Hi, I am trying to unlock my Xperia XA2 Plus Dual SIM and am miserably failing on both Ubuntu and MacOS.

On Ubuntu I use the Ubuntu android-tools-fastboot tools.

sudo fastboot devices gives me the following output:

CQ30013MXH fastboot

However, a sudo fastboot -i 0xfce oem unlock

(with the proper unlock code preceded by 0x) gives me:

... FAILED (remote: Command not allowed) finished. total time: 0.097s

Use a USB 2.0 port or a put a USB 2.0 hub between your computer and your phone.

Same thing with a USB 2.0 hub in between. Am pretty sure that the cable I am using is USB 2.0 anyway.

Ok, this was PEBCAK: I had allowed for USB bootlocker unlocks in the developer settings.
