  1. Wrong not true doesn’t unlock the bootloader command don’t work

  2. Nokia does not allow the bootloaders to be unlocked. When I try this procdeure on my Nokia 6 & 8 Sirocco, it comes up with an error saying device cannot be unlocked. I wrote to Nokia and asked them about this situation and they told me that the do not endorse rooting or unlocking the boot loader.
    This procedure fails on both of my new Nokia devices, the 6 and 8 Sirocco, which should actually be spelled Scirocco. It’s a hot desert wind from Morocco.
