If SGP771 with bootloader unlock NOT ALLOWED, is there still any chance to use LineageOS?

Or this machine must stay with stock ROM? :(

Thanks a lot!

In this forum, I found a tutorial about even bootloader locked can temp root the Z4 Tablet to backup the YA partition. Can this be used to install twrp then LineageOS at once?

Thanks a lot!

No

Do not buy any device with locked bootloaders (current Huawei e.g.) if you want root or custom ROMs or permanent debloat.

With SONY devices it could also be a good idea to check if you can backup the TA if you ever want to sell the device in "original" software condition - by that time the chance is high that SONY abandoned the device already.
