Sorry, after that i have to use the phone further with unlocked bootloader to keep root ?
Is the phone loose something functionality after unlocking ?
Good question. I m sure DRM would gone.
But since Chinese is really just AOSP. I m havent lost any functionality.

To be Tested:
Pair dualshock 4 game pad
HDMI input as Display

Camera seems OK. And encrypt phone And encrypt tf card works fine.

So what feature Other?

Hellp there, I also use XQ-BC72 but when I try to unlock my phone, typing “fastboot oem unlock 0x<insert your unlock code>” into CMD it will back a weird message:"FAILED (remote: 'Command not supported in default implementation')". Did U had solution? Thx a lot.
I can not get into the step of download that get stuck by the unlock step......wtf is it

Hi everyone, this is my first post here on Xda,
I seem to have committed a costly mistake since this is not available in India, in a hurry i bought the Japanese version of this phone, the S0-51B,which incidentally is a single sim variant. Is there anyway of I can flash this Chinese Rom and achieve Dual Sim?

I saw online that there is not much hardware difference between this and the Chinese version. Can anyone kindly confirm this?.
