It is very obviously listed on the website under the other roms.
OK , maybe ... But we are here to help each other with infos , tutorials , tips , or whatever . All those must be straight away correctly linked to primary sources to see and verify those infos . This guy said something like I saw something , I know it but I don't want to share ! Look for it !
This is not the right way to help a lot of desperate people who bricked their phone . It's stupid and insane behaviour of him .

If you're worried about it, check it out on QFIL.
I haven't checked the operation, though.
 
Working HYDRA V2 EDL Cable.
I'm also getting some information on partitions on QFIL.
Can you call this a joke?

    Hi Alex1911 - can you pls clarify a few things:

    1) Firstly you went to fastbootd mode (bootloader) and not the regular fastboot mode (download) Right?

    2) Your active slot was a (checked through fastboot getvar current-slot) right?

    3) You flashed in slot b (which was inactive) and then rebooted and it worked?

    4) Or you had to make slob b active (using fastboot set_active b) ?

    Confused as you wrote that "manually changed the active slot to b again"

    Many thanks
    Hello ^^

    1. I rebooted to fastbootd, via the command "adb reboot fastboot" (when your phone is booted in Nothing OS connect via USB to your Pc with ADB (Enable USB-Debugging)

    2. i did not check the slot, it would not let me check it in normal fastboot (commands locked?). use "flash-slot-b.bat" only
    a-slot is somehow not flashable even if its there.

    3. i can't clarify if it was "the inactive slot" but it worked.

    4. sorry i can't remember. I think you can change slots via fastbootd which should happen after flash.

    I hope i could clarify it for you, if not, i'm wiling to help you out.
    I try to remind how exactly i did the procedure.

    Best Regard's

    Thanks @Alex1911 for your reply.

    Is your phone bootloader unlocked?

    In my case, my phone has bootloader unlocked, I can flash to slot a without issues hence was wondering how you did the same to slot b?

    I also read that never flash to inactive slot (b in my case) without making it active else it will lead to bootloop and hence want to be sure.

    Hence asking again...

    Also what you mean, when you said "manually changed the active slot to b again"

    Thanks again for your time..

    My phones bootloader is unlocked but critical partitions is still locked -> no need to unlock

    command to change slots: fastboot set_active a or fastboot set_active b
    EDIT: Switching slots via fastbootd did not work for my

    So if you get a bootloop try to switch slot via normal fastboot, this is what i did after flashing a slot where i got a bootloop from, so you maybe can do the opposite.

    For short: if you use a fastboot rom flashed via fastboot or fastbootd it always should boot up, if not there could be a bigger Problem or you then need another solution for example: EDL.

    Best Regard's

    Finally was able to update to 1.5.2 via fastboot method

    In my case, previously has 1.5.1 beta hotfix and all updater methods were failing with Error 20

    I booted to fastboot and checked for active slot using fastboot getvar current-slot and found that slot a is active.

    So I went and flashed the fastboot package to slot b (inactive one) and then rebooted. The rom flashed well and it successfully booted.

    Rebooted back to fastboota and when I typed fastboot getvar current-slot found that slot b was active now.

    So the learning is that - for updates, ideally we need to flash to inactive slot and then it should be activated automatically.

    Please confirm if the listed rom for
    Nothing Phone(1) Fastboot ROM v1.5.3
    is for global or EEA?
    Since v1.5.1, Global and EEA are integrated and common.

    Update! : 2023/03/23 4:46 (UTC+9:00)
    Fastboot ROM and boot.img for NothingPhone(1) are now available. v1.5.3(HotFix) is available.
    Sorry for my poor English, I'm Japanese...

    News: The DSU has been restored in this version. It seems to be usable as long as it is non-root.🎉

    The content of this site has been changed because Global and EEA have merged. (Global)" section is for Global only.
    I think v1.5.1 or later can be used for all types.

    I selfishly want the EEA version.(White..!)
    I'd like to do some verification and such.


    Attention!
    This fastboot ROM requires 'fastboot flashing unlock' and 'fastboot flashing unlock_critical'(Option)!

    Add QFIL ROM (⚠EDL Command or EDL Cable V1/V2 Required)

    I haven't tried it myself; there is Firehose, so you can use it however you like.

    You were integrating.
    Well, I'll change it so that we can use it in common later.
