    Thread Unlock Bootloader: No (any way around this?)

    There are lots of posts out there like this that provide instructions on how to unlock the bootloader, and many other posts that say you can't if Service Settings reports "Unlock Bootloader: No". My problem is that my phone reports 'No' and I very much want to flash a custom rom. Can I do this...

    casouzaj, thank you again for such detailed advice! Unfortunately, I got stuck on bootloader unlocked: No. AHH! I can't believe I have a phone that is unflashable.... I am researching ways around this, but haven't had success yet.

    Thanks, casouzaj for the tip. TA backed-up. I feel foolish asking this (as I've been flashing roms since I first got an i9100), but what's the procedure (it's not detailed in the OP) coming from stock? Do I need to root/unlock/both (if yes, is there a recommended strategy)? I understand from...

    I'm just about to move from stock to carbon6 - should I back up DRM before I do this? I've seen lots of posts that suggest this is no longer an issue, and others that say I absolutely should back them up. I'm hoping someone can give me a definitive answer as to why I'd need them on carbon6? I...

    That's 4 hours of limited use. Battery utilization shows android Of is using most of it. In the lineage thread a number of users suggest the June release is much nicer to the battery and have rolled back.
