Hi kevkamikaze! It is unlocked nv_data.bin.. Extract, copy to /efs folder, set permission rwx---,delete nv_data.bin.md5, reboot phone and Enjoy!!!

Some terminal commands:
Code:
su
stop
rm /efs/nv_data.bin
rm /efs/nv_data.bin.md5
cat /sdcard/nv_data.bin >> /efs/nv_data.bin
chmod 755 /efs/nv_data.bin
chown radio.radio /efs/nv_data.bin || chown 1001.1001 /efs/nv_data.bin
reboot

Guys, got someone over in Q&A who doesn't have 10 posts up in this thread who needs a bit of help.

Could someone who is experienced with these matters (I'm not) have a look at the thread I've linked & maybe help this guy out ?

Thanks in advance

Yes there is a working method, but its not released. They are not hashes in the new nv_data format, well they are not hashes as they are stored, but once manipulated they become hashes

I hope it gets released soon since I alredy tried the old method and CHainfires app even buy an unlock from gsmliberty.net and mobilefreedom.net, fortunately they gave me A refound. So I'm getting out of options


And well since I'm desperate I wan't to try the method of Mr. dertys_ since it seam to work for my fellow crusher1908 from the same country and carrier.

Leave here my nv_data.bin
