Hey people, first time in this section so I'm gonna go straight to the chase...

I've been having some troubles unlocking this phone's bootloader
http://www.gsmarena.com/asus_zenfone_go_zb452kg-8097.php

Here's the thing
I've already enabled "Enable OEM unlock" in Developer Options
I've already unlocked many devices and this is the first time i got this problem

When going in bootloader and doing
Code:
fastboot oem unlock
It's stuck in
Code:
...
waited for 5 mins... NONE, still stuck
Reboot and did nothing, bootloader still locked

So I'm gonna need some help in this freakin phone :fingers-crossed:

this thread has continued to be unaswered for several years now.
only tested 2 phones... and it seems they both have bootloader status is unknown. i can do fastboot and recovery mode on the 2 phones but on fastboot mode.. only shows blank screen... idk why it's like that. i downgraded both phones to 12.2.0 version. and bootloader status is still unknown. it can be recognized by the computer in fastboot mode using fastboot devices command but you can't do anything to it. fastboot oem device-info does not work only shows .......... , fastboot oem unlock ....., only one working is fastboot adb_enable .. kinda useless. .. i gave up on unlocking the bootloader for this phone.. im too noob for this.

I opened this thread when I was still "noob-ish". The device's bootloader can't be unlocked. Unless someone hacks into it's bootloader (like LG L Fino), it might be possible.

I found a way to unlock bootloader on this device. Just run this commands:
Code:
fastboot oem adb_enable 1
fastboot reboot-bootloader
fastboot oem unlock
Also compiled a TWRP recovery:
