I want to unlock the bootloader of my Motorola smartphone without using a code from Motorola. Is it possible? And if so, how do I do it? Resolution:
Unfortunately, there is no way to unlock the bootloader of any Motorola device without having gotten a code from Motorola first. There is nothing that can be done about this, as it is Motorola’s choice to require the codes that will unlock their devices. You may find some guides on the internet that suggest you can unlock the bootloader of a Motorola by using one of their tools, but always toward the end of the guide, you would see that still requires you to enter the unlock code via fastboot.
That said, unlocking the bootloader via fastboot with the unqiue code you get from Motorola is simple. You just need to use the following steps:
Note: If you haven’t got it already, you will need to get your unlock code sent to you via the Motorola website. Once you have requested the unique code, it will arrive in your email inbox within a few days. You can sign up to My Moto Care to request the code here: There are 4 steps involved in unlocking your device.
2. Type the following command into the command line and then press Enter key on your keyboard to execute it:
fastboot oem unlock unique_motorola_key
Note: Change where it says unique_motorola_key with the actual unique code you received from Motorola in an email after you requested it is sent.
3. Reboot your Motorola smartphone by typing the following command and pressing the Enter key on the keyboard to execute it:
In conclusion, that is how to unlock the Motorola bootloader as efficiently as possible which does require the unique Motorola key still.
