I possibly have an easy way to unlock
without factory resetting.
Thanks to @Ingo for checking thatBefore explaining how it works, I would like to ask someone who has never been unlocked to get me a dump of the devinfo partition.
To do that, you’ll need:
And the attached prog_emmc_firehose_8953_ddr.gpx (434.9 KB)
- Power off your phone
./edl.py r devinfo devinfo.bin --loader=prog_emmc_firehose_8953_ddr.gpx && ./edl.py reset
- Then plug the phone in, while holding both volume-buttons.
This should create a file
devinfo.bin, which I would ask you to send me.
The following will unlock your device without requiring oem unlock and without forcing a factory-reset.
However since unlocking causes the decryption-keys to change wiping data is still necessary (as it can’t be decrypted anymore)
Download devinfo-unlocked.gpx (1 MB)
Reboot into fastboot
