I have a oneplus one which had CM 13 installed on it. The recovery is TWRP. Last day I tried to install Kali Nethunter ROM on the same from recovery. However things got messy and the phone didn't boot. To make things worse, I by mistake wiped everything on the device.

So I now have A device with NO OS and NO Data.

Then I booted the device to recovery and tried to use sideload. However the device wasn't getting detected on my laptop. Following commands resulted no positive results.

adb devices [no devices connected]
adb push [failed]
adb sideload [failed]

Since the device is not even getting detected as an unknown device in the USB port, I tried installing the universal adb driver available. That also didn't help.

What could I be doing wrong?

You can flash the phone in fastboot mode.

  1. First you need to unlock the bootloader (if it wasn't done before):

    • Power off your phone then boot into fastboot mode with power button + volume up button.

    • Connect your phone to your PC via usb cable.

    • Open a command prompt

    • Check your fastboot connection by issuing this command: fastboot devices It should return your device serial number, if not you need to make sure your drivers are installed correctly.

    • Once you've confirmed your fastboot connection issue this command:

    fastboot oem unlock

    The device will now go through the automated unlocking process, just let it do its things.

    • Done

      1. Flashing thee Cyanogen OS Fastboot Images
    • Download the latest stock images

    • Reboot your device into Fastboot Mode (power + volume up) and connect your phone to your PC via usb cable.

    • Unzip the file you downloaded and put its contents into your fastboot folder.

    • Open a command prompt.
