  • The only option could be manual flashing the stable build. You can find the Oreo build in the Manual Rollback section here. https://www.nokia.com/phones/en_int/developer

    Note that you have to register for beta program before you can access these. I don't know if new users can register now or not and you need a PC to flash that and the instructions will be given there. You can also visit the nearest service center and they will flash the stable build any day but I don't think it would be free.

    Is this the only solution, I don't know but this is the only thing I can think of. I can't guarantee that it works as well, if there isn't any hardware issue it should work. Beware that this will erase any data that is present in the phone. So, treat this as a last resort.

    Check out how to get access to Android hidden mode. Follow our steps and boot NOKIA 7 Plus into fastboot mode.

    1. Hold down the Power key for a short while to turn off the device.Hard Reset NOKIA 7 Plus
    2. Use the Micro USB in order to connect NOKIA to a charger.
    3. After that start pressing Volume Down + Power key for a few seconds.HardReset NOKIA 7 Plus
    4. Release all buttons when Fastboot Mode pops up.
    5. Great! Your NOKIA 7 Plus will be in Fastboot mode.

    Can you try this and verify that you can get into fastboot mode.

    I cant even turn off the device.if i restart the device it directly comes into the download mode having a androidone logo.
  • Same here, just keeps turning on by itself to download mode.

  • Managed to recover phone, but lost all my data. :/
    Fastboot the following commands to phone :
    fastboot --set-active
    fastboot reboot 
    or 
    fastboot reboot recovery
    try it and see if you can recover without deleting user data.

    This works thank you very much, reboot recovery did not work but the first one worked and could factory reset.
  • Please explain to me how to do this because my mobile is the same Problem

    None of the suggestions is working for me. turn off the phone, connecting Nokia charger and holding volume - key down and power button. Installing google USB drivers and adb with fastboot on my laptop and enter those command. none worked. What else can I do?

    Thanks for your help. I managed to get the driver install after I uninstalled the my old samsung drivers. I was able to get it started with fastboot and got to the screen asking to try again or factory reset. I selected factory reset but the phone goes back to download mode. 

    So its been in download mode for 12 hours now and the battery is finally dead. When I plug the phone in to charge, I get the charging icon and it still says download mode in the top left hand corner. 

    I think this phone is dead. To have a security update brick the phone is quite disappointing.

    It's also pretty unusual for a project Treble phone. With treble, if an update fails it's supposed to revert back to the previous good version of the operating system.

    So I returned the phone and got a brand new one as a replacement. I only had the phone for 16 days. I'll update it all tonight and see how it goes. Here's hoping all goes well.

  • I used the steps in this thread to connect to the fastboot: https://old.reddit.com/r/Nokia/comments/a5i0au/androidone_download_mode_stuck/

    Then I used the commands above in this thread and it brought me to the try again and factory reset screen and i used to volume button down to go to factory reset and the power button to select it.
