device, and give you an estimate of return shipping, which will need to be sent via PayPal BEFORE sending us your device.




We will reply to your request via e-mail and collect your personal information from there as well.



The mail-in method is now discontinued due to a more recent development, we (the group of us who have been testing different ways to unlock) have acquired an MSM tool that will allow unlocking the bootloader on the Sprint model without any need to mail it in or even do a remote session!

HOW-TO UNLOCK:

  1. Make sure you have the latest adb/fastboot binary installed and your driver's are fully up to date.
  2. Download the unlocking MSMDownloadTool from here: View attachment guacamoles_unlock.zip
  3. Reboot to EDL mode (Volume Up+Volume Down+USB)
  4. Allow the MSMTool to run to completion, BUT STAY ALERT!
  5. As soon as the MSMTool finishes, it will reboot the phone, DO NOT ALLOW IT TO BOOT TO THE SYSTEM, INTERRUPT THE REBOOT BY ENTERING FASTBOOT
  6. Immediately run "fastboot flashing unlock"
  7. You should now have an unlocked bootloader!

IF YOU ARE ON SLOT B, YOU MAY GET STUCK IN FASTBOOT, TO FIX THIS FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • fastboot --set-active=other
  • fastboot reboot-bootloader
  • fastboot --set-active=other (again)
  • fastboot boot twrp.img

    TWRP for Q (10)
  • Once in twrp, format data again, and then try to reboot.

Install TWRP/Magisk:

TWRP for Q (10)

TWRP for Pie (9)

TWRP Installer zip

Magisk Installer



  • * Copy the TWRP img to your adb directory and run:
Code:
fastboot boot twrp-3.3.1-79-guacamole-unified-Q-mauronofrio.img
  • * Or for Pie:
Code:
fastboot boot twrp-3.3.1-4-guacamole.img

  • * Copy the installation zips to your storage

    * Flash twrp-3.3.1-79-guacamole-unified-installer-mauronofrio.zip

    * Flash Magisk-v20.4.zip

    * Reboot


HAPPY FLASHING!

Edit: This reply was made when it was a mail-in service. You can disregard now.

Uhh, I know this is posted by a senior member and all, but this seems super sketchy to me... Why is there any need to send it in? Do you not want your code public as of rn? Do you need specialized hardware to do it? A little explanation in that area would be nice...

Exactly that, the developer of the tool that is being used does not want the code public as of right now, but has authorized us to perform unlocks for those willing to ship their device.

Hmm... Alright, that's understandable I suppose. As for everyone else I would just proceed with caution till we have a couple confirmed success stories on here. No offense to you @Whoareyou, but I've seen this type of thing before to where many people ended up having their devices stolen because of fake mail-in services. Either way tho, fairly excited to know there's at least some possibility of a bootloader unlock! :p

Totally understand your hesitation, I'd be wary too, hopefully a few will take the plunge so some trust can be formed here.

Would it be possible to offer this service remotely with a tool such as USB Redirector? I work with a handful of companies who do all sorts of firmware flashing and unlocks using this tool and I've rarely had issues with it. It might be a bit more hassle given that both you and the "customer" have to be online and connected at the same time (though easily mitigated with Discord or another IM service) but it eliminates the liability of a phone being lost or stolen and people won't be without their phones for days at a time.

We explored that route, unfortunately the delay is too long for the tool to work, we were able to connect to the phone to the tool but it fails to work with a timeout error from the tool and the phone reboots with no changes.

I can also confirm that this works. I can also confirm that the reason be for the mail in, because the Author of the said tool, does not want it released to public, We are looking for other
avenues to make this process faster and much easier without having to mail in or release said tools.

yea.. sending phone to a stranger to unlock bl bcuz they dont want to share publicly means they have a business and want to make $$$ lol

its a shame

Not sure where you're getting that implication, but the service is free, you just have to pay for shipping.

Again, I didn't write this tool, I simply have been given permission by the person who did to offer mail in unlocks since I have the free time to dedicate to it.

They have requested it not be made public, therefore it's not my place to release the tool, I can however, offer mail in unlocks, as that doesn't expose the exact method and has been green-lit by the creator.

If you have a problem paying for shipping, or are uncomfortable with your device being mailed to a stranger, I fully understand that, you don't have to take advantage of the service or you can wait until a remote method potentially becomes available, but don't display your discomfort as negativity with unwarranted accusations.

I'm just trying to help people get unlocked and spur some development for this phone.

    Can someone explain to me how i installl twrp on this phone?

    I'm newb-ish at this stuff but I'll try to break down what I did to achieve OEM unlock and getting Magisk and TWRP installed.
    I followed OP's instructions but got hung up on some parts mainly because I got confused about the Fastboot boot loop section.

    First, download the required files and programs if you haven't already. OP has already listed most of them in the instructions.

    You'll need:
    the MSM Tool (guacamoles_unlock.zip);
    the TWRP img file (twrp-3.3.1-75-guacamole-unified-Pie-mauronofrio.img);
    and the ADB and Fastboot command tools
    -(I downloaded a pre-made .bat script, which should search for and install the latest version)
    [https:// github .com/fawazahmed0/Latest-adb-fastboot-installer-for-windows].

    Also, if desired, the latest Magisk files (https:// github .com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases)
    Magisk v20.3
    Magisk Manager v7.5.1

    Extract and have open / Install the files necessary.
    First I installed the OnePlus drivers (the one that pops up when connect phone to USB to transfer files).
    Have ADB and Fastboot installed (to verify if installed, open a command prompt anywhere as administrator and type ADB or Fastboot)
    -If you see a bunch of commands listed then it should be installed correctly.
    Have TWRP file ready (I renamed "twrp-3.3.1-75-guacamole-unified-Pie-mauronofrio.img" to "twrp.img" and copied directly to root C:\)

    Power off phone completely, disconnect from USB or PC if it isn't already.

    Open MSM Tool.
    Hold Vol Up+ and Vol- buttons together and connect to PC USB.
    MSM Tool should detect and show connected device.
    Run Start in MSM Tool. It will initiate and process, should only take a few seconds.

    As soon as it has finished processing the phone will auto restart.
    Quickly disconnect phone from USB then hold Vol Up+ and Vol Down- and Power buttons.
    This should take you to Fastboot mode and should be done before the phone has a chance to boot into normal system mode.

    If done correctly and Fastboot mode is achieved, plug phone back into PC USB.
    Open a command prompt anywhere as administrator (unsure if necessary).
    To check if phone is detected in Fastboot mode, type Fastboot Devices to see if the phone serial shows.
    If connected and detected properly, run Fastboot OEM Unlock command (Flashing Unlock didn't work for me for some reason).
    If successful, follow direction on phone to apply OEM Unlock.

    I then let phone restart as normal which should bring you to startup screen to initiate factory reset conditions.
    I set up everything again just like new out of box and plugged phone to PC USB then transferred "twrp-3.3.1-75-guacamole-unified-Pie-mauronofrio.img" and Magisk files to phone storage.

    Power off phone completely disconnect, then boot into Fastboot mode again (Vol+/Vol- / Power btn then plug to USB).
    In command prompt go to c: directory ("cd c:" or just "c:" and enter); then "fastboot boot twrp.img"

    This should boot you into temporary TWRP. From there go to settings and flash ramboot image, choose twrp-3.3.1-75-guacamole-unified-Pie-mauronofrio.img or twrp.img (if copied renamed file). This should install TWRP now without having to enter Fastboot and commands.

    From there I reboot back into recovery to make sure TWRP is installed and working, then I flash Magisk zip and then reboot normally into system.

    Hope this helps.

    Any update on possibility of remote services. I hate that this OnePlus is so tight because of Sprint.

    UPDATE 02/13/2020:

    THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ENTRUSTED ME WITH YOUR PHONES!

    I hope you are satisfied with the bootloader unlock,

    now for the bittersweet news to all who mailed in:

    SELF UNLOCKS ARE NOW AVAILABLE (SEE OP)

    We weren't expecting a self unlock method to become available so soon, but here it is y'all!

    :D

    Hahaha you still have no proper twrp and roms and I highly doubt this will change that....
    TWRP is already unified for the 5G variant and works fine,
