[Hack][Root] SIM Unlock for FREE - Info required
I am currently residing on the One S forums (don't have a One X), and have found (in conjunction with jh787) a working method of SIM unlocking the One S for free.
The method may also be applicable to the One X.
Part of the trick is obtaining an UN_Lock-code stored on the phone. On the One S this is found as follows:
1) You need root
2) You need Terminal Emulator (free from the market)
Open the Terminal Emulator app and type:
strings -n 8 /dev/block/mmcblk0p6
It will output several lines of data.
One the One S, towards the bottom are 2 lines. One contains your IMEI number, the other reads UN_Lock_code=063312345 (for example)
This is NOT the SIM unlock code - don't use it!
I believe that the One X uses a different partition structure, so the correct data may not be in the mmcblk0p6
If anyone can tell be the correct block for the One X, I will test the hack on your device and, if possible, provide a free sim unlock hack for the One X.
