Does anyone know if it is possible to unlock the bootloader of M5 (SHT-W09) using this method (
).
I was about to sell my tab until I came across this video. Since SHT-W09 runs on Kirin 960 may be there's some hope. It will be good to know if anyone has any additional insights?

Yeah it is possible. It is showed on the official page of PotatoNV (https://github.com/mashed-potatoes/PotatoNV).
I know it is CMR but it is also compatible with SHT because it is using the same SoC.
Also you can use this method: https://ministryofsolutions.com/huawei-bootloader-unlock-paid-service-html
It is paid but you don't risk to breake something inside your tablet.
I used this method and it worked perfectly well. It costs 15$ but it is worth it.

Thank you for responding, I was able to get it unlocked using the service. I am glad I didn't have to open the tablet.
