While Huawei smartphones have not always been the best choice when it comes to custom ROMs, one thing that has always been accessible was the ability to unlock the bootloader. An unlocked boot loader is the first step in the magic world of rooting, but after May 24, Huawei will no longer offer this service.
Huawei devices are one of the simplest devices when it comes to unlocking bootloaders. By visiting the official website, creating an account, and entering your phone information, Huawei will provide an unlock code for your device. The OEM unlock code allowed you to unlock your bootloader with ADB commands. However, on May 24, an announcement was published by Huawei (which we know thanks to a tweet from Paul O'Brien ), stated that this service is not available for all devices released after this date Would be available. For older devices, you will no longer be able to use the Web site for the OEM unlock code after July 23, 2018.
We contacted Huawei and got an official response on this topic :
"In order to provide the best user experience and prevent users from experiencing ROM flashing issues, including system failure, sputtering, degraded battery performance, and the risk of compromising data, Huawei will not release unlock codes after May 25, 2018 Bootloader code service will be terminated for devices that were started before the above date The agreement will come into effect 60 days after today's announcement, and Huawei continues to strive to provide its customers with high quality services Thank you for your continued support. " – Huawei
The decision to Bo Stop delivering otloader unlock codes is a 180-degree flip from the beginning of this year. With their push into the US market, Huawei decided to send early copies of the Honor View 10 to specialized ROM developers to create ROMs for their upcoming devices. Combined with Project Treble, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro and Honor View 10 were far more responsive to the needs and desires of the aftermarket community and became one of the best phones for those who wanted to try new ROMs. But with these messages, that will not be the case anymore.
What do you think of Huawei's decision to remove the unlock codes? Are you trying to unlock your device before July 23? Let us know in the following comment.
