Phone [Q] SIMLOCK - Xperia Z1 C6903

Hi,

I was trying to install the deodexed version of 4.4.2 Stock rom for my C6903
But it stuck at SONY logo,
so i flashed the older 4.2.2 FTF (C6903_14.1.G.1.534_1276-4314_R2A.ftf)
And now my phone is SIMLOCKED what the hell.
It did not have a simlock before, because in Belgium they don't do that.

Is there a way to get rid of it without unlocking bootloader to get full control of device kernel and ****...

FYI - I have a TA Backup of a working 4.2.2 and also of a working 4.4.2, might that help me getting rid of the simlock?

Thanks in advice

IMEI will come back if you flash a 4.3 or 4.4 FTF

SIMLOCK should have nothing to do with flashing FTFs

Try and flash a FTF from your original phone and try again

Thanks you for the support.
But one question left, always if my phone reboots i need to do the setup wizard again, set language and...

And the language also changes, i set it to dutch but on restart its back to english and i get the setup wizard?

I had the same problem, it happen when you flash a different FTF for your region, I updated to 4.3 and it disappear.

...btw if you execute a Factory Reset maybe it will fix the problem.
IF I HELPED DO NOT SAY THANKS, CLICK IT.
