  1. I did all the above. Flashed stock Oxygen OS, flashed stock recovery and locked the bootloader. This morning I received a notification to update to Oxygen OS 3.2.1. It downloaded and the phone rebooted to recovery. The installation failed and I even tried adb side loading the OTA, it also failed. What am I doing wrong?

  2. Hi Sidharth,

    I tried installing stock recovery in my oneplus 3.
    I got following error.
    Please suggest solution.



  3. I tried to put stock recovery in my oneplus 3. I did everything as you suggested. On usb debugging and first command “adb reboot bootloader” my phone boot loader appeared. However, on giving second command “fastboot flash recovery stockrecovery.img” it gave a failed message! Please offer your comments. Please forward the comments in my email id also.

  4. For those who can’t install the Stock Recovery, make sure ADB drivers it was correctly installed. To do this, you have to go to “device manager” on windows, and select “Other devices”, or “USB devices”, right click on “Oneplus 3” (if you found your phone in “USB devices”; if you found your phone in “Other devices”, i don’t remember which name it has), and select “update drivers…”, then, click on “Search driver software in the pc” (i don’t know how is the correctly name, i’ve got a spanis version of windows), then, “Choose device drivers from a list”, and select “Android ADB smartphone” or something like that. Once you did it, you can use ADB from CMD without problems.
