I'm trying to get this done tonight. I have work at 530am and already cut up my sim card which I now wish I wouldn't have done until I found out how retarded ATT is about unlock codes.

Went ahead and gave cellunlocker a try, fully convinced that I was about to lose 30 bucks, and it actually worked. Using rom manager to flash the latest CWM so I can flash AoCP kitkat.

The straight talk sim should work without an unlock code. Provided you have an AT&T compatible sim card that they recently started using again. My phone is an AT&T locked s3 using a Net10 sim. Put it in and then go to the APN Settings, insert your settings, reboot and enjoy. Tracfone, straight talk and Net10 are all 3 one in the same company, I assume since that's how it works on Net10 it will work that way for you.

Although I don't know for a fact that you shouldn't have to be unlocked someone else who does run straight talk could maybe post up.

Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 running S3Rx MJ2 bootloader MJB modem and it is smooth

It's the tmobile sim from straight talk so I needed the unlock which is done already.

Now I'm trying to get stuff to install. I installed rom manager but it won't flash CWM, it just sits on "flashing." I also can't get supersu or superuser to work. I think it has something to do with knox, and/or the method I used to root this thing last night.

Used this method(#2) to flash cwm/remove knox...

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2538991

...and it worked. Was able to then flash 4.4 aocp and the latest gapps. Everything seems to be working and I'm not getting those stupid security warnings anymore.
