    might be a stupid question, but the huawei page you linked asks for a chinese phone number?

  2. Ian says:

    i made an account, but everytime i clock on the “unlock bootloader” i get a page in all chinese, im assuming an error page … any other ways to get this done?

  3. Ronte says:

    People that are getting that “We’re sorry but the server is busy…” message you can get the code from
    www. emui. com/plugin. php?id=unlock&mod=detail


    it’ll be in Chinese but the process is pretty much the same.
    Let me know if it helped :)

    I just wanted to say thank you for the links. I have been driving head on into this language barrier for far too long and this was the first place I found links to at least get me in the right section of hell. Still hit a dead link after logging in, but just hit back to home. Then, finally found the “unlock brush” link hahaha thanks to Google’s translating skills. I have unlocked bootloaders from a handful of companies now. A couple of them were a headache, but because of the hiccups with the phone and such. I now have a greater understanding of the extreme distance between the U.S. and China. I just don’t understand. Huawei is by no means a small player in the U.S. android market…Where’s the web support! I don’t even want to think about having to use support over the phone..

  8. Towerdroid says:

    Please I need help. The step where the phone reboots works well but I can’t use fastboot on that bootloader. It’s like a white screen with an Android icon and says “Phone locked”, “FRP ((or something)) unlocked”. What is this?

  9. Im frreking out all day i try …
    Please make sure the verification code and model number are correct. If your device has multiple IMEIs or MEIDs, please try another IMEI or MEID.
    Whats is problem

  10. Sathish says:

    @Dejan Andrejic , For multiple IMEI’s you have to enter only one IMEI. Check either 1 it may work

    under developer options you also have to set: “Allow OEM Unlock”

    you can chat on huawei. com and ask for bootloder code. they will supply you the code in a week by email. make sure EMI and ID codes are ready. They will ask for it.
