@Ju5t3nC4s3 very kindly shared with me a cool trick to make the Developer Options OEM unlock option work despite a SIM lock. Here is my variant of the trick. Exit Development Settings, then do:

Code:
adb shell pm disable-user com.qualcomm.qti.uim

The go back to Development Settings and the switch should now work.

If you later want to do an official SIM unlock, you will need to do:

Code:
adb shell pm enable com.qualcomm.qti.uim

I'm now waiting on the unlock.bin from OnePlus.

If you flip the OEM unlock switch in Developer Settings, you can re-enable the qualcomm app and the unlock will stay (but will be grayed-out again).

Yep this one took me a way to long to figure out, I didn't know I could just use the disable command tho I'm going to play around with this since I just finally figured out how to use msm tool to get off the 9pro IN version and got the T-Mobile one to work after so long.

Secondly, then you could skip out on the unlock token by running MSM conversion 😊 👍

I got my Tmobile SIM temporarily unlocked, can I use this same process...? Can I do it on a Mac...?
