Unlocking the device

Once fastboot is installed:

  1. Enable USB debugging on the device.
  2. Connect the device to the computer through USB.
  3. From a terminal on a computer, type the following to boot the device into fastboot mode:
    $ adb reboot bootloader
  4. From the same terminal, type the following command to unlock the bootloader (under Linux, you must be root):
    WIKI ERROR: not set!
  5. A disclaimer will display on the device that must be accepted. Use the volume keys to cycle through the options. Pressing the power button should confirm your selection.
  6. If the device doesn't automatically reboot, reboot it from the menu. It should now be unlocked.
  7. Since the device resets completely you need to re-enable USB debugging.
