I just had some luck unlocking the bootloader on my Nokia 8.1. But it looks like I've accomplished nothing still. Previously when I attempted to flash a partition via fastboot or boot a boot image, I used to see:
flashing is not allowed in locked state
Now that I've successfully unlocked the bootloader (I can confirm via deviceinfo command and also via the 5 second warning before boot), I am encountering another roadblock:
flashing is not rooted for fused device
It appears to be some sort of additional check. The device does show on screen (fastboot mode) that
fuse = enable. Looks like this is some additional check for devices which have been unlocked to prevent unauthorised use. I do not have any idea how to disable it. It probably comes from the Kernel level or probably somewhere else. Can somebody guide me to a direction which I should take next?
There should be some way to disable fuse.
