Hi guys,

New note 3 user and new to t-mobile.

Perhaps an already answered question, but how exactly do I go about unlocking my bootloader? I want to flash cm11 and twrp. Are the tmobile phones already unlocked?

If the answer to the above is no, what are the steps to get it unlocked and a new recovery installed? Point to a link would be great.

Thanks!

If you don't care about the possibility of voiding your warranty due to the KNOX issue
then go ahead and root then flash custom recovery...

Good luck!

It is....to gain root. However, if you flash twrp(or a custom kernel, or non-stock rom for that matter) , you will change knox warranty to 0x1.

I've seen a thread about a safestrap recovery, but have no idea what roms work with it. You may (or may not) be able to get cm11 to work with it. You'll have to do some research.
