  1. Hey. Thanks from New Zealand. My dad was living in Australia and I installed Cyanogenmod on his S3 i9300T. He came back to NZ and the phone was SIM locked. The Vodafone SIM unlock code would not work, this is potentially a bug with Cyanogenmod. I used your method to flash the original ROM successfully so thanks so much for this guide. Don’t have the right sized SIM to test the unlock but hopefully it will work now!
