Hello good people, i have the Sensation XE beats by dre and I'm currently stuck at the very last step of unlocking my bootloader. I have Ubuntu 13.04 andd i get the following error message: error: cannot load 'Unlock_code.bin': No such file or directory, - from this entry: sudo fastboot flash /home/Name/Downloads/Unlock_code.bin. I have tried various other combinations, i have a suspicion that its a pathway problem, but i can't figure it out, its my 5 straight hour trying to work this out, would really appreaciate the help. Also smashed my fist into the keyboard. Hopefully some one will take pitty from this last remark and help me.
Kind regards Shabibs.

Just a question in the /home/NAME/Downloads/Unlock_code.bin did you infact change the NAME to your user name and is the file Unlock_code.bin really in your Downloads folder ?

If you dont know your username you can find it out like this:

Press CTRL + ALT + T

When the terminal opens you'll see something like this
Code:
ajax@home:~$
Where ajax is my user name and home is my computer name.

so in my case destination would go like this /home/ajax/Downloads/Unlock_code.bin or even simpler without user name ~/Downloads/Unlock_code.bin. you can choose which ever method you like.

Well UNIX systems are famous for the file hierarchy system if it tells you its not there its most likely not there. Another thing that comes to mind is check captial letters ( for instance user name is always lowercase and folder within your home are all caps ), second maybe try tabbing to the file for ex. /ho[TAB] it should finish to /home and do that for the rest of the path. Im sorry if you think that i am condescending im really not im just not aware how familiar with the linux environment.... i just thougth of something do CTRL + ALT + T type sudo fastboot flash then drag and drop the Unlock_code.bin into the terminal window will write out the path for you.

unknown partition '/home/name/Downloads/Unlock_code.bin'
error: cannot determine image filename for '/home/name/Downloads/Unlock_code.bin'

The first error i dont understand but the second sounds interesting.

you are typing this
Code:
sudo fastboot flash /home/name/Downloads/Unlock_code.bin
you should be typing this
Code:
sudo fastboot flash unlocktoken /home/name/Downloads/Unlock_code.bin
you are missing unlocktoken part in the command.
