READ THE WHOLE THREAD BEFORE CONTINUING or FLASHING THE ZIP ! AS THIS ONLY WORKS DESCENT FOR G VERSION , I ONLY RECOMMEND TO DO SO ! USING IT ON A U-VERSION (B19/B25) MIGHT BRICK YOUR PHONE. ALSO TESTED & WORKING ON Project New World (Oreo) on G VERSION

I am not responsible for damaging/bricking your phone or other related stuff…DO MAKE A FULL BACKUP !
ONLY FOR A2017G & also on A2017G B32 Oreo PNW
DON'T USE ON B13 (MF5.0) BECAUSE IT DOES NOT WORK !!! Tested it myself.
Only to use whether flashed Universal B15 (or B32 on PNW) or Stock Bootloaders before.

Don't use on encrypted phones and remove security pattern before flash
Always backup your data. In case you have to format data you'll have a spare one to restore


EDIT : made a flashable zip : Remove Bootloader Unlock Warning on Axon 7G : https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=745849072291698596

As @Choose an username... asked to bring this to your attention again hereby a fairly easy and safe method to get rid of that annoying "unlocked bootloader" warning.
I did mentioned this before in the earlier days but perhaps its usefull to post it again. And if you're planning to stay a while on your rom this might help to have a clean boot.
I performed this steps often on my G and imo are safe to do.

So, take a look HERE
Prepare with necessary files (if you already haven't from before )
( Be on twrp 3.1.1.0 (3.2.1.0) )
Just perform steps 6 to 14 again (NOTE ! : If you get a permissions denied issue, try doing these steps while your device is in TWRP )
After that just type "fastboot reboot" and you should have a clean boot.
-------------------------------------------------
B) Unlock the bootloader
Q: Why do I need to unlock the bootloader?
A: With an unlocked bootloader, you can install custom ROMs.


1) Go to https://mega.nz/#F!rcFCQZ7C!vn457hU1zDwc0uVpvm5otw and download the aboot.img file from there (1024Kb). Put it in the same folder you used in the previous process
2) Download this file: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=529152257862665656
3) Unzip the file and copy/cut the file called "fastboot_unlock.img"
4) Paste that file in the folder where "adb.exe", "axon7tool.exe", "recovery.img", "recovery.bin" and "aboot.img" are located
5) If there's none open, open a new command window in that folder again (Shift + right-click and "open command window here")
6) Type "adb push aboot.img /sdcard/" and hit enter
7) Type "adb push fastboot_unlock.img /sdcard/" and hit enter
8) Type "adb shell dd if=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/fbop of=/sdcard/fbop_lock.img" and hit enter
9) Type "adb shell dd if=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/aboot of=/sdcard/aboot_lock.img" and hit enter
10) Type "adb pull /sdcard/fbop_lock.img" and hit enter
11) Type "adb pull /sdcard/aboot_lock.img" and hit enter
12) Type "adb shell dd if=/sdcard/fastboot_unlock.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/fbop" and hit enter
13) Type "adb shell dd if=/sdcard/aboot.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/aboot" and hit enter
14) Type "Adb reboot bootloader" and hit enter to go to the bootloader

Can we not create flashable ZIPs for this to save Time? Something with AROMA to choose the Specific Device Files would be cool or nah? Let Me know if there is interest on this. I could help with the Scripts...

Thnx for your reply.
But AFAIK this procedure might not work on the U version but not sure ( afaik no go on A2017). So therefore i just used the "known" familiar bootloader files.
But if it would work, so someone should test their specific files on U version, an AROMA zip would be interesting to make.
I can i you want but feel free to join in if A2017U and A2017 or good to go
But then again we have to get some feedback on this.

First of all a happy new Year!
Think i will take a look on it in the next Days, would be cool if someone could test which Variants are supporting this. I see a flashable ZIP could be very useful for People who are switching the OS a lot of times (like i do). I own the G Version BTW.

At the boot hold the Vol-Button and Power. And now you cant see the Bootloader-Message. Otherwise flash this zip: http://www120.zippyshare.com/v/xYBio6uW/file.html

I dont know if its work on the A2017U oder A2017 Devices. But it works definitely on the A2017G.

Happy new Year too and best wishes to all here on XDA !
Yeah such a zip for all variants should be handy. A A2017U user should test this method.
Anyway on G it works.

This zip works on G version (not sure about other versions) but only when coming from Universal BL imo. When using the B13 bootstack f.e. like on Mifavor 5.0 this ZIP would not work imo. So be carefull flashing it. As said, when on Universal BL this should work.
Thanks !

And if i have stock B08/B09 bootloader, not the universal BL?

Okay then in another way: which bootloader was installed before you flashed your linked zip?
I messed up my phone completely one time with this "removal" from the first thread a few month ago.
So a wanna get sure this works with stock bootloader and not only the universal bootloader.

I also have the A2017G.

If you're not sure about the zip he provided, just don't use it
Do the above steps in 1st post and you'll be good to go. It takes only a minute or so, just copy paste in adb
Tip : just boot your phone in twrp before you do the steps. So you'll be sure about permissions

Better use @raystef66 method to remove the message.
Owning a A2017G isn't the only prerequisite to flash this file; like already said it depends on bootloader version, device encryption and probably much more ...
As you said, flashing this sort of stuff is too hasardous. Just take a look at the thread concerning this remover; lot of users "bricked" their devices with this stuff.
