I understand your dissaponintment. If you only used your phone like always and not flashed anything or updated the phone in background etc. its probably just faulty hardware. That happens to every device sometimes. Thats why there is warranty etc.

I'm not sure what has happened with mine but when I run the flash_all file.bat file I get the error that some partitions are missing:
odm, product, system, system_ext_a, vendor

Anyone has any idea how to solve this?

Nothing Phone 1
Update :

Here are listed all the Super Partitions available for us to fix our Nothing :

1.1.3 EEA : Link

1.1.4 Global : Link

Remember that you have to download the Sh4ttered tool version according to the version you are trying to restore.


Again, feel free to share a backup of yours that is not listed here to help other in need ;)
I'm unable to download the firmware it's gives me error and says do you want to flash your phone now(y/n) then command window closes automatically

    If there's a way I can extract a working persist. Img from a ROM and restore it using that partition backup/restore tool, do you think that would work?

    It's just very odd to me that all my mother sensors work except fingerprint
    The only way I know is some apps that require root to backup partitions. If someone else knows a way to backup partitions without root, let me know.

    Stuff like fingerprint sensor includes information specific to the phone hardware, so installing someone else's persist backup breaks the fingerprint sensor. This is what I understand.

    Welcome to this unbrick tutorial



    NB: I state immediately that i'm not responsible for any damage that occurs on your phone. This process worked for my Nothing Phone on 1.1.3, but maybe not on yours.
    I do not suggest following this tutorial if you are on 1.1.4 but since your phone is already out of usage, you can try on your own.


    In the next lines we will see how to restore our device to its original factory conditions, after unlocking the Bootloader. Note that all your data will be lost.

    You are missing some of the phone partitions? This might solve your issue.

    Let's begin!

    MATERIAL REQUIRED :
    Latest platform tools correctly installed Link
    - Unlocked bootloader both classic and critical unlock Link
    - Sh4ttered Tool (download the version that matches the version you are trying to restore when you bricked your phone ) Link
    - Super partition listed in post #2 and corresponding to your device version and region
    - PC with Microsoft Windows 7-8-8.1-10-11
    - USB type C cable
    - Drivers of Nothing Phone installed


    STEP 1 : Prepare everything

    Extract the super partition from the zip to the platform tools folder and rename it super.img. Boot your device into Fastboot mode through power + Vol -
    Once into fastboot mode, launch a CMD window into your platform tool folder by typing cmd in the search bar of your platform tool folder.
    Then, connect your phone to the computer and type the command :


    If a line appears, your phone is correctly connected.

    Type the command :

    fastboot flash super super.img

    If it flashed correctly, you should see something like this :
    C:\Users\Alex\Desktop\platform-tools>fastboot flash super super.img
    Invalid sparse file format at header magic
    Sending sparse 'super' 1/9 (786428 KB) OKAY [ 19.574s]
    Writing 'super' OKAY [ 0.013s]
    Sending sparse 'super' 2/9 (786428 KB) OKAY [ 19.587s]
    Writing 'super' OKAY [ 0.018s]
    Sending sparse 'super' 3/9 (786428 KB) OKAY [ 19.609s]
    Writing 'super' OKAY [ 0.012s]
    Sending sparse 'super' 4/9 (698716 KB) OKAY [ 17.393s]
    Writing 'super' OKAY [ 0.012s]
    Sending sparse 'super' 5/9 (765968 KB) OKAY [ 19.103s]
    Writing 'super' OKAY [ 0.010s]
    Sending sparse 'super' 6/9 (763420 KB) OKAY [ 19.074s]
    Writing 'super' OKAY [ 0.017s]
    Sending sparse 'super' 7/9 (786097 KB) OKAY [ 19.636s]
    Writing 'super' OKAY [ 0.009s]
    Sending sparse 'super' 8/9 (786089 KB) OKAY [ 19.745s]
    Writing 'super' OKAY [ 0.029s]
    Sending sparse 'super' 9/9 (102406 KB) OKAY [ 2.853s]
    Writing 'super' OKAY [ 6.798s]
    Finished. Total time: 167.087s

    Once that step is done, your phone has now working super partitions.


    STEP 2 : Flash stock firmware

    After flashing super.img, you have to flash all the left partitions. For that, with powershell, run the Download.ps1 made by Sh4ttered and downloaded earlier.

    Download the correct region and version of the firmware.

    Once the Firmware is downloaded, you should see a new fw.zip

    Run the flash_all.bat script, it should flash all the partitions without issues.

    If something went wrong, tell me in the comment section.

    Then, your device should reboot.



    STEP 3 : Check your slots

    If your device is still not booting, simply change the slot you're on with the following commands :

    fastboot reboot fastboot

    You should reboot into fastbootd.

    Then use :

    Look for the line where it says current-slot and it will tell you if it's A slot or B slot

    Once you know on wich slot you are, try booting on the other one by running this last command :

    fastboot set_active b
    If you're on a slot, or :


    fastboot set_active a
    If you're on b slot.


    Reboot your phone after that, and you should boot normally.



    If not, let me know your issues in the comments by posting your logs and explaining me where you had an error.
    Sorry for my bad english sometimes

    Huge thanks to XDA Community, ssut for payload-dumper-go, Sh4ttered and his team for his tool.

    I wanted to update from v1.1.4 (b slot) to v1.1.6 and was burning v1.1.6 image files to the a slot using fastboot, but maybe I inadvertently forgot to add "***_a" to the command and burned some v1.1.6 image files to the v1.1.4 b slot. When I reboot afterwards, I get a "Push any key to shutdown" message in the upper left corner with the Nothing logo, and I can't get into fastboot or recovery. Is there any way to fix it?(deepl)
    v1.1.4(bスロット)からv1.1.6にアップデートしようと思い、fastbootでaスロットにv1.1.6のイメージファイルを焼いていたのですが、多分私の不注意でコマンドに"○○_a"をつけ忘れて何個かのv1.1.6のイメージファイルをv1.1.4のbスロットに焼いてしまい、その後リブートするとNothingのロゴと共に左上端に「Push any key to shutdown」と出て、fastbootにもrecoveryにも入れず完全に詰んでいる状況です、ここまで来ると、サポートに送るしか直す手段は無いでしょうか?

    Awesome thank you. The super.img is the key to unbrick our NP1. This is the key to more modding.

    This one for example.
