General :: How To Enter Sim Unlock Network Code After Flashing To Custom Kernel / ROM
Jan 2, 2014
I have an xperia X8 with some naa kernel and xperiadroidx 6.1.The thing is that with this custom kernel and ROM when i put a SIM from another network carrier, the question asking for the SIM-unlock code input is not showing up. (this appeared before when phone was in stock state).Is it possible to do it without re-flashing to stock?
...or i have to put back the phone to stock? What is the easiest/safest/best way to do this? using the restore option in "PC companion" SE app? Is it only needed to put the stock kernel and ROM, or Do i also need to re-lock the bootloader?
I don't need the whole explanation, just a little guidance, just a few tips to know what to do, then i can google/search myself for the specifics on how to actually do it.
So I've been looking into flashing custom kernels, and I can't seem to find an answer to this question. Basically, I'm wondering if the kernel remains after installing a new nightly, or do I have to reflash the kernel every time the ROM updates?
I have samsung galaxy pocket duos gt s5302..I have rooted it and flashed CWM recovery then I tried to flash custom compact kernel made by Deadly. After I flashed through CWM my phone got hard bricked It wont turn on What should I do?
So I purchased a samsung galaxy s vibrant off somebody through kijiji, he said the phone is supposed to be unlocked, when I go into the network settings, I can choose between rogers, talus and bell, I choose talus, it says I'm with Talus. However when I can't make calls or send text messages, but people can call me, on top of this, when I turn on the phone it says enter unlock pin code, what is this code, how do I fix it?
So I was under the impression that you could use ROM manager or ClockWork mod to install a custom kernel that I had downloaded to my SDcard. I downloaded a low-volt, overclock kernel and I have discovered that I don't quite know to flash it to my phone.
I put modoco's 2.1 custom ROM on my phone and when I booted up my my phone it came up with the message SIM network Unlock Pin, so far I've contacted Orange and they refuse to help me unless I pay them 170 and they say its something wrong with the phone.
I bought Moto CLIQ and I got the unlock code when tried to unlock it, I missed a number..and after a few trials it goes to home screen with "no sim / insert sim card" notifications. How do I make the "sim network unlock code" entry reappear? now averytime I turn on the phone it won't show the unlock code entry again.
I flashed with "CWM-touch_i9082_chotu.tar.zip" and the the rooting as per this [URL] and it was successful.
But I installed font installer and gave access via superuser and after reboot, it dint turned on ( stuck on bootloader "Samsung")..
So I flashed SGG with stock rom via Odin and the phone got on, and again tried to flash "CWM-touch_i9082_chotu.tar.zip" but this time , i dint got the CWM. I am getting android system recovery instead on CWM... I cant root again!!
I tried flashing "CWM-touch_i9082_chotu.tar.zip" 3 time but only bin counter is rising.. i am getting android system recovery 3 <e> only...
I did a research regarding Flashing Kernels and Roms and currently i have installed Cyanogen 9.1 for my device.
1.Will I be able to update my phone and bring back to old ICS firmware via SUS once i brick my phone(I have already unlocked the bootloader via fastboot method)?
2.Evrytime when i flash the Rom(say CM9) i used to flash kernal(boot.img) for the respective rom.Is this necessary all the time? Will i able to flash a GB rom on ICS kernal(I am afraid to give it a test)?
3.Regarding CM9.1 which i have installed ryt now,I am satisfied with the performance,but i want a stable ROM wud make me happy with a better battery life unlike CM9.1. Any GB/ICS ROM which wud have a stable performance with descent battery life.
4.After using GB for a long time,i was very much addicted with the Phone pad kinda keyboard,but when ICS came into picture everything vanished,Smartkeyboard Pro is no gud,Touchpal is conjusted,i want the exact GB keyboard in ICS.

When I got my phone at the end of last year I rooted it using a Chain-Fire kernel - v 4.2, I think. After flashing, it worked perfectly, since when I have flashed the old bootloader to get my USB Jig working to remove the yellow triangle and flashed a patch again to allow the USB Jig to reset the binary counter.
I have very much wanted to install and get the new Sky Go application working.
What I had to do was flash the Stock kernel for my Stock Rom - I have never messed with my Rom - it is Gingerbread 2.3.4 in a CPW phone here in the UK.
Doing the flash and installing Voodoo OTA (to temporarily hide my root) has been enormously successful
Now then to my query....
The original Chain-Fire mod v 4.2 installed CWM.
After of course cancelling the "hide root" function to show my phone as rooted once more, I went to do a backup, using CWM but it refuses to work. It says my kernel needs v 5.0. Obviously the Stock Rom I flashed to get Sky Go working has thrown CWM some what.
I have downloaded Rom Manager from the Market but this seems not to work either - it starts to work (reboots) but then halts with the following messages: -
E : failed to verify whole-file signature
E : signature verification failed Installation aborted
What I would like is some way of installing a backup previously made before flashing the Stock kernal and also to make a fresh backup now.
I just went through the process of compiling a custom ROM and they used a stock kernel. I would like to incorporate a different kernel when I compile and instead of the stock. I know I could compile them separately and have them flash together but I want one zip to flash. Just would like to go through the process to learn.
I have Samsung Galaxy S GT-S7562 After rooting and flashing KyleOpen custom rom, the mobile worked just fine but there's no network while calling or receiving a call.. I went to maintenance service and they told me that it needs New main motherboard or something
I'm switching to use gsm phones and not cdma lke my currently company.So my friend has a droid( can't remember which one) and every time they tried putting in a sim card it would ask for some code, which I beleive would be the network unlock code.Now instead of doing the traditional method and buying an unlock code from the internet, would I be able to unlock the phone by maybe installing CWM and flashing a different ROM?
