Rooting Status :
Bootloader unlocked : Yes

So that's mean my device unlocked !!

No. It only means unlock ability.

Is should say bootloader unlockable yes (would make life easier)

Just remember to take ta backup before unlocking

To see if you have already unlocked go to service info / service test and look at the merlin key, active (locked) or error (unlocked)

I'm on CM and mine just clears the code as soon as I type it completely... What could be wrong?

Under Marlin, I have [Unknown Error] [Active] Would this mean that I am still unlocked or I successfully locked it?
