What is bootloader and why unlock it?




A bootloader is a piece of software that runs before the operating system starts. It is responsible for checking and loading the kernel and other essential components of the system. By default, most Android devices have a locked bootloader, which means you can only boot the official firmware provided by the manufacturer or the carrier.


Unlocking the bootloader allows you to flash custom ROMs, kernels, mods, and other files that are not signed by the official sources. This way, you can customize your phone's appearance, performance, functionality, and features according to your preferences. You can also root your phone and access advanced settings that are normally hidden or restricted.


How to enable OEM unlocking and USB debugging on your phone




Before you can unlock your phone's bootloader, you need to enable some developer options on your device. These options are hidden by default, but you can easily access them by following these steps:


  • Open the Settings app on your device.



  • Select About phone.



  • Near the bottom of the screen, you see the Build number. Tap it seven times to enable the developer options. You may be prompted to enter your password to continue.



  • Go back and choose System in the Settings app.



  • Locate and select Developer options. Developer options are likely in the Advanced section. Tap the down arrow to open those options.



  • Find the OEM unlocking option, and toggle the switch on.



  • Scroll down and locate USB debugging. Toggle the switch on.

Once you have enabled the developer options on your phone and installed the Android tools on your computer, you are ready to unlock your phone's bootloader with the Fastboot tool. Fastboot is a command-line tool that lets you communicate with your device when it is in bootloader mode. Here are the steps to follow:


  • Connect your phone to your computer with a USB cable.



  • Reboot your phone into bootloader mode. You can do this by holding down the power and volume down buttons simultaneously until you see a screen with some text and a logo.



  • In the command window on your computer, type fastboot devices and press enter. This will show you a list of devices connected to your computer via Fastboot. You should see your phone's serial number in the list.



  • Type fastboot flashing unlock and press enter. This will initiate the unlocking process. You may see a warning message on your phone's screen, asking you to confirm your action. Use the volume buttons to select yes, and press the power button to confirm.



  • Wait for a few seconds until you see a message saying "Unlocking bootloader..." followed by "OKAY". This means your phone's bootloader is successfully unlocked.



  • Type fastboot reboot and press enter. This will reboot your phone normally. You may see a warning message saying "Your device software can't be checked for corruption. Please lock the bootloader." This is normal and can be ignored.
