Unbrick after roll-back

I'm not sure it if is the best way to recover phone but it works for me.


I had a problem with "stuck on Nokia logo" after roll-back from Android P preview to Android 8.1, and probably I found a solution.


To reboot the phone from Nokia logo You need to press and hold volume up + power buttons.

When display goes black:

a) press and holds volume up + volume down + power (phone can reboot few times without recovery mode but should finally go there). 

b) press and hold volume down + power buttons (boot to the download mode) and then point a)

*I'm not sure, probably point a) should work without point b) but I fought with it around 1h to enter the recovery menu and tried multiple combinations.


In recovery menu try to wipe data, after reload wait few minutes (as while the first bootup). 

If it still doesn't work, enter to the recovery menu and flash Your device again (with Oreo image). And then wipe data and reboot. 



 Can you tell me how to flash an Oreo with Fastboot?

I have extracted a nb0 and now have a folder with 70 files.

Thank's!


Great it worked for me thank you

 *Apply update from ADB
Now send the package you want to apply to the device with 'adb sideload filename'

Flashing from recovery mode don't work!

I'm on Nokia logo, can't turn off the phone and can't get to the black screen. How to fix it?

When your flashing Nokia logo, connect your phone using usb, press volume up & power button simultaneously untill screen shows no command, now unplug usb & then press volume up key & power button once or twice you'll get recovery mode, try installing package again & use wipe data & reboot phone option. That should to it. Thanks
