Let’s rescue/unbrick our OnePlus One, 2 and 3 series, including OnePlus X, from any brick you may think of. Not very long, about 1.5 years ago, everyone was afraid of Qualcomm HS-USB Qdloader 9008 brick situations like death, because many didnt knew what that was, as a port. This is Qualcomm’s so called “service” port that we use to fix our phones with a proper ROM. This port can be manualy opened, or if you do something wrong like deleting your phone’s boot partitions accidently, sbl1.mbn for example, that port opens itself and waits you to flash with right Qualcomm flasher software, in the right way, with the right kind of ROM.
As someone who has been working on these “brick” cases since the past 2 years, I sometimes willingly brick a phone to death first, then unbrick it again, this takes less time in many brands, like today’s example, OnePlus series.
OnePlus is a “developer” phone in the first place. What does that mean ? This means your bootloader can be unlocked with a simple fastboot command and you are ready to “develop” ROMs or apps. This means OnePlus won’t be out of warrantee if you “root” it, as rooting and unlocking the bootloader freely are a part of being a developer phone. Thanks to OPPO, yes you read right– OnePlus One was an identical twin of the Oppo Find 7 series from inside, we are able to find “unbrick” roms of these developers phones since a while. Oppo Find 5 was the first model as an example of this story. Actually I am the first one in the world who has unbricked OnePlus One from a death brick ( i like to call this a coma brick ), from Qualcomm HS-USB Diagnostics 9006. My two articles “Snapdragon’s are UNBRICKABLE” has been read by 450,000 readers around the world in a year.
