Title: How to Unlock J7 SM-J700P PD3+ (6.0.1) WITHOUT ROOT for Global GSM
Post by: Nodial on July 10, 2016, 03:35:27 AM
NOTE: This procedure won't root the phone, it's a FIX to achieve the unlock on J7 updated to PD3 or above.

If your phone is on a lower Software Version than PD3 then proceed to unlock directly (https://idoneapps.com/instructions.php#unlock_single). (Read this topic (https://idoneapps.com/forum/index.php?topic=147.0) if you don't know how to read the Software Version).
Our app will recognize if your phone needs this fix and will notify you it with a pop-up, if you don't see any pop-up when the app starts then you don't need this fix or you already applied it.

While if it is on PD3 or higher rom then you need to root it or downgrade to PB7. To downgrade it just download the PB7 rom from here:

Then use these instructions to flash it: How to flash a stock official binary tar.md5 file (https://idoneapps.com/forum/index.php?topic=228.0)

You will be able to update the phone again after the unlock, using either the OTA (Over the air) update or Odin3.
