Not sure what the code 7 is, but the ATT i527 has no recovery. No recovery....no flashy.

If you are looking for root and you are still on JB 4.2, www.kingoapp.com will root your phone.
If you are upgraded to 4.4 then we have lost rooting capabilities for now.

There are several threads on this subject, please feel free to read.
