3. Go to Settings -> Developer options and enable OEM Unlock option.
Notice: This is the “state transition” mentioned earlier.
NOTE: You will be asked to do a factory reset, that’s normal.
You should take a look at the whole guide and be prepared to use reboots as chances to flash or reboot into TWRP.

– Option 2: Download and Install the standalone driver package.
