    So I've tried about everything imaginable to unlock the bootloader on this thing.. Has anyone been successful on unlocking a metropcs version with 11/2013 build (its under the battery)? before I make a list of things that DON'T work, I'll ask this first.. In the week and a half that I've had this phone, it's been wonky screened, bricked numerous times, read through about 1000 posts on xda it seems, flashed so many kdz's its not even funny.. It shouldnt be this difficult..

    Anyone? Ive seen so many people unlock the bootloader. wont take long to give a reply with a link and some info. most guides are totally messed up with links to other guides.

    I think people who have unlocked bootloader are using L9 from T-Mobile not MetroPCS

    i got metro and unlocked bootloader i followed this tutorial:

    (Tutorial)How To Unlock BootLoader P769 - YouTube

    Worked first try. followed every step and paused video so i did every step at the same time. Recommend turning off screen lock and turning on show screen touches.

    As far as metro or t-mobile differences, the p and ms769 are identical hardware with different stock rom variants. All custom roms are branded as t-mobile.

    I'm starting to think that that doesn't have anything to do with it.. there are people with build dates of before 08/2013 that haven't been successful unlocking also that seem competent on the matter.. it's something silly most likely.. hopefully :)
