    Hi guys, got a Xperia xz1 g8341 on US Verizon network I've tried to get it sim unlocked by two reputable unlocking sites but they can't unlock it because the imie although valid has no data?? But one site did mention the only way to get it unlocked is by using a local phone repair shop to do it as they use a certain cable to Overwrite the Firmware, does anyone know what this cable is, cheers guys.

    My guess would be some sort of jtag adapter. But you'll need to know which is the right one for your phone and how to use it, so the question would be how much of your time is it worth to identify the equipment and learn how to use it in order to save the price of having someone do it for you (assuming this is something you only need to do once, and assuming you can find someone with the kit and knowledge to do it)?

    If you are the original VZW customer who bought it from them the simplest solution would probably be to get the code from them. Of course if it's a second-hand phone that probably doesn't work.
