@afaneh92,

Since unlocking of V5 bootloader on S10 (Snapdragon, Canada) is not yet possible, I'm wondering if there is an indirect path to get what I need.

Note: I'm not interested in preserving Knox or warranty; I am intending to eventually flash Lineage OS and root the phone.

It is my understanding that some other markets also use Snapdragon but do not lock the bootloader (China/Hong Kong?). Could there be a path to first flash one of those firmwares, followed by OEM unlock then the firmware of my choosing?

I have tried this with several firmwares but Odin could not flash any of them due to the locked bootloader. I am hoping I only downloaded the wrong fw and it may still be possible.

Then buy HK device because its not possible to flash the firmware.
