Android P DP1 is breaking the ‘OEM Unlock’ toggle for some, but there’s an easy fix

Thursday, March 29th, 2018

After the Android P DP1 hit, a few people reported running into difficulty unlocking their bootloader if it wasn't already prior to flashing the developer preview. Turns out, there is a fix, and you don't have to wipe your device. Simply disabling whatever lockscreen security setting you might have is enough to fix things. 

The problem, in this case, is pretty simple. The "OEM unlocking" toggle in Developer options that governs your ability to unlock the bootloader in Fastboot might appear to work, but it actually just bugs out if you try to use it.

Bootloader unlocking appears to be disabled on some Pixel 2 phones purchased from Google

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017

Many people, like myself, look at Google's phones for one specific reason: they have an easily unlocked bootloader. That means when software support runs dry, or you get the itch to root/ROM, you can modify things without having to compound any potential security concerns with additional issues like exploits or undocumented software. If that's your motivation, too, this news could be a small concern. Some Pixel 2s purchased directly from Google seem to have locked-down bootloaders. 

If last year's Pixels are anything to go by, typically it's just the Verizon models that have locked bootloaders, lending some credence to the theory going around that Google may have inadvertently shipped some Verizon models in place of its own unlocked SKU, though hardware IDs don't seem to agree.
