I want to know if someone can help me unlocking the bootloader of this device for installing custom rom/apps

It has an Intel Cherry Trail Processor
I can boot to fastboot using the Vol- and Power together and tried the following commands

fastboot oem unlock - returns OKAY but doesn't unlock the bootloader
fastboot oem lock
- returns that the device is already in the required state
fastboot flash twrp.img
- returns that it cannot be possible since the device is locked
fastboot boot twrp.img
- goes to the amazon logo and then right to fastboot again
fastboot getvar all

I can also boot into DNX FASTBOOT MODE using all 3 buttons, but I can't do anything in that mode, but the device is recognized using fastboot devices
Does anyone know how to use dnx fastboot mode? Or what is it?

Thank you

Wrong command
Hey! You should be using fastboot OEM unlock, not fastboot OEM lock. Also the unit doesn't have a way to enable adb from what I can tell.

Note: I have NO experience hacking amazon echo
Could you use the same method we use to hack the fire HD8 or HD10 with the, then flash the bootrom, then enter a hacked fastboot? From what it looks like, recovery mode on the show looks like the same one used on the HD10.
