You need the exact tool for the exact device. There's no mixing and matching anymore because OnePlus now does more thorough and deeper checks to ensure you are flashing that exact device.

This is for the Chinese variant, not the T-Mobile variant. There's no exploit around this and even if there were, the hardware is different enough to matter.


Well that's a downer, sucks too because the one guy asked specifically if it was for the TMobile variant with a OnePlus Rep.

Well that's a downer, sucks too because the one guy asked specifically if it was for the TMobile variant with a OnePlus Rep.

I never intended getting this phone, but i got it for $400 unlocked. Well, it was SUPPOSED to be and of course the seller lied about that. I bought it February 3rd. I tried and tried myself to get it unlocked thru T-Mobile over chat and phone. The buyer told me he had two more payments and to give him a few days. This went on for weeks. I finally realized it was a lost cause.
After one of the T-mobile reps said, I can't give you any specifics, since it was on another account but if i was in your situation I would get rid of it as fast as you can.

So I opened a case on ebay and was approved to return it. The day I was going to mail it I got on T-Force. I said i need to unlock my phone. He said asked for the imei. I gave it to him and said it wasn't showing up and wanted to know what kind of phone it was. I said Oneplus and he siad give me few. Five minutes later he told me to go to the unlock app and hit permanent unlock. Just like that. Freedom!!

Or so I thought. That was like the 18th of Feb. Since then I've tried calling and chatting with Oneplus and got no where. I told them i need a dual sim phone. That i know there is no international rom for the Oneplus 7T Pro 5G McLaren, but Since they made the f-ing phone to activate the sim. They kept telling me it can't be done. I told them the hardware is built in they could do it if they actually cared...

Over the last 3 three days I went hardcore. I have logged a good 32 hours on chat, in just the last 3 days alone. I have just pummeled them with request after request after request after request. I was running 4 different browsers, on all of them I was chatting with Oneplus. I asked for the what some have said does not exist. A version of software that activates the dual sim on the T-Mobile variant. I need that other sim to be activated. After escalating each case. I had 15 different email accounts going and after talking to around 7 different Level2 Tech Specialists one agent finally approved me getting my phone flashed.

Once approved for this it basically meant nothing. I still had to claw my way thru. I had to go thru 4 more Level 2 Tech agents because from there they told me they can't legally do it. I didnt go that far for nothing. I waited for his shift to end bc I kept restarting chat and asking to speak to LEvel 2 tech specialist I kept getting transferred to the same guy. So I called again and I was told to wait 24-48 hours and I would receive a call for remote session.

Then it took me calling 8 separate times and 4 more days for me to actually get a remote session. Finally with download instructions. I got my remote session. During the session the guy was unlocking files and whatnot and I may have "accidentally disconnected" mid remote session. Hahaha;)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Before I get anyone too excited. I'm drawing a blank here. Last year I converted a Oneplus 6T and Oneplus 7 Pro that were T-Mobile to dual sim by installing international Rom. We all know the OP7TPROM5G is another animal alI together.

I still have the Oneplus 7 Pro and all those files for conversion. So i thought it would try and refresh my memory on connecting to the MSM Download Tool with my OP7 PRO and I don't remember ever having a problem, but the tool isnt' recognizing my OP7PRO i guess
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So this is me attempting to connect to the MSM Tool for the Oneplus 7 Pro. ( practice run)
Steps:
All files are where they should be.
Drivers installed.
Phones off.
then I hold down volume keys
count to 5
then plug in to my computer (using OEM USB)
Yet it won't connect.

What am I forgetting?

Hello guys, I don't want to sound negative but after contacting oneplus support over 60 times and explaining repeatedly I want to convert to international version and enabling Dual SIM. I got in remote session and what I can say these people are kind of lost when it comes to support he flashed my device with T-mobaile variant lol.

I had long chat with him, in conclusion: he said they used to have international version hd1925 and flashed some phones with it and caused big troubles( bugs) also they did alternative solutions having dual sim option enabled but with keeping t-mobile software but also caused troubles in the software phone, currently he said the phone still new phone and I have to wait now, and they are currently in developing and fixing international software for hd1925.

He asked me to email him about alternative solution to enable dual sim and he will open a case for me, once it is ready he will connect remote session and flash my phone with this alternative solution.

please find screenshots

i think i may. The msmdownloadtoolv4.0 (5.0.17.0) when opened says customer service and has field for username and password. I found similar file on here but the files size is a little smaller.

I have been through same process, When you open the tool a window has username and pass, just change the drop-down menu and choose "other".. then continue the installation, if you want further more instructions, Please let me know we can make session via skype or whatever, also would be great if you share the files :) I want to try on my phone as well.

I have a feeling they made the same trick as me, the files could actually be the same for tmobile single sim.

Will this flash the international version if we do it like this?

That's the normal MSM for our device. If there happened to be an MSM for dual sim functionality (which there probably isn't) it would probably be for a version of our phone before the release build, so pre-0.13. The earlier builds for our phone probably had dual sim functionality enabled, there are bit left behind in the 0.13 modem that suggest this.

well ive been harassing oneplus to activate the second sim. Out of at least 2 dozen reps I finally got them to send me files in anticipation of remote session.

On two seperate cases i filed they sent me the same files that i listed. I was completely clear that I needed to activate dual sim and that was the sole purpose. We all know theres no international rom but they claim this will do it.

They say theres such a long wait for remote session bc of the whole virus ordeal so who knows....

I'm new here and new to rooting phones. Let me know how getting the international version for the 7TPro 5G. I bought the phone to see if I could get ithe dual Sims to work, but to no avail. The good news I got Tmo to permanently carrier unlock my phone today without it being paid off. :)

I'm looking forward to testing and working to improve the phone.

Is it possible to load Beta OxygenOS versions onto the T-Mobile 7T Pro 5G McLaren without rooting the phone?

    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...

    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.

    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.
