Using your own custom recovery (CWM or TWRP):

  • 1: Make a nandroid backup
    2: Do a factory reset (Wipe Data/Cache, some have not had luck after wiping system)
    3: Install from forum post.
    4: Install from forum post or Ubuntu mirror (link below).

    • -This step will take a long time, don't worry unless you see errors.

    5: Reboot system.

Unlocking instructions

NOTE: This will delete all data on the phone (most of the time, you may luck out, but don't count on it). This includes your "SDCard" space (or, more properly, your /data/media/ space). As such, you should make proper backups.

NOTE: This may void your warranty. You will see a more specific warning as you unlock, but you are choosing to do this on your own, and you are responsible for any damage done to your device as a result.


Reboot phone into bootloader mode:

  • 1: Turn off phone.
    2: Hold down both volume buttons and press the power button until the phone vibrates.
    3: You will see an Android, and a large box with an arrow pointing to the right (towards your power button) which says START. You are now in bootloader mode. If you use the volume up/down buttons, you can choose to boot into recovery, among other options. For now, you will stay in bootloader mode.

Unlock using Fastboot (included in the Android SDK tools)

  • 4: With the phone in bootloader mode, plug phone into computer using a microUSB cable.
    5: In a terminal or command prompt on the computer, navigate to the directory which you stored the Android SDK, and into the platform-tools directory (If you have the SDK binaries in your path, you don't need to worry about this).
    6: For Linux & Mac:

    • ./fastboot oem unlock
      or, if the Tools are in your path,
      fastboot oem unlock
      For Windows:
      fastboot.exe oem unlock

    7: At this point, your phone will show a dialog, asking you to confirm that you want to unlock the device, it will show a warning. Make your own decision.
    8: If you decide to proceed, you can use the volume buttons to highlight "yes" and then press the power button to select it.

Your device is unlocked. If you download a .img of ClockworkMod Recovery or TeamWin Recovery Project, you can flash it with fastboot:fastboot flash recovery <recovery.img>
