Obtaining the OEM unlock key

The Android version running on the device does not support unlocking OEM. A special key has to be retrieved from a form on the manufacturers website.

All necessary data can be found in the phones system information. Only the IMEI number seems to be wrong. Dump the displayed number into the search help on this site and take the correct returend one instead.

Finally unlock the connected device via:
