Any problems getting the boot loader unlocked?

I'm still leery about flashing android, but the way things are going I may end up having to go that route on my P20... :(

Have Phh-treble running on my Mi Max 3. Haven't updated since I bought it about 2 years ago. Once I was able to get everything working right I didn't want to mess with it again. Getting bluetooth audio + calls was a serious hassle at the time. Only later did I notice that notification LED wouldn't work but it worked for others. But didn't want to risk issues w/ bluetooth again so I just left it.

Nope, enabled Developer Options and OEM Unlock, fastboot commands worked fine to unlock. I've restored back to the stock ROM too a few times already, actually v1.1 is better than v1.2 (has really poor audio quality). Haven't attempted to re-lock it yet though.

If you have Umidigi too, their ROMs are found here: https://community.umidigi.com/forum.php?mod=forumdisplay&fid=125 along with the SP Flash Tool to revert back pretty easily.

I will have to figure out how to make my own overlay if I do keep one of these GSI/Treble ROMs running since right now the status bar ends up under the front camera and the corners cut it off too.

Cool. I've got an A5 Pro that I use as my non-phone android device (and on-hand backup if something were to happen to my huawei). Not sure I need to flash it as it seems to be doing what I want, but it might be a good way to practice the process for when I may have to do it to my P20 (I'm hoping huawei might actually go back to offering boot loader unlocking by default).

Two Brondell Swash 1000s. Had a Biobidet at the old place, but Costco.ca had a promo and these are the best you can get short of the really pricey Toto slim models (which are 4 figures more).

Went to Japan about 4-5 years ago and it made me realize we live like savages here ;)

dude. You're gonna love that thing. I love mine.
I too was a switch over from Japan, kinda...but by a Japanese friend who had them in their house. :unsure:
I'd have one at work too if only for the lack of a semi private washroom lol
