  1. Hi Root Junky! I have exhausted all tips and tricks to unlock a Moto G (XT1040) that what acquired from the Videotron carrier here in Canada. The phone does not ask for a subsidy code when we insert a sim from a different provider. Will we need to reflash the phone with a “generic” firmware?

    Thanks a lot in advaqnce for your help.
