Octoplus Digital License
What is it?
Digital License is a digital product with the same functionality as activations that doesn`t require any dongle or box and is bound to your PC.
So what's the point?
You have a choice: invest in a physical carrier with unlimited usage or spend little money on a short-term license. Besides that there is no shipping fee, so you're saving on this as well and you don't have to wait for delivery.
What options are available?
Separate licenses for LG, Samsung, Huawei, FRP and FULL all-in-one combining them all.
Are they unlimited?
No, they are limited in time. 6 month or 1 year period.
Can I upgrade 6 months license to 1 year?
Unfortunately no, that's not possible. You can arrange an exchange with your seller if you hadn't used it though.
I own a box already. Do I need this?
No, you don't
Does that means I have to pay each year to use my box?
No, you don't
Can I activate a timed license on my box?
No, there are no possible reasons to do so. You can buy a license and use them independently if you want or buy an unlimited activation for box users.
Can I convert my box to digital unlimited license?
No, there is no such possibility
So who will need this?
New customers who don't own any product from Octoplus family yet
Is there any difference between digital license and box (dongle)?
In terms of functionality there is no difference. Digital license is limited in time, whereas box is not. And you must be connected to the Internet all the time.
And what about the support area access?
License users can't register at Boot-Loader.com, but alternative support area is accessible from Octoplus software.
Does digital license require credits too?
Yes, there is no difference. Server based operations require the same amount of credits as for box users.
Can I buy a license for credits?
No, credits are not accepted as a payment method.
Can I use it on multiple PCs?
Yes, if they are yours and you're not sharing your licenses with someone else. You can switch between PCs after 48 hrs from last HWID activation. During COVID-19 pandemic we allow to use same license on 2 PC's without switching limits.

Factory Unlock and Remote Services
Important! Issues described in this section are related to Factory Unlock and Remote Services ONLY and cannot be related to phone unlocking procedures via Read Codes or TMB Unlock.

After that, film your unsuccessful unlock procedure in HD. This video should clearly show phone IMEI number, phone model, how it is locked and the unlock procedure when unlock code was entered, evenly and slowly. Then upload your video to youtube.com and send the link with the video to our technical support team.
After your video is reviewed and analyzed by development team, a decision will be made. You will either get your credits back or consulted on what was done incorrectly and how to fix it.
Q: I made a request to unlock the phone, but later realized that I made a mistake and phone model is incorrect, I need to unlock other device. How do I get my credits back?
