Unlock the bootloader

2021-05-08, 14:40 PM

Hi,

in my brand new MotoG100 the item "OEM Unlock" in Developer settings is grayed out.

So I am not able to unlock via fastboot.

 

My question is why the "OEM Unlock" is grayed out and what can I do to enable it?

Is this only im my case disabled or for any one of you?

 

Thanks in advance

Randy_0012

Hi Randy_0012

 

Thanks for asking. You need to have an active mobile data or internet for at least one week for the OEM unlock option become available in the developer settings. 

 

Best regards,

Hi Rich

 

Thanks for your quick reply.

 

Is there a known or specific reason why the OEM unlock option can only be selected after at least a week as described?

What's the point behind this waiting period?

 

Thanks in advance

Hello, the point is to deter possible fraud or stolen devices. I don't really have further information other than that. I hope you understand.

 

Thanks,

Tom
