***** IMPORTANT ROOT IS REQUIRED BEFORE PROCEEDING *****

TO ROOT YOUR INFUSE 4G GO THE FOLLOWING LINK AFTER ROOTING PROCEED BELOW

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=803682


***** ALSO PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE ACTUALLY APPLYING STEPS *****


All right ladies and gentlemen, coders and non coders again I have personally found the unlock code NOT THE FREEZE CODE only the unlock code for your Samsung Infuse 4G by ATT hidden in the same files as previous Samsung phones.

This procedure is similar to finding the unlock code for the Vibrant 4G for those that have performed my steps in the past it should be a no brainer but if not please once again read everything carefully its not hard but just takes patience Of-course this all depends on your dedication and time but hopefully I have simplified it for you.

Steps:

1. Install "010 Hex editor" you can use trial does not have to be registered

2. Go to your Infuse 4G and open a terminal emulator (free on the Market) - (Root Required)

The following steps are credit to SS2006 on a different post

*** Dont forget the (su) command *** after the second line
_____

after opening a terminal emulator type the following

cd /dev/block <enter>
su <enter> <at this point your phone will ask for superuser access ALLOW it if you already haven't done so>
dd if=/dev/block/bml3 of=/sdcard/external_sd/bml3.bak <enter>

note: if you dont have an external SD CARD type the following

dd if=/dev/block/bml3 of=/sdcard/bml3.bak

Go find the file on your SD Card or Internal Storage depending on your situation and transfer it to your computer

3. Open 010 Hex Editor

4. In 010 Hex Editor go to the Menus above and select VIEW>LINEFEEDS>SELECT CUSTOM>SET YOUR BYTES TO "32" Nothing Less

5. Locate the bml3.bak file you created and transfered to your computer and open it using the editor

(CREDIT TO FR0Z3N FOR CLARIFYING THE FOLLOWING 2 STEPS)

6. Using your keyboard select CRTL+F to search for a hex string, when the search window pops up select "Hex byte" in the Type field and then search for the following string below:

"FFFFFFFFFF0100000000" ALL TOGETHER, Then Hit the FIND ALL button to the right, some of you will get many results and others up to 10 results on your screen below

7. If you look at your Hex editor there are 3 window panes on the selected line (See Image Below)

e.g 4CCC60h <-- Offset
01 01 01 01 < -- Hex Keys
yyyyyyyyy <- ASCII text where your code is



8. Go through each result from the above search and you will see on the 3rd window pane (as shown on pic above) after the hex keys there is an 8 DIGIT CODE (Write this code Down) this is your unlock code NCK for your phone

Sidenote: SCAN THROUGH EACH RESULT AND YOU WILL SEE THAT IN YOUR RESULTS SOME OF YOU MAY GET UP TO 3 DIFFERENT 8 DIGIT CODES WRITE THEM ALL DOWN NORMALLY THE 8 DIGIT CODE THAT APPEARS THE MOST WILL BE THE ONE THAT UNLOCKS YOUR PHONE THE OTHER CODES MAY BE YOUR FREEZE CODE BUT I HAVE NOT TESTED THIS YET THIS 8 DIG CODE SHOULD SHOW ON AT-LEAST ONE MORE RESULT CHECK ALL YOUR RESULTS FROM THE SEARCH ABOVE( SOME OF YOU WILL HAVE YOUR CODE SHOWN AT-LEAST 2 TIMES AND SOME OF YOU WILL HAVE THE CODE SHOW MORE THAN 4 TIMES) YOUR RESULTS MAY VARY EVEN UP TO 39 RESULTS AGAIN SCAN THROUGH ALL RESULTS

**** TO INPUT THE UNLOCK NETWORK CODE DO THE FOLLOWING ****

9. Turn off your phone

10. Insert a foreign SIM card not attached to your current provider (e.g if you have ATT use a TMOBILE SIM CARD) and turn on your phone

11. You will be prompted to enter a Network Unlock Control Key ( Use the code above that you wrote down and type it in your phone exactly)

12. After entering your NCK please hit Unlock or GO button and you should see a screen that says "network unlock successful" and your phone should go in the main screen after your phone has been unlocked.


THATS IT FOLKS HAVE FUN

PS> If you entered an incorrect code you must of entered the wrong code or wrote it down wrong please read carefully and verify the code matches the results from above in at-least more than one instance



SHOULD ANYONE NEED HELP PM ME AND I WILL BE GLAD TO HELP


personally my INFUSE 4G has been rooted from day 1 and wi-fi tethering enabled and now it has been Unlocked

You can go out and buy any SIM card not attached to your phone example buy a prepaid SIM like SIMPLE MOBILE / TMOBILE etc.. put in any sim card that is not your carriers basically it does not have to be an International SIM if that's what your thinking

Hope this helps

This one works and is much easier.

Also no root required (it does root the phone temporary but returns it to stock without you having to do anything).

If you read through the posts of the link you posted no all get the code some get NULL some get nothing in this instance you actually see the code you are risking in changing file on your phone and possibly bricking your phone. My method is a simple file where your code is hidden.

To each his own, various methods I tried that link before I did mine and did not work so I tried my own method and what would you know It worked

Thanks again though for showing the options


Note: Please post your results thanks

Thankz Sanfranx415, your unlock instruction worked perfect for me. One thing i have noticed, Terminal Emulator didnt like back space, so be accurate with those commands, other than that yours is perfect. Thankz again.

The freeze code is the code you would use if you tried too many times to unlock your phone
