I've been searching for a long time on this but can't get an answer that's current. So my question is: If I have an OTA 4.3 updated phone with the stupid locked bootloader, and I want to install a custom ROM, is there a way to do that yet? I know I can root using saferoot, which I've already done, but I want to install cyanogenmod. Any way to do this or am I still stuck? If I am still stuck, is anyone working on it anymore, or is it a lost cause? Thanks

As far as I know a locked bootloader equals no custom recovery(CWM,TWRP,Philz). This in turn means no custom rom(Cyanogenmod or any other ROM).

Device model?

That would help determine if there is any support out there for unlocking the bootloader.

I'm facing the same issue with a Huawei H881C aka Huawei Ascend Plus (Tracfone version)

Dang locked bootloaders... why do they torture us so?

At least we have root...
