So here's my problem...
I've accidentally wiped out entire phone (including OS)...
I still have access to TWRP, but the bootloader is locked, meaning I cannot flash stock rom (or any roms) to my phone...

I've tried to use following command:
fastboot oem unlock​
but it gives me this:
<bootloader> Check 'Allow OEM Unlock' in Developer Options.​
FAILED <remote failure>​

How can I check 'Allow OEM unlock' if I can't even get to the setting..?

I see others have similar issue like me but there's no solution to be found... Anyone know how to fix this problem??

Boot into TWRP. Connect to PC. Download a ROM to your PC. Drag and drop the ROM into your internal storage. Flash ROM with TWRP. Enable oem unlock via developer options. Boot to bootloader. Fastboot oem unlock.

Thanks for the comment,

I've tried it and it gave me following error:
Skipping MD5 check: no MD5 file found​
Error flashing zip 'sdcard/image-shamu-lmy47d.zip'​

Are you trying to flash a factory image through TWRP? That won't work. Download a ROM (other than M preview) from the Android development section. Any custom ROM other than M.

why not m? it booted fine for me via twrp, the twrp flashable version at least.

To get him up and running with a locked bootloader, I chose to keep it simple. M would require the bootloader and radio flash and that's not happening with a locked bootloader. ;)

doesnt require the radio flash, but does require the bootloader flash. I did forget though, you're right. I updated that via twrp as well. but you are very right about keeping it simple :)
