How to get OEM Unlock option?

    The guides to root J7 all say you need to use OEM Unlock in the Developer Settings, but there is no option for that on mine (J730GM with 8.1.0).

    I've read a few guides to enable OEM Unlock, and they either didn't work, or say I need Miracle Box.

    The copies of Miracle Box that I've found so far are loaded with a LOT of malware (actual Windows trojans, not just custom USB drivers or Android OS PUA).

    Can anyone point me to the URL of either a working method that doesn't use Miracle Box, or a clean copy of Miracle Box?

    Were those methods you saw referring to Samsung phones? Sammy have for years been amongst the manufacturers most hostile to unlocking, so I'd be a little surprised if many of their phones have this option. If you bought it through a service provider then even less likely.

    Afraid I don't know that tool, so can only hope someone who knows this phone can help.
