Uh, that's carrier unlocking, not bootloader unlocking. Chances are the Verizon variants will not be able to have their bootloaders unlocked.
Verizon variants very rarely are bootloader unlockable. Regardless if you carrier unlock them or not. If you want to unlock the bootloader, you need to purchase an unlocked model from Google.
We were hoping you would tell us .
Yeah, that's smart with the Magisk waiting. Never enter a room without knowing how to exitI don't think the page with official instructions for Locking/Unlocking the Bootloader has changed. I'll update whatever the reported results are in my thread [How To Guide] Common handy links for those new to unlocking bootloaders and rooting. I highly doubt I'll flash Magisk until the official firmware zip is up, just in case.
Thanks for letting us know 'fastboot flashing unlock' works
Ahhhh, that's great news! I hope Google doesn't botch the device like Samsung does when the bootlloader is unlocked (i.e. blocking the cameras).
If it can be unlocked/rooted, then I plan to buy. If not, I'll have to reconsider. I realize nowadays there's smaller need to flash, but it's kinda a hobby of mine and I like being able to tinker with my deviceOn this topic, any idea if we'll be able to root and unlock the bootloader since it'll be the new tensor chip? I'm asking because on Samsung devices I remember being able to unlock only the Exynos and not Snapdragon, and I may be asking something silly here. Thanks!
