As posted on the XDA forums, developers had hoped that they could find a way to have the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note to function on T-Mobile’s Network.
Last week, an XDA user, tomin.fhl, provided details on the required files to unlock the Galaxy Note and have it functioning on the T-Mobile HSPA+. With a trial and error procedure, tomin.fhl discovered that a modem flash will ensure that the Note will work faultlessly on T-Mobile’s network. Although other developers have been aiming to achieve such results, this has been the first time that every step was done in proper order. Based on the post of tomin.fhl regarding the hack on XDA, there have been no freezes or reboots for calling and data although signal strength may be feeble.
There are actually two ways for one to complete the task, but for both ways to work, you would need the 5.3 inch phablet that is rooted and unlocked. The first method which is the easier one calls for the need to download the preferred model profile and have this flashed through the ClockWork Mod app. You should also be running the latest version of the Saurom Project Team ROM as well as a data plan for T-Mobile once you’re done hacking.
To root and hack one’s device can be a complicated process and you should only try this if you have obtained all necessary information to guide you throughout the process. If you want to know more about how you can make an AT&T Galaxy Note compatible with T-Mobile, you can simply go to XDA’s official site.
