If you just want to install XAP files this is the wrong tutorial. You dont need to unlock bootloader to have root access.
The easiest way to gain root access is this:
Go to Settings then Update & Security then For Developers and choose Developer Mode.
Next step (copied from http://forum.xda-developers.com/win...windows-mobile-10-redstone-rs1-build-t3319375):

Interop-Unlock your Device
=================================
1) Download WP sdk tools 8.0 lite :source zippyshare http://www14.zippyshare.com/v/18768687/file.html and click on "install.bat " click "Yes" for every prompt
Goto ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Phone\v8.0\Tools\XAP Deployment") and open "Xap Deployment.exe"

2 ) Deploy @vcfan Lumia registry editor vcReg_1.5 http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=3583236&d=1450643148

[ Go to vcreg-->(. . .)-->templates-->check mark , live interop and restore Ndtksvc and click on apply

Man, you need to understand that Root Tool does not work for the purpose of Interop Unlocking your phone. You simply just need install windows phone power tools and deploy via wppt vcREG 1.5. After that, you can do all the steps to interop unlock your phone, right?

This question is off topic in this thread, go ask in http://forum.xda-developers.com/win.../jailbreak-interop-unlock-windows-10-t3178140
You will get better answers there. Good luck!

The 720 isn't listed...is that because it hasn't been tested (since it wasn't marketed in the U.S. and didn't sell that many units), or because it definitely won't work on the the 720?

!-- Mini guide --!
If you have restored you WP8.1 device from WDRT, you will not get the th2 release.
But you could get the rs1 release by doing these steps:
0) Install all updates (firmware too) that will give you after restoring from WDRT
1) Unlock bootloader (and flash an engineering SBL3, the guide is in the first topic)
2) Enable Root Access (On WPInternals) --> you will get interop access
3) Deploy CustomPfD to your device
4) Use Lumia 1520 or 950 as "Phone spoofing"
5) Restart your device
6) Install Windows Insider, (don't let the store to download/install system/apps, is useless and wasting time) and then choose the fast ring.
7) Your phone will be rebooted.
8) Now your phone should find the 14393.x build

I'm very sorry but I can't make a full guide for this moment because i'm on vacation. I hope this can be helpful for someone!
See you soon! :p

Lumia 822 Red, OS version: 8.10.14219.341

ffu file was downloaded from site lumiafirmware com
I did as was written in first post.
Then try to unlock bootloader receive error:
"Error: Unexpected error during scanning for loaders"
How to fix this error?
Try on two different Windows 10 Enterprise x64 and one Windows 7 Enterprise x86

I have found only an outdatet version of the ffu online. How big of a Problem is this? I have a lumia 925 RM-892 059T3C4

This is all I can find online: Last Firmware: 3051.50009.1424.0001

But Windows Device Recovery Tool says I have Last Firmware: 3051.50009.1451.1001 installed

    Hello,
    this is a guide to unlock bootloader!

    Prerequisites:
    WPInternals: http://www.wpinternals.net/index.php/downloads (Download the latest one, 1.2)
    WDRT: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=525569 (Needed for drivers)
    HEX loaders: Link
    FFU Image of your phone (You can download it from WDRT or from the site www.lumiafirmware.com)

    SBL3 Engineering: Link
    (SBL3 is supported only on: L520-620-625-810-820-822-920-925-1020)

    Optional:
    OSFMount: http://www.osforensics.com/tools/mount-disk-images.html

    Procedure:

    1) Download and install Windows Device Recovery Tool (WDRT)
    2) Download Windows Phone Internals (WPInternals) and extract that in a folder (for example C:\WPInternals)
    3) Create a folder named "Loader" into C:\WPInternals
    4) Download HEX loaders and extract it in the folder previously created.
    5) Download SBL3 engineering archive (Only if you device is in supported list)
    6) Create a folder named "SBL3" into C:\WPInternals and extract the SBL3 Engineering archive.
    7) Download FFU image of your phone from WDRT or from lumiafirmware.com

    You should get this:

    Optional:

    Now, connect your Windows device and start WPInternals:
    AQRWgmW.png


    Go to "Unlock bootloader" (on the left) and press ok, your phone will be rebooted into flash mode:

    After entering flash mode you should do:
    The first one you need to select an FFU image
    (If you downloaded it from WDRT, go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Packages\Products\RM-xxx\ and select the ffu image file. WARNING: ProgramData is an hidden folder!)
    The second one, select the folder "C:\WPInternals\Loader"
    The third one, if you device is supported, select your SBL3 Engineering image (In my case, Lumia 920) from the folder "C:\WPInternals\SBL3".
    BEWARE that you can brick you phone if you flash the wrong image.

    You should get this:
    V6bIegC.png


    Now press continue and wait.

    DONE! You have successfully unlocked your phone!

    If you flashed the SBL3 image, you can access to Mass Storage Mode.

    is it necessary for what?

    Editing BCD, creating custom roms, and so on (and someone expert can create custom rom based on android for example!)
    1
    Is there a way to do this on other version of WM 10 than the ones supported by WP Internals?

    Should work on all versions of W10M

    I have a question about the tutorial unlock bootloader in lumia 520
    have lumia 520 build 10586.242 windows 10 mobile and my question is work tutorial in the version build ?
    Yes, it should work with that version.
    Beware! I just tried unlocking the bootloader of 10586.242 on a Lumia 925 (RM-892) and got stuck at "Sending Loader". Next I'll go the recommended way:
    • Flash a Windows Phone 8.1 FFU
    • Run Windows Update until you have at least version 8.10.14219.341 of the OS
    • Unlock the bootloader using an Engineering SBL3 (only possible on compatible phones)
    • Run the Windows Insider tool and update to Windows 10 Mobile, possibly needs to run Windows Update a couple of times for the latest build
    • Enable Root Access directly on the phone
    • Bonus: Create a Cusom ROM

    // update:
    After several failed attempts (*aaaahahhhrhhrrgggg!!!!111111eleven*) I finaly got it:
    Drivers from the Nokia Care Suite and the correct(tm) loader ftw. :)
