    Hi all, so I received my OPO a few days ago and have decided to flash it to Franco kernel in order to increase battery life.

    I'm completely new to Android and rooting, but I decided to start since I believe I've done sufficient research.

    My phone won't even boot into fastboot when I hold up volume button or power off.

    What's going on here?

    uhhh ok there are so many things that could be going on here. Is your phone off? why? Did this happen right after flashing the kernel? Can you turn it on?

    details bruh

    Nah bruh, haven't flashed anything yet. I think its a problem I'm having with drivers. Like I haven't even unlocked bootloader (that's what I'm trying to do currently) and it was when the phone was off. I can turn it on normally.

    Assuming you have developer options turned on, check the "advance reboot" box. Press the power button to bring up the reboot menu. Select boot loader.

    Sounds like you got a bad factory flash, try power and volume down for recovery if you can get into that, swing over to Dev and pickup a rooted bacon Rom and flash it.
    Good luck.

    Sometimes it will not go into fastboot if it is connected to the computer. Unplug and try again

    Thanks I managed to get the bootloader unlocked and tried to flash TWRP recovery, how long does it usually take to get out of Fastboot Mode?
