Step 2. Install ADB drivers.

Step 3. On your OnePlus One, enable USB debugging. For this:

  1. Go to Settings > About phone, and then tap ‘Build number’ 7 times or until you see the ‘you’re now a developer’ message pop up.
  2. Go back to Settings, then choose ‘Developer options’. Find the ‘USB debugging’ option and use its toggle button to enable it. Accept warning by tapping on OK button.

Step 4. Connect your OnePlus One to PC now. You will get a pop-up as shown below on your phone when you connect for the first time after enabling USB debugging. Select ‘Always allow from this computer’ checkbox and then tap on OK button.

Step 5. Download the OnePlus One TWRP recovery from above.

Step 6. Rename the recovery file to a simple one, one-twrp.img

Step 7. Now, open command window in the folder where you have the one-twrp.img file. For this:

  1. Open that folder and then left click on empty white space in the folder.
  2. Now, while holding shift key, right click on empty white space to get a pop-up as shown below.
  3. Now choose Open command window here option from that.

You will see a command window open up, with location directed to folder where you have the twrp recovery file.

Step 8. Boot your OnePlus One into Bootloader/Fastboot mode:

  • Power off your device and wait for 3-4 seconds after screen goes off.
  • Press and hold Power and Volume Up together for 3 seconds and then let go. You’ll enter bootloader mode, also called Fastboot mode.

Step 9. Test whether fastboot is working alright. For this, run the command given below. (You can also copy paste the command and then use enter key to run it.)

→ Upon running command below, you should get a serial no. with fastboot written after it. If you don’t get fastboot written on cmd window, then it means you need to reinstall adb and fastboot drivers, or change restart PC, or use original USB cable.
