Unlocking your device bootloader allows you to do a whole lot of things on your device, like flashing custom roms, kernels, rooting, baseband, etc.
Officially, no provision is made to unlock the bootloader of certain devices, unlike Nexus, Sony, Motorola, HTC, and a few others.
Xolo happens to be one of the devices without any official bootloader unlocking means. So, if you use a Xolo smartphone and wish to unlock your phone’s bootloader, read and follow this brief guide carefully.
This guide has been successfully used to unlock Xolo Black and some other Xolo devices. Though some people complain it fails to unlock their Xolo device bootloader. Give it a try, it might actually work for you. 😉
*Please note that this bootloader unlocking guide also works on some other devices not made by Xolo.
How To Unlock Bootloader
