    NOTE: This guide is for all OnePlus devices, so it will work for both OP9 and 9 Pro. This will wipe your internal sdcard and you will lose everything (pics, videos, app data, etc.)

    Setup: Make sure you download the correct MSM package for your device and region from here. Next, make sure you have the proper drivers installed. I've uploaded them here. Then:

    1) Make sure to ONLY use original OnePlus red cord
    2) Use USB 2.0 port if available
    3) Start MSM.exe with administrator privileges (right click "Run as administrator")
    4) When MSM launches, there should be at least one COM port shown. If not, connect phone in EDL mode. This is achieved by either:
    adb reboot edl
    in Android or...

    b) hold volume up and volume down (NO power button) for 5 seconds and then connect to USB cord

    and then, keeping phone connected to USB, restart the MSM.exe with admin rights. At least one COM port should show up now. If not, try another USB port.

    5) Once you have a COM port showing up in MSM, connect the phone in EDL mode as described above. The COM port should switch from N/A to Connected. Hit the Start button at the top left within 5 seconds or the phone will reboot automatically.

    6) Flashing should start. It will take about 5 minutes to finish. Phone will automatically reboot when finished flashing.

    7) When phone reboots, you can disconnect from USB and close MSM. Set up the phone normally as if you just took it out of the box.

    I have just double and triple-checked and the app is definitely there for me on OB2. I also do not have the .romupdate apk you say is there. You can try the same command on that app and see if System Update disappears. If it doesn't immediately re-enable the app.

    This update has been cancelled

    Finally settled down. I was afraid it would be installed automatically when it was idle

    I solved it thanks to this tool

    Power your device off.
    Let it cool down for one minute.
    Hold both volumes in to get in Qualcomm EDL mode and the screen will stay black. While holding, plug in the USB cable from your phone to your computer. Let volumes go alter plugged in.
    Wait some time (should not be longer than ~300 seconds).
    Enjoy your brand new device.
    if your smartphone does not detect you, do this and try again:
    Unplug your phone, get in fastboot mode, turn off phone, wait 15 secondes and get back in Qualcomm EDL mode. You can also try using a USB 2.0 port instead of a 3.0 one.

    I have the latest stable version installed ( I have downloaded OB1 to install it and when it clicks to install it tells me: The version of the package you have selected is lower than the current version of the system. To avoid startup errors, installation of older versions is not allowed) So I can't install the beta version
