Just purchased an unlock code from Telus but it does not work. I know some posts mentioned it only works with a stock dialer app.
Is there anything else I can try before attempting that?

If not, what stock rom can I even use? And is there a guide available?

Sorry if this has been asked before. I had trouble finding any answers.

Thank you.

Just flash your stock firmware with Odin.

The boot loader on your phone will determine which firmware to load on your phone.

If you have the 4.3 bootloader, don't flash 4.1.1 or 4.1.2.

Flashed stock rom, booted with sim inserted, and entered the unlock code when asked. It worked! Thanks for the reassurance, I was hesitant.

Here are some links I came across that might help others.


Downloaded latest ROM for my carrier: http://samsung-updates.com/device/?id=SGH-I747m

Got Odin from this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1722686

Followed these threads to flash with Odin:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1722686

Read the CyanogenMod guide to install SlimKat: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_d2att

SlimKat XDA thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2758209
Root: http://slimroms.net/index.php/faq/sl...-i-enable-root

Downloaded Texdroider DPI from the play store to change to S3 default (320)

Then I thanked everyone I could!

Notes

* I forgot to wipe my device before and it still worked.
* TWRP would not read my SD card for some reason.
* Good info threads:

Glad to hear you got it to work! Couple things for extra knowledge. ..

You can also get firmware from http://sammobile.com/firmwares. Their downloads are much faster than samsung-updates IME.
Easiest root method ever! - Towelroot (shouldn't trip the warranty bit either)

If I'm not mistaken, the recoveries having problems reading the sd card is due to your hardware version. I believe they found a solution in the Sprint forums, but I haven't had a chance to read up on it yet. If its something I can do I'll probably try to fix the T-Mobile and AT&T recoveries. I may be mistaken on some of that, but its how I understood it after a quick search the other day.
