Is this true?



"I would if not for the fact there is no development for it and it has a locked bootloader which means it will never get a custom ROM unless it's TW based. But yeah, I've heard a lot of good things about it. Sure beats the Exhibit which unfortunately isn't hard to do as we all know so well. :-p"


Edit: haha answered my own question thank you Google!

I found this too. The official statement from this product saying they've added support for Samsung SGH-T399 is posted in a GSM forum HERE. The OP has some youtube videos showing the software and unlocking the phone's IMEI and stuff.

However, there is a note: Before performing "Direct Unlock" ("Repair IMEI", "Repair Network", "Read Security", "Write Security", "Read EFS", "Write EFS") operation for SGH-T399, you need to root the phone manually or write special firmware "SGH-T399_for_Unlock_and_IMEI_Repair" from Support Area.

Plus, one of the first replies to the tread was a user who tried it on the T399. I joined the site and asked this user who had successfully unlocked his phone using this software if this was legit. Turns out he managed to unlock the phone, but has not tried root. He suggested for me to try flashing the support file which has root incorporated. I told him to send me the flash file, if he can. We'll see what happens. That flash file might have what we need to get in. It might not work because their files come in proprietary extensions (Octopus OCT files for Octopus Box).

if he is able to root using it i can port cwm and everyone can root then.

OK - Since I can't delete this accidental and redundant post created with the Tapatalk app, without mod or admin assistance, I'll just post another link regarding hard resetting:

Maybe these YouTube videos can help?

Love following thread. Every device I've owned was always established as root before I owned. Very fascinating watching as it develops. Hoping for a happy ending and am willing to beta or alpha? test any solutions the community comes up with. Also will throw a little cash don at anyone as way of saying thanks. Cheers and good luck!
