Unbrick Nubia Red Magic 6/6 Pro/6R via Fastboot Commands

In this guide, we will show you the steps to unbrick the Nubia Red Magic 6/6 Pro/6R devices via Fastboot Commands. The Chinese OEM has done quite a decent job when it comes to its flagships segment. In this regard, its sixth iteration boasts of some impressive feature sets such as an astronomical 18GB RAM powered by the Snapdragon 888 chipset, which when coupled with Adreno 660 GPU translates to an absolute power packed device.

Moreover, all the three devices in this series are quite active in the custom development. Be it for flashing custom ROMs or installing a custom recovery like TWRP, there’s a lot to try out. Along the same lines, you could also gain administrative privileges by rooting your device via Magisk. This in turn will allow you to flash custom kernels and mods such as Magisk Modules and Xposed Framework.

However, carrying out these tweaks could prove to be risky, and if not done correctly, your device could end up in a bootloop or bricked state. Well, if that ever happens, then this guide shall come in handy. Given here are the detailed instructions steps that will help you to unbrick the Nubia Red Magic 6/6 Pro/6R devices via Fastboot Commands. Follow along.

STEP 4: Boot Nubia Red Magic 6 to Fastboot Mode

You will now have to boot your device to the Fastboot Mode. In most cases, when the deivce is bricked, it’s already in the Fastboot state.

For that, leave the device unattented and let the battery drain out. As and whn that happends, your device will automatically power off.

Now connect it to the charger and as soon as it starts charging, press and hold the Power and Volume Down keys for a few seconds, it should be booted to the Fastboot Mode.

  • but phone get bricked before set usb debugging, ADB cant detect device

  • fgnefldfliuvadflibdfl

    Doesn’t work. Keep getting errors. Device only boots to fastboot. Can’t even flash system, product, vendor- keep getting error “Invalid Sparse File Format at Header Magic.”

  • My RM6SP (6s pro) was bricked with a black screen but it did somehow have an unlocked bootloader so I could perform this guide with the above fastboot commands etc. However, after I have done these final instructional steps with the newly released RM6SP OTA update files’ payload.bin etc. I had somehow entered to another different hard brick state, being in the EDL hard brick state. Got any ideas in how to fix this? Any insights would be appreciated. Thanks

  • I did this, but now my mobile is not opening at all, no power

    • can you help please

      • I had issues in that I downloaded and installed the wrong software on my 6 pro (I put the software for a 6s pro). The phone cannot even switch on or open bootloader. There is no charging happening or anything at all. I guess it’s unfixable? I let the battery drain, then have gone to plug in and nothing. Beforehand, I’d at least feel a few vibrations

      • Has anyone gotten back to you about this issue?

  • after i flash this all one by one my mobile not opening now, it’s in black screen only
