Default How to unlock the Nexus 10's bootloader

No, I didn't do this one, but Andrew Martonik from Android Central did!

You can find the guide here

The problem of having no idea what I was doing haha. I figured it out using a few different sites tho. I didnt find the Android Central process very enlightening.

I used these:

How to Unlock and Re-lock Bootloader on Nexus 10 [Guide] - IBTimes UK - For overall directions

How to Set Up ADB / Fastboot with Android SDK for Any Andorid Device | Team Android - to set up drivers and fastboot

Once I found these two sites (and looked up how to navigate in the command prompt. it's been awhile since I did that lol), I had NO problem. Was super easy then! I've got "UNLOCKED!"

Great! I'll probably be doing mine this evening.

I hope Wugfresh has his toolkit compatible with it soon.

hmmm i hope i didnt screw it up....it gave me the prompt to unlock bootloader and everything. and in the bootloader it showed as unlocked.

when i restart the tablet, it shows "GOOGLE" as usual, with a little unlocked padlock at the bottom. then goes to the Nexus "X" and the X lights up with the colors moving around.....for a while....and doesnt do anything else....

I can reset it to the bootloader, but not sure what to do from there...

I was reading through one of those threads, try this:

Quote:
Try this, reboot back into the bootloader, then using the volume buttons select the Recovery option and select with Power. That will take you to a screen with a red triangle.

In there, hold Power and press Volume Up, you're now in the stock recovery. You have to hold down the power button continuously and then you hit volume plus. Then you get to the "Stock-Recovery" Then select Wipe Data/Factory and select it. Reboot and it should be ok now. - [How-To]

Not sure what it would be downloading or from where... Kind of afraid to reset it while it says that though

It always says that in that screen. Its won't be downloading anything unless you tell it to accept an OTA update or your loading one from your computer.

I'm getting ready to leave work. I'll be back on later if you still need help.

There's no menu choices after I press Power/Volume Up from the red triangle. No way to choose Wipe Data/Factory...

Ok so I figured out what to do since I couldnt get the wipe data/factory choice from the bootloader/recovery

I used the steps linked below for the N7 (minus the last couple that are for re-locking the bootloader), replacing the filenames for the N10 where needed. Worked pretty quick and I'm for sure back up and running as I'm re-setting up my N10 now! Pretty tense hour or so for me! haha

I figured it out after I got mine. When your in the bootloader screen, use the volume buttons to cycle through options and select recovery. You see it changing in the top left corner. Use the power button to select recovery. At the next screen where it says 'no command' I think, hold down the power button and push the right volume button. That will take you to the stock recovery.

I haven't rooted mine yet. I was waiting on WugFresh to update his Nexus Root Toolkit. You would need to install a recovery first and then flash SU.

Here is a thread explaining and another with a video.

I just have not seen a su.zip put out for the Nexus 10 yet. I saw that CWM has a working recovery out there as of last night. I have rooted all of my devices in the past except for my Note 10.1 and Google TVs. I love the ease of the Nexus devices...no hoops to jump through.

I haven't either, but it looks like its included in the zip file. I just downloaded it and it looks like its SuperSU-v0.98.

I guess that might be my deeper question...are the binaries installed automatically if I pull the app directly out and push with ADB?

It looks that's the way it works. I think I'll hold off for a few days. There is a new CWM and TWRP recoveries out, but it looks like both is causing random reboots.

I had seen that the "unofficial" CWM was causing there reboots but did not see the official on was. I will wait till they get the TWRP one working....starting to like that one better.

Did you get yours unlocked in the end? Nervous about trying again until there's more in stock in case anything goes wrong again...

Anyone else have this problem? I've had many Nexus devices and never run into this problem before...

I had no problem unlocking but had the boot problem. A factory reset fixed it no problem. I've seen many others have the same issue but a factory reset has fixed all the ones I have seen.

I couldn't wait any longer. Rooted and running TWRP now. TWRP works great, it just hasn't been optimized to fit on this tablet yet.

Rooted mine earlier today. I had trouble booting after I unlocked it, kept sticking on the Google screen. I could boot back into the bootloader mode, but not recovery. Flashed a fresh image and everything was smooth sailing from there. Would like to see a optimized version of TWRP for this tablet.

Goto Settings > About Tablet and tap on the "Build Number JOP40C" Seven times. After the first three times it will give you a message that you are "X" number of tabs away from becoming a Developer and then after the seventh time they will appear on the left menu.

Very glad to help out!!

This is devious, but also very necessary. It will keep the people that know nothing about the dev option from poking around and getting confued or doing damage.

Why do we need to install a recovery first before the SU? Reading about about this "recovery" stuff and I"m missing some fundamentals. It doesnt sound nearly the same as when I rooted my Motorola Bionic. Just needed to install some zip file while in some other mode (dont recall the specifics anymore).

I don't think you have to with the toolkits. They will push SU to the correct place and you can keep the stock recovery if you want it. You can also use a temp recovery without installing it permanently.

Cool thanks. I'm reading up on Wufresh. I see the button to root, and the addition checkbox for custom recovery. So I think thats what you are talking about.

what is a temp recovery?

do you have a sense about how OTA will work once unlocked? once rooted? how it works with/without custom recovery? Have see some indications but nothing super clear.

I haven't used WugFresh's toolkit much. For some reason I can't get fastboot to work with it. I used the other toolkit. Its pretty easy.

The temp CWM recovery, I really not sure how they do it. Its some kind of virtual recovery. I flashed the permanent TWRP recovery. OTA will work if you're unlocked. If you're rooted, I think it just unroots you. I did the OTA's before I rooted so I'm not 100% sure.
