since I own a Neo V which is locked, and the service menu in the phone says that the Bootloader cannot be unlocked. if I unlock my SIM lock(probably with TurboSIM, since thats the cheapest solution), would that enable me to unlock my bootloader, and start the real modifying of my phone?
i want to know if it's possible to root an Android without unlocking the bootloader. My problem is I don't want anything wiped off the phone. I'm trying to get past the lock screen, because I found this phone in the street, so I want to get the numbers in it to try and return it. I've heard you can bypass the lockscreen if it's rooted. It's a Samsung Galaxy S Mesmerize, (or Fascinate).
I successfully unlocked the bootloader on my xperia x8 via flashtool put on custom kernel nAa 14 and miniCM7 Yay.Everything is fine apart that I want to change network because they have much better deals etc.I went to the 3 network shop and tried to put in the Sim, it took it in loaded but wouldnt register with the network , in fact I tried last week when I was on stock kernel and gingerxperia and it asked for ''unlock code'', today it didn't ask for unlock code took it in but wont register.I guess there must be some sim lock or something.
Maybe it is unlocked but something to do with Radio pehaps nonetheless my current Network works fine.here's my S1 LOG if any good. after unlocking BL of course

I have a problem with my LG optimus 4XHD. I didn't like the 4.1.2 lg skinned android so i wanted to install a custom rom. I started by rooting my phone that worked but then i flashed clockworkmod recovery without unlocking the bootloader. Now i can't enter my recovery anymore but i can still boot into android. Now my question is: Can i still unlock the bootloader now without bricking my phone?
[How-To] ROOT Your Nexus One without Unlocking the Bootloader. ALL ROM'S! - Google Nexus One Owners | Google Groups. Ok, I posted this on my Google Groups page where I was able to Tidy it up and update it easier. Sources credited and applied. I did this on 2 N1's. No wiping, no data loss, both T-Mobile with FRF91. No data loss, no wipes, no nothing. The only reason you will have to wipe or anything is if you want to put a custom recovery on it and a custom ROM.
I have OPTIMUS 2x and if I plan to sell it, I want to remove my personal data from it. I know that external SD cards can be formatted with different (repeating format and data overwriting techniques) but my phone has internal 16gb which has some personal data in it. I can format it but the data will still be there? How can I completely remove my data without effecting the system data.
I have a custom rom installed and cwm as well. rooted
Need to wipe data from the bootloader on DroidX. Stuck in a bootloop with no working vol - button to clear data from recovery. Have tried every sbf out there but none of them wipe data (as they likely shouldn't). Told Verizon my battery went dead during an update and now it just keeps restarting.
i want to use titanium backup but i need root i tryed the root without unlock but dont work for me and i want backup cause i have games like fifa 2012 which are like 2gb that i wanna back up the whole 2gb file
Is there any way to turn off the short vibration that occurs when you unlock the Droid from the lock screen? I could have sworn that when i first used the phone it was not like that. I already have haptic feedback turned off for the virtual keypad.

How to restore the stock bootloader on a HTC phone?
I explain: after the root process, made with the Revolutionary tool, the bootloader isn't the same as before: now there are some lines i don't like (especially the one that allows to format the phone only by pressing two or three buttons). Is there a way to change the bootloader, and back it up, or if i lose the phone, the "volume down-power button trick" could make a new phone?
I tried everything, including a method of mine to set the s-on and using the ruu, but nothing changed.
I tried to unlock my HTC Acquire or HTC Kingdom bootloader by following HTCDEV instructions but I always get tot the part where it says "writing unlock key" or something along those lines, the phone freezes on this part and I have to wait until the battery dies or remove the battery. Why this is happening?
I've been searching for a fix to remove the data switch in notifications.. It can't be cleared and wouldn't clear neither data on and off.. I've found one for sony x10 think but the fix did not work for my device...
I'm running Froyo 2.2 (stock ROM) on Huawei Boulder U8350...
Is it me or you fellow incredible owners as well? And also notice when im about to send a text sometime it highlight the send button even tho I didn't press it. Hope they fix this issue soon its kind of annoying.
I know it sounds pretty worthless, but on the hero their are 6 hardware buttons, and if their could be an app that would unlock the phone without having to enter the passcode that would be awesome.
Eor example the combination of pressing talk twice and menu one would unlock the phone, of course you could create the combination of hardware buttons to unlock the phone. You would not have to type in the password to unlock it using the hardware button combination to unlock the phone. So if you were to just press the end key to normally unlock the phone, the phone would wake up and prompt the unlock screen, but if you pressed the combo of hardware buttons you wouldnt have to do that.
Is there any downside to unlocking an HTC Desire to go with a different provider? In my province Telus offers the Desire, but I might want to go with an alternative carrier. So in theory I buy a phone, pay the $15-$20 and have it unlocked. Then take it to the alternative provider and they sign me up
