    I mainly want to unlock to be able to install linux and run, my phone has 6GB ram + 128GB internal + microSD; so it's basically a mini-computer in my hand that I can't use until I unlock the bootloader. Oh yeah, except that it's huwaei phone so unlocking isn't possible anymore anyways..

  2. Does unlocked bootloader gives you further security and it is safe??

    Just a short advice guys
    Never do not unlock your bootloader because i unlocked it on Xiaomi Mi A2 and google uncertified my device

    I always want to root my devices because its the only way to get full Admin rights, just as i & everyone does on there PC's .. It is everyone's right to have full Admin level control especially when paying over 1000$ for a mobile or tablet device..

    Mobile & Tablet devices should be treated no different than a PC, but supposedly the loop hole comes from a regulation regarding CD format & Disc players, basically a mobile device is still considered to be a 'device that holds & plays copyrighted media' which in mobile terms would be Google services, products & Android, apps etc.. PC is not of course..

    If Android just stayed Android pure Open Source instead of selling to Google then it would not be so easy for manufacturer's to restrict devices..

    The saddest part is the US variants are locked literally the only thing that brought me to android because we could customize and do whatever we wanted is locked by carriers.

    My little cheap Hisense phone is what android is supposed to be. All I did was enable the developer settings and it literally gave me a setting right there.

    2018 Anyone?

    Just revived an upgraded Motorola from my provider and I've still been using my older model for games to keep my new one running smooth, I revived an update on my older model and now it's just starting up and shutting down continually.

    I'm pretty tech savvy when it comes to phones but I've never come across this bootloader screen ever when trying to reboot a phone, under bootloader it says device locked any reason why?

    Does this mean the provider of my phone 'which I've paid for by the way' have locked it?

    Replies would be appreciated!

    Thanks Steve.

    It's harder to relock or find information on doing so unlocking it was easy because the company released everything we needed
