The ones doing the unlocking are charging 100$ or more for the "service", that is an exaggeration. I can live with my locked phone, there is no way I will give away 100$ just for that.

good for u.. y r u posting in here if ur not posting about the ROM?

I'm on the fence with unlocking.. Losing Samsung pay ( maybe not? Tweak to gain it back?) Is these COVID days is critical for me.. No need to touch things, no wallet.. Became important..

The deal breaker for me is eSIM.. Is unlocking and root allow adding an eSIM? Even if Tmobile will not support it on my S20+, traveling overseas ( some day when COVID is over) and using local carriers in Europe while having TMo sim sounds good..

So.. Is eSIM even possible on S20+ G986U/U1

Just flashed this last night, seems to be running beautifully, no issues so far, battery is looking good. Removed a dozen more useless apps, root is working great.

Running on a G986W with a Canadian Sim, everything seems to be working fine with my carrier (WiFi calling, LTE+...)

Thanks brother! Keep up the good work

Hello I have the same model with you .
Could you please tell me if this process trigger the KNOX?

My phone is Unlock for carrier but I don't know if that means that the bootloader is unlocked
