Does not work using stock recovery there is no install from SD selection. So if I flash cwm am I going to lose everything? Or am I missing something?

Obviously. Flash a custom recovery. You won't lose anything.

Thanks! Just needed to know if I'd lose everything. I normally used to do it all at once, so I never did find out if rooting or flashing new recovery would wipe. Thanks!

I'm trying this on SolusOS, which is Debian-based, and I can't flash the custom recovery. You say to download the latest version of the toolkit, but I already have it and it doesn't help. The toolkit acts like it's been flashed, but when I try to reboot to it to flash a rom, it's still the standard stock Android recovery.

Thanks. That was amazing! Very easy and helpful. The only problem i got was to boot into recovery. Thanks again for sharing your great work!

Just wanted to say i don't know why i had such a hard time finding something for Linux. I tried the windows toolkits and all failed and trying to find a tutorial on Linux and unrooting is difficult. I might have been just ignorant and not seeing them but i cant stand windows and wanted to unlock/flash stock image in Linux.

Your toolkit worked freaking awesome. I still would like the method to push all the files in the terminal to learn but i have been having such issues with my phone and been looking for something in linux for about 3 hrs and fell into this. THANK YOU SO MUCH I was really about to go insane.

If anyone knows of a tutorial on how to do this manually i would really appreciate it. The more i use the terminal and get use to it the better. Not taking anything away from the dev on this it work FLAWLESSLY again thank you my family can now come back home LOL.

Did notice the command

sudo bash ./unltlauncher.sh wasn't the same as the downloaded file

so i had to change it to sudo bash ./unltlauncher100.sh but that was it.

Again thank you

Only unlocking causes data wipe / factory reset. Rooting or flashing recovery won't wipe your data.

Added support for TWRP
I wanted support for TWRP so I added it in for all the devices. I only tried the toro one but all others should work unless there are typos. I changed references to CW recovery to just recovery in the options menues too.

If I use this to lock bootloader and flash stock ROM, will the rack that I have flashed newer radios matter? Thanks.
