    I am trying to unlock the bootloader on my Samsung Galaxy A10e.


    Go to "Settings" -> "About Phone" -> "Software Information" -> tap on "Build Number" 7 times

    This enables "Developer Mode". Then I go to

    "Developer Options" -> Enable "USB Debugging"

    According to the instructions on the above website there should be a "OEM Unlock" option under "Developer Options". But there is not.

    Method 2 explains:

    In case there is no "OEM Unlock" option then:

    Install ADB and Fastboot tool:

    I used

    # sudo add-apt-repository ppa:phablet-team/tools && sudo apt-get update
    # sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot

    Then per instructions:

    # adb devices
    List of devices attached
    RF8N217Q6WB device
    # fastboot devices
    # fastboot oem unlock (or sudo fastboot oem unlock)
    < waiting for any device >

    And it does nothing.

    Then I tried

    # adb reboot bootloader
    # fastboot device (or sudo fastboot device)
    < waiting for any device >

    And it does nothing.

    I also tried:

    # adb reboot bootloader
    # sudo fastboot oem unlock
    < waiting for any device >
    And it does nothing.

    can you post a screenshot of the adb output? would help to actually see what comes up.

    also what is your model number of your phone?
