It is always comforting to know, especially when you are carrying out a risk-free operation, that there is a safety net capable of restoring the initial situation. In the past OnePlus it was usual to release its ROM in installable format from recovery, but the advent of Project Treble has revolutionized the approach to updates. In today's guide we will show you how to restore the stock ROM (and then make theunbrick) on OnePlus 6 using fastboot!
Here's how to restore the stock ROM on OnePlus 6 (unbrick fastboot) | Guide
The advent of Project Trebleas we said, he changed the cards on the table in the world of modding. The updates are now performed on the unused slot (for example, if you use slot a, the update will be installed on slot b and slot b will be set as default) and this will avoid permanent damage in most scenarios. In case of problems (brick or bootloop, possible in the modding field) however, the official zip can not be installed, which can only be used through Update Engine.
The Italian developer Mauronofrio has therefore decided to extract the system images from the official zip to repackage them in a ROM installable by Fastboot. Restoring the firmware and unbrick with this procedure will only work with bootloader unlocked and they will lead todeleting all data in the internal memory.
