Unlocking the device


Unlocking the bootloader will automatically wipe all device data.

  1. Make sure your computer has working fastboot and adb.
  2. Enable USB debugging on the device.
  3. Enable OEM unlock in the Developer options settings on the device. (Note: Not all devices have this setting, so continue with next step if yours does not.)
  4. Connect the device to the computer through USB.
  5. From a terminal on a computer, type the following to boot the device into fastboot mode:
    adb reboot bootloader
  6. Once the device is in fastboot mode, verify your PC sees the device by typing fastboot devices
    • If you don't see your device serial number, and instead see "<waiting for device>", fastboot is not configured properly on your machine. See fastboot documentation for more info.
    • If you see "no permissions fastboot", try running fastboot as root.
  7. From the same terminal, type the following command to unlock the bootloader: fastboot oem unlock
  8. On some devices, a disclaimer will display on the device that must be accepted. Use the volume keys to cycle through the options. Pressing the power button should confirm your selection. If no disclaimer appears, you can run fastboot oem device-info which will tell you if the device is unlocked
  9. If the device doesn't automatically reboot, reboot it from the menu. It should now be unlocked.
  10. Since the device resets completely, you will need to re-enable USB debugging on the device to continue.
