1 thought on “How To Unlock Bootloader On BLU Bold N1 – ADB & Fastboot”

  1. Thanks for the write-up. Some corrections:

    Step 4 is entirely unnecessary if you perform the “adb reboot bootloader” command in Step 6. I.e., you don’t need to boot into bootloader using volume + power keys if you initiate a soft command in Step 6.

    Alternatively, Step 4 should say: Press & Hold Volume Up + Power Button Together Till You See Recovery/Fastboot/Boot normally menu. Select Fastboot using the volume keys. Then skip the first two adb sub-steps in Step 6.

    In Step 6, the command “fastboot oem unlock” returns a “FAILED (remote: ‘unknown command’)” error.

    Instead, use:
    fastboot flash unlock

    Otherwise, I was able to flash Android 10.0 v208 onto the Bold N1 using your instructions. It works nearly perfectly. You lose the stock Bold Camera app, of course, and the fingerprint reader might not work (use the stock Android camera or Open Camera instead, which I prefer, and use Smart Devices/Trusted Places/Pattern Unlock for more convenient unlocking). Netflix and Turo (car-sharing app) also currently won’t install with this version of Android, presumably because this version is too new for them.

    Whatever version of Android 10 you install, you should download the ARM64/ab (system-quack-arm64-ab-gapps.img.xz) file from the assets, unzip it, then flash the resultant .img file.
