Default busybox/nand unlock

ok so i am just getting my SGS vibrant rooted. however, when i go to install busybox it tells me that i haven't nand unlocked my phone. just curious how i do that? i am able to be a superuser and i know that it is rooted but i am hesitant to go any further without being able to install the lag fix posed on the xda website [UTIL] One Click Lag Fix - xda-developers. i have backed up my current rom using rom manager and titanium backup. i'm a little lost although my vibrant is running faster than ever! any help would be great

I'm having the same problem on my Droid FRG22D. I rooted with Easy Root and have Superuser access but Busybox 1.18.1 downloaded from market says my phone is not nand unlocked. Trying to get Titanium Backup working but is needs busybox.

Same here, galaxy s rooted with one click and the busybox install says the phone may be nand locked. I do notice that it does say that the phone is rooted but it can not find busybox. Where is it looking for the software?

Default Nand unlock

I am having the same sort of problem with my Samsung Captivate running 2.1. I have rooted it and verified that. SuperUser is installed and working. I am emulating Verizon and have installed several non-Market apps.

I am trying to install BusyBox and get an error message that my NAND is locked.

Is there or does anyone know of a UNLOCK NAND program for those of us that are NOT developers but do want our phone to run as they were designed and not will all of that bloatware that AT&T adds?

Many thanks.

I had the same problems..

Just use the Titanium Backup "Problems?" Button.
There u are able to let Titanium Backup download Busybox! It installs a far older Version of Busybox, but after that it worked fine for me!


Just uninstall the other Busybox app.. It told me the same.. Not enough space and no nand unlock..

"Nand Unlock" for busybox: fail thread turned to success post

I posted the above in the sub-forum for my own phone, but had found this thread in the suggestions after typing in a subject line, so the above link is there in case someone might find what I found helpful.

EDIT: "fail thread turned to success post" has nothing to do with this thread here, and everything to do with the topic over in my own phone's forum. It refers only to the fact that I was going to post what that link goes to as a question to others, but then I had tried the fix that is mentioned in the post, and it worked. Hence, "fail turned to success". :P
