How to Remove Bootloader Unlock Warning on Samsung Phones

Unlocking the bootloader on Samsung phones allows for more customization but can show a warning message each time the device starts up. The warning message is like this: “The phone is not running Samsung’s official software. You may have problems with features or security. and you won’t be able to install software updates.” This guide explains how to remove that message.

Phone makers, called Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), limit what you can do with your device. To make changes, like unlocking the bootloader or rooting the phone, you must follow several steps.

Unlocking the bootloader is tough because OEMs warn you right away. Samsung adds extra challenges, like tripping Knox, but there are people who still unlock the bootloader of their devices to gain full root access of their devices.
