Yeah there is

If you don’t want to unlock the bl DO NOT FOLLOW CALYX HIKARIS PROCEDURE AND FOLLOW THE ONE BELOW

open sp flash tool

Click browse on scatter file and browse to

MT6761_Android_Scatter (NOT ALTUNLOCK)

MAKE SURE UR DOWNLOAD MODE ISNT FORMAT ALL + DOWNLOAD OR FIRMWARE UPGRADE

SELECT DOWNLOAD ALL

and press download

While the phone is powered down hold the volume down and connect a usb cord which is plugged in to ur computer

This won’t erase ur imei but YOUR DATA WILL BE ERASED

At first when I purchased the Nokia phone it was android 9 and take less ram and internal storage but since the upgradation to android 10 then lastly android 11 it ended up taking around 9.5GB System as the internal storage and the capacity of device storage is 16 GB like when I was playing game ( Dragon Raja sea) game data around 12 GB used external storage SD Card in android 10 it worked fine but since android 11 my games and apps all are crashing to much

So I looked for solution directly to XDA forum I am glad we have Genius members to get solution for every issue

Now the last piece of puzzle of Nokia x.2 series bootloader unlock line has been completed, thanks to the help of a member called Woke_World.
After I read his procedure, I decided to optimize the entire procedure and use my own firmware file to achieve it.

Step 1: Do full backup
(For this case please use SP Flash Tool 5.1924 or newer that can be found on spflashtool.com )

The firmware for this procedure can be downloaded here: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=2188818919693749336
SHA256: D056631A8A795A06795B3A4E5F334DBF9B55C3C71269831F8E7926FA3ABA5637

Please follow the procedure in this topic to do readback: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...-global-nokia-5-1-plus-unbrick-guide.3858253/
For this case, you need to keep Download Agent file as the same came with SP Flash Tool, and altunlock-MT6761_Android_scatter.txt

Once readback done, please extract these images inside your backup for later use:
Code:
nvcfg.img
nvram.img
proinfo.img
protect1.img
protect2.img



Step 2: Format all + Download to flash the firmware with altunlock scatter file
Switch to Download tab, and choose format all + download to flash the entire phone with this scatter file: "altunlock-MT6761_Android_scatter.txt"
Once flash complete, disconnect the phone.

Step 3: Bootloader unlock
Press and hold volume down key and connect to PC - keep that condition for around 12 seconds then the phone will boot to Fastboot mode.
Execute these 2 commands to perform bootloader unlock:
Code:
fastboot flashing lock_critical
fastboot oem unlock

Look at your phone and press volume up to confirm unlock. Once done, disconnect the phone and remove the battery, wait 5 seconds and place the battery back.

Step 4: Do readback again
Once readback done, please extract these images inside your backup for later use:
Code:
sec1.img
seccfg.img

Step 5: Format all + Download to flash the firmware with original scatter file
Switch to Download tab, and choose format all + download to flash the entire phone with the original scatter file named as "MT6761_Android_scatter.txt" - note there's no altunlock at the beginning of filename.
Once flash complete, disconnect the phone.

Step 6: Power on the phone and enable USB debugging, root the phone with MTK Easy SU
[NOTE: DO NOT INSERT ANY SIM CARDS AND YOU MUST SKIP INTERNET CONNECTION]

You can download the MTK Easy SU apk from here : https://github.com/JunioJsv/mtk-easy-su/releases/latest
And Magisk APK from here : https://github.com/topjohnwu/magisk/releases/latest

When you have both MTK Easy Su and Magisk APK installed, please enable the "Run as 64 Bits" option, and tap the hash (#) button to enable root.
Once root complete, we can now re-enable bootloader unlock and restore IMEI.

Step 7: Re-enable bootloader unlock and restore IMEI
Please copy the 7 img files to your phone's internal storage:
Code:
nvcfg.img
nvram.img
proinfo.img
protect1.img
protect2.img
sec1.img
seccfg.img
We assume you copied them to root directory of internal storage (a.k.a. /storage/emulated/0/ )

Then execute these commands on your PC:
Code:
adb shell
su
dd if=/storage/emulated/0/nvcfg.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/nvcfg
dd if=/storage/emulated/0/nvram.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/nvram
dd if=/storage/emulated/0/proinfo.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/proinfo
dd if=/storage/emulated/0/protect1.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/protect1
dd if=/storage/emulated/0/protect2.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/protect2
dd if=/storage/emulated/0/sec1.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/sec1
dd if=/storage/emulated/0/seccfg.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/seccfg

When it's done, please perform factory reset to apply the NVRAM restoration.

Please watch this video for entire procedure demonstration:

That wraps up the entire procedure of bootloader unlock, and have fun for modding this device!
