I have a lot of experience rooting devices, but have never tried rooting an unlocked device from a different carrier. Thanks for your help.
Follow the steps for the N900A (ATT variant). By following the directions for another device you're asking for a brick.
Rooting a locked or unlocked device is no different. The only difference may be differences in the EFS/NV items after a unlock which are completely separate from the system.
