I just reached 180days, and got the network unlock.

Is it possible to get temporary root access without wiping all the data from the phone in the process? I wasn't sure if the bootloader unlock automatically wipes the device?

I have the issue where system logs are accumulating, consuming all the phones storage. I can't access the folders to delete the logs without root.

Unlocking your bootloader WILL wipe your device, there's no avoiding that.

There are ways to fully backup (pre bootloader unlock), then restore (post bootloader unlock) the data/apps/etc. from your phone; but I'm not familiar enough with any of them to give you directions...

Unrooted ADB Backup

I'm going to attempt this now that I have my unlock code.

Using this line: adb backup -apk -shared -obb -all -nosystem -f backup12302021.ab
