So when it comes to unlocking phones (for USA people) it gets real annoying.
Your options are limited, especially if you aren’t in good standing with the mobile carrier:
- pay $30 for an unlock code from a sketchy website
- pay your mobile carrier to unlock it for you
There’s another option which involves using external hardware to flash your phone. The only ones I’ve heard of are Z3X box and NsPro Box.
I’ve noticed that its basically a box connected to the computer that acts a s a serial port. USB cables are then connected from the box to the target phone to be unlocked.
Does anyone know how this works? It would be great if we could figure out how to build one, and not pay $200 to unlock a single phone.
