    I just unlocked my S4 with lates 4.3 OS.
    The code was accepted (succesful?), after that screen went to my normal desktop, but after a few seconds, then it started to boot, then message showed "erasing", and phone reset to factory settings, so I lost everything.
    Phone seems fine now, I can make calls and dloading on wifi all apps I lost.
    But wondering if this was due to lates firmware, or perhaps something went wrong, and still is?
    I didn't see phone reseting after unlocking on any tutorial videos I watched,
    but again, those were made way before this lates 4.3 OS.
    Also, I entered the unlock code with the wifi ON, opposed to instructions.
    Did that really matter?
    Any thoughts please?
    Thanks in advance
