I'm really surprised. Minutes ago I tried to get the unlock code for my Prime Exclusive phone, expecting "a miracle" but indeed: it happened. Can anyone else try to get the unlock from Motorola's site to confirm that is working now for Amazon Prime Exclusive Moto G5+? I'm a little afraid of "bricking" my phone

Sorry for the images... I couln't find the button for attachments

You have probably gotten a "golden" IMEI... we know a few Amazon phones leak through the system and can be unlocked, we hear rumors from time to time of someone getting lucky.

I don't have any more Amazon Prime devices here anymore, but would be curious to have others try but I expect you just got lucky. Be aware that returning to stock after modifying the device could be problematic as we have no firmware images from the amazon software channel and a different software channel won't flash, but custom ROM's work.

Remember, you have gotten the code... so your Moto warranty is voided no matter what you do (although Amazon will likely honor it if it's within return window). Tread carefully, few people have been in your shoes. :/

I hardly read up on my G5 Plus here because the phone was unrootable, but I thought I'd come see what's new and WOW.....how cool is this. Now I'm unlocked, have TWRP, Magisk, and I'm happy with the phone again, even though it's not my daily driver. I had a fun afternoon.

I know we don't have the stock image to restore, and I DON'T EVEN CARE. LOL I'll have to put my TWRP backup somewhere safe or just use custom ROMs. I was too excited to NOT toy with the phone today.

I just tried mine this morning and I can confirm that it works!

If you are reading this and haven't got your unlock code, at the least, you need to do it soon. Just make sure to read ALL the Moto disclaimers and especially these forums so you know what you're getting into.

Power off your device completlely and then press and hold the volume down button for 2 or 3 seconds.While still holding down volume down, press and release the power key. That should bring you into fastboot mode.
