Probably too early to know for sure, but does anyone have any opinions on whether there will eventually be a conversion tool to convert a TMobile version into an international version for the 7t the way there was for the 6t? I would buy unlocked, but with my T-Mobile JUMP program I can get the 7t for approximately 70 bucks out of pocket.

Did you ever find a tool for this?

In the short term, no. You probably won't find one. I believe it has more to do with the fact that OP7T released with Android 10 and that's also impacting our ability to get TWRP fully working. It's a bummer that the Free Unlocking thread has been closed for now, but that's your only and best bet for unlocking early at this point.

If the unlocking thread is indeed locked then this is the only reason its not possible as the ability to convert to International has been available for months. My T-Mobile 7T is currently running the International ROM with zero issues.

Otherwise it would require either a friendly Customer Service rep or pay off the device.

I could have swore I posted this already. But anyway, there's absolutely no "tool" for this. But the process can easily be done, as I did with mine. Fastboot flash indian rom first, then do a local upgrade of the global rom.. Right now I'm running open beta 2, on the tmobile variant. There's a more detailed guide here on XDA on how to do it, but thats the basic steps.
