Easily Unlock Bootloader on Huawei Y6 Prime Device
A Bootloader is a code which runs when we turn on our device. This code that we are talking about initializes some hardware and then loads the kernel and ramdisk, and gets the boot process going. Most Android OEM manufacturers lock the bootloader even though it is an Open Source since you could easily mess things around.
Even so, unlосking уоur handset’s bооtlоаdеr remains thе firѕt ѕtер tо rооting аnd flаѕhing сuѕtоm ROMѕ. And, соntrаrу tо рорulаr bеliеf, it’ѕ асtuаllу fullу ѕuрроrtеd оn mаnу рhоnеѕ. Hеrе’ѕ hоw tо unlock уоur Huawei Y6 Prime bootloader too. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t say that this procedure is your next move.
If you unlock the bootloader on your smartphone, then you can forget all about fresh updates. And another major disadvantage of unlocking the bootloader of any Android device is that the warranty will be void. So, I would normally recommend you to try this only after the warranty period. You can though try this anytime you want, but face the consequences. Is it OK for you?
