Okay, so it looks as if Fastboot is disabled on my device. I went into the Stock Rom, and I found there is a switch on the Stock Rom that turns Fastboot on and off. It says: Allow Oem Unlock.

I've heard of some folks bricking their Phones this way by flipping this switch in the stock rom. Is that true?

My choices seem to be:

1. Use SP Flash Tool to Flash TWRP. Then TWRP to load AOSP Extanded, or Lineage.
2. attempt to use that switch to see if it will let me do a fastboot oem unlock.

I'd like to try the second, but I want to know if thats a land mine to a bricked Phone if I flip the switch to allow OEM Unlock of the bootloader.

$ fastboot-android oem get_identifier_token
...
FAILED (remote: unknown command)
All attempts to use fastboot to unlock the device have met with this error.

It will fastboot reboot, but nothing else. I have a feeling something like the fastboot DirtyCow Exploit will be needed.
