Good news hackers! ZTE has officially made it possible for users to unlock the bootloader for the Axon 7 and Axon Pro!

The Z-Community has been vocal about this, and after “the mod team performed the necessary due diligence to present your case with internal stakeholders” ZTE finally pulled through.


First, a couple of warnings. ZTE makes it quite clear that

“this procedure is reserved for those with a high level of technical expertise and have had experience flashing custom ROMs. Furthermore, unlocking the bootloader will void the device warranty that comes free with each Axon purchase.”

As usual with customizing and hacking your gear, you’re doing it at your own risk, and you can’t hold ZTE responsible if you brick your phone.

ZTE has created a new sub-forum for developers that will eventually appear here. When you buy either an Axon 7 or Axon Pro (U.S. versions only) you’ll need to visit this forum and request an unlock code from ZTE. In this forum you can also share tips and tricks with fellow unlockers. For more information, check out this community thread.
