I've looked all over Google and can't find a good answer, but what does GPU boost do? Also, anyone using different settings from the defaults? If so what are they and if you can, an explanation of why you changed them to what you did?

I was working on the Android 12 kernel today, and unfortunately bricked my OP8. I think it's dead. Spent the afternoon trying to fix it, but can't even get to EDL mode.
Are you at least able to see if the device is in CrashDump mode or stuck in 'fastboot mode'?

Spent several hours holding different buttons down and plugging and unplugging from the computer. Normally holding both volumes while plugging in to the computer will start EDL mode, but n

I think build in data/ system file of recovery is empty

Black screen, no response from any buttons. No vibration, nothing. I've been trying to get it into EDL mode to reflash with the msm tool. It seems to be truly bricked.
Completely discharge it, and then try the MSM tool.

Assuming that you have already attempted:
-- When you open MSM, you can hit start, then do the button combo. It is normal for it to exit EDL w/o any data.

-- Got the correct MSM for the variant, open it and press the start button.

-- Then, with the phone off, hold the volume up and down buttons while inserting the USB.

-- As soon as the MSM recognizes the phone, release the vol buttons.

-- Remove the USB when the phone restarts, and you should be done.

    Do you guys have the latest firmware? I have the 8 pro, so this may never get fixed. I don't know what the problem is exactly.
    The problem is that in op8 techpack/display a configuration entry is missing, you can fix it with this commit.

    aww man, not sure if it helps, my current setup is this
    * Bootloader Unlock
    * Magisk Canary Root
    * Reflash OnePlus Kernel (Thanks for having a kernel backup in elemental x manager)
    * Fingerprint works, and i am able to add more

    So weird, I am completely stock and cannot add a fingerprint.

    Try this: https://elementalx.org/kernels/OP8/10/AOSP/ElementalX-OP8-1.01.zip

    Fingerprint now working. Was able to enroll new and unlock without issue. Nice job man!

    Bad news. It will cost $541 for repair, so that's the end of the line for this device.

    I will never purchase or recommend a OnePlus device again.
