Advanced users stay away, Huawei in Canada will NOT unlock bootloader, I got two emails confirming they will not do it under any circumstances, I am returning minenp20 PRO.

hi Oscar,
Which manufacturers are actually supporting unlocking bootloader?
And what are the benefits of unlocking it to compensate for the manufacturer warranty loss?

Ever heard of xda- fevelopersyou find the answer to that question. To advanced user warranty is NOT an issue, for many years Every device I owned I had total control, it's a hobby, I choose what runs in my hardware. Search Google find out what happened to HTC a few years ago when they chose to lock bootloader.

Ok, fair enough, Google and XDA have all the answers, at least for "hobby" users.
