Guide - Unlock XT862 for T-mobile/ATT
Thought I would share based on my experiences on trying to get this phone to work on t-mobile. It works on ATT 3g/T-mobile Edge, but still a pretty cool phone to have.
Also another note, this is a mod that will only go through on Windows. You will need ROOT EXPLORER app for this method to work.
1 - Make sure you are on the stock XT862 ROM, if you aren't flash it via this method found here: http://rootzwiki.com/topic/4370-sbf-...959-and-56890/
2 - Make sure your phone is rooted, if not download the following and follow the steps found here: http://www.psouza4.com/droid3/
3 - Unlock the phone. This can be accomplished by purchasing the unlock code, and later entering the code upon insertion of a sim card. (T-mobile ATT sim cards will work, but you will get an error saying UNLOCK FAILED, this is NORMAL do not freak out)
4 - Download the following files and unzip it to your desktop: http://www.mediafire.com/?y1wjw775v8itsx3
5 - Click Start and open cmd.
6 - Type in the following in cmd:
'moto-fastboot flash radio radio.img'
ONCE it flashes, then enter:
7 - Use root explorer to push the build.prop into the system folder
8 - Reboot, select GSM/UMTS in Network Settings.
AND BAM now it works. If there is any confusion please let me know.
