Default Unlocking with carrier provided code

My contract just expired so got an unlock code from AT&T, but it doesn't work. According to the instruction email, it won't work on a rooted device.

Does anyone have experience, if I odin to stock, would the unlock code work, and if the phone would stay unlocked if I flash a custom ROM?

Also, could anyone post the files to odin to MDL? The link it the thread that had it no longer works.

Thanks.

You cant unlock with at&t sim!!
You need tmobile sim card to unlock. If you tried already go head back to stock do unlock aim with different carried sim then flash what ever rom you want.
Good luck

Thanks. Luckily I have a Peruvian SIM card, from when I traveled, I used that to trigger the code and failed twice to unlock. I know I only have 5 attempts total so I wanted to make sure to get it right the next time. Did you tried just unrooting on your custom ROM? I'm wondering if that would be enough or going back to stop is required.
