    I can’t unlock the bootloader.
    remote:oem unlock is not allowed.

    What can I do?

    • Satyaranjan

      I was facing the same problem. This may help (worked for me, so try your luck)
      Go to Settings>Developer options>OEM unlocking, toggle it to be on

      If you can’t find Developer option then you need to unlock it by going to Setting>About phone, and click on the build number (something like YU_YU4711_SW_V0……) 5 – 7 times.
      Then go to Developer option and toggle” USB Debugging ” and “OEM unlocking” to be on.
