  1. Oneplus upgrades my phone without my consent every time I have an internet connection so now I have a T-Mobile version running on their NEWEST version of OXYGEN that does NOT ACCEPT ANY recovery boot loaders or any recovery for that matter.

    If I try to flash recovery it just freezes the phone. Since the recovery is built into the boot.img now.

    So I have to flash a TRWP installer but every single one I have flashed has bootlooped requiring a hard kill. Can anyone please help me?

    They turned my GM1915 into a IN2020 before I could do a DAMN THING. Somone please help me me. Everything is unlocked, but they’ve changed file structures and partitions resulting in errors like:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>fastboot flash xbl_config_b xbl_config.img
    Sending ‘xbl_config_b’ (124 KB) OKAY [ 0.012s]
    Writing ‘xbl_config_b’ FAILED (remote: ‘Flashing is not allowed for Critical Partitions
    ‘)
    fastboot: error: Command failed

    Even though flashing critical partitions IS allowed
    Its like they’ve destroyed all abilities to have a recovery.
