Default USB unlocking the skyrocket

So Im trying to unlock my skyrocket and ATT is not letting me saying that device is excluaive etc....
I see on eBay, youtube etc... thay there is a way to unlock using some app via USB.

Is this real? Where can I find this with out paying?

This thread is about paid service, Im looking to do this for free. Why does this work on sg2 and not on skyrocket? Are you guys saying those ebay sales for usb unlocking is a scam?

AT&T is evil. Check out this thread also. You can also wait 6-8 months, and AT&T SHOULD have an unlock code by then.

I think 6-8 months is a bit far fetched. They usually do 6-8 after release, which we are approaching. I guess Ill keep trying with ATT. I tought we can do the USB unlocking like the sg2 and like the sites are offering paid service.

all we need is a dedicated dev to find the hidden files where the code lives, like they did on the galaxy s 4g, that was so easy i unlocked 5 of those in less than 1 hour, FREE.
So naturally when the galaxy came out, I tried the same way as in before but no luck the files are somewhere else and are very difficult to find
