Also I'm new, I hope I'm posting in the right thread.
Now onto the details, I've been trying to root my phone lately and so far absolutely nothing is working at all! I've not seen anyone whatsoever on XDA to root this specific phone. Mostly V3 and Xshot series
I've tried every single rooting app there is, but I noticed that my efforts are worthless because my phone has an impenetrable bootloader! Of course I immediately head to the internet and found about ADB and Fastboot. Now I've been trying to confirm my suspicions about a locked bootloader by using the "device-info" command on ADB, then I get
Now since I was trying to unlock the bootloader and to this day I absolutely CANNOT bust through it. Whenever I use the "oem-unlock" command, it will always say "FAIL: check device or oem lock"
I forgot most of the commands I used on ADB, (first time using it, actually ) but the commands I used were normally the ones used to unlock a phone's bootloader.
Going to their forums, they always say that they do not allow their users to tamper with their devices and I was this close to giving up, but after going to the phone's recovery mode, I immediately see at the bottom "The Phone: not root" (yes that's what it exactly says, that's not my grammar) which means that it SHOULD be possible to root it in the first place, and because of that I have not stopped trying.
However every last method I tried failed and I am desperate enough to come here, to XDA forums where I learned to root my now 6+ year old Samsung Galaxy Y.
I really need your help, guys.
