Lenovo P2 is a smartphone that Lenovo released two years ago, exactly July 2016. Smartphone is aiming for the middle class brings some of the best mid-range specifications of its time. Includes the use of Snapdragon 625 processor which is a power-saving chipset built with 14nm technology, 5.5 inch FullHD screen, 64GB ROM and 4GB RAM.

Of course, the most interesting feature introduced by this smartphone, is a large battery capacity of 5100 mAh, which is claimed to be able to provide power for up to two days of use. Unfortunately, Lenovo P2 has little shortage due to lack of software support in it.

This smartphone was originally launched by running Android 6.0 Marshmallow and then got official updates for Android v7.0 Nougat. However, the update for the latest Android Oreo is something that is impossible, at least if you are currently waiting for the official update to be rolled out to Lenovo P2.

Fortunately the custom ROM community has been using this smartphone, with the official release of Lineage OS 14.1 and even LineageOS 15.1 Oreo ready to run on the smartphone. With a dedicated ROM, Lenovo P2 owners can still enjoy their smartphone without feeling 'outdated' when it comes to software support.

However, there is an annoying problem which then occurs for Lenovo P2 users who want to update their smartphone from available custom ROMs, and the problem is the inability to unlock Lenovo P2 bootloader.

If you know a custom ROM, you certainly understand this problem. Unlocking the bootloader is indispensable for flashing custom made ROMs into your smartphone because the locked bootloader can only boot boot.img on the smartphone, not allowing users to flash other AOSP-based boot.img as there are now to run LineageOS.

Typically, this process involves enabling developer options on Android-based devices and checking the available OEM lock options. After that, the user must reboot into the bootloader and apply the "open fastboot OEM" command that connects to the smartphone.

For Lenovo P2, when you try to check the "Allow OEM Unlock" option, you must first accept some provision to certify that this procedure will void your warranty. After reviewing it, you must sign in with a Lenovo account and wait 14 days for permission. However, some P2 owners are not even able to log in and have a caption "because the Lenovo ID email address error has not been verified. Some Lenovo P2 users say they have verified their Lenovo ID, but still fail. This problem has occurred in some Lenovo P2 users over the past year or so.

The latest news says that Lenovo is currently deciding to investigate this issue. Last week, a Senior MotoAgent posted a comment on a forum stating that they were looking for root causes in Lenovo P2 regarding the bootloader. However, so far there has been no software update for Lenovo P2 since this news circulated. Unfortunately, the owner of Lenovo P2 had to wait a little longer to find out what was going on, at least to get a solution from the booloader failed problem.
