How to unlock oem boot lock!!!

Asked: Jan 24 2021 | 9:50 pm EST 309 Views 4 Answers

I'm starting to think that this tablet is either deffective or broken or maybe I'm just an *****.

I have been fighting with this tablet for over 20 hours. I've installed Odin on my PC along with king root. Magic, superSU etc on the tablet... Along with 15 different YouTube videos I cannot figure this out... This OEM is locked solid.

I have undone all of the Samsung security and put everything as low as possible.... The toggle within developer options does absolutely nothing. As soon as I restart back in download mode the OEM lock prevents me from doing anything. I have clicked the USB toggles for debugging and for file transfer I have tried every possible configuration of the the buttons on/off.

I am pulling my hair out with frustration I am literally right at the end If I can't get a response here this thing is going in the garbage.

No need for flying lessons - this should be all you need to unlock the bootloader.
