SGS II Free SIM Unlock via nv_data.bin
If you read our article on the SGS 2 SIM unlock application which was based on the work of XDA Recognised Developer Odia, you might be interested in finding out the nitty gritty or perhaps want more control over each of the steps.

Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
