Unbricking Oneplus One phone
I recently bought two cheap Oneplus One phones off ebay listed as parts hoping to make 1 good one out of two. Both were listed as no power, but one was listed as having a cracked lcd.
Well, the one I bought that was listed as having a cracked lcd actually didn't have a cracked screen at all and it is the phone I'm using now after putting Ubuntu Touch on it.
The other phone however is hard bricked as holding either volume and power at the same time does absolutely nothing. The only way to get any response from the phone at all is to plug it in and the only thing you see is the charge indicator come on the screen(well also the charge LED comes on I think so both the screen animation of the battery charging plus the LED). Holding down power alone does nothing, nor doing it along with volume buttons.
So my question is this. I've watched a few tutorial online explaining how to unbrick in this situation where they advise you to download some files on the internet, one called "color.zip" I think and a couple others. And run a program on a windows machine. Is this method legit or will I be putting malware on my computer if I do this? And if so what is the trusted site I should use for this?
