BTW, since I dont have any box, can Odin do anything else aside from installing firmware? I had used the default settings auto reboot and F reset time. and checked PDA.


I have only used it to install stock roms. I'm sure it does other things but I am not familiar enough with it to offer any advanced input....sorry. I never bothered to look for additional info since I learned to use the features I needed.

While I truly didn't intend to thank your post...

Make certain you are using the 4.1.1 radio with your 4.1.1 rom, that is an important detail.

I had a T889 on 4.3 locked, I just flashed a stock T-Mobile 4.1 on it, followed the simple steps described in the original post, and re-updated to 4.3. Worked like a charm and now my phone is factory unlocked.

I had a similar issue, and akdnj88 had the right solution for me.

I had tried to unlock with the wrong code (was using the code from another phone) and tried more than 5 times. I then googled and found the UMTS method, but found that my phones firmware is patched to not allow the final step, as many have said.

I then tried the official process to get the code from ATT. They sent it. I tried it. It didn't work. I thought "oh, the multiple failures permlocked my phone - Sh*t!" I decided to google how to unlock/root a permalocked phone and found this thread.

I read the post that said the failed UMTS method left the phone in the wrong state for the official unlock code to work, and gave it a try. Go back into the UMTS and at step 5. select - perso sha256 ON. reboot, insert foreign SIM, enter official unlock code.

SUCCESS!

unfortunately, I'm already home from my trip, so I still blew 25 EU on a sim+1GB data code I never used. PM me if interested in buying it from me.
- FRANCE ORANGE network. SIM + 1GB reload code. paid 25 EU, will take $25. arbitrage benes go to you
