first off....F*** sprint....and the rest of the U.S. monopoly gang....

and I have mad respect for all the hard workers here, sleepless nights, discovering solutions...

im no where near the brilliance as these other top guys but i have here to do my part

i have a sprint note 3, im using it with vzw prepaid currently, but i am eager for the GSM solution.

i have unlocked the Sprint S4, HTC one m7, LG G2, i havent tried the LG Flex yet...but the Note 3 would be great..

i was reading of someone flashing some N900J software to wipe the internal folders where the lock exist..

but i've also hard bricked phones trying to write other software on them...lol

i know someone has the solution....where are you.....you damn genius! ....lol

What does "DOMESTIC UNLOCK" mean?

Crash course: there's an encrypted file system that holds VERY sensitive information on your phone to control wifi, mobile networks and probably more. We cannot decrypt it but we can access files in it called nv items. In particular nv items there's parameters in hexadecimal. One of these items contains an international lock and I'm assuming another contains a domestic lock. A domestic lock locks out all domestic (US) GSM carriers. The international one blocks non-US (overseas) carriers.

The international lock is a known nv item (nv item 10124) HOWEVER this item is secured by not being able to read or write to it. On android 4.2.2 the modem allowed us to access the nvm/num folder where you have access to ALL nv items to read AND write. The catch here: the note 3 ever came with 4.2.2. Every modem after 4.2.2 the folder is locked even after sending the 16 char password and SPC.

Sprint GSM lock/unlock 101. Class is dismissed.
