Lenovo P2, launched back in the good ol’ days (yeah, right) of 2016, was a good phone. It sported a large 5.5′ display, Android 7.0 Nougat (second most popular Android OS to date) and a very large 5100mAh battery. Even today, without the upgrade to 8.0 Oreo, it is a reliable phone with a significant number of owners. Unfortunately, these owners are now facing a serious problem with their devices.
An increasingly large number of Lenovo P2 units has problems with unlocking their bootloader. Whenever somebody tries to enable OEM unlocking in order to run the ”fastboot oem unlock” command, they have to agree to the terms stating that they have to wait fourteen days for Lenovo servers to register your device. That is not the problem; the problem is that every time they try to register for the waiting period due to an error saying that, quote, ”LenovoId email not verified”. Bummer. The issue has been going on for nearly a year, and Lenovo has FINALLY gotten around to fixing it. That, unfortunately, is all we know at the moment, as Lenovo posted no updates since their last statement.
So much for companies’ fast response, I guess.
