• Go back one screen to System, then tap Developer options
• Find the option: OEM Unlocking and turn it on


Fastboot mode
Put your Essential Phone into fastboot mode by doing either of the following:


• Connect the phone to PC and use command prompt to run the ADB (how to install ADB) command below:

adb reboot bootloader
