In this guide, we’ll show you the steps to fix the Automatic Detection of DDR Failed error in the MSM Download Tool. OnePlus has always been the go-to choice for tech enthusiasts due to the plethora of ROMs and tweaks that it gets blessed with. This happens due to the fact that its unbrick tool is readily available both to developers as well as members of the public.

The MSM Tool sometimes hits a few roadblocks as well. For example, Sahara Communication and Stuck in Param Preload–issues that we have already documented–are two such problems. However, a new issue has just made its way: Recently I was trying to unbrick my device, and after installing the EDL Drivers, the MSM Tool showed the device as connected.
