I may just restore back to 4.3 from the Rogers build (I like official builds) but I'm looking for ideas on WHY this happened, also ways to avoid it.I'd love to run 4.4.2 properly without needing a SIM Unlock.
Having said that, are their any non-code unlocks for this? Or is it all code-based unlocking on this model??
If you check out polish_pat's thread, it'll guide you through the flash process. What I think you have done is substituted the Mexican CSC in place of your own and locked it (I could be wrong) . --- you need to use the Rogers one, check his thread out it has the links etc in it also
