Try flashing stock 1.34 from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/desi...4-1-2-t2849467

Just before your post, I start super SU app, and for now it seems OK. I can reboot and mobile works normally.

Anyway, firmware.zip went ok as far as I remember (update was done 3 weeks ago), also I dind't install ultimate kernel. Didn't change kernel at all. Is this necessary, to change kernel?
BR.

Sim unlock works

Boot your device into cwm. Connect your device to your computer (with the cable), and connect with:

Code:
adb shell
then, type:
Code:
strings -n 8 /dev/block/mmcblk0p7
The output will be a lot of rubbish, but you need to And In the case of ATRAC3, it was K65151479, so his unlock code was 65151479. I haven't tested this myself, because my device was never sim locked, but it should work.
Full credits for this go to @ATRAC3, this post.

I want to say that it works... Tested in 2 devices single sim. (Thx a lot for this greate thread )
