    i unlocked my nokia 8 , thanks to techmesto , very fast work and " easy to learn tutorial " now i'm finding a way to root my nokia 8 =))
    - Nguyễn hữu tài

    Techmesto provided excellent support throught the unlock and post-unlock procedures. For the mere 5 dollars I was able to save a dead Nokia 7 which would otherwise have been returned. The activation code was provided in less than 24 hours together with technical considerations for the ulock procedure. Would recommend the service to anyone!

    • Hi Im trying to help my friend who has a Nokia ta-1053, it’s boot looping , stuck on Android logo and only boots into fast boot, no recovery. As far as I know that means I can’t get the IMEI and SN so he cannot apply for the unlock code, is that correct? Any suggestions besides EDL mode. I have experience with it but my friend doesn’t want to take apart the phone if possible.

      • Hi, yes, it is available via our store. But you will likely be better off taking the remote service.

    • Hey, I have a Nokia 6 and it’s the first high end(ish) phone that I owned. Now, I want to unlock the bootloader to be able to install TWRP and root it with Magisk but I don’t have PayPal… so I was wondering if I can pay you in Bitcoin.

    • Hey,
      I would like to unlock the bootloader of my Nokia 7 plus. Can I only get the code from the 15 min generator or can I also buy it?
      My Nokia is currently on Android 10 and OEM is greyed out for me, will this still work or do I need to consider something else? Thanks for the help!

    • The paypal option seems to be non-functional for me at least (based in the US). Any other way I can get a payment through to get an unlock key?

      Thank you in advance.

      • No, bootloader unlock is not possible on new hmd devices. There is no way to unlock the Nokia 5.3, 5.4 or any new device.

    • I can’t know the IMEI because my Nokia 5 won’t turn on, just stuck on Powered by Android. But I can access Download Mode. What to do?

    • Hello Narender Singh.
      Can you tell me whether Nokia 6.1 TA-1043 bootloader be unlocked by this unlocking tool?
      Is it free now or will I have to pay for the unlock key?

    • I have Nokia 7 Plus (Android 10). Want to unlock the bootloader.
      What is the procedure. Also I have to buy it for unlock BL? Please help

      • Can not generate the OTP from your page. Only get this error after day change also (Error! Today’s OTP generation limit is consumed. Please try again tomorrow!)

    • Hello,
      I can’t pay with paypal for the key because paypal has banned from our country
      so how I can pay from Turkey?

    • So hi .. It’s me again … I’m sorry, but I really can’t find the email no matter where i look if it’s spam or not I only received 4 emails on June 1st, unfortunately none of them is the one that was said 🙁 But I don’t want to pay for the service again, I could contact you via e-mail or something so that we can sort it out somehow :(?

      • Aha! I noticed that you missed 1 letter (n after the v) in your email address while filling the form. So, your key got sent to the wrong address. You should get it today.

        • Oh im sorry yes i now now I have received the email thanks and thanks for the quick support and answers 🙂 I’ll write again if everything went well, thank you and have a nice day 🙂

          And I am really sorry for the stress I could have caused and or have caused :/

          • No worries, you are welcome 🙂 You can email back to the same address if you face any issues. Will be easier to track.

          • Hi Shahriar, which smartphone do you have? I think the transaction costs for BTC for such a small amount will be relatively too high.

    • Hallo
      I Need help , I bought a key a few days ago but never received an email or message. Help please. 🙁

      • Dear John, I checked your email and a key was sent to you on the 1st of June from contact@”this-domain” email. Please check your spam folder in case you do not see it in your main inbox.

        • Sorry, I don’t want to be mean or imputable to you but I have searched my e-mail inboxes (mail box) including spam but did not find an e-mail 🙁

    • Works well as promised. But be aware that instruction guide is not well written and misleading. Newbies will be frustrated if follow the guide faithfully step by step. Have to figure out for yourself to make it work.

      • Hi Gary, can you tell me the parts of the guide that were misleading? I’d like to improve it 🙂

        • Step 5 of the guide seems to suggest that it is the final step in a single procedure. But in fact, there are 2 separate procedures. One for unlock-go and another for unlock_critical.
          The first procedure stops at step 4. Following which, the phone is wiped.

          The second procedure again requires
          Reenable USB debugging and OEM unlock options (on the phone)
          adb reboot bootloader (to reenter download mode)
          fastboot flash unlock unlockfile.bin
          fastboot flashing unlock_critical

          Hope the suggestion helps.

          • Hi Gary, thanks for the feedback. Actually, the steps to enable OEM Unlocking and USB Debugging can be skipped. One can simply power off the phone and enter the download mode (using key combination) and follow the commands as in step 5. I will be making several changes to the guide over this weekend to make it more current and understandable 🙂

    • Hi
      I did order one unlock key, but
      i didn’t receive one yet so i was wondering how long do i need too wait ?
      Dose anyone know it?

    • Hi.
      I want to buy the Unlock key of Nokia 2. Paypal is not working in our country. Can I send payment via Payoneer?
      Please let me know.
      Thank You.

        • Hello Narender. Has there been any further development on unlocking bootloader on the Nokia 5.3 ? If not , what makes the 5.3 different from the other Nokia phones ? At one point there was a way to unlock the 5.3 . It seems that you have had quite a few people ask for the unlocking of the 5.3 . With me included. Thank you for all of your patience and labor . Lee Champion

          • Hi Lee, it is just that with the start of X.2 series of Nokia phones, hmd made a lot of changes internally. The new phones are not made by FIH Mobile and also their software is more controlled by hmd – including them developing an own internal use Flashing tool. Hence, there’s no discovered way so far to unlock these devices. It seems they are good at securing the software versions that allowed for the bootloader to be unlocked.

    • Very happy to get the bootloader unlocked! Took around two days for me to get the unlock key to my nokia 6.1 but it did work fine. My nokia had its security patch from feb 2018, before the aug 2018 patch, so i had it easier though.

    • HI, my Nokia 6.1 plus got stuck and after i restarted it, it is hung at android one logo. Tried wiping. didnt help. Nokia care has tried installing software but it failed, they want me to change the motherboard of the device. can you help me with it in anyway? If i buy remote service and you are not able to help me will you refund it?

    • can i unlock my bootloader, nokia 5 android 9? and can i email you something pls tell me ur email i have another way of paying

      • You should contact some aftermarket repair services which can flash in EDL mode after disassembling. I heard 1 case where the technician was able to fix the emmc stuck in R/O by flashing the device in EDL (Emergency Download) mode.

    • Hi Narender,

      Wondering if you can help me to unlock my nokia 6.1 plus bootloader running android 10 with latest security patch. Thanks

    • Hey,Bro. Just wanna know if once my phone’s bootloader is unlocked, will it be affected if I update to Android 10. Is the unlocked bootloader permanent? What would make the bootloader locked again? Thank you, Narender.😊

    • Good morning Narender, I have a Nokia 6 (2017) with Android 7.1.1 with the June 2017 patch, I was wondering if it is possible to unlock it because I am willing to pay, but I want to know if they continue to offer the service, if so, I will make payment soon, thanks in advance.

        • It’s something related with my country and how they blocked my phone…nothing about stealing or anything ilegal… Is there really no solution? 🙁

    • Can’t I just blow you or something? I dont have $8 bro. I just want to stop google from tracking me. I could probably send you Brave tokens if you verify with Uphold, then you could exchange it for BTC. It sucks that the only known method is to pay one guy.

    • I paid 20 hours ago, but mail hasn’t come yet. Don’t you accept any more requests? I will wait for your reply… T_T

      • Hi, yes, once unlocked, it will stay unlocked. We already interacted over Telegram. So, I hope all is clear.

      • No. You will need to buy the remote service instead. These unlock keys only work till June 2018.

    • Hi, I need to unload the bootloader for Nokia 6.1 TA-1089 with Android 9.0 March 2019 Security Patch installed.. Help please..

    • Hi, I want to unlock bootloader My Nokia 6.1 Plus since the unlocker provided by Nokia offciial is not working with “unsporrted device” message. How can I proceed?

        • OKthank you for the suggestion. There one thing if it is possible to upgrade the patch after the bootloader has been unlocked? Is it always unlocked even after upgrading later patch?

          • Yes, once unlocked, you can continue to install updates. The bootloader will remain unlocked.

    • hi my Nokia 6.1 got march 2019 update and android system got crashed now its in download mode.
      I need to unlock bootloader can this help and I am from India so how to proceed

    • hello i am using nokia 3.1, android 8.0. patch may 2018
      i want to ask can it unlock bootloader by this method

    • What about MediaTek based Nokia phones? Can the bootloader be unlocked on those? I have a Nokia 5.1(2018) phone which I’d like to unlock and root.

    • hello i am using nokia 7 plus, android 9 patch Feb
      i want to ask can it unlock bootloader by this method

      • Hi, you need to buy the downgrade + unlock service. We need to downgrade the bootloader before unlocking it.

    • Hei, i intrested with UL bootloader for my 6.1 plus region ID here. But only one question, my 6.1 plus already have feb security patch, any method to backup my phone first so when downgrade im not losing any data?

    • hi, I already paid for a unlock code a few months ago, but accidentally deleted the email, I can get it again? thanks.

    • I’m not sure if you can help, but i have i think sept security patch on nokia 8, but 2 days ago, android pie tried to push update and after reboot it is bricked and stuck at android logo. i can get it to download mode but it says cannot flash anything because bootloader all locked… and cannot use official method because.. device bricked. can you help with this?

      • Hello, it must be December since you received the Android Pie update. Can’t unlock on that. I can flash the phone with an older version which will make the phone work. Then you can also unlock the bootloader (if still needed).

    • Great remote service and fast respond. Downgrading and unlocking went without any issues. Very happy with the unlocked boot loader

    • Thankfully, my 6.1 plus phone was unlocked today.
      I sincerely thank the person who helped kindly.
      Now you can prepare Volte services.
      Thank you again for your kindness.

    • He is a very genuine person , helped me resolve to the softbrick issue of nokia 6.1 after trwrp flash ,thanks dear 🙂

    • I want to unlock my nokia 8 bootloader, I can’t get the code by oficial way because only support devices with the newest security patch, in my case, i dont receive any update since June and thats why i need to unlock bootloader and then install updates manually, Could you help me?

      • Hello WRC, that can be done. Please place an order with the details of your Nokia 8, but select Nokia 7 Plus as the device. I’ll take care of it 🙂

    • Hi!
      My Nokia 7 somehow got bricked and I have no ability to get SN from the phone. How can I get it in some other way?
      P.S. Security patch older than August

    • Can unlock bootloader on my phone nokia 7 plus it brick just can boot in to fastboot and i dont know Android Security patch version on this phone

      • It’s really hard to mention without knowing which security patch the device is running. That said, your device can most likely be fixed. I will send you an email regarding this.

    • I have Nokia 7 Plus. I have updated my phone to Android P, then downgraded to Oreo using the flash file from Nokia Developer website ( After wiping the data/factory partition phone starts normally and let me choose the language etc. The problem is system forces me to update the phone immediately, I cannot skip it in any way.
      It just says: “Your phone needs to download an update and restart. size: 1471,3 MB. / This update may take several minutes to download and install. Afterwards, your device will automatically restart”.

      I’m afraid it’s going to update to Android P again.

      I have managed to downgrade to April package using the first file from xda developers site ( However, it is still the same. There is no way to skip the update.

      What to do?

      • If you are looking to unlock the bootloader, then you can simply turn off the phone and use the unlock key. Since the system is currently downgraded, it will accept the Key. The setting from “Developer Options” is not important.
        If you are unhappy with Pie and want to use Oreo, then maybe you can try using Mobile Data while setting up the phone. Ideally no phone should force update on a mobile data connection, but I am not fully sure on this one.

    • Hello,
      I have Nokia 7 Plus with June update. I want to unlock the bootloader, but also update to Android pie after. Can I root the phone after all this?

      • Yes, you can unlock the bootloader and then upgrade to Android Pie. You can root Pie but there are reports that the Pie loses the gesture navigation when Magisk is installed (or in other words, when it is rooted). I have no reason as to why that happens. For some users, gestures come back after a few days, others never get it back till it remains rooted.

    • Dear Arafat, we’d surely like to fulfill orders from Bangladesh, but there’s no way for us to draw payments from your country. bKash is a service available for residents of Bangladesh, but not for non-residents (like us). International payment processors (example Stripe) is not available currently in India. We’re open to any suggestions you may have.

    • Hi, I’m from Bangladesh and and I’m interested to unlock the bootloader. But PayPal isn’t currently available here in Bd. bKash is a popular mobile banking service here. Can you add a payment method for people from Bangladesh?

      • You do not have information regarding the security patch installed on your phone? It is required because new security has blocked the updates. You can find it in Settings > System About > Android Security Patch Level 🙂

    • Hey brother, i’ll receiving my nokia 6.1 plus today and hopefully with july security patch so i was thinking of unlocking BL before updating to August security patch. So what do i need to do to buy your unlock file and it’ll work right? Oh and forgot to mention i am from India so do tell me the procedure and payment method. Regards.

    • Hello Max, since the Nokia 8 uses A/B partition, you can still manage to boot to the non-active partition and you will be taken to the July update. There you can flash the unlock file and gain unlocked bootloader.
      In case your both partitions are updated to August, then it is pretty hard. Please check XDA if somebody is maintaining monthly OTAs. You can flash one of them to downgrade to July and gain unlocking ability.

      • Hi and thanks for your reply,

        Could you please explain the instruction in correct order, now I have the security update for july, how to boot to inactive partition? how to flash the security update?

        Please help, I am in desperate need of unlocked bootloader as my all backups done by Titanium backup and I need root access in order to restore them.


        • Hello Max, I have it written down in this guide. Just go down to the section that says “Workaround for devices upgraded to August 2018 security release”. There are commands which you can use to check your active partition and switch to the inactive one. If the inactive is still on the older bootloader then the unlock file will be accepted and you can finish unlocking the bootloader.
          If the old bootloader does not exist then you are kinda stuck, unless someone has a July 2018 OTA uploaded to XDA which you can download and flash via recovery > Install update from SD card.

          • Hello Narender,

            My question would be how to check whether the second partition is updated with August Security Patch (may I try to set second one active and simply restart device?) and what may happen if I try to unlock bootloader with August Security patch, I may brick phone or the operation will be just unseccessfull.


            • Hi Raf,
              When you change the slot, your device will ideally downgrade to whatever is installed on the secondary slot. So, most likely you will notice the phone booting into the July security patch after changing the slot. However, some devices will not boot and remain stuck on Nokia/Android logo. Also worth noting is that if the system boots up, an update notification will popup. If you go ahead with this update then both of your slots will be updated with the August release.
              You can also decide to rely on fastboot commands to see if the software version has downgraded. fastboot oem getversions is the command that will show you the software version as well. So, check the current software version, then switch the slot and reboot to bootloader to check if it now shows the older software version. You can refer to the sample output from my powershell which can be found here.
              For your latter question, the bootloader will not write the unlock.bin file when you are on August patch. It will call it fail to verify and halt right there. Your phone will stay as is and the operation will be unsuccessful.

    • Hi,
      I do really appreciate your hard work here, could you please tell me how can I downgrade my security patch from August to anything else?
      My phone is NOKIA 8 and the phone keeps updating itself without my permission such a shame to NOKIA.

      • Unless you have updated to August security release, yes. If you have update to August, then you need to downgrade or the unlock will not work.

        • now im using dm-verity method by hikary, and use moded fw version TA1021_PLE-558B-0-00WW-B01, it is supported ?

          • I’m not sure if Hikari’s firmware can get OTA updates. Chances are thin. So, the unlock should be good to go 🙂

            • last question, after unlocking my bootloader, then updated to agustus or latest version, its remain unlocked or became locked again ?

              • Unlocked will remain unlocked. As per Google, both unlock and lock should require manual action from the user (using the volume/power keys to confirm) and cannot be done automatically. It is just that the bootloader is upgraded in August and it no longer decrypts and writes these unlock files, rendering the unlock impossible. Do remember that you’ll have to bear the 5 second long warning at the time of boot (Device is unlocked and cannot be trusted).

    • Hello :)! This error occurred in the payment method .. “There was an error while trying to send your message, please try again later.” How can I make the payment: /?

      • Hello Gabriele, apologies. The form was facing some issues due to the email service making some changes to how emails were sent. It should be back to normal now and you can order 🙂

    • My country doesn’t have PayPal I do only have credit card so I need further assistance for paying you

      • We currently do not have a credit card gateway to help you out with this. Stripe does not work in India yet. Maybe you will be able to complete a guest checkout after filling the form, by paying using your DC/CC without needing a PayPal account.

    • Hey admin
      I need that code desperately
      But the problem is i am from Pakistan yar paypal Pakistan mai kam nh krtaa
      Koi or payment method btaen
      Mai nokia 7 plus leke phas gya hoon root hi nhee hotaa.
      I need that key yar
      Please do this favour to your neighbor.please
      I will be in your debt forever.

    • hey, it’s been 23 hours now and i still haven’t received my code. Could you please look into it? thanks!

    • Please, can you contact me? I couldn’t use a paypal in my country. Maybe there is another way to pay you?

    • I paid but nobody answered me.I think I wrote the email address incorrectly. I don’t know how check it. What can I do?

      • Your email address is correct, Dmitri. I am sorry for the delay. Your unlock key should be in your email inbox in the next 15 minutes 🙂

      • Sorry Dmitri, I do not know how to accept money using QIWI in India. So, that won’t work out for me 🙁

    • Since my nokia 6 is a backup phone, I’ll participate in testing of new features available after bootloader unlock without fear to brick it.
