    Hi there will this work on the ALE-L02 ?

  10. Thanks a lot for your help, it really worked great for me. I struggled for a long time, from unlocking the boot to getting fastboot to detect my phone, it was a nightmare. With fastboot i realised i was using an outdated version of the driver.
    With unclocking i used a method i saw on youtube, i got the lock key instantly instead of that 14 days waiting period nonsense. You are a start man, give than man a bell!
