Re: Is unlocked bootloader XZ3 possible to update to Android Q Beta?

Sadly this isn't possible, since the Xperia Companion Tool refuses to flash any device with bootloader unlocked. It's a shame that Sony only offers the beta that way and does not even offer a way to relock the bootloader even though the warning boot screen always asks me to lock the bootloader

 

PS:

It's really odd that on one hand Sony wants developers to use this beta to test their apps etc, but at the same time they lock out anyone with unlocked bootloader

And as we can see by now: No one at Sony seems to care... Guess while I like my XZ3, my next device shouldn't be a Sony again
