    I'm just wondering, has anyone looked into unlocking the BL and getting a recovery up and running on this device yet?

    Well once one of us provides what they are asking for including carrier then yes but until then no, and they only released this method because people are demanding, but they are currently working on one that won't break your phone (if you don't read directions to the letter)

    Does the 5.1 version of the boost stylo have Oem unlock in developer options?
    If not then their bootloader will remain locked and without a way to gain fastboot access we cant unlock it manually.

    yes it does have OEM unlock but i and unjustified tried the readily available TWRP for T-Mobile/Metro but to no avail....so the option is there but we may have to wait for the official tool to support us unless a genius figures out how to
