Just bricked my OnePlus 10 pro and couldn't accept the fact that I just got the phone and bricked it to black screen, so i bought a new one out of anger. First i had fingerprint issues after a guy helped me with this stupid MSM tool (paid). Tried flashing a rom manually through fastboot, and even power button doesn't work anymore, nothing recognizes my phone, not even USB. Why are they doing this, i didn't have no problem with the 9 Pro

May I ask what y'all did to brick your 10 Pros? I've only heard bricked when trying to flash a custom ROM or (drunkingly) try to update my phone lol

Well if you flash a rom specifically like flashing system, vendor, boot etc. You won't be able to turn the phone on anymore after a reboot. Even connecting a USB to a PC doesn't work. It feels completely dead actually. I think OnePlus are the only one that are able to revive the phone. So take my tip, don't play with these tools you'll end up like us without fingerprint or worse a dead phone

No you can open the back up and jumper the test points ... But that's the only thing you can do.. then you gotta pay someone to remote flash you. But yes once you attempt a flash and get to this state, your are basically holding a true paperweight .... But a simple EDL flash restored it in 1 attempt.... As long as you can adhere to whatever schedule that completely conflicts daily life in the western hemisphere..... I had to be up at 2:45 am on a Thursday to catch the free 30 minutes that the guy could alot to take my money and revive my phone... But on positive note.... The dude had absolutely ZERO lack of confidence that his flash would bring it back to life... And there's absolutely NOTHING better than a kinda smug , person who types in a strange dialect ... Who obviously knows little to nothing about the interworking that formulates the Android Os... Talking to you like you are 13 levels beneath him in intelligence... And you just have to grit your teeth and not lash out in telegram, or you will go several more days with a shiny rectangular rock on your desk! 💩🤡

Where to find file 'FTGUIDev.exe'? I don't have this file.
That file you're speaking of is the output of running the MSM Download Tool, directly from the unzipped fw package. When you start the MSM Download Tool, your computer remaps that file to a new file it creates named "FTGuidev.exe" in your
'Appdata/Local/OppoFlash Tool/ FTGUIDev.exe'
You can mod this file directly after you attempt to run the tool once .. or you can modify the tool named "MSM download tool.exe". The result is the same... It just creates a renamed version of the file you modified ... Or you go to the folder and modify it there...

(In case you haven't learned yet .. absolutely NOTHING this phone does goes by a simple method... I mean why create a completely DIFFERENT named version of the same file, in a strange location, but leave the original file in place too, making it act like a full size shortcut .. I feel like this is the Charlie Brown of phones! Haha).

Lol... Gotta find some humor in this dumpster fire of a phone! For me it's nice to narrate what a few of us have probably thought once or twice while pretending the phone is a small person with a rectangular neck, and you just wanna 🙌 strangle it til it starts choking and in a little digital voice, agrees "Ok.. ok... I'm sorry man you win... I will boot up and start working right !". 😁

I bricked by flashing payload in Fastboot Enhanced.

Guys from {Mod edit. Oswald Boelcke} (paid $22) unbricked it using EDL and MSM tool. Did a great job and didn't stop until my OnePlus 10T was working.

Hi,

Since i got my oneplus 10 pro, i have as many others been searching for a MSM tool for our device, but has been unable to locate one. The best and closest thing i found was a site that apparently had MSM tool for every region, but the rar file needed a password to extract so it was of no use. Until today. I checked the same site and for some reason the password was now shown on the site, so i downladed NE2213GDPR_11_A.10_2022022602530000 and it worked!

All files are present but the MSM tool need login though, but maybe we can find a way to get around this?

The OFP file is present and my understanding is that this is the file that contains the firmware MSM tool uses to flash via edl, so maybe we can get a "cracked" msm tool/exe that dosent need login?

The site is: {Mod edit. Oswald Boelcke}
Thread has been sanitised from links to gsmmafia. That website is not welcome on XDA.

I decided to take a shot and test this method...(my choice my risk), only me to blame). I took the ofp file from package downloaded from gsmmafia (2213 europe)... and after succesful flashing of the ofp.file I ended with hard brick. Phone is totally unresponsive, there's no way to put it into edl mode or charge ...nothing. I've already ordered pick-up to service center. My conclussion is...either file was wrong or the method itself is incomplete (some critical partitions have not been flashed maybe due to the fact the device was in bl instead of edl mode, who knows.). To sum up. Don't use it!

Been in your EXACT same state bro... Too bad you already RMA... your device is just in what Qualcomm calls "Deep Sleep" . It is a mode to protect the volatile file system from further corruption, after attempting to flash a firmware that had Size/Compatibility/Manifest conflicts that would have otherwise been NON-recoverable if the system had went ahead and allowed the "Newly flashed" fw to finish processing. Basically it goes to sleep to prevent a hard brick!

BUT if you open the back of the phone, and set a jumper on the Test Points, (And it has to stay in place the whole time in EDL) Your phone will be recognized in 9008 Downloader mode ,,,, BUT WITHOUT THE BATTERY CONNECTED. Then after 10 sec in DL mode, if you have a QPST server window open, and you click connect, but dont flash anything, your device will auto change over to DIAG mode, for interaction with EFS File Explorer.

Theres ALOT of work that needs to be done (several files and conf in the EFS that you need to either delete, or change some info, and one particular
"CarrierPolicy.xml" which needs to be refined, and then your phone would allow you to reboot back to normal powered state. and send you automatically into Fastnoot. (I have tested and whittled down to exactly what needs to be edited, and purposely bricked my 10Pro about 15 times to make sure my technique worked)

I wont disclose publicly because of a "Cease and Desist" Order i received from BBK/Oppo ... as they have threatened in letter #3 to push Qualcomm to also invoke the "Reverse Engineering Clause" as i use Authorized QXDM and QPST programs that are modified to remove license checks. But what i can say in public is that "It does not matter WHAT STATE YOUR PHONE IS IN... Bricked.... Unresponsive...... Looped..... as long as you are willing and can access the main board of any Qualcomm phone...... You can bring it back to life, with these tools! In extreme curcumstances, all you need is someone with an authorized MSM account, and once you short the ISP Pinout /Test Point connectors. your phone skips ALL layers of the Android file system, and goes into a special "Security Free" emergency download instance of 9008 Download mode.... Both appear similar... but normal EDL by buttons, or ADB commands, has "Secure Trust Zone, and Secure Boot" both active and on guard to make sure you have the permissions authorized by Qualcomm. Using the Test Points only activates 1 security, which is Qualcomm's VIP mode. That is THEIR protection against catastrophic damage to the filesystem. If you DONT have a QUALCOMM Signed Loader/Programmer, you will fail VIP Auth, and the flash will crash. But in this EDL someone can MSMTool flash your phone remotely with no problem!

    GOOD GOOD... Thats what i like to hear from my Android Brethren !! Hack, Crack, Disassemble, and Attack the weaknesses of these infernal devices !!! (I need sleep!) ... Sorry, im stuck in some medieval, warfare mindset .. my bad! lol...

    BUT heres what i came for: Humor me.....

    IN THEORY... considering that EVERY post on the internet regarding DIAG mode on phone, (including IOS!) has started with the same goal.... "Using Root access, to enable Diag for access to the EFS" .... So basically everyone is saying that at the time... ROOT was horse... and Diag was the finish line! ... Right? Cuz thees guys were trying to hack bootloaders that had no accessible interface. And DIAG was their answer every time... and it worked! (Mostly)....

    What i am proposing is NOT trying to hack the bootloader, because i already know how to crack that... But if it used to be a REQUIREMENT that to even discuss DIAG, you must have Root.... Then can ANYONE HERE put together a way, in which I could REVERSE that process.... or at least leverage DIAG MODE, to get myself a Root Shell.... or alter the SUID or even outright set a new user, as "UID 0" ... temporarily even if i can only force 1 app to see my account as SYSTEM, so that i can get RW access to Build.prop, or Local.Prop ?? Then i can make 1 flag change in it that will snowball me right thru the security and into the bootloader!

    I mean as Diag I can literally DELETE the phone's whole identity! No imei.. no baseband... no modem... no mac address.. by the access i have to the EFS... and you cant even directly access that partition with ROOT ... only DIag and EDL have that authority! So imho there HAS TO BE a way to leverage a lower permission level thru some kind of console, where i can indirectly make a change to the build.prop. And i dont care if it Bricks the device 5 minutes later, cuz i am gonna make my change be locked with a persistent property that is already in place! It just needs a 1 in place of a 0, or an alternate access point which is also persistent, and just needs one word added to the line! Either way, if the phone bricks right after for some security violation, i will still have enough access to break the secure chain of trust and make my flags permanent! So if i have to pay for a flash to restore my phone, so be it... i know that the two things i edit survived an edl flash several times already!

    I really need EVERYONE ON DECK for this... cuz getting this done will cut at least 50% of the work i need to build us an MSM - Mafia FREE edition. Im talking to the guys who still think UP UP DOWN DOWN LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT B A Start, is a goof cheat code! As well as the people who can walk past an ATM machine, wave their hand in front of it, and 100's start spitting out like a money shooter... Yall cannot tell me that the Apple guys are better than us r/n ... cuz literally every time a new IOS drops... in less than a few days 3+ randos release videos as POC of them successfully gaining TFP0 , which is the IOS equivalent of ROOT.... I refuse to believe that the 17 y/o kid wearing a fedora, and a neckerchief, as they are walking up to the Starbucks counter to order their Venti Chai Mocha Latte..... NO .... I DO NOT ACCEPT THAT VISUAL! To me that worse than walking in on your parents smashing on top of the dining room table! ... at least then i know that they were making each other happy! ... But "Smuggy McMasterson III" strutting up to buy a lawn garden coctail from a coffee shop, while feeling all "chipper" cuz his team found a Kernel Memory Leak in 'IOS whogivesacrap beta 4' ... yet we cant find one privilege escalation, is the stuff of my nightmares!

    YALL DONT WANNA GIVE ME NIGHTMARES DO YOU!!! I THOUGHT WE WERE FRIENDS!!!

    FRIENDS DONT LET FRIENDS GET HANDLED BY A CRAPTASTIC BOOTLOADER, ,GUARDED BY 1 FLAG! COME ON!

    so heres what the OTP guys are doing...

    Be prepared... this is a VERY long detailed post...

    so what they are basically doing is....

    they are running their own "last pass" kind of server from AWS... Where they are daily logging in to their amazon web server account, and updating the MSM TOOL login, so that it refreshes every time one of them needs to pull an OTP. But its up to whoever admins the account as to how long tokens last for.

    then they created (or cloned) that GA_Login tool, which is just a general purpose login tool which can be made to work with any app. It comes with modified code so that you can attach it to any program written under a certain language. (different versions of the login tool for different program languages) Then the tool officially has access to manipulate the login values of whatever app.

    I believe the tool has legit licenses with the companies otherwise they would be violating the reverse engineering laws, and everyone who is profiting from it would be subject to an arresting offense! That would depend on the companies to press charges. But its easy to gain permission from a company for this purpose because you arent altering the code, only adding further security to mask passwords!

    So the OTP being generated, are just a valid login that is masked by a secure password masking system. Unfortunately it is unable to be decrypted due to mitigations involved with packet capture and the login relies on an internet connection. Now unfortunately thru further inspection, the OFP flashing app DOES maintain a secure check of the VIP Authentication signature, and that signature is verified on the phone itself through a command called by the Linux Library "Libqmi" ... this can be built and programmed by anyone, but the actual procedure for JUST doing a VIP Auth signature, is not detailed on how to perform this.

    THIS is what the QFIL application is doing when the sahara programmer is called.... the sahara programmer has a heavily encrypted HASHING ALGORITHM which sends one value to your phone, and then your phone verifies and calculates a response to send back to the Sahara.... The sahara already knows the correct answer even though it sits waiting, and if a single character is off, then sahara shuts down the communication portal, and sends us back an error. At that time, the phone is stuck in perpetual FAILED mode, and needs to be reset in order to try again.

    The problem with this is that during a FULL BRICK state, meaning no communication without shorting the Test Points, while the battery is disconnected, then there is no way to get a valid time stamp from your device. The timestamp is part of the sahara's calculation. Thus this is why manually flashing thru QFIL continues to fail. The PATCHED Firehose loaders, simply have the TIMESTAMP requirement removed from the calculation, so that the only thing verified is the devices SOC and board information.

    The MSM ONLINE tool, does its own timestamp calculations and intercepts the communication of the Sahara, then injects the current valid timestamp in real time, which then gives the approved signature to the sahara, and authorizes your flash.

    Conclusion: Someone who has .elf file coding skills needs to completely disassemble the loader, which can be pulled from ANY OP 10series.... or actually ANY Snapdragon 845 r 1, based phone, and compare that to several other loaders of recent related chipsets... ie Snapdragon 845 r 2, or possibly even Snapdragon 865... but if they are fluent enough working with elf files, they should be able to locate the instruction code that requests a timestamp, as part of the signature, and delete/disable that requirement. THEN recompile that loader and we will have the file needed from OFFLINE flashes via the patched MSM Tool, or Qfil.

    The login is the ONLY requirement of the MSMTool!
    It is the sahara firehose itself that is killing our ability to continue flashing once the login is bypassed. Whether the phone is in brickstate or not has no value to the value being submitted to the sahara. OPPO programmed our phones to interrupt communication thru the USB, on a BUTTON, or ADB request to enter EDL mode. This is why when connecting via the command line, or thru the recovery mode shortcut, there is a slight 3-5 second delay until your phone is detected in 9008 mode.

    1. When entering by holding the VOL buttons and plugging the usb in, the phone loses communication to the TIMESTAMP function, which makes the sahara fail offline, due to no MSM Tool server intervention. (remember the MSM server is not maintained by OPPO, but is actually built by Qualcomm... they just provide access to OPPO for repair functions.)

    ^^This will cause QFIL to fail, because a valid VIP cant be generated without the timestamp! ... But the MSM server can interject the correct timestamp being that its online and always in sync^^

    2. When entering EDL via cli, the phone is SUPPOSED to go straight into QCOMM DOWNLOAD MODE... with no interruption, but OPPO amended a "Reboot" command into the opperand forcing the usb to lose connection to the board and breaking the sync, and thus forcing the timestamp to be invalid once the connection is made again with the programmer.

    ^^This is why COLOROS is a game changer... Because they pushed their own, RECOVERY, and FASTBOOT protocols as overlays of the REAL Qcomm Recovery and Fastboot. Recovery and Fastboot are requirements of Qcomm/Android devices. But HOW they are laid out to us are completely up to the manufacturers. The ColorOS Recovery, and Fastboot (D) that is made by OPPO, alters the timestamp being generated, to force a standard 12hr format instead of 24hr ... Sahara doesnt know wtf AM, or PM is... so anything from ColorOS is gibberish in the timestamp.

    THERE IS ONE CAVEAT...

    All androids with altered Fastboot and Recovery protocols, ,MUST include a "Debug Boot Image". These actually communicate to the Qualcomm diagnostic function. Although atm i have no idea how to BOOT into these images, as they are not the same as the normal .img files we use for everything else. Calling on one of these images, is a process completely different than standard android boot.img ... so again i believe this to be one of the functions of LIBQMI .... this library makes a connection to the device over usb but more importantly the SERIAL communicator console on the board. Once this communication is connected, you have full control over all partitions/filesystems inside the entire device, without regulation. You could technically tell your smartphone it is now a smart TOASTER, (but this would certainly crash immediately without the proper functions being built into the chipset.)

    So now i task ANYONE who might have decent Linux knowledge to research QMI and how it communicates, to find the proper commands/access to call upon the Debug.img , which you can pull our of any downloaded fw.

    I will still be working on alternate methods, but as of now QMI seems to be our only answer.

    And final statement. OTP cannot be spoofed in any method to gain authorized MSM access, anymore than you being able to spoof authentication into a "last pass" account to gain control over someones password collection. They both maintain about the same level of encryption.

    I hope thats detailed enough to get to everyones thoughts, as i probably wont be able to answer anything much deeper for the time being. I have personally put myself into a financial situation, by the amount of time i have devoted to this, and now need to create a miracle or 2 in order to recover from the domino effect that i hadnt realized i triggered until today. Sorry i couldnt do a hell of a lot more... if i had the financial resources to not worry about bills for a month or two i could totally crack this thing wide open, and probably put a devastating hurt on OPPO in the process... but Electricity, Rent, Car, Insurance, Food, and general living, all factor in to the amount of time i can spend on this. (which sucks because bounties are upwards of 50K or more for the discovery of holes in the functions i was working on, and according to Qcomm i was very close to a pretty high critical cve being declared!) 😖

    The thing I don't understand is HOW you recover the phone after bricking it? :)))
    Isn't this the point of all this efforts? To find a FREE way to flash the bricks?
    i dont recover THAT phone.... i have 2... a 10 Pro, and a 10T.... building the FREE version of the msmtool requires a TON of full captures of all the usb data being passed from device to software, to weed out the BS, and isolate the signature itself, then decrypt or find a way to spoof it.... But testing the method over and over on the exact same device does not produce me enough variables to know if my findings are valid FOR ME... which will help no one... or if they are valid for ALL ... and for that I need the data which my 10T will provide.

    the 10Pro uses the Snapdragon 8450... the 10T uses the Snapdragon 8475 ....

    BOTH models use the same board config, TARO..... the only big difference is the cameras....

    ive completely eliminated the sign on necessity for the tool... so far my mods have successfully patched out the entire login script. So on the newest MSMTool... mine opens right up to the choose your device screen, ... but there are 3 major verification checks that happen during the flag.... 3% a VIP or AUTH token is requested by the app... I think i have isolated the process on the phone that generates the validated response..... (1st good find... because that means if the next 2 are also generated BY the phone.... I can trash the hell out of the programming inside the MSM tool, that sends ANY KIND of network request!.... If all the tool needs the net for is the LOGIN, and everything else is validated by the phone, it proves the EDL flash can be completed offline! Tag in the LOOPBACK adapter again to fool MSM into thinking it is still online.... remove the login segment of the tool.... drop in a few shell commands to trigger the intents that i believe the AUTH signature are coming from.... and if that all goes well on 2 DIFFERENT devices, then i know it will work on ALL in the 10 series..... capice?

    oh, and HOW i keep recovering my 10 Pro is thanks to a buddy who you have spoken with in the past few replies.... Canuck ... he is supplying me with OTP credits he purchased to help me do this research... each token lasts 24 hrs... which gives me around 2 - 300 flashes... IF i needed that many... but i usually pull about 10-12 ... i have captures of over 500 successful flashes and now have started finding REPEATED DATA overlapping thru several captures.... meaning none of that data is part of the encrypted AUTH signature... In my 27 years of programming... and 14 specifically with android... I have NEVER seen a truly encrypted Hash value EVER repeat the same sequence of an entire row of encrypted code... let alone even 64 characters..... well i have about 90 pages that have this in common! so that makes the amount of data i have to isolate even smaller..... more flashes.... more eliminations..... more repeating crypto segments overlapping on other flash captures, more characters i get to delete from my control group....

    you see... THIS is old school hash calculating by reversing the code.... eventually you will have several lines of code which are 100% different on every full capture.... THAT CODE, is then used as a kind of reverse captain crrunch decoder ring..... you plug in some common fixed variables.... until you locate a set or maybe 10 sets that all produce the same exact "value tables" as i call them.... but more formally, the ALGORITHM that when applied , generates the exact number of characters required in a valid AUTH token, and then you plug that result into a blanked pre-formed response packet then replay or inject it via a script with the timing set for the correct intervals... and PRAY that you didnt miss some little variable way earlier which breaks your entire data set!.... (normally this doesnt happen.... but 9 out of 10 times i also dont have to work this hard to strip the tables from the encrypted packet. I usually have SEVERAL different attack platforms... or devices... game consoles.... files.... whatever it is that all are locked by the same apparatus, so i can generate much less collections of the info being sent between the Challenge and the Response packets.

    think of it like this.... if you have to pick a barrel lock, but rather than force it open and damaging it, you instead opt to forge a master key...

    to do this you would either need a model of the working key.... (like having the signature given to you... which isnt gonna happen...) OR you would need to get as many different keys that FIT the lock, as you can find...

    Once you have a solid control set, ( copies of all of the keys that engaged at least 1 pin inside the tumbler without twisting or manipulation.... all of the tumblers pins MUST be engaged for the key to spin the lock to OPEN)

    If you have 20 keys that all engage at least 1 pin... then you group them off by which pin they set... and now you have the ability to compare those in each group and find the matching cuts in the key. The more you have , the more you have to examine! The more you examine, the more you will find keys that overlap into other groups because some keys will engage more than 1 pin ..... now you get to eliminate ENTIRE GROUPS cuz u only need the one that matches 1 pin in multiple sets....

    the goal is to get at least 10 grooves / cuts identified, so you can record the location and measurement of each working pin setting... depth... size and width of the groove... ( on lets say a Coke machine, it has a barrel (tumbler) lock that protects the money collector. Those usually have 10-set cuts in the barrel key ... you need all 10 cuts to be precise or the lock wont budge. BUT if you have 10 keys that each engage 1 different pin in the lock, you can map out the position, depth, and cut needed for each pin, and forge them onto a blank uncut barrel key using nothing more than a rotary tool and a diamond tip engraving bit.

    once all your results are transferred onto the blank then you should be able to push it in the lock and turn the key with ease!

    well the EXACT same idea structure works when cracking mathematical algorithms ...

    in this case, having NOTHING but hundreds of copies of the same key will not help, as you need MORE different keys to isolate perfect segments, and eliminate garbage. well i actually have 2 keys... but 1 of them is being blocked from testing, by an immortal bouncer named T-Mobile Bootloader Lock!

    ( i dont know if humor helps other ppl relate to something, but it works wonderfully for me!)

    umm... ok..... so does anyone here have an OTP credit to spare for flashing? Like either you already purchased an OTP token, and have finished your repair but your token still has more time left!! Or preferred a brand new OTP so i can bust another 24nrs research into this tool. I gotta make something happen ASAP with this stupid phone, or Im selling it and the 10T this weekend and moving on. But i cannot continue owning a device that SOMEONE ELSE is in control of. Oppo... Oneplus... BBK.... or anyone else will NOT hold dominion over what and when i can or cannot do to a device i spent my cash on. NO ONE! I re-affirm my commitment to taking down this companies antiquated , 1860's rules which run similar to something abolished in 1865. Sorry for the bad comparison coming next, but im gonna borrow a familiar mantra to make my point.... "My phone... my right to choose what i do with it!" Until these LORD OF THE MOBILE PHONE industries, start GIVING US the phones , and THEY pay the monthly bill to our carriers, then they have ZERO RIGHT to tell me what i can do to my phone.

    Would you go buy a new outfit is the store said, "Here you go.... now you cannot wear any under garments that are not _____ with these, and no shoes that arent _____ . If you do the outfit will just fall apart and you wont be able to fix it, unless you bring it back here, and we will make it work again, but bring the approved accessories only!"

    What about if you bought a new Samsung tv, and the Best Buy employee said, "Thanks sir/ma'am, but there are a few stipulations you need to follow now that you bought this already. Absolutely NO comedy movies or anything with political humor is allowed to be watched. Period. You can ONLY watch SAMSUNG approved movies and tv shows that the CEO of Samsung, YOUR NEW LORD AND SAVIOR, has deemed acceptable. The big bang theory has been rated as unapproved and your tv will black out any attempt to watch shows with any of the original cast members in it. This is for your own safety, and if its discovered that you connected any unauthorized player device that allowed those or any other show, our lord does not approve of, we will deactivate your tv and you will then have to send it back to the factory IN CHINA, so we can decide of the fee to restore it back to default! .... All hail Samsung / Trachanon!"

    Last time i checked there wasnt any car dealerships that said.... "Thanks, we hope you enjoy your new _____ SUV. Now remember No KIDS... Pets... High PDA couples, or ANY in-laws allowed inside. And you cant put plain ol Racetrac , Shell , Conoco , etc Gas in it. You MUST ONLY put gas from our dealership in it. Doesnt matter if its similar octane or whatever. OUR GAS, OIL, ACCESSORIES, approved patrons, and PARTS, that must be from OUR DEALERSHIP ONLY, or your car will die and we dont have to service it because our computer will show us that you ignored our orders! SWEAR YOUR ALLEGIANCE TO TRACHANON NOW HUMAN! And have a blessed day.... buh bye!"

    TUCK FHIS! I am done letting anyone tell me what i am allowed to do with the thing i paid for, in full! And i refuse to go from ONE company with MAFIA LIKE control over its repair tool, right to ANOTHER person/company who parades control of my device over my head! ... I never signed any agreement giving this control, and for ANYONE who says, "thats what you get for buying Oneplus.... NAME ONE OTHER ONEPLUS SERIES OF PHONE PRIOR TO THE 10pro/T/R that had this overbearing, control on it? You CANT.... Every 9,8,7,6,5.... Nord..... ALL prior to 2022 have had both an MSM DOWNLOAD tool that you could use FOR FREE, to unbrick or interchange fw.... and EVERY ONE OF THEM had access to a normal Fastboot, bootloader that you could obtain an unlock for! Plus last time i checked, there STILL isnt a disclaimer on the 10 Pro/T/R sales listings that discloses, "No free repair software is available, and your ability to customize your phone outside of what we approve is forbidden and we removed your access to do so!"

    So I ask again.... DOES ANYONE HAVE A SPARE OTP TOKEN CREDIT FOR THE MSM DOWNLOAD TOOL, THAT I MAY PLEASE USE WITH YOU? Once you have logged in, you can send me a dm with the Token, and it wont interrupt your access. But I need this for continued research in breaking the restrictions from the program. I have partially decrypted the signing algorithm, but my access to the program has been limited, and i MUST get either a Oppo Login / Password.... or an OTP to continue.

    I will not leak your login details to anyone, and you can literally ask any member here if i have ever done so!

    Building a working FREE tool is very time consuming, and if no one is willing to cooperate and pledge some form of assistance with gathering the data i can only acquire by doing full traces of complete flashes... then i will have to abandon this mission entirely and dump these Oneplus phones entirely. I dont wanna do that but i cannot continue being told how and when i can use the program. My time is MY TIME, and if someone WANTS something from me, then i need access to the program so i can work on this. So this might be my last post on this specific forum. I hope its not!

    Snoochie Boochies
    I sent you credit buds

    Don't sweat it y'all... I thought about it and it just made me remember how bummed I was when someone who was doing some serious work, trying to break the bootloader of the Samsung Note 8, had an encounter like this and he walked away like I was gonna .. then sure enough later when he broke it, he let his close buds have it, but everyone else was in the dark for a CPL months. Being that I know how that feels, I am just not that person.

    But I will let it be known that YES I understand the business principle of it... But EVENTUALLY it's gonna get even worse than it is now. I knew at least 5 indian guys who were doing remotes, and also selling otp tokens... And now 2 weeks later they don't even reply on the telegram room THEY made! So no one is making "f.u. money" off this ... And hell... Even the WEBSITES that sell them aren't responding. Business cannot be that great cuz no one is trying to get a sale! Either the well has dried up, or everyone has listened to our warnings here and on the sites that link us, and they are all doing Official updates only. And I've heard the OP11 rollout in China is FLOPPING!... (NICE) the 11 seems just as locked down as my 10T! So I'm still in Oppo hating mode .. I will work on this, but for now I am stuck, cuz I can't get a valid login... And something has changed again , (which I was expecting)... Because the Oppo sites are not even providing a new InDeptTest app for Android 12 or 13!.. so Oppo is targeting Developers, cuz if NO android 12 or 13 Oppo phones can get the bootloader unlock app, and they are hitting all the recent phones with this, then that is a direct hit on developers!

    They seriously need a leadership change... But whatever. I need access to the MSM hopefully soon, cuz I think they are about to pull the plug on Remote flashing, and off site logins.
    But I was informed I can share a few screens with y'all... So gimme an hr to look at the ones I can't share, and I'll post some pics ... Maybe seeing them will activate a few more of you, in trying to pick apart this phone...

    Bear in mind the pics are all from a 10T.. but the intents exist on both models!...

    TBC..

    I found out how to bypass the login prompt. Whether or not the tool will actually work is yet to be determined.
    I don't have a oneplus 10 pro, but would be really curious if this works for anyone.
    In order to avoid potential legal issues, and so you don't have to trust any files I upload, here are the instructions to crack the msm login...

    Using a download from the previously-linked rar, you should have a copy of 'MsmDownloadTool.exe'
    Use 7-zip to open the exe as an archive, and extract all the files into a new folder.
    Open 'FTGUIDev.exe' with a hex editor (HxD is good)
    Find the hex value '0f84e7000000b8'
    Replace the 84 with an 85

    Save the modified exe and launch it.
    Choose a server other than 'in company'
    Put whatever for userID/Password/Verify, click login.


    I hope this is useful.

    BTW... I am STILL in need of someone to share me access to a MSM Tool account that is active... Again... i dont care if its a guest account... or regular. You can change your password 12 hours after you give me the login info.... I am VERY close to being able to spoof an authentication, and signature response back to the phone in order to allow generic flashing of the 2213, 2215, and 2217. I just need to do about 2, maybe 3 more flashes, an hour between each, so i can decipher the algorithm that generates the token for the response. I have 9... i need 12, as they are partially calculated by a timestamp. So ANYONE who can help me with an account that is active, and maybe it is close to expiring anyways, please DM me, with the info to gain access.

    I am working under an authenticated letterhead, permissions document sent to me by Qualcomm, which completely supercedes ANY legal action brought forth by Oneplus/Oppo/BBK. The letter expressly provides me permission to use any of the tools/functions which are originated/derived from a Qualcomm Tool in any fashion. MSM is written and designed by qualcomm. I am permitted to use whatever, in the "Research, and Penetration Testing, of any and all protocols called upon by a function of any process that begins in a device with a qualcomm chipset.!"

    They make the MSM Tool... but access to the servers which are used to flash each qualcomm device is controlled by their respective manufacturers.

    Hello all, i am here to leak OPPO tech tool that allows one plus 10 pro to be flashed. Sadly i cannot share login but if you are able to bypass login screen the tool does not need to authenticate with server to flash device in EDL mode. Attached is screen shot of login screen and file. The tool picks up device in EDL mode and allows user to select the OPF file associated for device (please note you must have this downloaded externally ideally from msm tool for your device)

    I wish you luck bypassing this login and fixing your phones.

    I looked around for any Firehose loaders that had this getsigndata/verify.
    Only OnePlus and Oppo.
    The solution seems clear: don't buy them.

    OTOH, Lenovo/Motorola has signed loaders with restrictions.
    You can't read most partitions.
    The solution seems clear: don't buy them.

    GOOD GOOD... Thats what i like to hear from my Android Brethren !! Hack, Crack, Disassemble, and Attack the weaknesses of these infernal devices !!! (I need sleep!) ... Sorry, im stuck in some medieval, warfare mindset .. my bad! lol...

    BUT heres what i came for: Humor me.....

    IN THEORY... considering that EVERY post on the internet regarding DIAG mode on phone, (including IOS!) has started with the same goal.... "Using Root access, to enable Diag for access to the EFS" .... So basically everyone is saying that at the time... ROOT was horse... and Diag was the finish line! ... Right? Cuz thees guys were trying to hack bootloaders that had no accessible interface. And DIAG was their answer every time... and it worked! (Mostly)....

    What i am proposing is NOT trying to hack the bootloader, because i already know how to crack that... But if it used to be a REQUIREMENT that to even discuss DIAG, you must have Root.... Then can ANYONE HERE put together a way, in which I could REVERSE that process.... or at least leverage DIAG MODE, to get myself a Root Shell.... or alter the SUID or even outright set a new user, as "UID 0" ... temporarily even if i can only force 1 app to see my account as SYSTEM, so that i can get RW access to Build.prop, or Local.Prop ?? Then i can make 1 flag change in it that will snowball me right thru the security and into the bootloader!

    I mean as Diag I can literally DELETE the phone's whole identity! No imei.. no baseband... no modem... no mac address.. by the access i have to the EFS... and you cant even directly access that partition with ROOT ... only DIag and EDL have that authority! So imho there HAS TO BE a way to leverage a lower permission level thru some kind of console, where i can indirectly make a change to the build.prop. And i dont care if it Bricks the device 5 minutes later, cuz i am gonna make my change be locked with a persistent property that is already in place! It just needs a 1 in place of a 0, or an alternate access point which is also persistent, and just needs one word added to the line! Either way, if the phone bricks right after for some security violation, i will still have enough access to break the secure chain of trust and make my flags permanent! So if i have to pay for a flash to restore my phone, so be it... i know that the two things i edit survived an edl flash several times already!

    I really need EVERYONE ON DECK for this... cuz getting this done will cut at least 50% of the work i need to build us an MSM - Mafia FREE edition. Im talking to the guys who still think UP UP DOWN DOWN LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT B A Start, is a goof cheat code! As well as the people who can walk past an ATM machine, wave their hand in front of it, and 100's start spitting out like a money shooter... Yall cannot tell me that the Apple guys are better than us r/n ... cuz literally every time a new IOS drops... in less than a few days 3+ randos release videos as POC of them successfully gaining TFP0 , which is the IOS equivalent of ROOT.... I refuse to believe that the 17 y/o kid wearing a fedora, and a neckerchief, as they are walking up to the Starbucks counter to order their Venti Chai Mocha Latte..... NO .... I DO NOT ACCEPT THAT VISUAL! To me that worse than walking in on your parents smashing on top of the dining room table! ... at least then i know that they were making each other happy! ... But "Smuggy McMasterson III" strutting up to buy a lawn garden coctail from a coffee shop, while feeling all "chipper" cuz his team found a Kernel Memory Leak in 'IOS whogivesacrap beta 4' ... yet we cant find one privilege escalation, is the stuff of my nightmares!

    YALL DONT WANNA GIVE ME NIGHTMARES DO YOU!!! I THOUGHT WE WERE FRIENDS!!!

    FRIENDS DONT LET FRIENDS GET HANDLED BY A CRAPTASTIC BOOTLOADER, ,GUARDED BY 1 FLAG! COME ON!
