Petr D.: Ok, I will have to check some details with our escalation team. It will be a moment
Petr D.: I am sorry but the offer is not valid for devices with unlock bootloader
Elsworth: ok, Well thats a bit unfair
Elsworth: If i knew that was going to be the case i would of got a nexus device :-/
As it says in the title, I was too anxious to root my M8 so it was the first thing I did after opening the box. Now after I have rooted the phone I wanted to redeem my google drive offer but oh suprise it says Unable to verify the offer for this device please contact htc support for further assistance... So I guess I am screwed now and i can't get this offer anymore because the bootloader is unlocked right? or is there anyway to get it back to stock to redeem it?
Here is the info google gives about this :
**If I purchased a used/refurbished HTC device or unlocked the bootloader on my device, can I redeem the offer?
No. The offer is only available to original buyer of a device over its lifetime. Users who unlock the bootloader on their device are not eligible to receive this offer.**
I can verify that it works if you go into Google drive before unlocking the bootloader
