I have had a further confusing development:-
I was able to retrieve a Bootloader Unlock code from the Huawei Website yesterday using the script method before it was shut down.
But unfortunately the Unlock Code I got from the Huawei Website is completely different from the Unlock Code which I retrieved from DC-Unlocker.
The code retrieved from DC Unlocker is all Digits while the code from the Huawei Website is Digits and Characters.
This causes me a little concern.. I haven't tried either Unlock Code yet so I can't tell for sure which, if any, are correct.
On the XDA Developer website I have noticed some people have reported unlocking bootloaders with codes extracted with DC Unlocker and others claim the codes didn't work for them...
In my case I won't know for sure until I try and unlock the Bootloader on my M5. At present I am taking my time to collect and verify the needed components to root the device...
I am thinking in buy this tablet, if it can be unlock and root. Do you have any updates in what you got from huawei?
