Need to Unlock the bootloder S21 5G

Hello, I need to use a S21 5G, Snapdragon Variant as a test device, but the bootloader is locked, I need to unlock the bootloader to use it. I need to ask samsung to assist here to unlock the bootloader on this device, OEM Unlock option is NOT present in settings.

If you are a moderator, admin, I ask you for assistance, only samsung can assist from here.

Thank you.

Sorry I can’t help, If you have a locked device you will need to have the service provider unlock it for you.

I meant the bootloader, the Service provider such as O2, or whatever don’t do bootloader unlocks, I already asked. Samsung only can do this, If you have any idea about a samsung employee that works on bootloaders for the S21 5G maybe he could do this?.

The device manufacturer can only unlock the bootloader not the carrier. In this case a samsung employee, if they are willing to get this done.

Ron, since you work at samsung you are the only way to an engineer that works on bootladers, at samsung, not sure if this is in europe or korea they build this, I have two options here:

  1. Either a samsung employee, Korea or whatever they do this in S21 bootloaders, is willing to aid on unlocking the bootloader.

  2. The device is impossible to be unlocked, since the manufacturer is not willing to cooperate or even bother unlocking this(they can, they have the ability to do so), If not this would be appalling, dissapointing, but is just their ways.

But I can’t tell you to look at this site.

In Case a korean samsung employee reads this, I am not proficient in korea but Speak some basic korean:

안녕하세요, 삼성에서 일하는 경우, 나는 스냅 드래곤 프로세서와 S21 5G가, 나는 그것을 사용하기 위해 bootlader의 잠금을 해제해야합니다, OEM 잠금 해제 옵션은 설정에 존재하지 않습니다, 슬프게도, 그래서 유일한 방법은 삼성이 그것을 할 것을 요청하는 것입니다. 당신이 직원이거나이 일에 작동하는 것과 연락 할 수있는 방법이 있다면 도움을 요청합니다. 이 장치는 비용이 많이 들었으며, 협조하지 않으면 끔찍할 것이지만 그들의 방식입니다. 감사

Ron, the option you suggest is not available in this S21 version, the OEM Unlock option in settings is not present, this is locked for snapdragon, I already tried this, Thanks but the only way is to get a hold of an employee, at this point. Is up to samsung to aid.

I hope they do, They like developers but It’d be appalling if they just dont bother on getting this unlocked.

You probably will have to reach out to them on an Android community. The engineers do not view this forum (to prevent disputes over originality of ideas) and I have no way to reach out to them.

I won’t remove this topic maybe someone will see this and help.
