Yes. It is impossible to root (unlock bootloader) currently. This phone may never be rooted. Brought one for my spouse, she does not need root. When I found out that it cannot be rooted, I passed on buying one for myself. Nice phone.

Yeah but its about the challenge of discovering the formula. You guys always find away when we get a good thread going, and put are ideas together.

Plus got rid for of my verizon firmware and flashed the usa unlocked
sm-A515U1UEU1ATC8_A515U1OYM1ATC8_XAA_10.0 download zip https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=4349826312261804108 follow this tutorial https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-a51/how-to/a515u-a515u1-firmware-links-flashing-t4092311..
at least i could get rid of all the verizon bloatware and most of samsung bloatware too but phone really not compatible with other network providers, it prompts me for verizon network unlock code if i put a diferent sim card att and sprint.

You need a sim unlock to use a different carrier. Check with Verizon. People that purchase this phone should not expect it will be bootloader unlocked.

Well that sucks, but your wrong I did network unlock without any codes, I just changed the apn settins, i didn't pay nothing to no one. And it is possible to unlock bootloader if u got 65 dollars, any Samsung usa variant from s9 and up https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...unlock-for-samsung-us-canada-devices.4215101/ or here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/sampwnd-usa-model-bl-unlock-info-u-u1-w.4201689/ , but I can't afford it so im going to have to figure it out on my own like usual, plus I only payed 15 dollars for this phone and the screen is already cracked, I know how to replace it but Samsung screens are such a pain and expensive, im waiting to find something worth wild on offer up so I can finish trashing this one.

Has anyone with a USA version of the A51 gotten one of these two places to unlock the bootloader on their phone ?
