Hi Guys I have been messing with Bootloader unlock ideas and wanted to share some of my thoughts on it. I really dont know much about it but here is what i have found so far

I know that if i reboot to fastboot mode with
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
I can run getvar all and see this unlock_code
Code:
fastboot getvar all
(bootloader)    max-download-size: 134217728

I also know that the command to unlock the bootloader
Code:
fastboot flash unlock unlock.bin
Code:
C:\Development\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20130729\sdk\platform-tools>fastboot fl
ash unlock "H:\Tom Stuff\Amazon Fire 7in 5th gen Ford\unlock.bin"
target reported max download size of 134217728 bytes
sending 'unlock' (0 KB)...
OKAY [  0.015s]
writing 'unlock'...
FAILED (remote: unlock code error)
finished. total time: 0.028s
I also ran idme print with root access and got back this
Code:
shell@ford:/ $ su
root@ford:/ # idme print

At this point i have tried creating a couple different unlock.bin's with this unlock code and even changing it to decimal instead of hexadecimal but really i am lost here was hoping someone with a little more info and experiance might be able to help thanks.

Seems interesting but I doubt it will be this easy.

You've probably tried this, but use the unlock code as a parameter, so fastboot flash unlock 0xABCD etc. Also, fastboot flash unlock isn't a stock fastboot command, it might be Amazon's , but not stock. Try fastboot oem unlock, or the new commands, fastboot flashing unlock or fastboot flashing unlock-critical.

Also try fastboot flash unlocktoken unlock.bin

I don't have a Windows installation ATM. Has anyone tried sp flash tool for mediatek devices?

EDIT: I played a bit with MTK droid tools to create a scatter file, but no luck (so it seems SP tools are a no go). I also tried some shady Mediatek tools. Also with no luck. My take is that unlocking via fastboot may not work at all. Maybe look into mediatek stuff to unlock the Fire.

Keep at it guys! Apparently Android 6.0/CM13 isn't doable until bootloader unlocked. This is probably best tablet around $50 with probably fairly large sales. Worth the effort.

As far as I know, that unlock code that fastboot gives is much like Motorola's unlock setup... The device's code is hashed/SHA/etc with a master key, spits out a device unlock code that you can give fastboot.

We should just need kexec.
