Please upload this tool if you have it so i can fix my phone .. at this point t-mobile, metro pcs and god knows what they all were able not only to fix their phone but install the unlocked rom without the bloatware .. Honestly i don't get why OP refuses to release this .. or maybe they have but its not posted here ..
So if you bought your phone from oneplus.com and have the unbricking tool .. please upload it or tell me how you managed to fix your phone

Contact OnePlus support, and request a remote session to repair your phone.

If they set one up, they'll send you a link to download the MSMDownload Tools ahead of time.

So far everyone with unlocked version has been told to mail their phone in, rather than doing the remote session. Once someone gets the remote session, they'll be able to upload the MSMDownload Tools.

already went thru that and instead of sending my phone in chose to wait for the tool.. looks like i made a huge mistake and now is too late to send it in ... but thanks for suggesting

Also waiting for an ops for the unlocked variant - I have a theory that converts between variants without unlocking BL, but without the ops it can't be verified.

I believe One Plus is not releasing their MSM tool specifically because it could be used to convert variants to unlocked / retail. They have refused multiple board members, myself included, to utilize the tool to remotely fix broken devices.

Dimitrimem, check the unbrick thread for my instructions on how to fix phones using fastboot and a super.img or fastbootd and the OTA.

Bootloader is locked so fastboot is not an option ..

If so do the following, because booting in fastboot itself will give you an error saying you cannot unlock the bootloader, you most boot into recovery, fastboot is not recovery it's considered the master recovery Incase if the Android recovery fails or you flashed the wrong file to the wrong partition.

You'll need to give that information. Check the box, your serial number should be on it.
The only thing I have from my mail with oneplus is the IMEI number from the form they made me fill in for the remote session only that later on they told me they don't have the files(msm) for my phone
If IMEI and serial number are the same let me know and I'll post thst here

Your phone comes preloaded with an emergency boot chip called Qualcomm download mode. Use the TMobile msm tool to flash your device back to factory, then you can essentially do what you need. To get back to oem.

My phone does not work with the MSM tool for TMobile... already tried that ( others already tried it so I'm not alone)

    The title in this post talks about unlocked phone as in one paid full price and can be used with any carrier ... now my phone has the bootloader locked so fastboot commands are limited. My bootloader is locked because I didn't unlock OEM in developer options ...
    I will try and use fastbootd as long as this will be allowed or not ...
    It can be confusing I know ..
    Thank you for trying to help out ❤
    No one should have to experience a bricked phone. It's not cool, and it's essentially why I try to help as much as I can. Even if I don't make sense half the time. You are welcome, Ethan.
