In for $100 USD. Without a way to restore the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren 5G, I don't expect many developers to pick up the device. My $100 will be paid out to either a way to restore the STOCK T-Mobile firmware, OR a global image. As long as it is done via the MSM download tool.

Apparently, there are Windows tools to decrypt an .ops file, but I haven't seen any via brief Google search to encrypt/create; maybe there's something on XDA related to creation. T-Mobile and/or OnePlus should release a restore to stock T-Mobile MSM image on XDA for the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren. It seems like it could only benefit both companies to release it here. Not on their website because it's not for your average user, but on XDA only makes life easier for everyone.

I know you've asked OnePlus already, but maybe you'd have more luck asking T-Mobile because OnePlus is probably seeing it as the ball is more in T-Mobile's court, so-to-speak?

I have very bad news for you T-Mobile customers that have a OnePlus Device.. and yes I am one too..

OnePlus Rather youbuy direct from them, then from Carrier, OnePlus has Crippled the carrier edition of all their OnePlus Devices starting with the 7 Series.....
They have a MSMDownload Tool, that is now coded to each and every device it has.. meaning, if you have a T-mo edition, you will not be able to use the
msmdownload tool that has global edition, and you cant bypass that with a hex edit of the ops file anymore..
and you cant edit the msmdownload tool, because its VMP Protected, meaning unless you can unpack that VMP and restore all the imports
you will not be able to hex edit that..........

the newer MSMDownload tools check project code, which is located in a few places on your device.. but the place it checks against is
in eprom, No way to get around that.. and fastbootD which is the current way to convert. Will no longer be available to use anymore soon as well
,as OP has patched that too....... also, News is that Qualcomm is now implanting a new security method that will write protect your device.. and the only
way to bypass that is with a susyq cable and or taking apart your device and turning a switch. then flashing a developers edition OS.. So good luck with that too..
that prob wont be out for another 5 years total.... but soon all android devices will be Fully locked Down do to that.............................. This is already been implanted into chromebooks (newer)..

also, if you happen to get the ops file. well thats encrypted as well.. and because of the vmp protected msmdownload tool, the old public way to get your hands
on the loader from the ops file is no longer possible............

pretty much the only way to convert to global is by extracting OPS, then flashing partitions manually using loader......

But there is a catch there too, Oneplus is the only idiot to protect its FireHose Loader, you can read but you cant write with it.. So no matter if you had their loader extracted. you will still run into the next issue
of flashing each partition because it will fail.. Why will it fail, because OP write Protected it, you need a Demecia token and then you need another Project token... so in all you need
about 520 chars total of tokens.. good luck on that too................ Just to flash a partition to the device...........


some might ask how do I know all this, Lets just just say, I know people..............

But remember, OP has managed to encrypt everything to try and keep you carrier peepz from converting to global............

I personally think OnePlus is a jacka** company that will sell the global and carrier edition of their device for the same crazy price, but well know that the carrier editions are crippled
and nowhere near the global standard way........ Its unfair that OP took the time to lock us carrier peepz from converting.. just because they want us to buy direct and not from carrier.............

This 7 Pro that I have.. will most likely be the last OnePlus device I buy. and I know about 20 other people that refuse to buy another OnePlus device on the account they are locking people
out from a so called Developer friendly device.. OnePlus lies............................................ I have 200% Proof on everything I have said above.. if you need me to do a screen record to prove it further I will.

as for ways around said issues above, It can be done.. but the way it can be done is not public use.. and I have no permission or right to release said way............
I dont care how much money is offered, Its not in my place to release such info... But again, I dont even care about Oneplus devices anymore.. OP has shown their true colors now..
and again, Most likely will never buy another OnePlus Device again.........................


OnePlus, I know you read this, Hope you prove that you can be just as fair to carrier editions as you are with global editions.. cause I have a feeling all carrier editions will soon fail you..
because nobody is going to pay that kinda money for a crippled device that they cant convert.. you can pay nearly the same amount for the pixel 4 XL, and its not crippled in any way..
its pure vanilla Android OS....................... Guess you can figure out where I might go next........................... (waiting for Pixel 5) ...................


Please Dont message me with crazy questions and so on.. I will ignore all.. I barely use XDA.. someone posted this in my channel and I just wanted to check it out.................
only true way to reach me is on Telegram.. same nick as here...................


Good luck all...

That's a nice write-up but one question: How did the regular T-Mobile OnePlus 7T conversion work? Was that the v4 tool? Did the v5 tool stop this?

These measures are absolutely devastating to anyone who wants to test open betas and developer previews. What's the point of an unlocked bootloader for the McLaren 5G if you can do next to nothing with it and there's no rescue method.

With a Pixel, you just need to convince T-Mobile to sim unlock and then you're set for years.

For what it's worth, OnePlus got back to my support ticket and confirmed 2 things for me:

1. An unlocked bootloader OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren 5G will still get OTAs on an unlocked bootloader, but they come from OnePlus
2. If you unlock your bootloader and brick your device, I was informed they can do a "remote session" to restore the software. If that's the case, someone may want to take this approach with a keylogger so we can get the support ZIP.

How would we get ota updates straight from oneplus if we are still on T-Mobile firmware/software Would we have to download their software?

Remote session hmm? Something tells me they'd have to put files on your computer right? I know it's not the most ethical thing in the world to suggest but what if you wait till said files get transferred over then maybe oh nooo my computer powered off whoops :p

I just attempted to get onto a chat and request a repair for my bricked device. The OnePlus guy told me they did not have a MSM tool for the TMobile version, unless they were lying. It was worth a shot.

    You do know you have to make sure you have a keylogger right? Something, like StupidKeylogger or similar. You will also need to cut connection as soon as all files are in and he/she logs in or use ALL the required passwords. Basically stop connection right before flashing starts. (at that point you should already have all files & passwords) Then make a quick copy of everything... Then reconnect and let the person finish... (with keylogger working in the background at ALL time.

    I'll make sure to do that! This is after all for the better for everyone on here. We deserve to have a way to recover our own devices.

    I'm gonna back it up to Google drive ;) then copy and paste the keylogger results into a text document I got you guys !

    I said that the phone was NOT bricked, (on various occasions). Been there, done that. Then I asked, Are you flashing A/B? (for restoration) Some of you guys said "How?" "How if you can't flash back?" bla bla bla... I made him make a backup OF EVERY SINGLE PARTITION A/B BEFORE starting. AND YES, YOU CAN FLASH BACK. Everyone went into DRAMA/PANIC mode. You need to have patience and the ability to follow instructions. (that was one of the requirements to join the channel) Then there was one "Shut Up"; After that... **** it, I can't work that way. That RAR package was designed for HIM and ONLY for HIM. Of course we are not going to flash all those partitions; his fingerprint was NOT working and his phone is going back to TMO on monday anyway... That was the perfect chance to push it to the limit. He already has a new phone and TMO WILL ACCEPT the DAMN phone no matter what. EVERYONE HERE that REALLY knows me, already knows I work for Samsung/T-Mobile. It's ****ing obvious. THERE IS A REASON BEHIND ALL MY ACTIONS/METHODS, IF YOU HAVE A DIFFERENT METHOD OR SIMPLY DON'T THINK IT'S POSSIBLE OR NONSENSE THEN GET THE **** OUT of my channel.
