    I'm no longer interested in blackberry's stock ROM, especially now that I know that there are almost 100% de-googled Android ROMs (ReplicantOS, LineageOS... etc). What is it that stops blackberry from allowing us to do these things to our own devices? Thank you.

    I don't know why this is in the Bold 9900 forum for some reason, but anyway, locking down devices is a bullet point on the box. To quote them:

    Security starts with the manufacturing process, and stays with your smartphone from that point forward. When you boot up, each component of hardware and software is validated to ensure your device hasn’t been tampered with. Then your device is continuously monitored for events or changes that indicate a compromise to device security.

    If you want a rooted device, you definitely bought the wrong brand. It's all about security.

    Not only did you purchase the wrong brand if you want to root and unlock the device, you actually paid extra for the privilege.

    Because it's a Blackberry, that's why. Show me any BlackBerry device ever produced that could be rooted.

    I don't think that was technically a "root" but I might be wrong!

    I always wonder how people knowledgeable enough to select and install a custom ROM can select and purchase a BlackBerry whose major point of differentiation is its unrootability.
