Hello, I would like to unlock bootloader on my nokia 6 (2017) TA-1033 Android Pie 9.0
First of all, I tested the official unlock but, the application tells me that my device is not supported...
I'm looking on the forum but I can't find a method for unlock bootlaoder and install twrp (then magisk for the root if supported)

Thank you very much for your help ! :D

After some research, apparently, there is no longer any free way to unlock the bootloader....
So I went to the cash register hoping it would be reliable XD.

Wanna share the key and instructions?

Hello, for the key, I had to buy it on techmesto (thanks to him for the tutorial)

regarding instructions :


Grab the June 2018 OTA file from here => https://android.googleapis.com/pack.../2a84fb0cddebb6ed79e18735740c7386ebd4be1f.zip

Download the full firmware for Nokia 6 => https://drive.google.com/open?id=1twEoVIImRHeFdJ6OQSG4tfkEvtrY_0uJ

Download and install the NOST Tool => https://forum.xda-developers.com/no...t-improved-version-ost-la-6-0-4-v0-4-t3875574

Download and install OST Tool => https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-iwfKu7PHygVV5Ok4_lSibCW4ATeFpBu
(about me, it solved the problem of unrecognized devices)

On your device, go into Settings -> About and find the Build Number and tap on it 7 times to enable developer settings. Press back and go into Developer Options and enable USB debugging.

Connect the phone to the usb port

Copy June 2018 OTA file to SD Card

You will need the platform-tools from the Android SDK on your computer ==> https://developer.android.com/studio/releases/platform-tools
Or use Minimal ADB ==> https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2317790

On the computer, navigate to ADB’s folder and open a Command Prompt and type:

Code:
adb devices
check if the device is detected correctly

Code:
adb reboot recovery
If you see a “No Command” screen ==> Press and hold Power key and quickly press and release the Volume Up key

Select apply update from SD card and select the update file (June 2018 OTA)

When the update gives an error, reboot to bootloader by selecting the option from recovery mode

Code:
fastboot devices
check if the device is detected correctly

Now use the unlock key to unlock. Do normal unlock and also critical unlock.

Code:
fastboot flash unlock UnlockFile.bin
(UnlockFile.bin = name of the dedication key you purchased and it's easier to place it in the same folder as platform-tools)

Code:
fastboot oem unlock-go
fastboot flash unlock UnlockFile.bin
fastboot flashing unlock_critical
fastboot reboot

If it doesn't reboot, open NOST and flash the full firmware (nb0)
Warning: the battery must be sufficiently charged for NOST

I'm not saying anything about techmesto, but I do not know them. Man, do you know the damage someone can do with an IMEI and S/N? Damn Nokia. :mad:

Thanks for the super indepth guide! I've been waiting for years now for HMD to release the bootloader unlock tool for the OG phones, but that's clearly never gonna happen. Techmesto charges 8 dollars for the key and the downgrade + unlock, but 5 dollars for just the key. So I think I'll follow your guide to downgrade and then purchase the key from them afterwards.
