To your point. No root without unlocked BL. Now I wasn't aware of that google authentificator thing. Can you not even choose to restore backups from a different phone?
I use CN rom, so no luxury to use google backup for me. Zui cloud actually does an ok job.
Sorry, what I meant was that I messed up. 2FA is 2-factor authentication, when I sign into Github for example, aside from the username/password I would have to supply a one time code that the Google Authenticator app generates. Without it I would not be able to access whatever services I enabled 2FA.
Thanks for confirming that unlocked bootloader is required for root. In that case, I figure I will just unlock the bootloader again since I now know that it's possible to relock bootloader and have a working phone without that warning screen at boot, and I need the Google Authenticator app with previous settings back. Again thanks for all the help!
