    My phone is in a weird state of being unlocked and not rooted and also has no twrp. Yesterday, I tried installing 9.0.5 but instead was net with the fact that my PC also can't recognize my phone. With these two issues in mind I tried these solutions: installing countless drivers on my PC(none work) and wiping the data (except internal) from my phone twice. Updating the normal way fails and so does local upgrade and since my phone can't connect to my PC I don't know what to do. please someone help me.

    are you trying to side load the new software?

    did you try to boot into debug mode?

    did you install the adb-package?



    if you don't want to go there,
    did you try connecting your phone with a regular usb2.0 connection port?

    If your phone is unlocked and encrypted, then to install OOS pie builds you MUST wipe data including internal for it to boot. TBH I'm a little surprised you missed this in reading the release thread.

    Including internal storage? Your initial post suggested NOT.

    When offered the option to wipe, one of the options should be to wipe/format data including internal storage.

    The issue, as I understand it, is that OOS pie builds are unable to obtain the decryption keys for earlier builds, so whilst you have an encrypted partition on your device the OS cannot access it and won't boot, when you wipe the partition it has the encryption overwritten allowing the OS to access it.

    As a matter of interest what makes you think the bootloader was unlocked.

    That's ok. You need to use a pc to check bootloader and change its state.
    Some people have wrongly thought that a switch in developer options locked\unlocked the bootloader.
