    Hi everyone. Yesterday I think I might have let my OPX completely drain its battery overnight without my knowledge. I wasn't able to boot it up or get into recovery mode even after charging for 6 hours.
    Today though, I let it charge, and surprisingly the screen responded and the charging LED was working. After letting it charge fully(Once the screen displayed a full green battery image) I tried to switch it on, and it went to fastboot. However it was stuck on the fastboot screen. I then went into recovery mode by holding the volume and power buttons, and tried to reboot from there. It just goes to fastboot again and gets stuck.

    I have tried wiping the cache and data from within recovery mode, and even tried formatting. However it all ends up with the phone just becoming stuck on the "fastboot mode" screen after rebooting. It's just an endless loop :(

    What should I do? Thanks a ton for the help!

    Sounds like its possibly your vol up button has gotten stuck. That's really the only thing I can think of if it keeps booting right back into fastboot.

    Same here, I suggest he removes a case (if he uses one) and wiggle the volume button back and forth a bit.

    do you have windows or a mac?

    assuming you have windows get the latest full rom from oneplus here http://downloads.oneplus.net/2016-02-23/opx/OnePlus_X_OxygenOS_2.2.0-hotfix/

    then you need to get the needed tools onto windows just follow this http://lifehacker.com/the-easiest-way-to-install-androids-adb-and-fastboot-to-1586992378

    say we have the rom downloaded onto the desktop now from cmd goto to where you installed the adb and fastboot tools and also put your phone install recovery. from recory mode select install from usb and say ok. then type in cmd adb sideload rom_filename.zip. PM me if you need more hellp

    However even when I reboot normally from the recovery mode, it still goes straight to fastboot. I'm also pretty sure my volume up button is stuck. So this can't be the issue right?

    Hey.Thanks for the reply! I will try this. Only problem is my internet is kind of slow, and will take a while to download the ROM. Also, should i download the hotfix or the older version? Also my phone isn't showing up when i type in "adb devices" when I open adb in command prompt. Any ideas?

    Hello, I have a similar problem, my phones is stuck in recovery mode when I turn it on. I tried doing the mega unbrick but the programme does not recognise my phone as it does nothing when holding the volume up button. What can I do?
