After extracting the Fastboot ROM files, you will find multiple flash files other than flash-all.bat. To unbrick the One plus 7 Pro the only file you need is flash-all-partitions-fastboot.bat. However, depending on your situation you may get by using any of the other flash files as well. In case of hard brick, when nothing seems to work, you may need to use flash-all-partitions.bat.

flash-all-partitions-fastboot.bat

This .bat will flash all possible partitions through Fastboot (Except persist), there are some criticals partitions that can’t be flashed through Fastboot.

flash-only-persist.bat

This .bat will flash only persist partition in Fastboot mode (This is good for people that have problems with sensor).

flash-all-partitions-recovery-criticals.bat

This .bat will boot the TWRP and will flash criticals partitions, use this carefully.

flash-system-boot-vendor.bat

This .bat is the same as older flash-all.bat and so it will flash only vendor, system, and boot.

flash-all-partitions.bat

This .bat will run flash-all-partitions-fastboot.bat, then flash-only-persist.bat and then flash-all-partitions-recovery-criticals.bat.

Hurry!!!! You have Successfully Unbricked your OnePlus 7 Pro Android Smartphone and restored Stock OxygenOS ROM.
