    Setup:
    1. Download the above files
    2. Connect your OPO to the computer (Windows 7, 8 or 10)
    3. Press the volume up + power button (at the same time) until you feel a vibration
      • If your device says fastboot, press the volume up + power button again, till your screen goes black and you hear a sound on the computer.
    4. Start> Device Manager
      • The following drivers should be detected automatically in device manager (Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008)
        1. If ADB interface is seen, read step 3 again
        2. If you see QHSUSB_BULK
          1. Start> CMD (RunAs Admin)
          2. Reboot your computer
          3. Enter Device Manager (start> device manager)
          4. Right click QHSUSB_BULK> Update driver software> Browse my computer for driver software> Browse
          5. Select <path of unzipped files>\Drivers\Qualcomm 2012
          6. Check "include subfolder"> hit Next
    5. Navigate to '<path of unzipped files>\OnePlusRestoreTool" folder
    6. Right click on the "OnePlusRestoreTool(64GB).exe" and 'RunAs Administrator"
    7. The program should start automatically doing its thing. If not, select the line that says 'COM' and hit start.
    8. Once you see green text, hit log and make sure you have a BIG GREEN OK.
    9. Unplug the device and press the volume down + power button till you feel a vibration.
      • It is important that you do not boot into your system, else, your data partition will suffer!
    10. TWRP should now load. Once loaded, click Mount.
    11. Connect your OPO to the computer.
    12. Toggle off/on MTP (MTP should be ON)
    13. Using your computer, transfer your ROM and the OnePlusOne-BootUnlocker.zip to your "Internal Storage".
    14. Hit the back button, on your OPO.
    15. Hit install> go to /sdcard/OnePlusOne-BootUnlocker.zip > swipe to install
    16. Then hit install again> go to /sdcard/<rom zip> (the one you started with) > swipe to install
    17. Reboot the device, using the reboot button. You may be prompted to root your device (during this process), so be on the lookout.

    Yeah, for a while I was like wtf... Had to make a few edits. The real MVP here was TWRP and nandroid backup. I had to restore so many times to test different things out.
