Anyone have any direction on this?
I have successfully followed guides to rooting my old LG G4, but I wouldn't consider myself intimately familiar with the processes for these things.
That being said I was looking to flash Eelo OS to a refurbished device and settled on a Galaxy S9+.
Phone arrives, and upon beginning the process I realize my fatal mistake -- I have the G965U model with the locked bootloader (I realize I mistook carrier unlocked for bootloader unlocked.)
Not easily deterred I dived into searching for a workaround, but I haven't seen anything that gives me hope. The phone also is running Android 10, so if I'm not mistaken, that complicates things, (no?).
So if anyone has advice or a guide they can direct me to that would be of immense value.
Alternatively, if the process would be overly cumbersome, I still have the option to return my refurbished SM-G965U. Were I to do that, assuming I didn't just go with the international model, does anyone have any other recommendations on a device compatible with Eelo?
Thanks for the time.
