    Ok, here we go!!!

    Start fastboot


    1. Unpack and launch the boot mode tool.
    2. Power off your 6060C.
    3. While holding vol- plug in device to PC.
    4. While continuing to hold vol- press power until the device starts and release power (not vol-).
    5. Once you see fastboot at the bottom of the device you can release vol-.

    Unlock Bootloader


    Now that you are in fastboot mode, we need to unlock the bootloader.

    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot oem unlock

    Install Custom Recovery


    I forgot to mention I also built a working TWRP.img for this device.

    1. Unzip the recovery.zip.
    2. To install it.
    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    3. then...
    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot oem reboot-recovery
    4. Welcome to team win recovery!

    NOTE:

    Unless you remove verity (and a handful of other annonyances) you will loose twrp. Luckily, I've already built a replacement system.img to solve this. Update: I now have the system.img available here.

    I have the system image working, but it's huge. Probably why system and vendor were split in android 8. It's a 4.6 gigabyte image so as soon as I decide the best way to host it I will post it.
    UPDATE!!!
    I have the system image available from here

    In the mean time, the way to keep updated is our telegram group.

    I compiled the image, but the theme is a ui.zip I found somewhere.

    I'm working on updated recoveries other than team Win. I'm currently using orange fox and I have added more functions than the current linked one has. I'll add new links soon.
