Default [Q] SIM card unlock

Good day to all!

I have a SGS III running JellyBean 4.1.2 (I don't know the stock with which it came with) and I am trying to do a sim unlock

I have tried many apps sugested on the forums and I even tried getting the nv_data.bin with ADB and using a hexeditor but the position specified in the tutorials does not exist

http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...-free-t1718665 (Step 2)

Also unlocking apps say that the phone has a different protection system than expected (otherwise they would have done what I have tried manually)

I will attatch the nv_data.bin, any bit of information will be GREATLY appreciated!

Search and read, there is no free sim unlock anymore. Hundreds of identical threads all saying buy a code.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

Hey everyone, I have managed to unlock my phone with a paid service that gives you a network operator code, but I have backed up my efs folder before and after unlocking, where can I provide these folders for the good people of xda to use so they can produce other unlockers?
