I am trying to unlock a Sony Xperia X that was locked to a Canadian carrier (Freedom). The previous owner sold me the phone unlocked (SIM) but he failed to unlock the bootloader.
I followed the instructions here and realized that the rooting status states that
boot-locker unlock is set to no.
I also got the developer options enabled and made sure that the OEM unlocking is set to true and USB debugging set to true.
Next I ran adb devices and my device shows up.
However I ran fast-boot devices after starting the phone in bootloader mode (Volume Down + insert USB cable), it doesn't recognize any device.
I am wondering: is there any way I can get around Sony's restrictive Boot-loader unlock setting and get root on my phone? I desperately need to get rid of some bloatware.
