Default [Q] Unlocking Rogers Note 2 that has a custom ROM?

Does anyone know how to unlock a Rogers Note 2 (modded with this ROM http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2016575 )?

I tried the instructions I found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2176721 but they don't work and I suspect it has to do with the fact that my phone is modded, but I'm not 100% sure. Does this method only work with a specific Andriod version? My wife's Bell Note 2 has the 4.3 update on it, but its not a custom ROM. I will try this unlock on her phone tonight.

I'm going to the US this weekend and bought a pre-paid SIM, however it will only work with an unlocked phone of course, hence my dilemma to unlock it.

What baseband version are you running?

IIRC, only the initial release, 4.1.1 basebands worked to apply that trick.

Here's a CWM/TWRP flashable zip of the I317MVLALJ2 (4.1.1, October 2012) modem to get you started.

As well as the I317MVLBMA3 (4.1.2, January 2013) or I137MVLUCMK3 (4.3, December 2013) to get you back to your current baseband.

Your wife's Note 2 may be a bit trickier since 4.3 has KNOX, but I'll let you look into that.

Good luck and happy holidays,
