Well, I finally took the leap today. Just a few odds and ends to report:

1. The "fastboot" method of restoring to stock did not work. It got me into "Qualcomm Crashdump Mode" and I ended up having to MSM back anyway.
2. There are a couple of times you need to reboot to recovery that may not have been covered.
3. sideloading the copy-partitions ZIP is essential before you flash anything else in the Nameless recovery.
4. I was going to see if OrangeFox recovery would work, but I decided not to risk it. Has anyone been braver than me?

I have a few small bugs. For example, the live display sometimes doesn't work on the lock screen and the re-ticker notifications don't always work either. Otherwise everything works fine :)

Hello, thank you for this great ROM. I used fastboot installer to install the latest version. Everything I use works great. I am only sorry that there is no complete translation for my native Czech language. Can I ask the developers to enable TM (translation memory) on crowdin? My friend would be willing to finish the translation then. Thank you


My procedure was the MSM tool for the A11, then a local update to the latest European A12 C21, and finally I created a fastboot installation in both slots for Nameless.

Latest OrangeFox 12.1 beta 3 flashed works fine on the latest Nameless build (OOS12 fw)., but I aint sure if it breaks OTA or not. Sadly i wont probably get to test it out as i plan to return to OOS11 firmware, the lack of custom kernels makes the device slow af on my end, plus latest build is a little more buggy than usual

I am on OOS 12 C.21, flashed twice via local upload method. I am trying to flash this rom but from the stock oneplus recovery it is not possible to sideload packages via adb. Do I need another recovery?

I am following these instructions

Thank you

Well, I spoke too soon.

1. SwiftBackup flat out refused to restore my stuff. Fantastic :(
2. Magisk Hide doesn't work on the new Nameless. Everything still detects root, including the authenticator app I have to use to log in to my work network, etc. This is a show-stopper for me.

So, I'm reverting back to the OOS 11 - based Nameless I had before. Hopefully, I can get most of my stuff and functionality back.

I used this method to hide root and it works :

https://www.droidwin.com/how-to-hide-root-from-apps-via-magisk-denylist/

and https://www.droidwin.com/how-to-pass-safetynet-on-rooted-android-12/
(the first link will point to the second one anyway)
Note that for STEP 2 I used Nexus 6P, as shown in the guide, even though it was written KB2003 on my phone.

Flashed all the components but now I cannot enter recovery mode. It just boots back into fastboot. Turning off also doesn't work (also just boots back into fastboot mode). Any advice?

EDIT:
Ok after scanning this thread for a bit I found some useful advice (followed post #752). My mistake is that I downloaded an older version. The "latest version" button in the download link is actually NOT the latest. Click the one in the list below the button manually. Would be great if OP clarifies this in the instructions tbh.

Before you run the adb command, check adb devices first and make sure it says "sideload". For me sometimes it said unauthorized. Rebooting recovery and replugging the cable worked for me.

One more thing. For other MacOS / Linux users that couldn't use the provided payload_dumper. I used this guide and worked successfully using the python script.

I've mentioned the "download latest" button a few times now, unfortunate that nothing has been done about it. I suspect that most people couldn't install this new update due to that.

Shout out to MadMic #752
Your instructions are so clear I can't mess up.

Some tips for T-Mobile gang. Unlock bootloader while on OOS11. It'll ask for unlock token on OOS12

Now that orangefox works on a12.. a proper installation guide with orange fox would be great. Coming form a galaxy s4, rom flashing has changed a lot like really a lot and thanks to the devs for all the work you are awesome...😌

Enjoying the ROM for 2 days now.

But NFC is not working anymore. I can't turn it on in QS (button doesn't respond). When click on NFC in settings, this is all I see. I can't turn it on anywhere..

I'm on old nameless build (7/5/22) and I had a friend who had same build and a they did to update rom was skip to the flash firmware step.

Is this true or do I really need to follow all of those steps?

Well, I had a critical failure the other night. My phone freaked out, the display went dark, and I couldn't even get it to reboot itself by holding down the power button, nor with power+vol up+vol dwn, nor any other combo. I eventually had to hook up to a computer and then ADB reboot was able to get me back up and running. This was the 2nd time this has happened to me on Nameless ROM.

... and I just cannot have that. If I had been away from the house and needed to call 911, I'd have been screwed.

So .. I'm sorry, but it's back to OOS12 / rooted for me.

However, for those looking to do the upgrade, I suggest using FolderSync to back up your /storage/emulated/0 to somewhere off your device. It's easy to set up and restore, and you can schedule nightly backups of all your stuff. It only syncs what has changed, so after the initial dump, it's pretty quick. That way you can wipe your device and get all your stuff back after installing the new ROM.

Good luck, and thanks for all the hard work, devs.

    I went through this yesterday evening and hit many snags and confusions due to looking up different posts... So I thought I'd write down my process in the hope it helps others.

    Before you begin
    • Backup of all Data, Fully charged battery, really backup all your data
    • Know how to use Windows command prompt, move files and folders about in explorer (or know how to set the PATH variable)
    • Follow this guide at your own risk!

    Downloads

    Set-up
    1. Install ADB + QualCom drivers. Reboot is required
    2. To check, connect phone to PC, reboot phone to fastboot, check device manager for anything with a yellow "!". Then repeat when in recovery. If you have issues here Fix this BEFORE continuing

    On PC
    1. Extract Nameless ROM zip
    2. Extract payload extractor zip
    3. copy payload.bin from ROM to payload_input folder where you extracted payload dumper
    4. Command prompt -> run payload_dumper.exe (takes about 5 minutes)
    5. In the payload_output folder will be .img files. You'll need these later

    Roll phone back to Android 11 with MSM tool
    1. Follow msm guide: https://www.getdroidtips.com/oneplus-msm-download-tool/. Took 900s to complete
    2. Complete first boot setup sequence, don't restore any data, skip as must as you can. Don't perform system udpate. Stop apps updating.
    3. Install Oxygen Updater -> Download KB2003_11_C.21 (Android 12) ~3.88Gb
    4. Whilst that's happening: Enable Developer Mode, Enable OEM Unlocking, Enable USB Debugging
    5. Once download complete, copy the update .zip file from root of phone to your PC
    Unlock bootloader
    1. In command window: adb reboot fastboot
    2. In command window: fastboot reboot bootloader (as soon as you press enter to run the command type and run the next one so it's waiting)
      • fastboot oem unlock
    3. Accept the text menu and phone will reboot and wipes itself
    Update phone to Android 12
    1. Clear setup asap, bypass / skip / ignore all you can
    2. Copy downloaded oxygen update from PC to root of phone
    3. Local install using Oxygen download file (ignore the system update) + reboot
    4. Enable USB Debugging
    5. In command window: adb devices -> ensure you're authorised
    6. In command windows: adb reboot fastboot
    On PC
    1. In command window: open the payload_output folder (with the extracted .img files from earlier):
      • fastboot flash boot boot.img
      • fastboot flash --disable-verity --disable-verification vbmeta vbmeta.img
      • fastboot flash --disable-verity --disable-verification vbmeta_system vbmeta_system.img
      • fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    2. Use fastboot menus to reboot to recovery (new blue one)
    3. Press "Install update" -> "ADB Sideload"
    4. In command window: adb devices - ensure it says "sideload" and not "unauthorised"
    5. In command window: adb sideload copy-partitions-20210323_1922.zip
    6. Reboot recovery from menus on phone
    7. In command window: adb devices - ensure it says "sideload" and not unauthorised
    8. In command window: adb sideload Nameless-AOSP_kebab-12.1-20220723-1310-Official.zip
    9. Click back arrow in recovery, then click "Factory reset" -> "Format data/factory reset" -> "Format data"
    10. Click back arrow in recovery, then click "Reboot to system"
    If you miss a step and boot the phone it's likely not going to be stuffed. In this case, force it back to EDL mode (adb reboot edl) or hold the up + down volume buttons for ~40s and start with the MSM tool again.

    I've been reading through some pages on this thread and I see people are having issues with this ROM, I understand that's because old nameless builds were based off OOS11 and now it's based off OOS12? Therefore, if you're freshly installing this, then there's no issues to worry about?

    I ask because I am currently on Pixelexperience and that's been abandoned, I am not sure wherever to go on this ROM (which seems like it gets constantly updated) or just wait for LineageOS to come out for 8T.

    So if I was to go on this ROM, I'd have to flash OOS12, then flash Nameless?
    That's right. This worked for me (there may be other ways to do it):

    Make sure your adb and fastboot are up to date. Many problems are caused by outdated tools.

    First flash OOS11 with the MSM tool if needed, then do a local upgrade to OOS12. I found the OOS12 ROM here:

    Then flash Nameless following the instructions here (but read the note below!):

    Note: just before doing the adb sideload, sideload the copy-partitions.zip found here:

    It will copy the current partitions from the active slot to the inactive slot.

    Don't worry about the 47% in the instructions -- just sideload the Nameless ROM and wait for it to finish, then Format data/factory reset > Format data and reboot.

    I had this same problem, but I was able to get it to work. The trick is getting it to stay off long enough to use the vol up + vol down combination to enter edl mode. I pressed start on the msm tool, then fooled around with it for awhile, using the vol up + power to shut it down and then immediately using the combination to enter edl mode, and eventually it was detected by msm. It's just really finicky
    Thank you!
    Had tried holding down power to ensure it was off several times and either Vol up or Vol down with power did nothing and it continued to boot loop.
    However thanks to you holding Vol up + Vol down + power got me into fastboot weirdly
    I used fastboot set_active other (Thanks YehoshuaLee)
    Phone booted into system.

    Was seconds away from buying a Pixel 6, had already sent an email about getting an RMA to the retailer I bought the 8T from.

    This is simply the way to go!
    The best ROM for the OP8T! Thanks @chandu dyavanapelli for your great work! Please keep it up!

    How have you managed to install them rom? What did you do with the slots a/b?
    Here's what I did:

    Download MSM tool to convert to EU Android 11
    MSM Tool

    Enable Developer options and enable OEM unlocking.
    Enable USB Debugging
    Adb reboot bootloader

    Unlock bootloader with fastboot oem unlock

    Use oxygen updater to download the stable (full) update for oneplus8t (EU)
    Oxygen Updater

    Do a local upgrade to Android 12 with the downloaded update from oxygen updater

    Then follow the original instructions but remember to sideload the copy partitions file before the Nameless rom (see post #704)

    Make sure you download the correct Nameless AOSP Rom. When you click the download link in the main post, the big green download button is not the newest version.
    You want this one.

    That worked for me
