so I recently tried to root my oneplus 2 to be able to flash cm13 onto it. I followed the guide oneplus provided on youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZaajUEybNM) exactly and got the same results for everything except that my phone does not boot. The only differences between my phone and their guide were that I had a newer operating system (Oxygen OS 3.0.1) and I flashed the latest version for everything, also I went for the Stable version of Super SU instead of the beta. I understand that he said it would take a little time to boot, but I am assuming he doesn't mean 5+ hours.

I am still able to boot into recovery (TWRP) and fastboot but not the OS. I tried wiping the phone and installing Super SU again, but no luck. I am stuck here and don't know what to do next. Any help would be amazing and extremely appreciated.

According to this thread on the OnePlus forum: To return to full stock after a soft brick:

  • Download the Fastboot images here (,it restores to OOS 2.1.1)

  • Extract the zip file to anywhere you'd like

  • Boot the phone in Fastboot mode (Volume up + power button)

  • Connect the phone to the PC

  • Open the unzipped folder and run the file with the .bat extension (Windows) or a file with name flash-all

The above method doesn't clear the data partition, to clear it:

  • Download the userdata.img from here amd flash it using fastboot flash userdata userdata_64.img

And you need a working ADB/Fastboot environment.

  • so I dont need to use twrp?

  • No, since you'll use a computer.

  • I am not able to access the userdata_64.img file because it is private, it is denying me access... Do I need it?

This solution seems to work flawlessly

  • Download this file

  • Boot the phone in Fastboot (Volume up + Power)

  • Tape the following:

    fastboot erase persist

    fastboot flash persist persist.img

    fastboot reboot

This seems to work for them. You need the official TWRP (Download)
