can you flash T-Mobile Version with international firmware? if so does that change what the imei reports when you go sign up for service and put in imei, like if i flashed it with international will imei still show as T-Mobile or will it show International model? or is all imei,s on a database that tells them what it is? reason i ask is they wont allow tmobile version of 1+ but, they allow the "UNLOCKED" ones you buy straight from 1+

You can't flash to international...

the imei doesn't change when you flash so the other carrier would probably still see it as a tmo phone, even if you could change to international...

who doesn't allow it?

    You have the HD1907, which is the T-mobile version of the 7T. It can be converted to Global firmware, but you are in the wrong forums. You need the 7T forums

    So it isn't possible at all to flash the global firmware on the T-Mobile mclaren? I understand that you wouldn't have 5G, but if I didn't care about that, could I still flash the global firmware and use it on 4g? I use AT&T service anyway.

    This forum is for the T-Mobile 7T Pro 5G Mclaren variant, (HD1925 only). The other Mclaren editions of the 7T Pro (without 5G) are the same as the regular 7T Pro, except for how it looks, so you should be in the regular 7T Pro forums.

    No, not possible. The T-mobile 7T Pro 5G Mclaren edition (HD1925) can NOT be converted to the global firmware because there is no global edition of the phone. It was ONLY sold in the US and ONLY by T-Mobile.

    Now, for example, the T-mobile 7 Pro, and the T-mobile 7T (along with the T-mobile OP 8 and 8T and virtually every other OnePlus phone that T-mobile has ever sold) can be converted to Global because there exists a global variant with identical hardware and therefore global firmware can be used for all of those models. But the OP7T Pro with the X55 5G modem (which is what the T-mobile 7T Pro 5G Mclaren edition is) was only ever sold in the US by T-mobile. So no global variant or firmware exists.

    Okay. That definitely makes sense! There's nothing to convert it to lol! Sorry. I'm kind of an idiot sometimes! I'm still learning! The one that I bought from eBay turned out to be a demo mode, and wasn't able to take any OTA updates... I returned it for a full refund, and I'm waiting for a regular 7t pro Chinese version flashed with the global ROM. Unbranded, so should be a lot easier to tinker with!

    Sorry,I know this is an old discussion but, I’m very confused. you say there is no global firmware for the T-Mobile version of the 7T pro, but then you turn around and say that it can be converted to global. My issue is this, I know there was more than one version of the op7Tpro mclaren edition. Is there a difference between the none carrier version and T-Mobile variant?

    Yes.

    I never said the T-Mobile version of the 7T Pro Mclaren could be converted to Global. And it can't be. I listed other models of T-Mobile variants that can be converted to Global (which is every one except the 7T Pro 5G Mclaren).

    Only the T-Mobile variant (HD1925) has the X55 5G radio. As this variant was only sold by T-Mobile in the US, no global, non-carrier, non-T-mobile firmware exists for it and updates are only available OTA thru T-Mobile and cannot manually be downloaded and installed.

    Any other variants of the 7T Pro Mclaren (besides HD1925) are identical to the non-Mclaren 7T Pro variants (except for the color of the phone). Therefore, if you have a 7T Pro Mclaren without 5G, you should look in the regular 7T Pro forums. These forums are for the US T-Mobile variant, HD1925, which was never sold anywhere else in the world (again, the difference is that the HD1925 has the X55 5G radio)

    Thank you, I get an answer. So I’ll stay away from the T-Mob version of the phone.
