    I'm getting this exact error.
    Unable to unlock OEM - stuck in a bootloop so when the fastboot oem unlock happens, it reboots and gets stuck in a bootloop.
    When I follow your hardbrick guide; I get to steps 7 and 8 and the MSM8994DOwnloadTool.exe, nothing seems to happen. For 30 minutes it still remains as it is.

    Update, repeated all the steps - this time slightly different.

    When MSM8994Downloadtool.exe is ran, it performs its tasks and then my phone reboots - but gets stuck in the bootloop instantly.

    Update x2. Issue seems to be resolved; not sure what caused it not to work but third time is a charm. Thank you Naman (and Lancelot).

    Please help...

    My phone was soft bricked. It's can boot into CM recovery but no data in media. Also can boot into fast boot mode, but it's not recognized in PC device manager. try to hold vol+ button for 10 sec then connect it to PC, but it still not recognized. But, when device off and conected to PC, it's shows battery charging logo.

    Thanks in advance for solution. :)

    Thanks man, you saved my money!
    I had flashed miui beta ROM and was unable to get into recovery. So I did all the steps you mentioned without any modification.First boot took a lot of time.I had to clear data and cache in one plus recovery.
    Again, Thank You :)

    EDIT: I was able to solve my problem by flashing a stock rom via fastboot.


    Few days ago I got my OP2 with OxygenOS 3.1.0.
    I tried to get root acces following this how-to: https://forums.oneplus.net/threads/mac-user-guide-how-to-root-oneplus-two.438367/

    This didn't work so I tried other how-to's and ended up having TWRP 3.0.2-2 running on my phone.
    When I tried flashing I think Oxygen_OS3_v2.76_supersu through TWRP in order to get root access, the phone was soft-bricked.

    Googling alot I found this thread about how to un-softbrick the phone but I can't make it...

    I am working with OS X, Version 10.9.5.

    It is possible to boot in fastboot mode but I don't know how to run the batch file. Can anyone please explain to me step by step? Unfortunately I'm not really familiar with working with the terminal.

    Thank you a lot in advance :)

    @Naman Bhalla I'm on Marshmallow based custom ROM currently (RR 5.7.2) with latest twrp. Is this method still relevant for me if I want to go back to complete stock ROM + recovery?

    Hi, so my op2 was rooted & running fine, I decided to change ROM to exodus, didnt like, wiped data, reverted to a previous back-up i made and boom. Was boot-looping, could still open twrp though, try wiping cache and doing restore again, this time my touch screen doesnt work so i could only look at twrp menu. I followed this post and ran cmnd file, it finally executed after a few tries. now phone is just stuck on menu that says powered by android when turned on, can still get to fast boot as well, just no recovery menu.. PLEASE help me if anyone has a suggestion, or has been through and fixed this issue.. I really appreciate everyone on here. Thank you. Especially the author of this thread!

    Thanks for putting this guide together. Unfortunately it did not work for me. I downloaded the file, extracted it and ran the batch file flash_ox211.cmd. After the command ran I rebooted and just get the Oneplus screen and have lost twrp also. any ideas where i can go from here?

    The OP should update the main thread and specify that, you need to have your bootloader unlocked, I wasted my 1 gb bandwidth.

    Major EDIT:-
    Follow this guide for the guys you haven't unlocked bootloaders and softbricked their devices, I'm one of them. https://forums.oneplus.net/threads/...ck-guide-for-a-hard-bricked-oneplus-2.347607/ . This thread needs maintenance.

    People stucked at fastboot screen, just enter this command, as mentioned by OP, fastboot reboot
