Sim Unlock Question
I paid £2.99 for a SIM unlock code off Ebay for my HTC One X (the seller had 99.6% positive reviews so seemed okay) but it didn't work after trying twice.
When I contacted the seller he told me I needed to unroot, go back to stock ROM and lock the Bootloader. I used the rooting method below and since I didn't flash a ROM I thought this meant I'm still 'stock'.
My questions are:
(1) Since I never flashed a ROM I am still stock, right?
(2) Why would I need to unroot and relock the Bootloader?
(3) How many more unlock attempts do I have?
Thanks in advance for your time.
My rooting method was (i) unlock bootloader (ii) flashed CWM with fastboot command and then installed SU from Zip using CWM.
