if they would charge me a huge amount i just let them send it back and let you know.
i wouldnt pay too much, and since bootloader and fastbootd and the recovery menu still works i dont give up on that phone
Just discovered on the android guide how to get all the partition of the phone (fastboot getvar all) and how to create them on fastbootd, so if only I had my NP(1) available for testing maybe we could found out the problem... sorry for discovering it just now lol. Looking forward to complete 100% the flash tool

Hello guys!
As I wrote on other threads, these some tools that I wrote in order to download, extract and flash the firmware of the NP1 via fastboot. Check them out! And feel free to contribute!

Windows tool ?

Not sure why, odm wasn't working for me either, tried "fastboot --force flash super odm.img" and it worked, same for system_ext but for vendor product and system, they went through 1/3, 2/3 and 3/3 but still no boot

because they aren't super img. A super image file would have made way easier the flash of the phone but actually there isn't a super.img available. I hope I can test the flash on the phone ASAP (mine currently is out for a display issue).

A super.img is an image that can be flashed directly to the super partition. It automatically bundles the contents of logical partitions, meaning it contains system.img, vendor.img, and so on

I don't think that I can do anything at this point. Probably is something about a/b slots... I need to do some testing with my np(1) when it'll return from repair. For now thanks for everything! If you have time please write this command fastboot getvar all and look for current-slot and paste here the result.
Current slot for mine is B but I tried switching to A, same result. Tried all your scripts, no one is working because of the super partition being untouchable. Everything that touches at vendor, system, product or odm doesn't work. I tried adb sideload from the recovery still not working, stops at 47%, when trying to flash system i guess, timestamp error, the phone thinks i'm downgrading and wont pass 47%.

I guess I'll have to wait for paranoid or twrp

Edit : Maybe MSM Tools like on the Oneplus would work?

MSM Tools (EDL Mode) should (must) work. We have to wait Nothing to release it

Carl twitted 1 hour ago about an update rolling out now, maybe we can flash it through sideload hoping that timestamp let us pass the 47%. Can someone share the zip file once out?

if it does please let me know, im currently waiting to get my phone back, either repaired or replaced i dont know yet, but a friend of mine has the same issue now, he waits to see what the provider or the shop say about a repair, how much it will cost

With the new 1.1.3 update full package, same stop at 47% by sideload but not the same message : Error applying update : 7 (ErrorCode::kInstallDeviceOpenError)
E:Error in /sideload/package.zip (status 1)

I' don't really know what to do now, time for a new search about this error I guess...
