Voodoo SIM Unlock for i9300 GS3

Just days after a root method for all Galaxy S3 variants was released, XDA Elite Recognized Developer Supercurio has done it again and released another extremely highly regarded application on the Google Market. This time, he manages to provide a solution to SIM-Unlock Galaxy S3 aptly named Voodoo Galaxy S III SIM Unlock.

How does it work you might ask? In the words of Supercurio himself:

one click, no reboot, safe

The app is an implementation of XDA Forum Member txlibre‘s procedure for SIM-unlocking the SGS3, which itself comes from Forum Member dagentooboy‘s thread on how to unlock all SGS models via nvdata.bin. Voodoo Galaxy III Sim Unlock is written entirely in Java, which means there is no busybox requirement for this application. The application requires root in order to modify the /efs/nv_data.bin, and sets the simlock bit from a 1 to a zero.

At this point, a reboot would be required. However using strictly Java, the application parses the /proc folder in order to locate the rild process which triggers the nv_data parsing again. This fails verifying the md5, which generates a log file, which contains the newly expected MD5 sum for the nv_data.  The system-generated MD5 is inserted in place of the original MD5.  It’s an interesting technique, and all this is done with just one click!

Download Voodoo Galaxy S III SIM Unlock  from Google Play. Get the source from Voodoo Galaxy S III SIM Unlock open-source project page Check out some of Supercurio’s other open  source apps on his project-voodoo github page.

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
