Would it be easily possible to change out the firmware/software motherboard with the replacement part found and purchased online, making the phone unlocked assuming the new part came out of or is a new replacement for a non carrier specific S5. If so, anyone know where to find. Ill buy and do it within the next week dep on price. Thanks for any advice!! Also info on different 4g network chips that can handle more frequencies and still work with the firmware (custom or stock)

Are you kidding? ??? With what we have on ATT S5 with lock bootloader and no root make genetic phone? He is talking about to replace main board on phone. I think easier way is to buy t-mobile phone. Proof me wrong.

Swiping from dark side of Galaxy S5.

the board to replace is still quite expensive besides remember that some variants are slightly different on the inside and the frame might not fit perfectly with the board when you try to put it back together and even if it does i dont know how that will affect the whole ip67 water proof-ness......
