I am returning a Project Fi Nexus-5X device that went into a boot loop but want to wipe all my data off it before shipping it back to Google Fi.
- the device is oem locked
- any fastboot erase (
fastboot erase userdata,
fastboot -w, etc) says I cannot do so until the device is unlocked
fastboot flashing unlockstates oem unlock is not allowed
- I can't enter recovery mode - doing so from fastboot mode immediately restarts the device, back to the black "Google" screen - and into the boot loop again
- I can temporarily enter Download Mode, but the device restarts after about 10 seconds
So I'm not sure of any way to wipe my data at this point.
