HI all. Have successfully installed e/os on a Galaxy S5. Recently upgrade to 1.3 with no issues. Apps seem to work. Tried installing my SIM card (Canadian carrier FIDO) but get a SIM network unlock pin request at after boot up. Have contacted previous carrier (Telus) and they have supplied the unlock code but it does not work. I have tried multiple times and searched online for answers but don’t seem to get anywhere. I have turned off privacy settings in case that is preventing connection. This SIM card works with my other Motorola phone which i bought unlocked. Would really like to use this as a regular phone. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the reply! Does the factory reset mean i will have to redo the e/os install again or just delete any data and apps? I Contemplated that but was not sure what state that would leave the phone.
One more question. Is the procedure different for Factory Reset with e/os loaded instead of Samsung and carrier setups? Just not sure of the steps at this point. I know the standard is power, volume up and home to bring up the menu but not sure if that will be the same.
Another way is in Developer Options (enable, if not already enabled, then find and tap the build number 7 times); choose “Advanced restart” to add the option to boot into recovery directly on your shutdown/restart menu.
(At least that’s how it is on my Sony.)
Unfortunately i did not try unlocking before i loaded the e software which in hindsight would have been the smart thing to do. I have had no response from Samsung so far. I will keep playing around with it to see if i can get it to work.
Thanks again for the suggestions!
Hi all. Sorry for the late reply. I have had success with the samsung firmware and was able to unlock the device for my SIM card. Now i will reinstall eos and hopefully be on my way! Thanks again to everyone for the help!
