After lots of fighting with OnePlus about this, I finally managed to get my hands on the MSMDownloadTool and drivers for the Sprint variant of the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G.

USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!

To be honest, I was EXTREMELY tired while writing this, and need to get some sleep.
There are other posts explaining how to use this tool. I will update this thread with links to them when I have time.

Enjoy!

Oh, I also pulled all the partitions from my Sprint OP7 Pro 5G. If any recognized dev would like to take a look at them to see if we can't get this variant free from it's bondage, let me know.

Do you mind explaining how you accomplished this? I'd like to do a bit of poking around myself.

Know now that I am not posting this as an instructable for those that do not understand the sensitivity of the files that can be pulled through this method.

If you don't know how to accomplish any of the steps, you probably shouldn't be doing this. If you do pull partitions from your phone, do not share them with anybody you can not trust. Do not post them here, or anywhere for that matter.

If you are asked to help by providing partitions, do your research. Are they recognized developers? Have they helped other people? If you feel they can be trusted, then it is okay to share them.

1)Download MSMDownloadTool rar file

2)Start MSMDownloadTool with Admin Privileges

3)When MSMDownloadTool starts, hit F8

4)A screen with partitions will pop up
Select partitions you would like to pull, and input ”oneplus" as password.
Hit ok

You will notice now that a new "Read Back" button has appeared. DO NOT HIT IT YET!

5)Boot phone into EDL:
There are two methods of doing this with the OP7 Pro 5G.
1: ADB REBOOT EDL
2: Shut phone down with no USB plugged in, hold both vol up and vol down, then insert USB cable

6)AS SOON AS YOU SEE YOUR PHONE APPEAR IN THE TABLE, HIT "Enum" BUTTON, SELECT YOUR PHONE IN THE TABLE AND HIT "Read Back".

Note: If your phone disconnects before you have the chance to hit "Read Back" start back at step 5. Once Sahara starts reading, the phone will stay connected.

7)WAIT....

8)Once complete, your files can be found in the root of your system partition (The easiest way to collect them is to sort by "Date Modified")

9)Give yourself a tap on the back. BUT DON'T FORGET, there is sensitive information in the partitions.

Neat! Appreciate the lil mini-tutorial, should definitely help in my research efforts.

So none on the currently available Android 10 updates are compatible with the Sprint version? I wouldn't care if I lost 5G, it's not available in my area.

Not currently, unfortunately. Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure they patch the global ROM to work on T-Mobile devices. So, if that is indeed the case, we'd need to do the same to get it to work on Sprint, however that may work. People such as myself are looking into ways of remaining on stock ROM and unlocking the bootloader so you could retain 5G and all Sprint features. I worry that moving to Global would effect more than just 5G, since Sprint is a CDMA carrier, with things such as VoLTE/VoWiFi. I could be very wrong on this though, it's just baseless speculation. We won't know till we try! :p

How do you actually use this .rar file in the msmdownload tool? The file cannot be extracted, says it is damaged? I've tried downloading a few times with no luck

What are the steps to unbricking? Just plug in and press start? I'm about to try converting to EU and if it somehow messes up I don't want to be stuck. Being a noob with flashing sucks
