  1. fastbook oem unlock does’nt work, as well as the fastbook flashing unlock command.
    sudo fastbook oem unlock, or fastbook flashing unlock command doesn’t either work.
    So what to do?

  2. I have LG V10 H960A Dubai Variant and through this method which I tried 3 months ago, it didn’t work. Then I found out at some forums that LG is officially providing BOOTLOADER UNLOCKING at its developers website. There when I put all the info, the message from LGE says, DUBAI VARIANTS are not supported. Only European variants can be unlocked. So can you help me? I need to root .. Please.. Thank you so much…
