Contacted them, no answer.
Any possibility to root? Treble? "No Wake On Charge" is crucial, as far as i know, this can be achieved with Xposed, which requires root.
TWRP for Tab8? Anything? Or do i really need to return itm cause it's not usable..

Ok, after all the hassle i have the boot image and i unlocked the bootloader from Developer Options but bootloader is still locked:
Sending 'boot_a' (17300 KB)                        OKAY [  0.782s]
Writing 'boot_a'                                   FAILED (remote: 'Flashing Lock Flag is locked. Please unlock it first!')


How come bootloader is still locked?

In fastbootd:
fastboot oem unlock

UPDATE

I have unlocked the bootloader but now i'm in a situation, where i need to flash original firmware/ROM image but
SPD_Upgrade_Tool_R24.0.0003 and naturally neither SPD_Research_Tool_R24.0.0003 or SPD_Factory_Tool_R24.0.0003
(cause they appear to be identical or at least similar) do not detect my Tab8

I guess this is a driver problem, so can i also have the correct drivers please?
I'm obviously in a hurry with this. Thank you. 

I also sent e-mail to support02@blackview.hk (no need to suggest that) but they didn't bother to answer to my first one so i'm not feeling very enthusiastic about this one.

As i understand someone with technical skills used to give support in this forum and now that person has been replaced with administrative one?
Why have a forum, when all your questions are being redirected to e-mail nobody bothers to answer.

Is the bootloader permanently locked or unlocked on the Tab8 device?
