i'm having the same issue -- phone rebooted, bricked itself (wouldn't get past OnePlus logo), and now won't even boot into fastboot or recovery. PC recognizes device on COM4, shows Qualcomm 9008 drivers, but the unbrick tool stalls with Sahara communication failed error.

The sahara communication error and the firehose error can be fixed by holding down the power button and the volume + button for a few seconds.
I've got this entire process to work for me, but it does not unbrick the phone.
After it has completed the process tries to repeat itself.
The led is still light blue in colour and the phone does not respond.
What more can I do if the unbricking tool does not work and one plus is taking its time sending out the return label?

I'm facing the same problem. The process completed properly and the tool showed "Download complete" status in green but the phone neither rebooted itself nor responded when I tried to power it on. While charging, the LED notification is not glowing too.

My issue got fixed! It was a hardware issue, the eMMC probably got corrupted. Fortunately, my device was under warranty and OnePlus service center replaced the entire motherboard (worth 20K INR) free of cost within few hours. :)

Thanks to the OP for this post. BTW, after unbricking my phone, it fails to connect to the wifi. So after some research, I thought it might because of the firmware used to unbrick. So I download the latest 8.1 Firmware and flashed it via recovery after moving to the internal storage. And presto the wifi works and I have the latest firmware. SO 2 birds 1 stone. :)

I am using a 128gb version and able to install correctly and the tool shows download completed with no errors. but on reboot still get the same screen "Your device is corrupt. It can't be trusted and will not boot. Visit link: g.co/ABH". Any suggestions? (I have tried doing this 3-4 times now and every time the process completely successfully but still the device isn't restored)

This is a totally stock device, it got bricked while i was installing the latest over-the-air update notification that i got from OnePlus yesterday, during that install process it started showing this device is corrupt screen and now can't do anything, directly boots to this screen and stuck.

Hi, can someone upload this on a torrent website or some other file hosting service ? I'm having troubles downloading it always stops.

Uploading it on google drive would be great for instance.

Thanks !

I downloaded the tool and see the com device as QDLoader 9008. I verify and get MD5 Check Ok.

I click Start and 3 seconds later I get "images do not match with the phone"

I am on the 128 gb version.

Any idea how to fix it?

    What was the last installed version of OOS on your mobile. Can you please give 5.1.3 package a try and then manually upgrade to 5.1.4 => 5.1.5 => 5.1.6?
