    Sorry, new to rooting android devices still. I need to edit a config for the hotspot on my phone, and it seems unlocking the bootloader + rooting is the only way to do this.

    Is there a tutorial for this with the latest build? Or similar, at least?

    Also, am I correct in believing the phone will restore itself to factory software settings if I unlock the bootloader?

    If you unlock the bootloader, yes, that will completely wipe the phone. Everything will be gone. As for how to root, have you checked XDA?
