BootUnlocker for Nexus Devices

BootUnlocker for Nexus Devices


This application REQUIRES a Galaxy Nexus (GSM, Verizon, or Sprint), Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 10, or OnePlus One with root. Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 are not supported yet.



You've rooted your device, and you are trying to decide between the security of relocking your bootloader (with stock recovery and USB Debugging off), and the flexibility of leaving it unlocked.

You know that in order to prevent an unauthorized user from accessing your data by flashing a custom recovery, "fastboot oem unlock" wipes your data. This also means that if you relock your bootloader, you will need to do a full backup-and-restore whenever you decide to unlock it again.

BootUnlocker for Nexus Devices lets you have the best of both worlds by using root privileges to unlock your bootloader from within Android, without wiping your data. This allows you to keep your bootloader locked for security, with this application safely protected behind your lockscreen password. Whenever you want to unlock or relock your bootloader, just unlock your screen and run BootUnlocker.

Secure once again It's great being able to lock/unlock the bootloader at will, giving that extra layer of security should my phone get lost/stolen. Would live to see Nexus 7 (wifi, ie nakasi) support.

Now indispensable This app made switching back to a stock recovery a breeze. Without it I would have had to wipe the phone just to unlock the bootloader to flash recovery. Well worth having on your device so you can quickly unlock/lock the bootloader.
