How to Unbrick OnePlus 11R via Fastboot Commands

In this guide, we will show you the steps to unbrick your OnePlus 11R via Fastboot Commands. Not so long ago, this OEM used to be the pinnacle in custom development, with a plethora of ROMs, mods, and tweaks all lined up. However, since the tenth iteration, it has taken the turn for the worse, all thanks to the restrictions imposed in the MSM Download Tool. As a result of this, you would hardly see any development going on with these devices.

So while it could be an exceptional device for the general audience, the same cannot be said for the tech enthusiast. But still, those who love to tinker with their device are still going to do so, and we can’t blame them either. But on the flip side, it’s also no hidden secret that there’s always a possibility of things going south. But even if that happens, you could easily unbrick your OnePlus 11R by flashing the stock firmware via Fastboot Commands. And in this guide, we will show you how to do just that. Follow along.

Unbrick OnePlus 11R via Fastboot Commands

Unbrick OnePlus 11R

The below process will wipe off all the data from your device. So take a complete device backup beforehand by any means possible. Droidwin and its members wouldn’t be held responsible in case of a thermonuclear war, your alarm doesn’t wake you up, or if anything happens to your device and data by performing the below steps.

STEP 1: Install Android SDK

install adb platform tools windows

First and foremost, you will have to install the Android SDK Platform Tools on your PC. This is the official ADB and Fastboot binary provided by Google and is the only recommended one. So download it and then extract it to any convenient location on your PC. Doing so will give you the platform tools folder, which will be used throughout this guide to unbrick your OnePlus 10 Pro via Fastboot commands.

STEP 2: Download OnePlus 11R Fastboot ROM

Next up, download the stock firmware or Fastboot ROM for your device from the below link. OnePlus provides its firmware in payload.bin, which you need to extract in order to get hold of the partition files. I have already done that for a few firmware versions. So if your device has the same firmware/build installed, then you could directly download the Fastboot ROM [extracted payload] instead of the payload.bin. Or else move over to the next step to manually do this task.

STEP 3: Extract OnePlus 11R Payload.bin

If you have downloaded the Fastboot ROM, then you could skip this step. On the other hand, if you have a payload.bin firmware, then you will have to extract it first and get the resultant IMG files. To do so, you may refer to our guide on How to Extract OnePlus Payload.bin file. Once extracted, make sure to transfer all the files to the platform-tools folder.

STEP 4: Boot Bricked OnePlus 11R to Fastboot Mode

In most cases, a soft-bricked or boot-looped device might already be in the Fastboot Mode. However, if you are stuck in a bootloop, then long-press the Power key to turn it off. Then press and hold the Power and Volume Down keys (or Power and Volume Up in some devices) together to boot your device to Fastboot Mode.

However, if you are unable to power off the device, then let its battery drain out. Once that happens, connect it to the charger. Then as soon as it is about to boot up, use the Power and Volume Up/Down keys and it will straightaway boot to Fastboot Mode.

STEP 5: Format Device via Fastboot

  1. Head over to the platform-tools folder where the extracted ROM is present.
  2. Then go to its address bar, type in CMD in its address and hit Enter. This will launch the CMD window.
  3. Now execute the below command to perform a factory reset (optional but recommended)
    fastboot -w

STEP 6: Flash OnePlus 11R Firmware in Fastboot Mode

Execute the below commands in the CMD window [that is opened in the platform-tools folder] to flash the partition file. Make sure to execute one command at a time. Furthermore, if you get an error, then don’t leave the process mid-way, rather move over to the next flashing command.

fastboot --set-active=a

fastboot flash --slot=all boot boot.img
fastboot flash --slot=all modem modem.img
fastboot flash vendor_boot vendor_boot.img
fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
fastboot flash vbmeta_system vbmeta_system.img
fastboot flash vbmeta_vendor vbmeta_vendor.img

STEP 7: Flash OnePlus 11R Firmware in FastbootD Mode

You will now have to flash the remaining firmware files in the FastbootD Mode. So type in the below command to boot your device to this mode

fastboot reboot fastboot

Unbrick OnePlus 11R

Now execute the below commands in the CMD window [one at a time] to flash the remaining files:

fastboot flash --slot=all abl abl.img
fastboot flash --slot=all aop aop.img
fastboot flash --slot=all aop_config aop_config.img

That’s it. These were the steps to unbrick your OnePlus 11R via Fastboot commands. If you have any queries concerning the aforementioned steps, do let us know in the comments. We will get back to you with a solution at the earliest.

  • I believe the command
    fastboot flash –slot=all xbl_ramdump.img xbl_ramdump.img
    to be a typo, as it does not successfully execute, unlike
    fastboot flash –slot=all xbl_ramdump xbl_ramdump.img
    , which successfully executes. Can you confirm?
