Oneplus One failed



  • @w0lf3n Please let us know what OS you are running. Did you unlock the device, setup dev mode. The device should still boot up and definitely charge. Connect it to power and hold power and volume down that will get you to recovery options. Do you see UBports recovery or Android. That is if it will not restart as normal.



  • Hi,

    After playing with the phone, I have managed to do a factory reset and phone is back to normal.

    The phone OS is Cyanogen bacon.

    I installed the downloaded on to my laptop running Linux Mint.

    On the phone it says that USB tethering not connected. I've tried different cables but still same message.

    This is the first time trying to change an OS so I'm a total newbie.

    Thanks for the replies.



  • @w0lf3n I had similar troubles, but I got it resolved by booting to recovery mode instead of fastboot. That means, I used the power and volume- instead of power and volume+ buttons. The phone was then detected, and it rebooted into fastboot mode, and this time the installation went through.

    It took me a couple of tries but it all came out in the wash, so don't give up!



  • @Moem

    Thanks but I can't seem to get the USB tethering to work and ubports installer is not detecting my phone.



  • @w0lf3n Ok first thing enable developer mode on the OPO. Allow usb debugging, MTP and make sure the bootloader is unlocked (though the installer may do this for you). You need adb and fastboot installed on Mint. Then choose the wipe option in the installer if you have nothing on the device you want to keep.

    Hi,

    I tried that but the installer is not detecting the phone.

    The USB tethering is not working.



  • @w0lf3n with the device connected to the pc/laptop type adb devices in a terminal. What do you get? Watch out for an allow connection message on the device if you have not done that already.

    What am I looking for?
    I see a lot of words.



  • @w0lf3n In the terminal type

    adb devices

    It should then say something like

    Starting daemon on ---
    daemon started

    Then it should hopefully list your device.



  • @Lakotaubp

    No devices listed.



  • @w0lf3n Ok now type

    adb reboot bootloader

    That should then reboot the device bootloader, look for lock state. You need it to be unlocked. If it is not then type

    sudo fastboot oem unlock

    Then reboot the device.



  • @Lakotaubp

    daemon not running. Starting it now on port 5037
    daemon started successfully
    error: device ' (null)' not found

    Sudo fastboot oem unlock
    Waiting for device.



  • @w0lf3n Did you first run

    adb reboot bootloader

    Then if the device lock state is locked, run

    sudo fastboot oem unlock

    Yes, I did.

    On the phone, the USB tethering is not working, it won't switch on. I don't know if that is causing the problem?



  • @w0lf3n Installed UT by the installer on OPO always gave me problems, but never on the command line.
    If you can't do it through the installer, I suggest you to try this simple procedure:

    • put the OPO in fastboot mode;

    • Plug the OPO into the laptop;

    • Run the command line under the terminal (copy and paste the following)

      sudo ubuntu-device-flash --server=https//system-image.ubports.com touch --device=bacon --channel=ubports-touch/16.04/stable --bootstrap --wipe
      

    Let the procedure go until UT is installed on the OPO, this should take some time.



  • @w0lf3n When booted back into the existing os does the phone work ok. When connected to your pc/laptop and the screen unlocked it should show as 'android device' in your file system and you should be able to access the OPOs file system. You need MTP mode for that.



  • @Lakotaubp

    Phone works OK in original OS but computer doesn't recognise the phone. Tethering won't work.



  • @w0lf3n If you are trying with the USB tethering option, that is not the option you want. You need File transfer option, can't remember if that isexactly what it is called or not but not usb tethering.

    I'm selecting mtp file transfer but nothing is happening.



  • @w0lf3n Now you have that option retry typing (with the phone in normal mode)

    adb devices

    in a terminal. What do you get.
