I want to install B512 on my P6, too. I understand that I need to install a B1xx firmware first, but I'm not sure if I need to unlock the bootloader to do it. If anyone can shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated. I rooted my phone through the one-click methods found online, those software say my phone is rooted but the app Root Checker Basic says its not, how can I be sure?. No custom recovery installed.

Thanks.

If you are running B508 then tou should alredy have unlocked bootloader and you can install the B512 without a problem.

no..i dont think so..
but i think you missed to load the bootloader at first with the cmd "adb reboot bootloader"..
then "fastboot oem unlock UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU"
this is what i did with the b125 when i got my phone..

Isn't "adb reboot bootloader" simply the command to boot into bootloader? That's the first command I entered. If hadn't, I wouldn't have been able to enter "fastboot oem unlock UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU". Would I? I might be wrong
