Unable to unlock Bootloader on Zenfone 9 and Zenfone 10

Star III

 Because the bootloader could not be unlocked on Zenfone 9, I decided to write to Asus Support to be told when it would be possible to unlock the bootloader on Z9 and Z10. The response I received was that it would no longer be possible to unlock the boot on any of these phones. Upon receiving this news I decided not to buy the Z10. I think it is a big mistake that Asus has decided that the boot cannot be unlocked. I don't know if they will change their mind, but there will be many of us who decide NOT to buy it.



I think it is a wise decision. Asus will lose users and will also have bad publicity for having allowed to unlock the BOOT at the beginning and then stop allowing it with excuses that we do not believe

@Mansi_ASUScan we get an update on this? Is it true that Asus won't be brining back the unlock took anymore for the Zenfone 9 and 10? Thanks

The email I received is from the end of July

I totally agree . Before I already commented that the best thing would be to return the terminals so that they realize that their policy is wrong. Every day there are more brands that do not allow the BOOT to be unlocked. Xiaomi leaves because its software is terrible. Motorola nonda problems and has very good software

The Q3 was such obvious BS since it was first announced. Why stop supporting unlocking the bootloader for the ZF9 until you (supposedly) update the tool to support the Z10? Keep it as is and just release the updated version that supports both on Q3.  Asus  decided to kill rooting since the tool stopped working and were lied to about it coming back.
