    Version 1.4 works fine just shows "unknown". This has already been discussed several times. If you want an older version, here you go.

    Just so we're clear, this "unlock" tool is for unlocking the bootloader, it doesn't unlock the phone's carrier status (or whatever that's called) to allow you to use it on other networks.

    I have no idea how that all works, and perhaps the info linked to in the post quoted below can help answer those questions, but just know that the unlock tool you refer to is only referring to unlocking the bootloader for loading custom software.

    Hello,

    I tried the ez unlock and it said I have to be rooted first. Any easy roots for JB verizon gs3? Or does the purchasing unlock code method work? Thanks for the help

    This will give you root, custom recovery and unlock your bootloader. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2046439
