Along with that, when attempting to search for a network provider the phone tells me that there's a network error. Somewhere on the original thread (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2551715
) there was something about it however I didn't understand exactly how to do it, so if anyone could help out, give some steps that would be great!
This is a bit like what I had
. Non-stock based ROM's (such as CyanogenMod) don't play nice with the unlock process. Normally when you boot up with the foreign SIM card in, it will ask for the unlock code before you can even get to the dialer.
To complete the unlock process, you must be on stock, or a stock based ROM. I used MikTouch (download link
), and aside from the first boot taking forever (almost thought it was in bootloop), the process went smoothly. However, to use MikTouch, you will need to downgrade your recovery temporarily (or you will get an assert failure while flashing).
Hope this helps.
