man...bootloader and rooting is different things. rooting is to gain superuser permission...while the bootloader lets you flash roms unofficially

Insted of making new thread i felt i should revive this one. Gta raja pls change this thread to bootloader unloking thread. As you all know gionee has a locked bootloader.
And we can reach nowhere untill bootloader is unlocked

bro since we are able to flash custom kernel build from sources we can say bootloader is unlocked otherwise we were not able to flash kernel...but we are little confused since the kernel we are flashing doesnt boot up

here are my reason to believe boot-loader is locked.

1. I installed Chinese CWM it worked fine but after reboot i was back to stock recovery...

2. installed TWRP blank screen but after reboot back to stock...

3. nobody got source build kernel working....

I,m pretty much sure bootloader is locked. trying unlock method of nexus 5 right now
