Hi,

this tutorial is an translation from german. Al credits to x.wolverine.x from Android Hilfe.

prerequisite:

1.) activate developer options
2.) enable Bootloader-Unlock
3.) download and install ADB und fastboot (minimal adb & fastboot)
4.) latest usb driver (Support - Aquaris X5 Plus <== Drivers, Drivers & Tools)
5.) download TWRP BQ Aquaris X5 Plus (gohan)
6.) download SuperSu

Let's do it (You do everything at your own risk!):

1.) boot to fastboot -> shutdown your device -> press on/off + "-" Volumekey -> device restarts to white screen fastboot mode

2.) connect to your pc via usb cable

3.) start command shell and check for phone
"fastboot devices"

4.) do the unlocking -> Attention: unlocking the bootloader does a full-wipe!!!
"fastboot oem unlock-go"

5.) boot TWRP
"fastboot boot twrp-3.0.2-0-gohan.img"

alternative flash permanent
"fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.0.2-0-gohan.img​" <- I did this finally, but for root only temp boot is enough.

6.) flash SuperSu with TWRP

Bye

Hi, i tried that and actually all these steps seem to go well. But after that i kind of bricked my phone.
Googling for hours brought it back via sudo fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
Im in desperate need of working firmware now ))

download lineageos org/paella >> is only for x5 not x5 plus

BQ seems not to have release a firmware online, the flashtool does not work as it complains that the phone is locked,

sudo fastboot oem unlock-go
...
OKAY [ 0.000s]
finished. total time: 0.000s
but no effect (((

fastboot oem device-info

sudo fastboot oem device-info
...
(bootloader) Device tampered: false
(bootloader) Device unlocked: true
(bootloader) Device critical unlocked: false
(bootloader) Charger screen enabled: true
(bootloader) Display panel:
OKAY [ 0.005s]
finished. total time: 0.005s

the firmware at shenron bq com/ otas/ 2016/SM...8976_gohan__user_-_20170109-134157_update.zip does not get installed, it gives an error

so does storage googleapis com /otas...BQ/1.6.0_20161229-1655-gohan-user-1047-FW zip

Hi,

if still needed, try this:

1.) Download current firmeware (1.6.0) from bq.
2.) unzip the file
3.) boot to fastboot -> shutdown your device -> press on/off + "-" Volumekey -> device restarts to white screen fastboot mode
4.) connect your phone with your computer (USB-Cabel)
5.) start "cmd" (on windows)
6.) navigate to unzip location (for example: C:\dev\BQ\Aquaris_X5_Plus-bq-1.6.0_20161229-1655-gohan-user-1047-FW)
7.) run "8976_fastboot_all_images.bat" <-this will flash the complete firmeware, complete reset (DATA / RECOVERY - ALL!!)

hello there,

I want to flash a new rom to this device but i can't start the phone anymore because it's asking for an old google account that was log into it.In this case i can't acces the phone and activate developer mode and unlock bootloader option.If i try to unlock bootloader with BQ Firmware update tools it say me to add a file to unlock bootloader,but i don't have such a file.
Can you upload a file to unlock bootloader or It's any other way to disable bootloader with fastboot command??

Hi,

1.) flash actual firmeware with BQ-Flashtool
2.) access dev options
3.) unlock bootloader

    Hi,

    this tutorial is an translation from german. Al credits to x.wolverine.x from Android Hilfe.

    prerequisite:

    1.) activate developer options
    2.) enable Bootloader-Unlock
    3.) download and install ADB und fastboot (minimal adb & fastboot)
    4.) latest usb driver (Support - Aquaris X5 Plus <== Drivers, Drivers & Tools)
    5.) download TWRP BQ Aquaris X5 Plus (gohan)
    6.) download SuperSu

    Let's do it (You do everything at your own risk!):

    1.) boot to fastboot -> shutdown your device -> press on/off + "-" Volumekey -> device restarts to white screen fastboot mode

    2.) connect to your pc via usb cable

    3.) start command shell and check for phone
    "fastboot devices"

    4.) do the unlocking -> Attention: unlocking the bootloader does a full-wipe!!!
    "fastboot oem unlock-go"

    5.) boot TWRP
    "fastboot boot twrp-3.0.2-0-gohan.img"

    alternative flash permanent
    "fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.0.2-0-gohan.img​" <- I did this finally, but for root only temp boot is enough.

    6.) flash SuperSu with TWRP

    Bye
