I have phone on custom rom atomic rom. I want to unlock but was unsure if this is possible with custom rom installed. Will it mess up if I try doing it with my custom rom? Do I need to flash back to stock rom first before the unlock?
If anyone can help I would really appreciate it.
Also the mac address problem will this still be a problem or do I need to repair that after unlock?
Thanks for any help
Okay. The unlock tutorial is purely to allow use of the OMC on other networks, but if you do not follow the recommended back-up procedures in the tutorial you will loose stuff. Clockwork is a way to enable custom roms to be installed, but in this case it will get in the way of the unlocking process so needs to be removed. In any event the post-unlock procedure will, in your case, reinstall clockwork recovery.
So far as the tutorial is concerned, it has been modified so that the broken MAC address is no longer an issue. However, it is a good idea to make a note of this in case something does go wrong, and you can find the fix in another thread on this forum. I myself used this tutorial to unlock and even though it took me two weekends, it worked.
The beatings will continue until morale improves.
