So, this is a short tutorial on how to unlock a smartphone running Android 5.0 or latest without installing any extra software. It is the method I use to unlock my Android phone with my Dangerous Things xNT chip

 

This tutorial is written based on my LG phone, I do believe that other brands have slightly diffirent settings menus. If anyone is willing to recreate this tutorial on a diffirent brand I would be happy to include it
