Hi everyone, similar to the previous threads for
OP3, OP3T, OP5, OP5T, OP6, OP6T and OP7, here are the EDL packages (also known as MSM tool or unbrick tool) that can revive a bricked OnePlus 7 Pro.
They can also be used to rollback your phone to a previous release of OOS.

GM1910, GM1911, GM1913 and GM1917 models are supported.

Here are the files uploaded on AndroidFileHost ordered by Android version and firmware your device will be restored to:

GM21AA tools (international firmware):


GM21BA tools (european firmware):

ANDROID 9:


ANDROID 10:


ANDROID 11:


Mirror for first and last MSMs per Android version: https://onepluscommunityserver.com/


Instructions:

Power your device off
Maintain volume up and volume down keys to get into Qualcomm EDL mode.
Launch MsmDownloadTool V4.0.exe.
Click on Enum to be sure your device is detected and press Start.
Wait ~300 seconds
Enjoy your brand new device

FAQ:

My device isn't detected when I click on "Enum" button

Go to device manager and make sure your phone shows up as QDLOADER 9008.
If it shows up as QHUSB_BULK, it means Qualcomm driver wasn't installed automatically by Windows Update. Download the latest one from Microsoft website at http://download.windowsupdate.com/c..._fba473728483260906ba044af3c063e309e6259d.cab (source https://www.catalog.update.microsof...updateid=8ee52ba0-bdef-4009-88cf-335a678dd67a ) and install it manually by right clicking on QHUSB_BULK and selecting "Update driver software" and "Browse my computer for driver software" to where you downloaded CAB file.

My device doesn't stay in EDL mode for more than 10 seconds

Some units can have this problem and there isn't a lot of things to do to fix that, except being fast after plugging your phone to your computer.

There is however apparently a "one-off" solution to this problem available at https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=80021106&postcount=21 . I would like to investigate more on that but sadly don't own the device so can't confirm it.

MSM tool is stuck on "Param pre-processing"

Ensure you're using the Qualcomm drivers linked in first part of this FAQ.

What is SMT Download mode?

Just don't try to unlock that mode, it will wipe your IMEI and your Widevine certificate if you use it.

Some_Random_Username, first Thank you very much!
It needs this ?
1) Open Command Prompt (CMD) as administrator and input the following commands:
"bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS" then "bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON"
(don't forget to flip those back to ENABLE and OFF after you're done)

If yes, put it in instructions, so users don't ask you why windows pc don't instal Qualcom drivers .

If you're getting an error about the drivers being unsigned then yes but, if you're using Windows 10, you can do the same thing by using the recovery reboot options.

The Qualcomm drivers published on Microsoft Update website are digitally signed so disabling driver signature enforcement and enabling Windows test mode shouldn't be needed to install them. Thanks though.


As stated in FAQ, I don't have passwords to open 9.5.10 and 9.5.11 GM21BA msm tools (which come from OnePlus support) but however do have the passwords for 9.5.10 and 9.5.11 GM21AA files (which I am the first one to share decrypted).
If you have some time and some hardware that allows it, don't hesitate to try to bruteforce so that users could eventually get decrypted versions of the BA tools.

Do you mean the device manager from the pc? If so, where exactly I can find my device, because I was looking at it, before I will try it with MSM. The reason i´m asking is, because I cannot find one of the above mentioned.

Yes. You can launch it by launching Run, entering
Code:
devmgmt.msc
and pressing Enter key.
QDLOADER 9008/QHUSB_BULK should be under COM ports section when your device is in EDL mode and plugged to your PC
