Hi. I have completed all the prerequiste steps ok but I just get “waiting for device” when I type “fastboot oem unlock”.Any clues?
u have to hold the volume up volume down again and power button the the command will be sent to ur phone
does that really work?
my phone has been doing the same thing.
Were you able to find a solution?
There is a type in Step 6. Should say “adb reboot bootloader”.
