thanks for the correction. would you mind posting the commands so others may see them better?

if anyone wants to do it themselves open the bak file in any hex editor and look around the code is in there twice and is an 8 digit number

added an attachment that shows where it is located. the last box on line 515040 I just removed all the other information to make sure there was no identifying information to protect the source.

I have a Captivate and I believe I found it. I don't have another network provider sim to put in. I tried the #0111*unlockcode# with and without my AT&T sim in. It returns "Not registered on network" if I try without a sim card in. If I try with the sim card in it says running ussd code and then says "Rejected".

I'm using Hex Fiend (for Mac). I found (or at least believe I found it) near/on offset 5332044. Try doing an ASCII search for SSNV
