    Just updated to MM 6 and the phone is too boring, anyway im trying to unlock bootloader and no info much on my variant, its Philippine H540.
    • The device does not have unlock oem in dev options
    • Kingroot does not even try to root, says device unsupported
    • Im trying to unlock bootloader via fastboot
    1. fastboot oem device-info - returns uknown command
    2. fastboot getvar unlocked = returns no
    3. fastboot flashing unlock/oem unlock - screen message warning see screenshot, pressing up vol key does nothing and goes back to fastboot
    well i was wondering if i can try anything else

    In the image that says Unlock Bootloader? Press up, but before you do backup everything on your phone!!! It will wipe it clean to factory settings!

    Looking at your screenshots, I think you could just unlock your bootloader with just your phone.

    This is very interesting, idk if the hardware actually looks for a software flag to enable the bootloader to be unlocked

    "When fastboot unlocks it updates a lock status flag, stored on a partition of your device's internal storage."

    i dont know what internal storage is used, is it the entire hardware internal of my device, i did enabled adaptive storage on my device integrating my sd card maybe it cannot update it because of this? i have to read more in xda nexus bootunlocker app, this app unlocks bootloader without wipe

    Unfortunately idk how/where it stores that flag, but it's somewhere we can't mess with. And that app you speak of doesn't work with our phones, its strictly a nexus thing(correct me if I'm wrong)
