    @inffy please share the flashable rom zip with @gotovamsee

    I just got a opo and I can not get it to stay in fastboot mode. It is the first version 64 gig, usb debugging is on and drivers installed. 12.0-YNG1TAS213 is currently installed, I want to root it and install a recovery and rom. I downloaded the OPO toolkit

    edit:wrong board

    Basically you need to follow the custom recovery post carefully.
    After the TWRP flash the force boot should happen using
    fastboot flash recovery op2-twrp.img

    The boot in TWRP would only happen if the flash was successfull.

    Make sure you have USB debugging enabled from developer options once again.


    > Download the TWRP recovery file (Recovery TWRP.img) and SuperSU

    > Transfer the root package file (SuperSU) to OnePlus 2.

    > On PC, rename the TWRP file to this name: op2-twrp.img

    > Boot your OnePlus 2 into bootloader mode. Just follow the first paragraph there. (Make sure you have backed up all important data as you’ll lose everything on phone in the steps below.)

    > Connect your OnePlus 2 — in bootloader mode — to PC. Let the driver install.

    Open a command window on your PC in the folder where you have the op2-twrp.img file.

    You will see a command window open up, with location directed to folder where you have the op2-twrp.img file.

    Let’s confirm whether fastboot is working. With OnePlus 2 connected to PC, run the following command in command window. You should get a serial no. with fastboot written after it. If not, you need to reinstall the fastboot drivers from above.

    fastboot devices

    > Flash TWRP recovery on your OnePlus 2 by running the following command.

    fastboot flash recovery op2-twrp.img

    > Boot TWRP recovery on your OnePlus 2 now. For this, run the following command.

    I think I found the issue, after I run fastboot oem unlock then run the info command once complete, device tampered is showing as false.

    All drivers are installed and I've followed all steps before hand.

    I'm using Windows 10, could this be the issue?

    Might be that your boot partition is somewhat corrupted.Wait for Funk's opinion.If that doesn't work,try my unbrick OnePlus 2 guide.

    I see that the ABD is not properly installed... check by typing .. ADB Devices in fastboot.. does it shows your device key. If it does not... then either try reinstalling the drivers or use Mac or Linux... both support ADB out of the box.
