Confused as to how to unlock bootloader..

6 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Hello all

 

Bit confused how to unlock the bootloader on my moto G..

 

I am following this guide: https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/app/standalone/bootloader/unlock-your-device-b

 

But I'm stuck on the part "

On your desktop, open a command prompt or terminal, and go to the directory where you installed the Android SDK tools (or make sure fastboot is in your $PATH)

 

I'm currently installing the following in the screenshot I've taken, but I don't know where the SDK tools are installing to? there is no folder in program files etc...

 

Many thanks in advance..

never mind I've done it, I've pasted the key into the motorola site "3A45890085034220#54413838333043585531005854313033 32000000#64ED856A41ADE4D962B9AF1039E9690B98543710# 6B94ED010F0000000000000000000000"

And clicked "can my device be unlocked?" and it doesn't do anything, then I request unlock key at the bottom of the page and it just goes to a white blank page? :/

After encountering pretty much the same problems and working through them myself, I thought I'd chip in with a bit of assistance for anyone else who's been stuck at this point.

 

First of all, when unzipping the Android SDK you download from the link, you don't go to the eclipse folder. Depending on your unzip program and location, you want to tell the command prompt to go to the folder adt-bundle-windows-x86-20130917/sdk/platform-tools. 

 

Second, at least on 64-bit Windows 7, the instructions are slightly incorrect. Instead of putting $ fastboot oem get_unlock_data into the command bar, it's actually fastboot oem get_unlock_data with no $ or space at the start of the command line. My key is different to deltalinxx's, so each phone probably has a unique one and I wouldn't recommend using someone else's.

 

Next, as the instructions admittedly say, when you click on 'Request Unlock Code' at the bottom of the page, you don't get it on the page - it's emailed to the Google or Motorola email account that you used to access the instructions page in the first place. I found that I actually had to block a pop-up on the page to get it to work - if you get a completely white page, it hasn't.

 

Once you have the code from your email, again, you skip the $ and space at the start of the given commands, so it's just fastboot devices and fastboot oem unlock UNIQUE_KEY .

You don't need the whole SDK to do this just search for minimal adb and fastboot and save them to a folder on your computer c drive.install Motorola drivers,then proceed with unlock process
