You can flash full firmware but only certain versions depend on device, some devices like S21 can only be unlocked on v1 has patched firmware from v4.
Yes you cant downgrade, Im working on solution. Will let you know if we can do it on newer versions.

Contact me on telegramLast question. Is there custom ROMs available for it yet? I need to get the S9 dll driver for Odin. I am waiting for a new USB port to come from Amazon today so I can use Odin. If maybe a stable lineageOS is available I'd be happy to pay you. I'm sure I could slap it together myself when I have time. But I'd need to make sure the phone doesn't update while my son uses it in the mean time. Is there a script I can run to disable ota updates? It's been awhile using a Samsung (since s5 days) I'm on a pixel 4xl now! Thanks for everything btw! I'll pay for a extra beer in the transaction.
You really don't know how it's done? I suppose I'm assuming but it's simply used for the phones to be fixed using factory binary. Makes the "please get approval to use factory binary" to stop appearing and allows the factory binary to be flashed (combination) but obviously since it opens up device for custom flashing...Honestly I have researched various samsung licenses and have even purchased a number of them that are available (knox manage, knox mobile enrollment, knox configure, efota, even custom sdk) and not one of them has the ability to purchase or generate "tokens."
Believe it or not once upon a time (like maybe Note 7 days) Samsung had a lot of factories n such in places like China. During this time you could find just about anything. Lots ppl had gspn access and could get all sorts of stuff. Of course this was pre token days.
Fast forward a bit and Samsung actually shut a lot of its factories in foreign countries and cracked down on the leaks. Nowadays theres very few that have access and even then they usually dont "leak" anything anymore.
My point is, you cant just set up a "fake business" and purchase a license to generate tokens. In fact, samsung considera tokens and even combo firmware as "leaked" internal files.
I am sure there is a big vetting process before a company can even get to a point where they can purchase a license to generate these types of tokens of which they are very strict. Only big time well established companies have this sort of access because this level access (in their eyes) is only to be used for engineering purposes. I imagine big carriers maybe aces like asurion, the government etc. have a need for it.
Even some knox services you have tto apply then a samsung rep has to meet with you to discuss the application before they would even decide what level access you should have. Most small no name companies surely are denied.
Companies that get access to tools like Daseul would be nice but in all my years dealing with samsung and all sorts of sources ive not met one person with access to it. Even then its crazy money im sure just for a base license then they pay for each token.. or they buy a lot of tokens then when they run out they have to buy more.
But not sure if I implied it was done by a source in samsung but if I did I no longer feel that way. If that was the case then newer devices on latest oneui versions etc wouldnt matter and could be unlocked. Since they cant, that tells me its not an internal source but some sort of exploit. Either way, itd be nice if i knew hkw it was done but i dont. I have tried but its not my area of expertise.
Hello, contact me on xda or telegram
I guess I'm screwed for now.This thread is @svetius approved
NOTE: The OneUI 3.1 bootloader (march security update and later) will bypass the unlock token, Do not update or bump your bootloader version. So If you ever take the update and you can downgrade go for it. And you will remains unlocked.
NOTE2: Device Shipped with One UI 3.1 like S21 can be unlocked on V1 bootloader. A32, A43 and A52 5G with V1 & V2 bootloader.
NOTE3: Im not a part of sampwnd so dont conflict between us.

This service will acquire you to unlock samsung bootloader. Allow you to flash custom firmwares, kernels and recoveries. This service will wipe the device entirely of all data, please remove your SD card, and backup all information that you may need, remove all accounts before service.
This service supports all current models that require token to unlock bootloader (e.g. US/Canada A51, A71, A32, A42, A52, S9, N9, S10, N10, S20, N20, S21, Fold, Flip and Tab series.)
DID is available on download mode or by ADB (adb shell getprop ro.boot.em.did) or by Android terminal (getprop ro.boot.em.did)
Provide the DID that you’ve obtained from the device (PLEASE DOUBLE AND TRIPLE CHECK IT’S CORRECT, THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS FOR BAD SUBMISSION)
We will provide the token file once it’s available
- This is a paid service and not provided by XDA.
- Each device has it’s own DID and token.
- You cannot flash unlock token 2 times, you get a single chance, Dont lose it by flashing combination token.
- The token file will be available within 1–36 hours of order.
- We will unlock the device remotely or you do it yourself.
- To flash this token file yourself you will need a modified ODIN version.
- USA/Canada devices has no oem unlock toggle.
- Knox will be tripped after a custom binary flash.
- Samsung Pass, Samsung Pay will never work after root. Safetynet, Samsung Health and Secure folder could be fixed.
- This is a permanent bootloader unlock. You can flash full stock firmware (with the same bootloader version) multiple times and bootloader remain unlocked.
- Updating to 2021 march security update will bypass the unlock on most devices, don't update to higher bootloader version.
Please note that unlocking your bootloader does not mean that you will be able to unlock the SIM lock. Unlocking your SIM lock is at the discretion of your operator/carrier and is not part of the bootloader unlocking scope.
We strongly suggest that you do not unlock the bootloader unless you are confident that you understand the risks involved. This is a technical procedure and the side effects could possibly necessitate repairs to your device not covered under warranty. If you are still interested in unlocking the bootloader, and you understand the consequences both to your device and to your warranty, then you may refer to the following post where we have provided the unlocking instructions.
1. "Parts" doesn't have to mean hardware. Software files can cost money tooFinally, I can respond to your feedback.
I understand what you are saying. however it doesn't seem to be that there is any special hardware required. I admit I do not know their full process, but to me, it looks nothing different that an htc token identifier that allows bootloader unlock. If this is the case with this, I don't see a value in paying for it when a manufacturer had the same service offered for free.
I must have missed the part where I "quoted you" that requires an excerpt of your reply, which I have not done. And yet again, you haven't contributed any good response as to my question. as to why people are charging for this.
Finally, I can respond to your feedback.This is just like car repair. You are more than welcome to do your own, provided that you have the necessary tools, experience, and knowledge. If you don't, and therefore require the assistance of someone who does, they are not going to do it for free. And especially not when they have to purchase parts in order to do it - the cost of those parts has to be passed on to you. They're not going to take a loss on the deal, even if they're not going to charge anything for the labor itself
I can tell you now that there is no "inside source", this is all profit for these 2 developers. It's stated by the 2 developers, and for perfectly understandable, yet unethical reasons that their source is a guy in China (a country of over 1.5 billion people), who has a connection to Samsung and is selling to these 2 developers exclusively, who are then in turn "doing us a favor" by being the middle-man in a transaction with this anonymous guy.
What if they told everyone: "Hey we have figured out the bootloader unlock, but instead of following XDA tradition and sharing a guide, we are going to charge everyone else a hefty fee during these turbulent times while everyone is struggling and stuck at home.".
Everyone would go wild and they'd be hated, because they're charging a Developer's Tax, and impeding a whole load of other talented Developers from gaining the motivation to develop for a phone that most people won't unlock the bootloader for; probably due to the shortage of funds and lack of jobs from the virus.
It's a sad thing honestly, and I for one can live with a locked bootloader until I've found a way to unlock it myself. Anyone who pays for the unlock is supporting a transition to a new era of XDA that steers far away from what we all came to know and love.
Most importantly, it's a slap in the face to the world of free and opensource technology, and a disgrace to those who have worked so hard to maintain the transparency these two are taking the lead in destroying; something which money can do very, very fast. There is a chance one of them will reply to this, and all I have to say is that once again, it's just to cover their ass so that they can be loved, and still line their pockets with the cash of those they're lying to. Anyways, I doubt XDA would even allow it unless the lie was present, because this isn't a marketplace.
