  1. After typing ‘fastboot oem unlock’
    It says
    Waiting for device
    No yes or no option
    Then nothing happens
    What should i do ?
    Please help me

    • Don’t worry this problem is very small that mean your device driver are not properly installed So you should first install the device drivers properly which are the fastboot drivers and adb drivers if you didn’t find any fast boot drivers link in our post then you can google it.
      In second case maybe you are drivers are properly installed but your smartphone didn’t boot into fast boot mode so you have to do the all the steps again for more queries and for getting better explanation. You can check the video given in the post.
      I hope after this all your problem will be fixed if not then please let me know

  2. Hii my devices ADB command all worked and the whole process was successful expect fastboot OEM unlock .. why it didn’t work I don’t know please help me I flashed my phone but the bootloader was not unlocked successfully

  3. didn’t work….flashed all files but when u rebooted into bootloader…none of fastboot commands are working except fastboot devices….when tried command like fastboot oem umlock…this error showed “”FAILED (remote: ‘unknown command’) fastboot: error: Command failed””

  4. After flashing that mbn and xml file my phone is not starting. When plug in charger then only that indicator light blinking. Phone is dead…

    • Press the lock button for aprox. 30 sec your phone will be rebooted don’t worry that ok that is not any issue because that reboot option in tool sometimes not working so you have to reboot manually. Your phone is showing only indicating led because that is in edl mode.
