Other Potential Brick?

    Hello all,

    Hoping someone can possibly help here. When I was in TWRP I was backing up my phone and accidentally wiped as well. At that time I was unable to get back into the ROM I had as my internal storage was wiped completely as well. I can boot into fastboot but my device is locked and fastboot oem unlock does not unlock.

    SO basically I'm potentially screwed and looking for help from the community possibly??

    Thanks all in advance

    Several questions here:

    1) how could your bootloader be locked if you were on TWRP? Did you re-lock it explicilty? (doesn't make much sense to me, but ok...)
    2) what error do you get when trying to unlock via fastboot command?

    In your situation, I guess that the quickest way to revert to stock is by following the mega unbrick guide, it helped me once, and it's a life safer when, like in your case, you end up with no recovery or a messed up recovery.

    You can find the guide here:


    You got nothing to lose, since your data is gone anyway, so just go ahead :)

    Of course, you'll need a PC to follow this, and some stuff to download, so just start downloading if you got a slow connection :)

    Sorry, just realized that this is the 3T section, and the guide I linked is for the 3 (or at least, was originally written for the 3).

    It should apply *mostly* in the same way to the 3T, but maybe it's safer if you look for a 3T specific thred in the forum

    Hey all,

    Just want to say thank you very much for taking the time to respond and offer solutions. I am back up and running. I followed the ultimate unbrick guide. It was done via a third party website but followed steps above. Had to download the qualcomm driver and set up again.

    Very important is that phone has to be off for it to work lol.

    Can a MOD please close this thread? Thank you again to everyone that reached out to help. Seriously thank you
