bad news, after waiting for days for a response from Oneplus, I decided to phone them. They state that after speaking to the remote support team, they cannot even help us. As they apparently don't have the images for the T-Mobile firmware either/ firmware for the Mclaren edition. This is a big bummer as until they (if they for that matter) release the firmware on support site we have no way of really recovering a bricked device and any firmware flashing is gonna be very dangerous to attempt. So yeah.. really regretting buying a T-Mobile variant Oneplus phone atm.
i heard the same thing. probably going to ship to oneplus for reflash if you guys don't have any tricks. stuck in QCOM flash mode now no fastboot etc

i did this. vendor.img appears to have the qualcomm code for support for 5g, and is the reason i bootlooped before trying to flash super.img etc. for anyone curious, the super.img didn't get to flash; that reboot that came before it stuck it in a qcom loop.

Manual below, also included flash-all.bat and flash-all.sh , etc., in the zipped flash folder; I haven't tested the two scripts yet, so please let me know if they need edits. )
can anyone tellme if this is the normal file for OP7T PRO 5G Mclaren
or is this perhaps a dual sim version? bc thats what I am looking for
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1J5_igi3ekdHM-nXT72wKyfHK9pxfI0gcIs it possible for someone to pull all these partitions?
The super.img method isn't working for me
I also asked OnePlus https://www.oneplus.com/support/contact for a MSM image for the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren, since it's critical for safe development. In my case, they did not say no, they just gave me a boilerplate response of, "About your concern we would like to inform you that we will take this as feedback and pass it along to our developer team so that this update can be rectified in the upcoming updates in the near future." They emailed me again asking for a further response and I haven't replied yet, because that second email was more obviously automated and did not have a name like the first one did. I think they could possibly let a tech post it to XDA, etc., if convinced by someone with experience like a XDA Recognized Developer.
I would like to create a hybrid super.img with Global 7T Pro img & 5G 7T Pro img. (maybe keeping modem/vendor/kernel from 5G) It should be possible.
I can't compile lpunpack. (Ubuntu 18.10) Still can't extract super.img for individual images... and what about repack? (in order to create hybrid super.img)
Has anyone been able to get that super.img extracted?
I get this error every time!
[email protected]:~/Firmware_extractor$ ./extractor.sh firmware.zip

As much as I love(d) arch (currently a gentooist) thats the exact type of distro
that binaries floating around the web are not going to work for forever. You
can build your own lpunpack, which will definitely work on your system, but
I don't know how to do that outside of using the lineageos/etc build tree
In my case, I just want a clean hybrid img in order to activate the dual sim function. That's all I want, the TMO firmware is perfectly fine... (and replace boot/shutdown animations with original McLaren bootanimations) This super.img pull procedure and the ability to push/restore it back is a huge step forward for our McLaren 5G. At least there is a bit of light the end of the tunnel. (even without the damn MSM Tool)
@ntzrmtthihu777 Can you post the super.img extracted... at least that way we can flash images individually. (and test replacing/swapping images)
Also... you do have a 7T Pro too? lol... You have the full kit required... lol (we also need the 7T Pro images... lol)
