Article needed for firmware upgrade
does anyone feel motivated to write an article like this https://forums.ubports.com/topic/1103/howto-update-baseband-other-firmware/ for the Oneplus One? Its justa bout finding the right downloads for the latest firmware and explain what to do. Feel free to copy my wording, I can then pin it
I think we should give that instructions for all core devices, since for legal reasons we cannot deliver firmware with our OTAs at all.
Download the latest Android update package for OnePlus One to your PC:
1.1. Official OxygenOS: http://oxygenos.oneplus.net/OnePlus_Bacon_OxygenOS_201601190107.zip
2. The zip file contains a "firmware-update" and the RADIO folder. We only need these, extract them to a location of your choice
3. Connect your phone, developer mode must be enabled
4. issue the following command: adb reboot bootloader - The phone will enter fastboot mode
5. Open a shell at the location where you have extracted the firmware folder
6. Issue the following commands exactly as stated:
6.1. sudo fastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
6.2. sudo fastboot flash sbl1 sbl1.mbn
6.3. sudo fastboot flash rpm rpm.mbn
6.4. sudo fastboot flash tz tz.mbn
6.5. sudo fastboot flash dbi sdi.mbn
6.6. sudo fastboot flash aboot emmc_appsboot.mbn
(7 is for updating the RADIO, I haven't tested it myself so proceed with caution, if you wish not to test this skip to 8.)
7.1. Open the shell at the location where you have extracted the RADIO folder.
7.2. sudo fastboot flash modem static_nvbk.bin
8. sudo fastboot reboot
The phone will reboot normally
That look about right?
Thats the latest official image for the OPO however I dont know how any of this works, so if its compatible with other ubuntu touch versions IDK.
@phoenixlandpirat Theres also a folder called RADIO with a static_nvbk.bin so I assume youre suppose to flash that as well?
Would this still work for the halium 7.1 OPO?
@lakotaubp I just went through it and the OPO still boots, so thats good
@phoenixlandpirat That's a good start Now I have something to do over the weekend.
@lakotaubp Yes I think so, firmware should be independent of the Android container (hopefully ^^)
@keneda yeah I just copied and pate flo's for the fairphone and changed a few things, so I missed that bit!
@phoenixlandpirat I get a download error from firefox like:
Am I doing something wrong??
@messayisto Dont try to open a .zip.part file, its an unfinished download from your Firefox. Please make sure you download has finished and is usable before continuing
@flohack thanks for your reply. Problem is, that firefox won't save the file, it does not try to open it. It looks more like a broken link or so...
@flohack sorry , my mistake. it nedded a right click... shame on me!!!
@phoenixlandpirat What is the exact flash command for that?
@phoenixlandpirat Switched it to developer mode and it can't see the phone. I feel like I am missing a step.
fastboot flash oppostanvbk static_nvbk.bin
And I got it from here:
Look in the first post.
I do not take any responsibility for this, because it is from the RADIO folder and not from the firmware folder.
@rondarius Just updated the instructions with that, so thank you!
@totalrando do you have adb tools installed?
