How to unlock bootloader
This will factory wipe your device. This requires disassembling the device. Source for method is here. Opening the device will, of course, void the waterproofing aspect.
- Remove the four screws on the back of the device with a Y000 Tri-Point screwdriver.
- Use a heat gun to heat the back of the device and use a suction cup to create a gap to put a guitar pick in. Alternatively, chip the plastic backing to allow a razorblade to create the gap.
- Use a guitar pack to gently pray the wireless charging coil from the back of the device. Do not remove it, allow it to hang to the side.
- Remove the clear and kapton over the SIM card, as well as the black adhesive slightly above it. This will unveil the TP points.
- Using a spare USB 2.0/3.0 cable, remove the non-type A port and strip the wires, revealing Red/White/Green/Black wires.
- Using male to male breadboard connectors, connect the now stripped wires onto the following points.
Red-TP1 Green-TP2 White-TP3 Black-TP4
