I had the same problem with A.15. Wifi just would not work anymore.
As I bricked my device and received an exchange device, I don't know if the problem still exists on A.16.
Yes it's clearly related to A.15 I just updated to 16 and wifi and bluetooth are still working after flashing the patched image.

Hello everyone hope you are all keeping well.

Since there isn't a TWRP Recovery for Nord 2T (yet) and

Since I believe that many of you don't know about this, I've decided to share the steps I've done in order to root the Nord 2T.



I cannot be responsible if you brick your device. Your phone, your choices, your responsibility!



1 - Unlock the bootloader (if you haven't done it already...beware that this will erase all of your user data). To do so, you must:

  • Enable developer options
  • Enable the "OEM unlocking" option
  • Enable USB debugging
  • Have both adb and fastboot, from SDK Platform Tools available on your PC
  • Connect your phone to your PC using the USB cable and run the following commands:

Code:
adb devices

(just to make sure that your phone is, in fact, recognized by your PC and that you're able to run adb commands)

Code:
adb reboot bootloader

(so your phone will reboot into fastboot mode)

Code:
fastboot flashing unlock

(device should now unlock)

Code:
fastboot reboot

(device reboots with an unlocked bootloader and data partition wiped so set up the device from scratch again)

2 - Download Nord2T stock boot.img that you may find later on this post, that matches your current build.
  • Copy the boot.img to your devices internal memory
  • Leave a copy of it on your PC (on the same folder you have adb and fastboot...you never know if you will need to use it again in the future...to restore the stock boot.img, aka revert to stock...)

Stock boot CPH2399_11_A.07 (did not extract it and can't find the firmware file to be able to download and extract, if someone could please upload a link to it on this thread I would sincerely appreciate it)

Stock Boot CPH2399_11_A.09

Stock Boot CPH2399_11_A.11

Stock Boot CPH2399_11_A.14

Stock Boot CPH2399_11_A.15

Stock Boot CPH2399_11_A.16



3 - Download latest Magisk Manager from HERE and install it on your phone

4 - Open Magisk Manager App and press:
  • Install
  • Select and Patch a File
  • Browse to the path where you saved stock boot.img and select it
Magisk Manager will now patch the boot image and store it in [Internal Storage]/Download/magisk_patched.img

5 - Copy the patched boot image from your device to your PC (Store it on the same folder where you have adb and fastboot)

6 - Flash the patched boot image to your phone by running these commands (remember, you must have patched boot image on the same folder you have adb and fastboot and, of course, your device must be connected to your PC...)

Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Code:
fastboot flash boot magisk_patched.img
Code:
fastboot reboot
7 - After the phone boots up, hopefully with a normal boot (almost feels like nothing happened....), install/open Magisk Manager App again and watch Magisk doing it's magic!

8 - Enjoy!

All credits goes to topjohnwu and his incredible work with Magisk.


Thank's.

1. Is the boot process reversible ?
2. Will the boot process prevent the ability of Google Pay ?
3. Will the boot process allow me to use a call recording feature - This is what i am actually need. [It is legal use in my country]

When I use the command "adb reboot bootloader" my screen goes black and freezes just with the words "flashboot mode" on, if I try to continue with the next command it just says "waiting for any device" but does not progress.
Any help?

When your screen goes black, it should say fastboot mode, not flashboot mode.
That means you are in fastboot mode and need to use fastboot instead of adb.

Try

Code:
fastboot devices


If there is no device listed, you need to update the drivers.

as command.

    I want to Root my oneplus 2T please Help

    Yes so follow the extensive guide I wrote on the first post.
    1
    Just to avoid the chance of bricking the 2T:

    -After an OTA, the (magisk) patched boot.img will be restored to the original boot.img
    -Rebooting will boot the system using the new boot.img instead of the patched one and root will be gone
    -To get back root, the procedure patching the boot image has to be done again after reboot

    Is that correct?
    That's correct. As long as the full 4gb+ ota is installed and not the smaller incremental update everything will be okay.
    The device shouldn't let you install the smaller incremental update if you are rooted and download the full update which includes the new system.img boot.img and the many other .img's so patching of the new boot.img is needed for root again
    1
    How do I distinguish the smaller and the 4gb+ ?
    It will say it when going to update. Doesn't matter anyway it will only install the full ota so you shouldn't have to worry

    I was wondering... How can I extract the boot.img by myself without relying upon anyone? With the oxygen updater app I've the full firmware (~4 GB), would that be useful to extract the boot.img?
    By using THIS software. I will always update this thread with the latest boot.img files in the future but this is the software I used
