I will attempting this a 3rd time. Do I need to continue doing this until it's unlocked?

I had to do it twice to get it to unlock correctly. Try powering off and boot back into bootloader and re-apply the unlock token. Bootloader at the top should stay Tampered unlocked at the top if it takes.

Only thing I did different from the post is fastboot flash recovery,img so I could flash viper

what is the "EXACT" filename in the /cache/ folder? I have not recieved the update but i am not very patient and have it downloaded. Everyone has it downloadable as "OTAPkg.zip" and i am just checking before i go through with manually flashing it in the stock recovery. seeings as i can't download it through the official servers until Tomorrow-Friday being the latest(and i am not that patient lol). Thanks in advance and glad to see everyone is getting through the update successfully so far!!!


keep on moddin fellas.


EDIT: because i cannot download the Update through official servers if i can find the stock recovery i am almost positive i can do it. but i havent been able to locate a stock recovery.img for our phones.
RE-EDIT: Found and flashed stock recovery to nop avail.

still looking for specific update.zip filename.

Thanks again

So, has anyone else done this without an issue? I'm ready to rock, just slow to pull the trigger.

Not many/any results in the poll above the OP.

i personally havent recieved it via OTA so im attempting manually with no dice. stock recover keeps failing i need to get the specific name if the file to re attemp it so the next person to get the OTA should screenshot the filename in their /cache/ folder for me so i can be possitive.

I have decided to give her hell and am almost done with the RUU/OTA UPDATE. I'll report back in a few when I get things all buttoned up.

Relock: Check
RUU: Check
Unlock: Check
Update: Check
Remained Unlocked: Check
