#2) yes, it should continue to work fine, you'll flash your current modem back in anyway (if android 11 or 12, some say 13 works) Be sure to backup modemst1/2 to be safe. Multiple users report success with Tmo mvno working just fine all across.Hello everyone,
I am new here - I bought the LE 2127 by mistake as I was going to try and de-Google the OnePlus 9 Pro by flashing Lineage OS. So I have a few questions that I hope someone will answer as I am not a developer but learning every day. I have already downloaded and used adb & fastboot on to my Pop OS laptop and taken out quite a few google apps including the Play store and replaced it with MicroG and my banking app works just fine. I get the occasional error with Signal, but it still works. My concern with the OnePlus is a Chinese backdoor? Anyone know about that and if there is one on this model?
Here are my questions:
1. Are you guys in the US? I am in the southeast.
2. Changing the LE2127 to LE2125, will that work with Mint?
3. Once I follow the directions and change to the LE2125 - I should be able to switch to another Custom OS? Like Lineage, right? The LE2125 is the last model they support.
4. Would I be de-Googled with OOS or do I have to re-de-google the phone again...
Mostly, what are the benefits of switching to LE2125 if you keep Oxygen; just getting rid of the T-Mobile apps? As I said, I am a total beginner, so any advice would be amazing.
#3) yes, you should be able to.
#4) you will have to re-de-google because you'll be going from Tmo to EU using the MSM tool, it's a clean slate and like-new state.
The first benefit is flashing Tmo->EU allows you to unlock the bootloader without the OnePlus Token site. You can unlock it the traditional way. Neither way requires the sim to be unlocked but it's certainly more convenient than waiting a week.
I would recommend submitting to OnePlus Token site just to have the backup option/unlock token bin that matches your device. I submitted mine and immediately flashed to EU and unlocked. Then when I flashed back to Tmo, I verified the unlock worked either way.
And the cruise over to global/other roms.
The other benefit is not having any of tmobile's bloatware, animations, and preventing automatic updates. I don't know 100% for the 9P but the Tmo 7TP5GME, they force the update, you can't prevent it by postponement. Having root and unlocked bootloader also didn't prevent the update from happening. I've since read that the Tmo variants can push the update and restart (so you lose root because you can't go flash magisk boot OTA back to inactive slot). Others who weren't yet to the maximum postponement amount would block the download servers in Hosts with root and avoid it that way
