    Hello! I can not install the drivers, because my OPX VID 00FE (00FE:9008) instead of 05C6.
    I edited the file named QCSER.INF:
    %QcomDevice90080% = QportInstall00, USB\VID_00FE&PID_9008
    Then appeared device "Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 (COM3)". Further all the instructions, but:
    "Sahara Communication Failed Please try again after poweroff phone".

    What to do else? And which means 00FE?
    Advise, please. Thanks

    Hi. First of all thank you so much for providing information like this. Without people like you I would have been in a ton of shitty situations without the means to recover from them.

    I don't know whether this thread is dead or not, but I have to give it a shot...
    I've done all the steps to the point of installing the driver. It is possible for me to find the Qualcom HS-USB under Ports in Device Manager, but it is not possible to install any other driver. When I try to install it Windows says that the right driver is installed and that there is no reason in changing it...
    I have, as the instructions told, set my computer to be in "Test mode" regarding the Driver Signature Enforcement.

    It should work. Try with an old computer with windows 7 on it, it's easier.

    I installed on my lineageos 14 plus one. All perfect for a few days. Then, while I was away from home, he started riavvisarsi continuously. He opened the TMRP recovery, but not loaded the rom. After a bit 'of attempts is the Roma in Safe mode is started. I rebooted again and resumed the continuous riavvivi. Now appears the OnePlus logo and then switches off and restarts. Even more the recovery is started, if not for a very short period, then restarts all. What can I do?
    thank you

    So I'm in the situation where my bootloader is locked, and I can't boot into recovery, just shows the OnePlus logo.
    Tried flashing again using the TWRP app and fastboot, nothing.
    Did "fastboot oem device-info" got this

    (bootloader) Device tampered: false
    (bootloader) Device unlocked: false
    (bootloader) Charger screen enabled: false
    (bootloader) Display panel:
    (bootloader) console_enabled: 0
    (bootloader) exec_console_unconsole: 0​

    I tried this unbrick method, but, depending on the computer used (Windows 10, Windows 7, or Microsofts IE11 Windows 7 VM) I either got, Unknown Device along with "TP-Link Android Phone/Android Bootloader interface", just "android", or just "Unknown Device". All of these do also have a COM1 under ports though. (I have driver signing or whatever off btw)

    None of those picked up the driver from qcser.inf when I used "Browse for driver software on your computer", only if I used Have Disk, which then gave the whole list of "QUALCOMM-HS USB Diagnostics xxxx" drivers, No clue which one to use since none of the devices have that name.

    Doesn't matter what driver I chose, MsmDownloadTool V2.0 just says "Waiting for Device Connection"

    I posted on XDA weeks ago and no one replied, do any of you have any clues? I'm willing to have someone teamviewer into a computer if they whana help figure it out.

    My phone had gotten stuck in a boot loop with no access to recovery or bootloader and was not getting detected by my computer. Luckily I stumbled across this. I was relieved to find out that I could unbrick my phone, and when I saw the mini unbrick, with no data loss, I was amazed. It has worked like a charm without any problems for months now. Thanks alot!!!!!!

    Greetings folks,
    I know very little about installing custom ROM but I usually can handle it by just following a guide. I messed up BAD this time however and ended up hard-bricking my OPX.

    The problem I believe is that Windows 7 is working against me preventing me to follow this guide (or any guide for that matter) because any attempt I make at registering Qualcomm drivers fail.
    I will include screenshots below, but my theory based on my limited knowledge is that the phone is being detected as the wrong "type" of unknown device such as a "universal serial bus controller", while the included driver present in this guide "qcser.inf" is listed as "Class = Ports".
    I have followed several guides, disabled driver signature verification but I always end up with "The folder you specified doesn't contain a compatible software driver for your device". So as long as my phone is not listed as "QHSUSB_BULK" nothing is gonna work. Any help would be appreciated at this point!

    1. Power + vol [down / up ]
    2. Called the support [India] to get help -> ticket no 597069 , they told me to do some steps none of them worked
    3. Took the phone to Koramangala service centre and they told mother board has been short circuited have to change the motherboard and instead of changing the board which costs between 8K to 11K the service engineer told me to buy new one
    4. keep the phone idle for two days and try to switch on , I did this today finally saw a screen which said battery was dangerously low keep it charge little hope so I put for charge and tried to switch on nothing happening now

    Can you guys help me what I have to do to bring back my phone
