I have a BLU Studio Selfie 2 with Android 6.0 preinstalled. I cannot find ANY method of unlocking the bootloader. I've tried quite literally every method I can find on XDA and the web, and I cannot get it to root. Even though I select the "allow unlocking bootloader" option in Developer Options, when I power on into the boot menu it won't let me use Volume Up to select bootloader mode ... so I can't flash a custom ROM, and I can't backup the stock ROM. I also read on the web that Android 6.0 has more strict methods for preventing root access, so maybe I should downgrade to an earlier Android version first?
Regardless, there is very little I've found through weeks of searching that applies directly to this model phone, and nothing has been successful [yet] in rooting it. Can you point me to a method that might work?
Man .... we can even unlock bootloader of latest phones like pixel , one plus 3T .... then what the heck are these mediatek phones .. .. they have the lowest security .... the process you tried to do may be wrong thats why bootloader is not unlocked ... ...... i guess i will make a video for step by step tutorial to unlock bootloader for blu devices ...... most of people are asking me for that ... wait for 1-2 days
If you use Smartphone Flash tool to flash the custom recovery, and then use your phone's original boot.img in the ROM, you don't need to unlock your Bootloader. For root just flash the SuperSU ZIP and it will generate a rooted boot image and flash it. All that shouldn't need an unlocked bootloader if I'm correct.
OK, so I just emailed BLU about it, and this is what they said:
"We don't support unlocking of the bootloader or tampering of software. Therefore, we will not be able to provide you with any information. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused".
So, it basically sounds like they did do something.
Also, this reminded me of another BLU phone owner who could not even get his device to show up in fastboot devices, even after installing the proper drivers.
