Naman Bhalla, Jun 25, 2016 : Hello Everyone !! A hard bricked OP3 has nothing but a black screen (nothing ever comes on the screen, not even a boot logo), it might vibrate when a power button is pressed and held for 20 seconds, has no Recovery partition, no adb mode, and no fastboot partition (It might be a flickering OnePlus logo). The device might be detected in Linux and you might be able to even send commands to it. In Windows, the bricked OP3 should be detected as QHUSB_BULK,Unknown Device,Qualcomm something. You might have a bricked OP3 as a result of flashing a kernel meant for a different device (or a ROM meant for another device that included a kernel), tinkering with the boot logo or bootloader, or your attempt of unlocking the bootloader resulted in corrupting the boot partition. Most of the times, it is needed because OEM Unlocking is disabled, and phone can't boot and no recovery. The solution for OP3 hardbrick is similar to OPO - you just need a Qualcomm driver and a recovery package. A very very big thanks to some guys at XDA who got these files (don't know how) (I have modified the Method 1 file but Method 2 file remains exact from OnepLus) and helped all of us to get out from one of the most weird state of the phone. Thanks guys ( @CyberCROC and 1 more) METHOD 1This method is the best method and will not wipe your data at all and will give you stock recovery+latest OxygenOS (or the ROM you were on) and bootloader will remain in the state it was earlier.It *might* not work if some other partitions were also corrupted.
