The OnePlus 5T is very similar to the OnePlus 5; for information specific to the 5T, also read OnePlus 5T (oneplus-dumpling).

Entering fastboot mode

The OnePlus 5/5T uses fastboot as its flashing protocol.

Unplug from USB, hold Power and Volume Up until you see FastBoot Mode text.

Installation

Prerequisites

Fastboot

Install fastboot on your host, refer to Google for instructions.

Unlocking the bootloader

WARNING: Doing this will delete ALL your data on the device, so backup all your data before continuing!

Before flashing postmarketOS you have to unlock your bootloader. The following is all that's needed to do this:

1. Go to Settings, About and tap on the Build number 7 times until you get a message saying you are now a developer.

2. Go back to Settings, System and Developer options to enable OEM unlocking

3. Refer to entering fastboot mode above and re-attach the USB cable afterwards. Run the following command on your host:

fastboot oem unlock

4. Read the message displayed on your device screen, once happy confirm the unlock and continue to installing postmarketOS.

Installing postmarketOS

Follow the usual flashing guide via pmbootstrap.

Note NOTE: ONLY choose alpine kernel if you accept it will have MUCH less overall working features, otherwise always pick mainline!
Downstream kernel port is also still available as cheeseburger-downstream codename, but usage of it is strongly discouraged and it's completely unmaintained!

Incorrect touchscreen orientation

On some user interfaces such as Plasma Mobile you may have the touchscreen incorrectly oriented by 180 degrees (upside down); to fix that run the following in a root shell:

echo 'ACTION=="add|change", KERNEL=="event[0-9]*", ATTRS{name}=="Synaptics s3508", ENV{LIBINPUT_CALIBRATION_MATRIX}="-1 0 1 0 -1 1"' | sudo tee /etc/udev/rules.d/21-oneplus5-ts.rules

After that simply reboot to apply the new calibration matrix. Now the touchscreen should at least match the incorrectly upside-down display output so you can go in Settings > Display Configuration and select the inverted screen rotation option which will rotate the display to match the expected normal display rotation.

I've still not added this as a part of the Device package because it causes the rotation to be broken in other environments, especially so in Xorg-based ones, but if that really remains the only problematic one perhaps it can be added as a subpackage with some install_if directive.

See issue: https://invent.kde.org/teams/plasma-mobile/issues/-/issues/160

Recently (2022-11-15) an MR to kwin was merged that should address this issue: https://invent.kde.org/plasma/kwin/-/merge_requests/2081; could possibly be backported to v5.26.4?

Modem stability

If Wi-Fi disconnects for any reason (including sleep, signal strength loss etc.) the modem remoteproc will crash and may not recover until a reboot.

The ipa kernel module has been blocked from auto-loading due to causing various overall issues with the system. If you want to test ModemManager already (since mainline kernel v6.0) though you can just load it manually:

$ sudo modprobe ipa
$ sudo rc-service modemmanager restart

LEDs

The LEDs present on the device can be controlled via sysfs by writing values to their brightness control files as root. Here are some examples:

Screen backlight brightness (0-255, 0-1023 on 5T)

echo 255 > /sys/class/backlight/c994000.dsi0/brightness

Notification light brightness (0-255)

echo 255 > /sys/class/leds/notification-led/brightness

Notification light color (0-255, R G B), e.g. green

echo 0 255 0 > /sys/class/leds/notification-led/multi_intensity

The backlight for capacitive buttons can be enabled (1) or disabled (0)

echo 1 > /sys/class/leds/white\:kbd_backlight/brightness

Control of the rear camera flashlight isn't yet possible; it's missing a driver on mainline.
