Hi,

The only way to get your phone's bootloader unlocked if the unlock status says no, is paying for it.

Now, you can't enter fastboot? That's because your bootloader isn't unlocked!

Hope I helped and a ha a nice day!

I believe there are a couple or ROM s out there for your J, that don't need an unlocked bootloader. Just search through the forum!

Hope I helped and have a nice day

By unlocking the bootloader . Plus, you only need fastboot for flashing a kernel with recovery.

Have a nice day
