    This is not an unlock at all...
    It's called 2nd init.
    It allows recovery to be used on a phone with a locked bootloader, that is all.
    I have something for you to test out sortoh :)

    Did it, works just fine only thing is there is no boot animation anymore and when it comes on you have to lock and unlock it so should, but it's the same bottom combo (down and power)

    Use loki, you can remove anything and you wont have to worry :D
    Someone has to make a kernel though.

    I've removed some bloatware but it never hurts to free up some more space :D but if I had the time and knowledge I would consider trying to make a kernel. It will be awesome to start a cyanogenmod build cause I sure miss having that rom on my dead Galaxy s2. I'll post screenshots of my app drawer but I'm getting errors that the dimensions are way to big .-. anyways I'll be waiting for your guide :D

    LOL It's like we're an undeclared team. You always seem to have the files I need to work on a phone. Sweet, I'll check back. :D

    OK so I just built a modded kernel for this phone. It bypasses the locked bootloader with loki patch and allows you to remove any app on the phone without bricking.

    I need one person to test.

    If interested, let me know.

    Here it is... Just flash this zip in recovery. Then check to make sure that wifi and BT works.

    As soon as you've done that let me know for further instructions.

    My server was showing that one person downloaded this so I took the link down since I don't want people installing this till it's tested. Here it is again.

    Here it is... Just flash this zip in recovery. Then check to make sure that wifi and BT works.

    As soon as you've done that let me know for further instructions.

    Download - Link will be up for five minutes
