    My Videocon z51blaze 5.0 unlock bootloader and not show OEM setting

  • James Johanna Jameson

    this thread says it works with all android devices yet… my z958 will not boot into fastboot mode in any way… adb reboot bootloader… adb reboot fastboot… both just reboot the phone normally… adb reboot recovery works and recovery has an option to reboot into bootloader mode… guess what happens when I choose that option… the phone reboots right back to the os instead… any workaround for a phone that just doesn’t give the user access to the bootloader at all?

    • Awesome Bryner

      Same with my LG Rebel. Shows ADB Devices but no fastboot devices shown. Does nothing at all.This sucks for us.
