    Should I be worried about my EFS data before I unlock bootloader / flash TWRP and SuperSU? Or am I good to do those things? (not currently rooted)

    EFS backup is the 4th pointo_O You´re good to go but backup your EFS when you reach that point.

    if you have working phone, do EFS backup and unlock boot loader first, then do whatever you want.
    save EFS files in more than one location: pc, flash drive, etc. there are ways to recover EFS, but super hard and not always effective.

    I'm having quite a difficult time with this step. I'm on OOS 2.1.4 and I flashed SuperSU. I flashed this script with TWRP and the folder was created (/sdcard/EFS_Backups) with the ZIP files in there. They did not show up under any app or through PC, only TWRP. So I say, fair enough and move them to the Download folder. They now show up, but no app, cloud storage, or even transferring through Explorer will work. They all come up with Unknown Error, and I have no idea what to do. I have tried the commands listed and they ran fine, but I can't find the files in the sdcard folder, not even through TWRP. Any help please? I really don't want to move on to flashing Sultan without these backed up.

    Boot in recovery mode and connect opo via usb;
    On pc open a prompt and type "adb shell"
    Then type:
    dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p10 of=/sdcard/modemst1.bin bs=512
    dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p11 of=/sdcard/modemst2.bin bs=512
    sync && reboot
    In /sdcard you'll find the two files

    Hi, I can't create a thread because I'm here new so I wanted to ask for help here. My mom bought a OnePlus One a week ago, it had problem with SIM Card reading so we took it to the repair and they fixed it, specalist showed that everything is working with his EE SIM Card. Then mom tried her giffgaff/three networks cards, they both gave same error ''No Service'' we went to the repair again and they tried to do factory reset - no luck. Inserted EE card again - it starts working after few seconds. So we bought EE card, and it worked for us too. But my mom wanted to use SIM card from Three network so we went go home inserted the card and waited about 30 minutes and it started working but not for long. We went shopping and phone just showed No Service, until now it's same. Sometimes it gets signal, but my mom wanted to get signal everytime so I tried to flash CM13 nightlies and no luck. Can you help me? IMEI and baseband are good.

    Guys i have a very simple question.
    Back ago, I installed OxygenOS because it was being promoted via Oneplus FB, instructions were very simple and i was done in matter of minutes. Now, I've been all too tired of the bugs and issues for quite some time now, and want to switch back to official CM whichever it is, having it all stock back again.

    Is there a simply way to go back to CM as when I had switched to Oxygen?
