Yesterday I tried to unlock my friends' phone, but it failed.
Rebooting n reseting phone, but still locked.
ROM is Oreo .034

Note: I've unlocked 7 max pro m1 & also 2 max pro M2 before with no problems.

I wonder why it can't unlock now?

Question:

I followed OP guide and installed TWRP and Lineage successfully, but now I have the message "the bootloader is unlocked and software integrity cannot be guaranteed" at every boot.

If I use the official Asus Unlocking tool instead of TWRP, does the message appear anyway? I don't need rooting, I only want LOS on my phone.

the message will appear in any case. Using the official unlock tool also stops the device from receiving ota updates even after rolling back to the stock firmware.

Thanks. So the only way to remove the message is by relocking? I've found this guide but it says it will format everything and I don't want to lose LOS...

    DATA WILL BE WIPED SO MAKE A BACKUP
    (instructions are there in rar too)

    Unlocking
    1. Download this rar and you'll get 2 folders namely unlock and ASUS_Android_USB_drivers_for_Windows
    2. Install the drivers according to your OS and go the unlock folder
    3. Reboot your phone to fastboot mode by pressing volume up + power on at the same time.
    4. Connect it to pc and open unlock.bat in unlock folder
    5. Done

    TWRP
    1. Download TWRP or RWRP
    2. Follow instructions from there.

    Rooting
    1. Download magisk from op
    2. And flash as a regular zip in TWRP.
    3. Done.

    Disable Forced Encryption
    Go here and follow instruction.
    If you get stuck on ASUS Logo or bootloop, it should fix that.

    Optional:
    Enable Camera2 API

    Relock (NOT TESTED NOT SUGGESTED)
    1. Boot to fastboot and enter following commands one by one
    Code:
    fastboot flashing lock
    fastboot flashing lock_critical
    or try relocking script
    1. Extract the relock.rar and copy/move relock.bat/relock.sh to unlock folder
    2. Open relock.bat/relock.sh
    3. Wish for the best

    MY PROCESS WORK 100% FOR RELOCK BOOTLOADER TESTED !!

    CURRENT FIRMWARE : OPM1.WW_Phone-14.2016.1804.305-20180521

    AFTER UNLOCK BOOTLOADER DO THE FOLLOWING :

    ASUS DRIVERS : FROM HERE https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=818222786056030820
    FIRMWARE : DOWNLOAD CSC FACTORY IMAGE FROM HERE https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=962339331458995708. ZB610KL INDIAN VERSION.
    EXTRACT THE ZIP FILE
    AND EXTRACT RECOVERY.IMG FILE -(52MB) APPROX. ( FOR RECEIVING OTA)
    FLASH IT WITH COMMAND : fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

    1) Download Zenfone_Max_M1_Pro_Relock.zip and extract it to a folder on your desktop.
    2) Power off your phone. Then press Power and Volume + key together, to boot into fastboot mode.
    3) Connect your Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 to the PC using a USB cable.
    4) Windows will now automatically detect the device and start installing the fastboot drivers for it. If not, download and install these ASUS drivers.
    5) Open the directory where you extracted the file from #1.
    6) In that directory, open a file named relock_bl.cmd
    7) A Command (CMD) prompt will do the rest of the work for you.
    Let the phone restart.
    8) It will then erase all the data on your phone (excluding Micro SD card).
    9) Now the phone won’t show the “bootloader unlocked” warning that was displayed before you relocked the bootloader.

    You have successfully relocked the bootloader.

    REMEMBER : LOCKED BOOTLOADER SHOWS = CSC FASTBOOT MODE ( TO VERIFY IF LOCKED OR NOT)

    UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER SHOWS = FASTBOOT MODE AND WARNING WHILE BOOTING THE PHONE

    Guys how can I unlock bootloader using Linux
    1) unzip the file
    2) look out for 'unlock.sh' or something similar which is in .sh format.
    3) make the 'unlock.sh' file executable - set permission.
    4) boot your android device to Fastboot mode. open terminal in your linux system and do the below using sudo . please remember sudo is very important else it wont work.
    Code:
     ./unlock.sh
    so the code should look like

    Code:
     sudo ./unlock.sh
    hope that helps .
    ps ; i used ./unlock.sh because thats what it is written in the unlock file that have . SS attached.
