[Q] Need some help unlocking at AT&T Note II
I was recently laid off from my job, but still have the Note 2 I had paid for when I started. The company refuses to pay the ETF on the line, so AT&T won't unlock it to let me use the phone on Straight Talk. I'm looking at rooting it, rolling it back to an earlier version, and unlocking it that way, but I'm unclear as to how to do it.
I know I can root, flash a 4.1.1 stock rom and unlock it that way, but I've also seen posts saying all I need to do is flash an old modem. Which is it? And if I'm just flashing back to 4.1.1 to unlock it, is the best course of action to do a nandroid backup of my current state and flash that after unlocking? Everything should stay unlocked, right?
