Bootloader unlock allowed: No

As this is an old model I wonder if anyone has successfully found a way to bypass the locked bootloader on devices where officially the bootloader canot be unlocked as on my Xperia Z5 Premium the rooting status is NO.  Thanks

I'm sorry to tell you this but there isn't a way to do so, as you will have to replace the motherboard to be able to unlock the bootloader.

Anytime, this is not on Sony but the carrier network that requested this to be locked.
