I ran into the very same issue with my friends phone today. Stock Lollipop 5.1 was installed and the bootload was 0x0007. It was the 4G release.
Anyway, I did the unlocking crap with their website: Every time, I got the "not eligible" message. I did copy the text from console, put it in Notepad++, removed the crap (bootloader) and spaces and converted it to a oneliner. Nothing, nada, it just didnt work.
I tried Firefox and crappy IE. It made no difference... Finally, I just copied it from the console, inserted it directely into the input field of the website, removed the unnecessary text like advised and BOOM it worked. I have no clue how that made any difference, but apparently it did. I even copied out the text of that input field and compared it to the one i created in notepad++ just minutes ago: It was identical.
Bottom line: If this doesn't work for you, just try and try again. The website is apparently broken and unreliable and just sometimes works for some of us!
Different day, different result. Tried again 2 days later and bam, I now have it unlocked.
I now have my phone TWRP'd and rooted.
Some questions though:
1. Now that I have TWRP and my end-goal was rooted to be able to use adaway. Any reason I should relock the bootloader now? Does it clear the phone contents when I lock it back up or only when I unlock it? Will it clear the phone each time?
2. Why did this phone need the bootloader unlocked to install twrp when there's several other phones that will install twrp without having to unlock the bootloader?
