Bootloader unlock Moto G6 XT1925-6

2018-07-14, 5:25 AM

I recently purchased a Moto G6 (xt1925-6) and before I got too far in setting it up, I attempted to unlock the bootloader, as I do with all of my devices. To my surprise, when I copy/pasted the printout from "fastboot oem get_unlock_data" the Moto site informed me that this device does not support unlocking. 

 

So the question is... What are the chances of getting Moto to allow bootloader unlocking on the Moto G6 series? Or is this variant the only one not able to? This has been one thing thats kept me with Moto devices for quite a few years now and I'm legitimately debating on returning it for something else that supports it. I just bought the device yesterday and have 14 days to return it (granted I'd have to pay a $35 restocking fee). I do really like the device. I also own the Moto G4 & Moto G4 Plus, both which allow bootloader unlocking. I also own the Moto G5S Plus which also allows the same. 

 

I guess I'm wondering why they chose not to allow it on the Moto G6 and if this isn't the right place to be asking this question, where should I, who should I contact to potentially get that ball rolling.

Unlocking moto g6 is possible. They will not answer in this forum. Go to XDA.

I appreciate the reply, and I've already checked there (xda forums is a place I frequent often). Also, there wasn't any info there that I didn't already know. 

 

However, I did post in the "Bootloader unlock problems?" thread found here. Reading the OP of that thread, this device should qualify for unlocking as it does have a CID return value of 0x0032 (which is the last on the list on the table indicating whether your device is eligible for the bootloader unlock program).

I was going through the tutorial mentioned on xda. It seemed kind of half written. 

 

This tutorial from AndroidBlogg is well-explained.
