How To Fix The Missing OEM Unlock Button On The Samsung
How to fix the missing OEM Unlock button on the Samsung Galaxy S9/S8/Note 8…
On any smartphone running Android 5.0 Lollipop and higher, you may find an option called ‘OEM unlocking’ in developer options. By toggling this option, you’ll get the ability to unlock the bootloader on your device. Unlocking the bootloader lets you install a custom recovery such as TWRP, root your device to access system files, flash custom ROMs, modify the kernel, and much more. If you own the international/Exynos version of the Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, or Samsung Galaxy S9 and you’re missing the OEM unlock toggle, then there’s a fix available.
Samsung allows unlocking the bootloader on the international versions of their phones. But on the Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy S9, and Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the ‘OEM unlocking’ option only becomes available after 7 days of activating the device and adding a Samsung or Google account to the device. If you would rather not wait 7 days or if even after 7 days the button is still missing, read about how to fix the missing ‘OEM unlock’ button on the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+, Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, too. The latter is not yet tested, but we’re positive it’ll work on it too.
