I have an unlocked samsung galaxy s71 5g. It is a Chinese model and excludes google as a default login. Everything is part of the samsung ecosystem. I can't root it cos I can't unlock the bootloader. When I download the stock rom and extract the BL.tar.md5 file the only file vaguely reminiscent of boot.img is sboot.bin.lz4.
Help please

Bootloader is now unlockable. See the thread under the ROMs and Recovery subforum.

As mentioned above, you only n3ed the APK. Alternatively, you may flash an alternate stock ROM through ODIN. As long you flash a ROM from the SM-A716 family and match bootloader version. You will get google features built in if you would prefer.
