unknown error occurred , which may be a network error please try later

This annoying sh1t occurs when I try to unlock the device with the official unlock tool for 4.2.

Actually what I want is just to root it, but currently it's no way out but unlock it to flash in the root.

How am I supposed to deal with it? I can't bear using an unrooted device.

Thanks for any help. Though I know most of your solutions won't work.

Don't you need to update to 4.3 first? Careful. I'm pretty sure you have to get updated to 4.3 first then unlock. Make sure Google 2 step verification is disabled secondly. I do not know if a 4.2 unlock tool exists for 4.3.

Sorry I didn't see you were on 4.3 already.

Does this is a Nexus device? Then you can try Wugfresh Nexus toolkit.

I just recollect that I had the same issue. A network error like no internet connection. I just kept trying until it worked. I assumed it was the router.

Did you try "fastboot unlock" to unlock the boot loader instead. The Collection thread says you can do that. Try the one included with the SDK for whatever platform your on.

You can only unlock using the asus unlock tool - the bootloader is encrypted and other methods won't work. Just keep trying it - it will eventually unlock. Some people said they had to try it hundreds of times before it eventually let them do it. No idea why.

Thank you anyway though I don't think continuous trying unlocking would be a feasible solution since I try billions of times and alter many network accesses. So annoying is it. The stock ROM is slow, odexed, laggy, and with piles of useless apps.

Argh...
