I want to unlock the bootloader of my Nexus 6P but I'm unable to retrieve my product ID from common way


Because my phone is stuck in boot loop.

Product ID is required by Huawei website to provide the unlocking code for bootloader.

I want to know where the product ID is stored in the android and is it possible to read it by using the fastboot commands?

Update: I have managed to raise a request for the bootloader unlocking key with Huawei support. I will update again, once I get the key.

Update2: I got the bootloader unlocking key from Huawei. However it does not seem to work or I am using the wrong command. Here are the commands that I have tried:

fastboot.exe flashing unlock VP2T97EWDWSZDX8U

fastboot.exe oem frp-unlock VP2T97EWDWSZDX8U

Both of them end up in an error with no specific description.

  • The thing is, N6P is ultimately a Nexus device and doesn't follow standard unlocking procedures of other Huawei phones. If you didn't turn on OEM unlocking in Settings before you had the bootloop, you're pretty much out of luck. – Andy Yan Sep 30 '17 at 14:34
  • @AndyYan I think you are right. Although i have managed to raise a request with Huawei to get the bootloader unlock key. Hopefully that works! – bit Oct 1 '17 at 4:59
  • There's no key needed in the first place. Provided you have the option turned on all you need is to execute fastboot flashing unlock; but without that option enabled, even with the key (other Huawei phones need it) you won't be able to break through, as fastboot will simply throw an error. – Andy Yan Oct 1 '17 at 5:31
  • @AndyYan, I hadn't turned on OEM unlocking. The key is my only hope. Why wouldn't the key unlock the bootloader? – bit Oct 1 '17 at 17:02
  • Starting Android 5.x, unlocking will require explicit user consent inside the OS (e.g. past the secure lockscreen), likely in an effort to stop thieves from unlocking BL straight-up, wiping the phone and then taking full fontrol. – Andy Yan Oct 2 '17 at 1:18
