:
bootloader 707 will unlock phone automatically if start booting with ANY unsigned boot.img

I did so:

1. flash new 707 EMUI recovery from this archive (unpack & start .bat)
2. repack boot.img from 707 without signature (may take here)
3. flash fastboot_707 (here)

Code:
fastboot flash boot <you path>\fastboot.img
answer must be:
sending 'boot' (4730 KB)... OKAY
writing 'boot'... OKAY

4. reboot
Code:
fastboot reboot-bootloader
rebooting into bootloader... OKAY
5, flash boot
Code:
fastboot flash boot  <you path>\boot-707-unsign.img
sending 'boot' (4730 KB)... OKAY
writing 'boot'... OKAY
6. reboot phone
Code:
fastboot reboot
rebooting.
..
in this moment (boot unsigned kernel) takes place Unlock
phone is started with new kernel (3.0.8-50)

7. back to fastboot
Code:
adb reboot-bootloader
8. check the unlock
Code:
fastboot oem get-lockstate
... INFOunlocked
OKAY
9. back to android and enjoy!
Code:
fastboot reboot
rebooting...

Many thanks VKuk!!!
Where did you get the fastboot_707? (Flashing the b707 update.zip will do the job right?)
It works only by flashing a boot.img via fastboot, or it will work also by flashing it via recovery?

Need fastboot with signature, I extract from update.zip/update.app
Also, you can flash update.zip via recovery, but maybe you will need another unsigned boot for unlock
You may just remove first 0x7ff byte from any boot.img from stock rom or use DD copy from device.

I've noticed that after unlock, if you flash back a signed boot.img, the status is changed to "relocked" instead of just "locked", maybe it'll void the warranty!
PS: a little typo in vkuk instructions (thank you man!) -> fastboot flash fastboot fastboot.img

Hi,

which update.zip/update.app ??? Can you write step by step pls ?

I did flash new 707 EMUI recovery from your archiv, but I found that this revovery does not have all commands for example wipe dalvik cache, mount system, card and format any etc.

I try flash for example HwDeskClock.zip to Batty ROM and recovery write Install failed - signature verification failed

When (and if) use warranty hardly have be possible to determine the status of the bootloader
Try again flash fastboot or other fastboot , although the probability is small, the status is not stored in it, but in nvm or hidden partitions

Its not a chinese recovery, its a stock recovery, you need chose genorecovery in menu for install not a huawei signed zip
