This procedure won't root your phone, it will allow you to unlock it using the engineering bootloader and our app.
If you prefer to root your phone please follow these instructions instead: https://idoneapps.com/forum/index.php?topic=648.0

1.) Download and install our app from here.

2.) Purchase the unlock from within the app.

3.) Go to Settings > About Device > and tap "Build Number" 7 times to enable "Developer Menu",
      then enable "USB Debugging" in the Developer Menu. Connect USB and more drivers may install.

4.) Connect the phone to the PC using an USB cable and wait for all drivers to finish installing.

5.) Browse into the phone folder and copy the IMEI.unlock file to somewhere on your computer (Desktop is fine).



6.) Power off phone completely.

7.) Hold Home and Volume-(down), keep them pressed and power the phone on.

8.) Press Volume+(up) when prompted to enter "Downloading Mode"

9.) Unzip SM-G935x_Qxx_Engineering_BOOT.tar.zip and select SM-G935x_Qxx_Engineering_BOOT.tar.md5 in Odin3 "AP" slot,
      then pust START on Odin3, the file will be flashed.
      Phone is start bootlooping, this is expected, continue with the instructions the issue will be fixed.



10.) Download and run Reseller Tools. Be sure the phone is still connected to the PC and USB debug is enabled in the developer options.

11.) Select your IMEI.unlock file as shown in the below picture, and then select your IMEI from the "Approved IMEIs" box.
        ResellerTools will validate your purchase and enable/show "Unlock Sprint S8/+" button (it works with the S7 Edge too). Press the button and wait a moment.
        You are likely to need to AGAIN accept USB Debugging when your phone prompts you so watch your devices screen.

12.) You should be greeted with Unlock Success message and your device will reboot.
        The bootloops issue will be also fixed.



13.) After the unlock you can flash the stock rom, download it from our repository.

Yes, global unlock means Domestic Unlock + International Unlock.

Anyway in order for the phone to works in the US you need to check if its IMEI is clean, if the phone is in loan or blacklisted it may be blocked by others carrier in the US even if unlocked globally. so check your IMEI here if you plan to use the unlocked phone in the US: https://ting.com/byod

I downloaded the latest 2.06 Unlock APK and instead of generating a "IMEI.unlock" file, it generated a "IMEI.zip" file instead.  With this zip file, can I still follow the guide and use the Reseller Tool to unlock my GS7E?

Please open the app once, the .unlock file will be generated by the app.
