Sorry if this has been asked a *.* times. Is there a way to unlock the BL (OEM)? I see that there has not been any traction on this subject lately. The guy that used to do it seems to be gone.
Am I missing something?


Thanks,

I needed to let all the updates to complete before running the debloater. Now the OEM unlock can be enabled.

You don't need to run the full debloat script, the only command you need to run is:
Code:
adb shell pm uninstall --user 0 com.qualcomm.qti.uim
That will allow you to Enable OEM Unlock. You still need an unlock token from OP to unlock the bootloader itself though.

That was figured out by a user experimenting with the commands in the debloat script to figure out exactly which command from it un-greyed out the 'Enable OEM Unlock' option. You can check this thread to see how that happened:

I have no idea if a similar method exists for other model phones.
