hi i have a samsung galaxy j7 pop sm-j727vpp and the oem unlocking is missing in my developer options is there a way to get this back or oem unlock a different way

It is because your phone's bootloader is locked by Verizon. Please unlock the bootloader first before proceeding with these steps.

That's what I thought I was trying to do? One of the steps was to turn on the OEM onlock feature which is unavailable.
Those are entirely different things. :lol: You will only get the OEM unlock once the bootloader is unlocked.

J7 here. No OEM unlock either....

Is it carrier locked?


Yes. Verizon locked. Trying to unlock it to use on another carrier that uses Verizon towers ironically.

Please unlock it first and try the root.

i have my bootloader unlocked and still dont have OEM in settings any ideas?

For some carrier locked phones this happens. Don't worry if you can root it. You are good to go.

It keeps failing when I flash. Any ideas or is it impossible?

Because your phone's bootloader needs to be unlocked before performing the root.

I'm having a problem finding the oem unlock button. I've been searching for about 10 min and i cant find it. I have a verizon s6 but its an old phone that doesn't have service which is why i want to root it.

That is because your carrier (Verizon) has locked it. First you need to unlock your phone's bootloader.

Since the update to Nougat I can no longer post media of any kind I can only send thru Facebook Messenger and MMS. So here is the first couple of options in my "Developer Tools." In the order they appear.
"Submit bug report, desktop backup support, stay awake, Bluetooth HCI snoop log, running services, Webview implementation, multiprocess webview, auto-update system, demo mode is debugging, revoke sub debugging authorizations, include bug reports in power menu, mock location app, view attribute inspection, select app to be debugged, wait for debugger, verify apps via usb, buffer size for logging, authorize wireless display device certificates, Wi-fi verbose logging, aggressive wi-fi/cell handover, allow wi-fi roaming scans, keep mobile data turned on, usb configuration, disable absolute volume, show touches, show pointer location, show screen updates, show layout boundaries, force rtl layout, window animation scale, transition animation scale, animator duration scale, simulate secondary displays, minimum width, force gpu rendering, show gpu view updates, show hardware layers updates, debug gpu overdraw, show non-rectangular clips, turn on 4X MSSA, turn off hardware overlays, simulate color space, prevent USB audio routing, strict mode, show cpu usage, gpu rendering profile." The OEM Unlock option was right below "Bluetooth HCL snoop" before the update but since the update it's not been an option.
Let me guess, you are trying root this phone right? If so you don't have to enable the OEM unlocking to proceed anymore. For some devices the "OEM unlock" option is no more there after Marshmallow and Nougat updates.

Let me assume that you have Nougat....It should be there unless it is disabled by your carrier. Please post a screens[censored] of the "developer options".
