I have followed all instructions to unlock my Huawei bootloader, until the last instruction in the command prompt.

Some maybe useful information:

  • My computer runs windows 10
  • My phone is a Huawei Honor 6x (title)
  • I am using a charging cable to connect my phone to my computer

What I did so far:

  1. Registered a Huawei account, and got my access code
  2. Turned on USB debugging
  3. Connected my phone and computer with a charging cable
  4. Ran adb and fastboot
  5. Opened Windows Powershell (I couldn't find command in the adb folder) and typed the following commands:
    • adb reboot bootlader
    • fastboot oem unlock 2**************1

It produces an error message that says: failed, command not allowed

Also, my phone should say "unlocked", but it still says "locked".

Any ideas on why the command is not allowed?

    After turning on developer settings did you turn on Allow OEM unlocking option?

  • Thanks so much! I tried that now, and it seems to be working fine! One last question, do you know any good softwares to be able to root my phone?

  • Search for Magisk and see if it is compatible with your phone (most likely it should be). You should also try to flash TWRP recovery first.

  • Uhh... What's the point of unlocking your bootloader in the first place? That's right, installing custom recoveries and rooting from there.

  • You can try: fastboot oem get-bootinfo to make sure that it is unlocked or not.

It is because Huawei has completely terminate the unlock code application service on July 25th, 2018.

You can refer to the following link where Huawei has officially mentioned it.
