Thank you--the issue I was having was that I wasn't holding down the volume down + power buttons while also tapping the volume up button. With your help, I was able to get into 9008 mode, and then load and flash the V35 image to my device.So without the 'enable oem unlock', follow the directions and be sure to flash the 'frp' indicated.
To get to edl mode is difficult at first. With the phone booted, press and hold both vol minus and pwr buttons. Continue to hold them and when u see the 'count down' screen, wait until it reaches 0 and the screen blanks, then quickly start pressing vol up on and off as quickly as u can (continue to hold the other 2 keys down).
If the phone goes blank and stays there, you're in edl mode. If it reboots, try again. Many people, even those with experience doing this, find it takes several tries.
However, I'm now struggling to get my phone to properly fastboot. When leaving 9008 mode, I hold down the volume down key, but the phone seems to start as normal, and fastboot devices doesn't detect anything. Am I supposed to hold down any other keys aside from volume down after restarting the phone out of 9008 mode? And--if I fail to get into fastboot after flashing the image initially, do I need to re-flash it every time?
Thanks so much (to whoever offers any more advice).
