Hello everyone,
well i bought a CAT S62Pro phone. I am trying to root it ... i am really frustrated now :)
what have i done ?
- i have latest OTA update - Android 11:

https://android.googleapis.com/packages/ota-api/package/38947871c996a7ed4c023b912f5de87bd416ad89.zip

- i installed it;
- unpacked payload.bin, Installed magisk and patched the boot.img...

Now i am stuck:

- OEM unlock is not present in dev. options menu (have not seen it in A10 either)

- fastoot oem unlock commands are not working. I am getting messeges like:

C:\Users\SzczeGr\Desktop\platform-tools>fastboot oem unlock
FAILED (remote: 'Command not supported in default implementation')
fastboot: error: Command failed


- some system properties
[sys.oem_unlock_allowed]: [0]
[ro.oem_unlock_supported]: [1]


I can not flash stuff in EDL mode - i dont have proper FIrehose/sahara programmer.

I have some questions:
- does anybody have firehose/sahara and those .xml files to flash stuff in EDL mode ?
- does anybody know how to repack payload.bin and create OTA update package ? It may be the fastest way to root it. Step by step guide would be OK.

- how to edit/create firehose programmer ? is it possible ?

- does anybody have an idea how to unlock bootloader ???? Stack overflow, firehose or hack or something ?

Any help would be cool.

Thank you in advance....

If you have the "Allow OEM unlock" toggle in developer options, switch it on, then
Bootloader unlock is achieved with
fastboot flashing unlock
fastboot flashing unlock_critical
Follow instructions on the phone to unlock bootloader.... After reboot, and until you run the bootloader lock command, you will get a warning that the bootloader is unlocked and data on the device can't be verified at power on, before boot logo...
This is where I'm stuck... I have the latest firmware on S62(not Pro) and I can't find a means to get boot.img to patch and flash. There isn't a loader for edl, fastboot is only for writing to, not read back of partitions, and I can't find the OTA update .zip with a payload.bin to extract the boot.img from... If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated
